Jennifer Hudson Was Almost ''Precious?''

Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson revealed that she turned down the chance to star in one of the most critically-acclaimed (and controversial) movies of the past few years; Hudson passed on the chance to star in Precious. In a recent interview, J-Hud says she was considered for the role, but didn't want to risk being type cast for the rest of her career.

"I had done that with Effie⦠and as much as I was moved by this film," she says. "I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight.â

Hudson has slimmed down significantly since her scene-stealing and award-winning turn as larger-than-life soul singer Effie White in 2007s Dreamgirls.
