Jennifer Hudson Covers 'Good Housekeeping' February 2012

Jennifer Hudson shows off her svelte figure on the cover of Good Housekeeping‘s February issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old singer and actress had to share:

On her former size: “Early on, I remember one of the musical directors telling me that everything about me was too big – my voice, my size, and my personality. [I asked her,] ‘Isn’t that what being a star is?’ Stars are larger than life!”

On her son, David Jr.: “What’s funny is that he’s never known me overweight. If he sees a clip of the old Jennifer from Dreamgirls, he doesn’t know who it is.”

On her fiance, David, and his Valentine’s Day rituals: “Let me tell you, this man goes bananas. When I wake up that morning in February, I can’t see through the house because he’s got confetti and balloons everywhere, rose petals on the floor, and candles in every single room.”

On satisfying cravings: “I’ll find a calm, peaceful moment, and I’ll sit back and eat my chocolate, which I make sure is really good quality, too. Quality over quantity!”
