Jennifer Hudson is the new face of Weight Watchers.
The Oscar winner has lost around 60lbs since she gave birth to her son David Jr. with her wrestler fiance David Otunga last August and she credits the company’s eating plan for helping her achieve her new slim-line figure.
During an appearance on TV show ‘Good Morning America’, she told host Robin Roberts yesterday (01.04.10): “I decided to do Weight Watchers. I feel like I’ve conquered the world… It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet. I don’t really diet as such. I actually get up and work hard every day.
“I make sure I eat right and just make sure I stay focused. It is about being consistent and sticking with it.”
Hudson was also adamant to point out she decided to lose her excess pounds for herself and to set a good example to her son, not to conform to Hollywood’s idea of what is beautiful.
The star – who was known for her fuller figure – added: “I was very comfortable with myself before. I have a child now and I want to set a great example for him. Make better life choices, health choices, and just create a good example for him growing up.”
The 28-year-old actress – who won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in 2007 for her performance in ‘Dreamgirls’ alongside Beyonce Knowles – will appear in commercials for the company and will act as a spokeswoman.
She follows in the footsteps of other famous faces, including Jenny McCarthy and British royal Sarah Ferguson, who have acted as spokespeople for Weight Watchers.
