“I’m the size of the average girl and my theory is that we’re not too big, they’re too small,” she said. “I would much rather have meat on my bones.”If you're reading this, Jennifer, I was wondering if I could borrow a little of that attitude. Good luck tonight, I'm sure you'll look beautiful and I'll be rooting for you. And as for those Oscar dresses you decide not to wear, I would gladly take those off your hands as well. You know, we wear the same size.
Though she’s lost the 20 pounds she gained for “Dreamgirls,” she’s not interested in dropping any more weight. “I would never want to be smaller than an 8,” she said, “and even that’s too small. I think 10, 12, 14, is a beautiful place to be.”

can I be Jennifer Hudson when I grow up?
I just found out that Jennifer Hudson and I are the same size, a 12. We also have the same first name. But while I still feel like the ugly duckling whenever I see the skinny girls in the gym and daydream about seeing a single-digit size on my clothing tags someday, Jennifer Hudson will stand on the red carpet with dozens of size-0 women, posing her heart out and smiling the whole time, immune to potential snide remarks from self-appointed fashion police Joan and Melissa Rivers. She has already survived her bout with Simon Crowell and came out looking much better than he did.
