———>>>> Jennifer Hudson was offered the role of Precious, but she passed on the part because she didn’t want to gain the weight…
In her new book, “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down” Jen reveals she was approached by director Lee Daniels to play the gut wrenching role of the HIV positive teenage unwed mother being molested by both parents before Gabourey Sidibe.
“I had done that with Effie… and as much as I was moved by this film…I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight.”
Jennifer went on to star in “The Secret Life of Bees” and “Sex in the City” and Gabourey was nominated for her first Academy Award.
Well, Thank You Jennifer! BeCause Of You, ——->> Gabby was able to take the role! i think, She did an Outstanding Job!
