Jennifer Hudson For Daily Mail UK

Jennifer Hudson talks about her career and personal life in a recent interview and photo shoot with Daily Mail UK.

On her success so far: ‘To be able to sing at this level is a blessing in itself, and I got publicity for what I was doing before I dieted. But never to this extent. Now, whenever I open a magazine, I seem to see myself there. And I get to dress up every day and have someone take photos of it all. For someone who loves fashion, it’s like living the dream. Of course there are those mornings when I think, “Please don’t look at me right now!” But you just have to pull yourself together, get out there and do your job. I mean, how lucky am I to be in this position?’

On motherhood: ‘When it’s mommy time at home, the supermodel me – black Barbie, as I call her – is definitely not in the house. I don’t want to be all glammed-up in big hair and full make-up. I need to relax, to breathe and to concentrate on my son.’

On the murder of her mom, brother and nephew:  ‘You have no choice but to keep going. What else are you going to do? It’s called life and you’ve got to be prepared to deal with whatever it brings your way.

On her upcoming movie Winnie: ‘When I signed up for the project I wasn’t even pregnant, and when it came time to go, David Jr was too young to travel with me. I was away for four months, which made it the hardest thing I’ve ever done. All I could do was try to channel the feeling of missing him into my character, because Winnie was stripped from her family too, so I was able to understand how she felt.’

On her advice to her fans: ‘My message to young people is to stay positive and not to doubt their dreams. There are things we long to do in life but think we’re not good enough or clever enough to make happen. Just go for it! Dreams do come true. If anyone’s proof of that, it’s me.’
