Leave it to Oprah Winfrey to get our favorite celebrities to reveal their biggest secrets. On Sunday night, Sept. 9, Jennifer Hudson had her turn chatting with the media mogul for her show, “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” And while dishing on everything from her relationship with her fiancé, David Otunga, to the devastating loss of her family, the gorgeous beauty surprisingly revealed that she’s had plastic surgery on her face.
“When I did Dreamgirls I actually had to get my dent right here injected because it was affecting the lighting,” Hudson said. “And when I got it done the doctor was like ‘I do not want to do this, do you realize people come in here and pay to have the lips you have naturally.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t want to, but I have to for the movie!’ ”
In the last few years, Hudson has also (naturally) transformed her body, going from plus-sized girl to a bombshell wonder as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. But Hudson admits that it wasn’t just her health she was thinking of when she lost the weight; it was also Hollywood’s pressure to stop being the “big girl.”
“Already I had lost like 60 pounds then, I was exercising everyday I got down to a size 12 and I got to Hollywood and they were like, ‘How do you feel being the big girl?’” says Hudson. “And I was like, ‘Who are they talking to?’ I literally looked around like this is normal, this is fine, this is average, where I come from it’s totally fine, so I couldn’t understand.”
“Another one they would say is ‘Do you feel insecure being a big girl?’” she continued. “And I thought, ‘Why should I feel insecure?’ I remember saying ‘I have the height of a model, lips people pay for, … things like that.’”
It’s brave of Hudson to admit to having cosmetic surgery. Then again, these days, a little filler or nip and tuck is pretty common in Hollywood and every other neighborhood. And Hudson isn’t the only star who’s gotten some work done. Check out some other plastic surgery stars below. – nicholas robinson
