Jennifer Hudson is nervous about portraying a heroin addict

  1. Rob Cypher
    She has surprised everyone by becoming not just a hugely successful singer, but also an Oscar winning actress.

    But Jennifer Hudson still gets nervous about taking on some of her grittier roles.

    The 31-year-old has revealed in a new interview she was ‘terrified’ before taking on the role of a heroin addicted mother in The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete. ‘It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point,’ she told Manhattan magazine. ‘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.’

    Jennifer was also nervous to portray the titular character in Winnie Mandela, which was released on September 6 after premiering at 2011’s Toronto Film Festival. ‘It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people there,’ she confessed. ‘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.’

    As well as chatting about her diverse film roles, Jennifer posed for a stunning photo shoot for the magazine.

    The Dreamgirls star flashed her cleavage in a frock with a sexy keyhole cut-out and spiky studded shoulder pad.

    She also showed off her slim figure, which she achieved thanks to being on Weight Watchers, in a skintight leather dress and matching thigh high boots.

    Jennifer, who graces the cover of the magazine, additionally sports a stylish trench coat and a cosy jumper in the images.

    While her acting career may be soaring, the former American Idol contestant hasn’t forgotten about her music and has a new album out next year. ‘This record is not about me playing a part or me as a spokesperson,’ she said. ‘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.’

    She does not need to worry i think. Movies about drugs (or really anything at all) are hardly ever realistic anyway.
  2. Scaryisonhisway
    So true. I rarely see movies that put across the true gritty, awesomeness that drugs have. IMO

    What about requim. Also while a scanner darkly is aabout a fictional drug, it portrays the effects in a very beleivavble way.
  4. Großschmackhaft
    Well, maybe if i knew what movie you are referring to with "requim", i could watch it and comment on your post. A scanner darkly deals with a fictional drug as you say and is not as much about addiction as it is about fascism, power and surveillance systems.

    Requim for a dream.

    Liked "Permanent Midnight" the book & Movie.
  7. Großschmackhaft
    I just looked up Requiem for a Dream, then i realized i had already seen the first half of the movie since i was interrupted in the middle. I remember cringing when they got dilated pupils from heroin, so that one isn't exactly realistic either, but since i didn't watch all of it, i can't comment on how realistic the depiction of addiction is in it.

    I'm sure she can portray her role! However, the method of using antibiotics prophylactically in farm animals has existed for decades. With an increasing amount of antibiotic resistance in individuals, however, the FDA has ordered farmers to severely limit antibiotic use.
