Did Jennifer Hudson get implants & a breast lift at some point in the past year?


Something strange happens to some women when they lose a lot of weight: they end up losing weight in their boobs. I’m still waiting for that to happen to me! But I’ve heard that it happens to some women, it just depends on where you lose or gain weight first. I gain weight in my midsection first, and I lose weight from my legs first. That’s the way the cookie crumbles! Anyway, when Jennifer Hudson lost a dramatic amount of weight several years ago, some of us noticed that her bust looked rather… deflated. She lost weight all over, for sure, but you could really tell the difference on her face and with her bust. But… over the past year, whenever J-Hud has worn a cleavage-y outfit, she’s been looking a bit “fuller” up top. Did she get a boob job?

I came across this theory in this week’s issue of In Touch Weekly – they did a comparison between J-Hud’s January 2012 boobs to her November 2013 boobs, and the difference is striking. Plus, they got a NYC plastic surgeon to theorize about what she had gotten done. Dr. Barry Weintraub tells ITW: “I believe she’s gotten implants… and a lift as well. Her cleavage is now more crescent shaped and sits higher on her chest.” In other words, her breasts simply look fuller and rounder. Which is true. I think she got a boob job!

The photos of Jennifer in orange are from the 2011 Oscars, when she looked particularly deflated. The photos of Jennifer in black & white are from last week. I really do think she had something done!

    for some reason she has always rubbed me the wrong way. it’s totally irrational but i cannot stand her or her singing/yelling.

    • Nadeni says:

      Same here! I feel the exact same way. I guess I don’t get all the fuss about her but that may be because I don’t like the yelling type of singing.

      • Anna says:

        Same here!!! Plus she got a star on the Walk of Fame before (imo) more deserving celebrities.

      • V4Real says:

        Jennifer has that old school church voice that stems from singing in gospel choirs. She has that heavy big voice. She sings in the style of Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin. These two ladies were and still are considered the best artists of their time. However I was never their biggest fan because I too dislike the scream singing or shout singing. Franklin didn’t always do it on her recordings but when she performs live I be like damn. So no, I’m not a fan either. Then again I used to listenen to heavy metal, there’s a lot of unnecessary screaming going on there as well.

    • Dhavynia says:

      Same here but it compensates for stealing the spotlight from Beyonce who thought she was the sh*t in Dreamgirls

    • Jules says:


    • Spooks says:

      I like her, but her porn face in the first picture annoys me. She doesn’t look sexy, just surprised.

    • Dimebox says:

      Ditto. I think that for me it’s because I got so tired of her yelling/singing in all those Weight Watchers commercials.

      • Metoo says:

        I couldn’t stand her in those WW commercials, ruining my songs “Feeling Good” and “Believe” with her over-singing. Also I know it’s nitpicky, but I can’t stand the way she says “Weight Watchas”.

    • amilu says:

      It’s not just you — I can’t stand to hear her sing!

      also – Maybe she gained just enough weight to fill in her chest a little; her breasts do look much fuller (not necessarily bigger) now. I’m just basing that on these photos. I haven’t seen her elsewhere. And like everyone else, I wouldn’t fault her for helping them out a little with cosmetic procedures. Her boobs looked pretty sad after she lost the weight initially. The terrible dresses with unflattering necklines didn’t help.

    • Poopsicle says:

      Is it wrong for me to say that she needs to do something about her laugh lines? >.>

  2. lucy2 says:

    Unless there’s some crazy built in support in that dress, then I agree she had something done.

  3. Maria says:

    I’m not sure but that dress does her absolutely no favors.

  4. Marty says:

    She probably did, loosing a significant amount of weight, plus if she breast fed after having a baby, would have made her boobs loose their shape as well as their size. The reason a lot of women lose weight in their chest area first is because it’s all fat right there. It happened to be me when I lost 65lbs as well, but I was always on the smaller side so I got a “natural” boob job.

  5. blue marie says:

    After losing all that weight, I wouldn’t blame her for getting a lift. Big girl boobs tend to sag so if you go the money then why not? Her hair in the top photo is not good.

