CHERYL GIBBS: Not a great film, but I still balled my eyes out

Have your say

In Hollywood, perfection is something everyone strives to achieve – whether they’re an actor, singer, producer or waitress.

They all want to look ‘right’ in a way us mere mortals have completely given up hope of ever achieving.

So I was surprised to read this week about Jennifer Hudson and the flak she’s getting because of her pretty dramatic weight loss.

Now the critics are saying that she’s too thin.

I can kind of understand we Brits suggesting the former American Idol star has taken her weight loss regime a tad too far.

But the US media criticising her? That’s odd.

I think she looks great. Yes she’s lost an enormous amount of weight – 80lbs is what they’re saying – but Jennifer is all the better for it.
