Jennifer Hudson Doesn’t Touch Alcohol
Posted by Adam
JENNIFER Hudson is a good girl — she’s never tasted alcohol.
The actress and singer admits she was initially terrified of playing a heroin addict in her new movie The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete — because she has never had a drink or experimented with drugs.
“It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point,” she said.
“I’m 31 and I’ve never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life. I stick with Diet Coke and Crystal Light and water.”
Hudson was also nervous about taking on the lead role in her other new movie Winnie Mandela and admits it took a toll on her.
“It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people there. To some she’s an angel and to some she’s Satan, but either way, woo!” she said.
“The strength that woman possesses is amazing. We put so much into the story, and it took a lot out of us.”
