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!”

    I never thought about it until someone put it in my head, but Jennifer lost her weight super fast. Like weight loss surgery fast. I want to believe she has done the hard work and lost the weight without assistance but how come we never see her coming out of a gym. No matter, I think she looks amazing.

    Whatever get over yourself anybody can do this without the stupid commercial your putting out there. I’m getting tired of hearing it. Beside your rich so that is why you look they way you do. She could stand to gain a few pounds and she is really milking it with all dough with these stupid commercials She does not mention about exercising. It’s all about money. .

    Is she ever gonna stop talking about her weight loss and start acting or singing or whatever? People lose weight every day, Miss Hudson, you really aren’t all that special. You were fat, now you aren’t; move on and if you’re that keen on being famous, be famous for your voice or acting skills. This is getting old.

    I can’t believe I’ m reading this stupid comments about Jennifer.America should be proud of her,because she is national treasure!She has voice like no other and she is your best ambassador.She survived tough times and she bounced back stronger and more beautiful and all you can say is : “oh she talks about her weight..blah blah…”She should be talking about weight loss because it’s very important.You,Americans are one of the most obese people of the world and that is not very good fact,I know.Your health is damaged and ,of course, personal dissatisfaction causes nasty comments about great persons like Jenn.