    • Erinn says:

      I’d totally do it. I can’t fault her for that.

    • Spooks says:

      I know she probably feels much better now, and she’s probably healthier, but she looked so much better before she lost weight. Her face looks really harsh and the pixie ain’t helping.

      • blue marie says:

        I agree on the pixie cut, at first I liked it but it makes her face look to harsh maybe? She’s still beautiful, but I think I’d like it back longer.

  6. mom2two says:

    I would not be surprised if she did…between weight loss and having a child, I could see getting a breast lift (she did have a child too, right?).

  7. LadyMTL says:

    I think she did get her breasts done, because the “new ones” look way too round in some shots, especially when compared to the older photos. I know that a push-up bra can do wonders – they can really make my D’s look huuuge – but this looks way too extreme to be because of a bra alone.

    Slightly random aside: Kaiser, I am jealous of you. When I gain / lose it tends to be in my stomach and breasts first, never my legs. Wanna switch? Please?

  8. Hannah says:

    Those are very likely new.
    And she also hired a much better make-up artist, judging from these two sets of pictures.

  9. mk says:

    If you’re a classic pear or triangle, the boobs are first to go! My face/shoulders/collarbone/ribs are bony, but I have a behind that will always be at least a couple sizes ‘bigger’ than my dress size no matter what. More if I’ve been diligent in my crunches. My boobs were big in the teen years, but after I lost weight in my mid 20’s (like you do, living on gin and fashion) they’ve never really been the same. I put about 10 lbs on to save my face recently.

  10. Clever hand says:

    Not mad at all. I’ve been wanting a boob lift ever since my son was born but it’s too expensive for us peasants.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Haha, right?? After giving birth to 3 9lb babies and breastfeeding them all I’d get a boob job in a HEARTBEAT. I’m 34, but i have already asked my hubs if he’ll get me a boob job and a tummytuck for my 40th birthday. 🙂

      • Clever hand says:

        Omg so much. I have a friend who just plain has better genes and was back in a bikini three months after her daughter was born. My skin stretched so far that even after losing the weight there is no non surgical way to make it look right.

  11. Soccer Mom says:

    I am sure she did do something but at least it’s not drastic. I think she looks older than she is after losing so much weight.

  12. Merritt says:

    She likely had a lift. that is common after someone has significant weight loss.

  13. Alexandra says:

    Her hair is wonky and she looks heavier too – she looks better with a bit more weight; her boobs are too round and high to be real. I’m with some other posters – she’s never done anything for me but I wish her the best after what happened to her mom and nephew.

  14. truthful says:

    yeah, I would have too after the weight loss and the kid.

    I wouldn’t mind a lift now, just scared of the pain and surgery.

  15. Kate says:

    Yeah, it’s not even subtle. She needed it, so good for her that she went ahead and did something for herself. She lost a ton of weight and had a child, and her boobs showed the strain. She looks good now. They will eventually settle and look less bulbous.

    • Aenna says:

      After losing all that weight , its almost a given she’d get a lift.
      I lost around 120 lbs, but not quickly, over the course of a few years…unfortunately my boobs didn’t really lose much they just look weird.

      You also get allot of lose skin after a big weight loss , I did have a tummy tuck and they took a whooping 7 pounds of skin off, and it is a great relief.

      When I save up I’m getting a breast lift and side boob reduction to go along with the TT.

  16. Moiselle says:

    It’s a shame that she is talented yet all she is known for (now) is her weight loss and possible body modifications. It does seem as though that is what she wants though so I guess she’s fine with it.

  17. Jayna says:

    I also am not a fan of her belting yelling music. Although, I did love her tribute performance to Whitney at the Grammy’s. Out of that AI group my favorite is Fantasia. Her last two albums have been smokin’ R&B.

    And her performance at the Tonys a couple of years ago was chill-inducing. Oprah picked Jennifer to sing the same song at an event in honor of Oprah, and while beautiful, it didn’t have the soul Fantasia’s did.

