Jennifer Hudson: 'Precious' Was Too Graphic

Jennifer Hudson is all smiles as she signs copies of her new book, “I Got This” at Barnes and Noble at the Grove on Thursday (January 12) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old entertainer recently dispelled rumors that she had turned down the lead role in Precious due to being required to put on more weight.

“I did NOT turn down the role because of the weight thing,” Jennifer told TMZ. “I turned it down because I felt it was just too graphic for me at that time.”

FYI: Jennifer paired her Balenciaga dress with Lanvin shoes.

    Jen, your handlers are whhhoring you out for money and in the worse way. Take a step back. congrats for losing the weight(don’t lie about having surgical help), but you’re heading in the wrong direction.

    Many many people have done the weight loss book thing…you’re neither a nutrionist or a doctor…let it’re an entertainer. Get on with entertaining.

    You are becoming tiresome and losing it on the singing acting front.
