*Admit it, Jennifer Hudson did get fine once she dropped the weight. And since the body transformation, she’s been getting a lot of attention. But it ain’t all glitter she says. In fact, the trim fit body has opened her eyes to a reality she didn’t think was there.

“In this slim world, I do realize I was being discriminated against. I’m offered more parts. There is much more excitement about me now,” she told UK’s Grazia magazine.

She did it with the help of Weight Watchers after she had her son. She went from a size 16 to a 6. While she wanted to be healthy, she also needed to drop the extra weight for her upcoming role as Winnie Mandela.

Life is better, healthier, and cuter, but she thought everything was all good with her heavier body.

“I never thought I was overweight. I thought my old look was pretty normal,” she said, adding that her new has definitely opened the doors for her. “Now, on this side, they treat you differently, the opportunities are different, my image is different.”