    • Danskins says:

      I’ve always preferred Fantasia’s voice over Jennifer’s even though they’re both equally talented singers (and Jennifer fully deserved her star on the Walk of Fame for being both a strong actress and singer IMO).

      Anyway, Fantasia just seems to have more emotion in her music. “Free Yourself” will always be among my top faves.

  18. Angie says:

    Let’s not kid ourselves here…’cause we would all do the same if we were in her shoes! Being in the spotlight and scrutinized all the time has got to be difficult…gotta look perfect at all times! Would not trade my average, normal life for all that fame and fortune…no thank you! You look BEAUTIFUL Jennifer, work done or not!

  19. MG says:

    I’ve lost a lot of weight and my boobs really suffered. I definitely want a lift or something. Don’t like the idea of implants but my boobs need a pick me up.

    • Apples says:

      Unfortunately, you can’t just get a boob lift alone- you need to get either a breast reduction surgery that removes some skin or implants.

  20. themummy says:

    Yeah, she probably did. So? It seems pretty normal a thing to do after losing as much weight as she did. I’d have done it, too. Not news.

    (But I have to say that I agree with the posters who said they don’t quite see the fuss with her. Talent-wise, I mean. Meh. I probably don’t know what I’m talking about. I’ve only heard/seen her a couple of times at most.)

  21. Annie says:

    She looks heavier in the black and white than she does in the orange dress. Her face is fuller in the black and white dress. Maybe she’s just gained some weight back in her breasts, among other places.

    • Chinoiserie says:

      I agree, she looks heavier and since she is wearing a push up bra is hard to to know if her breast really are higher than they were before.

  22. Jan says:

    She definitely got new boobs. I always thought she should wear a bra more because her boobs were flat as a pancake. And while I like her there is NO WAY IN HELL she deserves a star on the walk of fame already. I know the celebrity has to pay for it, but still, she has not been in the business long enough to deserve one.

  23. TheCountess says:

    Those bolt-ons didn’t come from Mother Nature.

  24. Happy21 says:

    I don’t really care if she did or didn’t, those little beach balls look all kinds of terrible in that dress. Gross.

    And really the squished tits in the orange dress looked just as gross.

  25. mar says:

    she gets a pass from me, I was a huge fan on Idol ( I have not watched probably since that season) and I always felt she had something very special, even with the extra 100 lbs.

  26. RHONYC says:

    on observation of the close up shot it looks like she’s wearing one of those deep V bustier/bra thingys. 😉

  27. GeeMoney says:

    She should have either 1) gotten a push up bra and wore it EVERY time she stepped out of the house a long time ago or 2) gotten boob job sooner.

    Her breasts look good now, though. It looks like she went to a good surgeon.

    And yes, she does get a little screamy at times when she sings, but everytime I’ve heard her sing that song from Dreamgirls, she NAILS it. Go ahead, Jennifer.

  28. Betty says:

    And I am supposed to comment on her decision? Good for her,I hope she enjoys her new boobs.

  29. A Fan says:

    Dunno…but she used to look a whole lot better than she does now. Bigger is better in her case.

  30. Janet says:

    Very obvious-looking implants. But if she likes them, who is anyone else to complain?

  31. Jenn says:

    She’s got body/contouring makeup on them in the newer picture. I don’t know how comfortable I’d be with someone putting makeup on my boobs. Ugh. If they’re new ones, they’re not too big, just a little fuller, she lost weight, I don’t blame her. I don’t care for her caterwauling, but she got an Oscar and BeyBey didn’t, so…Muahahahaa! I’ll love her forever.

  32. j78 says:

    I dunno know, I really cant concentrate on anything other than her smug face.

  33. brionne says:

    I always wondered why her albums weren’t selling more. Now I see that she is considered too screamy and oversinging. I’ve heard this complaint about Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera….and sometimes beyonce. I don’t understand what this means. Are big voices with range and power turn offs? Are Pink, Fergie, LeeAnne Rhymes, and Carrie Underwood not also in this category?

  34. Meg says:

    couldn’t she just be wearing a push up bra? especially dresses that are so low cut, they push your boobs up

  35. Mari says:

    Those are breast implants for sure
