Small Wonders: 10 Incredibly Shrinking Stars

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and we’re all feeling fat. Celebs are not immune to this feeling. In fact, they’re not immune to actually getting chubby. Like us, they stuff their faces on holidays, get a tad too amped at the craft services table, and gain pesky pregnancy weight. But unlike us, they can afford the veddy veddy best trainers, nutritionists, dieticians and lipo technicians. They can afford to pile on the pounds because they have the means to drop the lb’s faster than you can say “Jenny Craig contract.”

Last week, Christina Aguilera and Miranda Lambert showed off svelte new, slimmed-down figures at the AMA’s and Country Music Awards. In the past couple months since Princess North West was born, Kim Kardashian has gone from “Shamu”  jokes (and shame on the tabloids for that) to her pre-preggo, Playboy-perfect figure. And we’re not even going to go into Perez Hilton’s flirty new physique.

Here, we celebrate the ten sexiest celeb slimdowns of the past six months. Some post-Thanksgiving feast inspo!

How Did Jennifer Hudson Handle Playing The Worst Mom In Mister & Pete?


The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete is a heart breaker. It follows two boys, 13-year-old Mister (Skylan Brooks) and 9-year-old Pete (Ethan Dizon) who are left on their own in public housing one blistering hot NYC summer, facing constant hunger and the looming threats of nasty drug dealers and a group home with a terrible rep. It’s all clearly the fault of their drug-addicted prostitute mothers, one of whom is played with gritty realism by Jennifer Hudson. If it’s hard for us to watch, what was it like for Hudson, mother of 4-year-old David Daniel Otunga Jr., to act?

Who You Looking At? Guess The Celebrity Eyes!

Guess the Celebrity Eyes

We apologize if the image above is just a tiny bit creepy. As much as we love looking into the eyes of our favorite stars, looking at them THIS closely is pretty unsettling. Still, it’s pretty interesting to see how well we know the peepers of famous people like (spoilers) without seeing the rest of their faces. Also, this is a great opportunity to study their makeup techniques up close. Test your eye-q right here and now!

Kerry Washington, Watch Your Back! Jennifer Hudson Is After Your Job

Are we a little too Scandal-obsessed this week? Sorry, we can’t help it. But also, neither can anyone else. On the Daily Show Thursday night, Kerry Washington said it was astonishing how often real Washington insiders confessed how much they identified with the show’s story lines. And earlier this week, Jennifer Hudson starred in a Funny or Die spoof, “Scandalous,” sponsored by the White House (for the Affordable Health Care Act). When we sat down with Hudson, we asked whether she wanted an actual guest role on the ABC hit.

Actresses Without Teeth Is The Creepiest Tumblr We Can’t Stop Refreshing

Actresses Without Teeth

When people say that they “like a nice smile” in a prospective mate, they’re not really being entirely truthful. In actuality, a great smile means very little to most people if they’re not paired alongside an attractive set of teeth. This, we feel, is the great triumph of the new(ish) Tumblr site Actresses Without Teeth, which we think goes a long ways towards exploding the “nice smile” myth.

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Hudson Takes It To Church With “And I’m Telling You”

j-hud

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has the kind of vocals that could make the firmest non-believer walk down the aisle of a sanctuary to get their soul saved. Her voice alone will bring even the sinners to Jesus. Remember this is the woman who did not win American Idol. At the Oscars, though, she won big for stealing the show with one of the highlight moments of the night.  Read more…

Oscars 2013: Jennifer Hudson Gives Oscar Advice To Quvenzhane Wallis

Our Oscar Night Live red carpet special just wrapped, but just moments before it did, the most adorable red carpet moment of the night went down right in front of our cameras. We’ve already been ooh-ing and aah-ing over the precious Quvenzhane Wallis and her puppy purse, but when our own Janell Snowden introduced the 9-year-old Best Actress nominee to Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson, it was one of those magical moments that we’re lucky to be able to relive over and over again.

Jennifer Hudson sure has come a long way from placing 7th on Season 3 of American Idol way back in 2004! The soulstress got her start singing in a small church choir in the South Side of Chicago and now she’s an Oscar winning actress, Grammy winning singer, spokesperson for Weight Watchers and Mother to adorable son David!

From her humble beginnings on Idol to her recent dramatic weight loss, J-Hud sure knows how to explore her fashion horizons and we all can’t deny that she looks great doing it! You go girl!

Jennifer Hudson Before And After Getting Glammed Up On Smash Set

Jennifer With And Without Makeup On Smash Set

Jennifer Hudson was filming scenes with Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty on the Smash set in New York yesterday. And geez, did she stand out. Her wardrobe consisted off a hot pink mindress, edgy jacket and studded flats (which we now covet) but it was her face that garnered all the attention. Jennifer, on the left, came on set without any makeup on and didn’t care that there were cameras around. Not that she needs to because the woman’s skin is absolutely flawless. Was there any base on her because it’s ridiculously smooth? Her no-makeup look was soon transformed as she got ready for her shot and bam — glamazon! Big hair, defined eyes and glossy pink lips. We’d like a professional artist with us at all times too, thank you very much. But here’s the thing — now that we’ve seen the before and after shots of J.Hud, we’re totally loving the bare-faced version. If we saw her like that (with less messy, transition hair) in that dress and with those shoes, we’d still do a double-take because she looks awesome. Jennifer was also joined on set by her adorable little son David Otunga Jr. She also proceeded to change into a super glamorous black sequined dress afterwards. Click after the jump to see the shots!
