Jennifer Hudson was furious when she was Photoshopped to look slimmer than she was.
The singer-and-actress – who has lost over 36 kg over the last two years – was upset that images of her when she was bigger were altered by a publication to make her appear thinner, as she felt it was sending out the wrong message to her fans.
She told Dateline: “It’s like, ‘Where’s the rest of me?’ They Photoshopped me probably to the size I am now on that cover, when we all know I was nowhere near that. To me, it did not send out a good message. And it did not represent me well. Did I not just prove that talent is enough if I made it this far? Being who I am, being the size that I am?”
Last year, Jennifer – who has lost over five dress sizes following the birth of her son David in August 2009 – launched the Weight Watchers Jennifer Hudson Center in September in her native Chicago.
She said: “I never thought I would make it to have my own centre. I’m so honoured to be here and see this day.” A portion of the facility’s profits will go to children’s charity the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, which was set up by Jennifer in memory of her late nephew, Julian King.
