Jennifer Hudson Net-A-Porter’s The Edit

edit-jhud

Jennifer Hudson fronts Net-A-Porter’s The Edit.

In this new interview, the actress dishes on her new movie, Black Nativity and how life has been since her time on American Idol.

On her Oscar win:
“I didn’t know what the Oscars was. Where we come from, we don’t know anything about that world. If you see it on TV, it’s like, ‘Oh, people in fancy suits and ties.’ Jamie Foxx [her co-star] was like, ‘You know you’re going to win an Oscar?’ I didn’t pay him any attention. I was hired to do a job. That’s all I knew. ”

On her life post American Idol:
“It is so bizarre to me to say, ‘OK, let me go email Alicia [Keys], let me go email Beyonce, let me go talk to Oprah…’ For so long I sat and admire them; now I’m among them. What I feel about people you never heard from again is that they get too caught up in the hype. They think that just getting here is making it. No, it’s not making it. It’s like a losing-weight situation: it’s one thing to lose it, it’s another to keep it off. Well, it’s one thing to make it, but it’s another thing to stay. [That is] why you have to constantly do stuff to keep people’s attention. It’s a hustle, it really is.”

On her upcoming new movie Black Nativity:
“I turned down I don’t know how many [musicals]. What drew me to this is that it’s a holiday film: I’m a holiday fanatic. It’s uplifting – we don’t have enough of that in the world.”

The world loves Sandra Bullock and they just might love her even more as Miss Hannigan.

Bullock is currently in early talks to  play the mean, yet witty Miss Hannigan in the remake of Annie, according to THR. The film, which is being put forth by Sony with Will Smith and Jay-Z producing, has already cast Quvenzhane Wallis in the titular role and Jamie Foxx as a modern version of Daddy Warbucks, named Benjamin Stacks.

Carol Burnett portrayed the role of Miss Hannigan in the 1982 musical adaptation of the comic strip. Her performance has lived on in the hearts of many, but Bullock just might be able to pull it off if all goes well.

Will Gluck is directing the film. Additional producers on the project include Will Smith’s  Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Jada Pinkett-Smith with Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith through Marcy Media.

Sony is aiming to release the film sometime in 2014.
