    Uh Terrence Howard,…what an a$$hole. I don’t know which comment of him I liked best. “Women are dirty and dress like whores nowadays” or “Rihanna will forgive Chris Brown, cause the they love each other”.

    Jennifer Hudson is and always have been a very gorgeous young lady. I am also glad she has a great co-star in Terrence Howard. He is soooooooooo fine. They will both make a great delivery in their roles in the movie Winnie. Now as for the accent she will do what the movie calls for.

  • Mimi

    Someone might win another Oscar…

  • elle

    She looks like she’s lost even more weight, she looks good.

  • Dasiy Duck

    Terrence Howard as Neslon Mandela? What?!

  • wow

    This role has Oscar written all over it. It will be interesting to see how she does the South African accent.

  • Katie

    Actually 27 years according to what I have read, Ms Beth.

  • beebee_cta

    She is one of the few people in Hollywood that has the kind of face I could just stare at for hours. There’s something about her features that is so warm and kind. I don’t know if she’s like that in real life, but in pictures she looks so nice and sweet.

  • tracy

    What designers shoes is she wearing, Jared? Please find out…

  • skorstensstillads

    This was a seriously awesome post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – taking time and actual work to generate a good write-up… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and in no way seem to obtain some thing accomplished.
