Jennifer Hudson Has An Unpopular Opinion About 'Cats'

Jennifer Hudson looks amazing in a bright yellow dress while arriving for her appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers in New York City on Tuesday night (August 17).

The 39-year-old actress and singer has been promoting her new movie, Respect, in the Big Apple, and even stopped at a mural painted of her in the role of Aretha Franklin.

During another interview with Total Film, Jennifer opened up about another movie of hers, Cats, which got a lot of backlash from fans when it debuted in the holiday season of 2019.

“You know what? I think it was a bit overwhelming,” she admitted to the interviewer who asked about the movie. “It’s unfortunate that it was misunderstood. I think later down the line, people will see it differently. But it is something I am still very proud of and grateful to have been a part of.”

Jennifer then revealed that starring in the movie inspired her to get two cats of her own — and named them after the feline characters in the movie. One is Grizabella, her own character, and the other is Macavity, who was portrayed by Idris Elba.

“They are the best thing I’ve ever had. I love them so much,” she shared.

FYI: Jennifer‘s yellow dress is Versace.
