Jennifer Hudson Talks 'Sex and the City'
Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson opens up to Entertainment Weekly about her new role in Sex and the City. Here are some excerpts:
Sex and the City is a pretty white show. I’m glad to know that an African-American character was added and I got to be that character. I think we all can relate to the show, [and] this makes it so we all can relate even more. And also you’re looking at these grown women going through these things, but there’s someone younger that’s going through these things too, so I kinda covered two bases as a younger character and an African-American character. I killed two birds with one stone!
Speaking of fashion, you won an Oscar and the next day people were tearing you apart for the metallic jacket you wore over an Oscar de la Renta dress. No, that night! We went to the Vanity Fair party and on every table were these magazines…and on the cover was my picture: ”Worst Dressed.” I was like, Wow, I’ve won the Oscar, I’ve got to take that stuff lightly. If it was just a Vogue event [Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley dressed Hudson for the Oscars], it would have been fierce. But people weren’t ready for it for the Oscars.
