Jennifer Hudson keeps on truckin'
So much for the idea that actresses who aren’t skinny as a rail can’t find work in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter says Jennifer Hudson is following up her Oscar-winning debut performance in Dreamgirls with a turn in the all-star drama Winged Creatures. The movie, about the witnesses to a murder-suicide in a fast-food joint, features heavy hitters like Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker, nominee Jackie Earle Haley, Kate Beckinsale, Guy Pearce and Dakota Fanning. The only hangup for Hudson may be the fact that she’s recording an album and scheduling may be a problem, but we’d bet she can make time up by skipping American Idol viewings. [Photo: Getty Images]
