Actress shuns party for exercise

Jennifer Hudson shunned alcohol over the Oscars weekend to keep up her gruelling fitness regime.

The Dreamgirls star – who won the Best Supporting Actress prize on Sunday night – has been on a strict diet and exercise programme and refused to break it.

‘Jennifer drank mineral water all night and didn’t stay late because she had to get up for an early morning workout with her personal trainer,’ revealed a source at Saturday’s Giant Magazine party.

Her self discipline paid off. The 25-year-old looked stunning on the Oscar red carpet in her tight-fitting gold Oscar de la Renta dress.

Accepting her award, Jennifer broke down in tears, saying: ‘I have to just take this moment in. I cannot believe this. Look what God can do.’
