Jennifer Hudson Covers 'Manhattan' September 2013
Here’s what the the 31-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her upcoming film Winnie Mandela: “It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people there. To some she’s an angel and to some she’s Satan, but either way, woo! The strength that woman possesses is amazing. We put so much into the story, and it took a lot out of us.”
On playing a heroin-addicted mother in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister: “It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point. I’m 31 and I’ve never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life. I stick with Diet Coke and Crystal Light and water.”
On her upcoming album: “This record is not about me playing a part or me as a spokesperson. What we’re doing feels so right that I never want to go home. My sister and my manager will be sleeping on the couch while we work until 4 or 5am.”
