Jennifer Hudson is backtracking on her recent explanation as to why she did not take the role in “Precious.”  Jennifer Hudson told TMZ, her weight was NOT a factor when she turned down the role of “Precious”, she turned it down because she felt it was too graphic for her at that time.

The Weight Watcher spokeswoman contradicts what she told “Dateline” in a recent interview that aired earlier this week, when Jennifer said she passed because, “I would have had to be the big girl again.”

When Lester Holt asked if her decision to turn down “Precious” was motivated by fear of being typecast as a heavy actress … Hudson said, “I don’t like the idea of being boxed into anything.”

So what’s the real story Jen??
