*Jennifer Hudson was the guest on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” last night, and the subject of her relationship with Beyonce came up on the program’s aftershow.
One caller asked whether her “Dreamgirls” co-star gave her advice on the set of the 2006 film, which was Hudson’s acting debut.
“I just remember her telling me, ‘You have such an amazing start. Like, no one gets this opportunity,'” the “American Idol” alum recalled. “I felt like just being able to sit there and watch and learn from her and Jamie [Foxx] and everyone else on the set, that was like advice enough.” (Hudson went on to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Effie.)
Another fan asked Hudson when she last spoke to Beyonce.
“Well, I just saw her not too long ago. The top of September,” she replied. Hudson explained to host Andy Cohen and fellow guest Andre Leon Talley how she keeps up with Beyonce’s latest performances, including her HBO concert film, “On The Run.”
“I actually watched it,” said the former cruise ship entertainer. “Anytime Beyonce or Destiny’s Child does something, I have parties. I always see it.”
J-Hud reflected: “When I first met them — Destiny’s Child, Kelly, Beyonce, Michelle, all of them — I was like, ‘Y’all have no idea how big of a fan I am,’ and they still don’t get it. In my ship room, in my cabin, it was all Destiny’s Child.”
