American Idol: Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson Star in New Weight Watchers Ad! (Video)
Jennifer Hudson is one of the most successful past American Idol contestants to date- both personally and professionally. Sure, she’s got a Golden Globe under her belt for her role in Dream Girls, hit albums and a recurring role on Smash in the horizon, but it’s her personal transformation that leaves everyone talking.
Since Jennifer’s time on American Idol she dropped from a size 16 to a size 6 with the help of Weight Watchers. She is now an official spokesperson for the brand. Weight Watchers just released its latest ad that features the Idol alumnus alongside pop diva Jessica Simpson.
Jessica joined the brand after attempting to lose stubborn baby weight. She lost 50 pounds on the program before announcing she is expecting again.
The girls are featured in the ad walking down the street before joining each other for a drink at a local cafe. Both discuss their body image issues in the advert. Jennifer touches on being “overweight” her whole life, while Jessica admits she’s always “obsessed” over her weight.
Jennifer shared her excitement with Jessica joining the campaign just after baby Max was born. She had nothing but inspiring words for her co-star in the ad. ‘I think she will do awesome,’ she said. ‘She’s a pro. She knows what she’s doing, for sure.’
There’s no denying these girls look fab. Jessica announced that she will not be on the program while pregnant with her second child, but will rejoin following the birth. Watch for this new ad on all major networks.
