Jennifer Hudson says she’s never felt pressure to shed her curves for her Hollywood career.
“For the most part, I’ve been asked to stay the same [size] — ‘This is your image, this is who you are, you should stay here,’ which is fine with me,” Hudson, 28,
“I never really felt pressure to say, ‘OK, I need to be a size 2, a size 0,” adds Hudson, who welcomed her baby boy David Jr. (dad is fiance David Otunga) last August. “I don’t want to be that, and I will never be that. And that’s fine with me. So it was never, ‘OK I need to be this because this is the way Hollywood says you’re supposed to be.’”Hudson’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, leads her through 55-minute, lunge-filled workouts five days a week.
“Her middle, thighs and butt are more toned than ever,” he tells Us. “She’s excited about her new body.”
