Jennifer Hudson opened up in more ways than one during her first appearance on “Chelsea Lately.” Upon sitting down on the couch, her skirt bust open and Chelsea scrambled to zip her back up.
Once she was in place, the sober star, who’s never had a drink in her life, spoke about playing a heroin addict in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, which opens in theaters today.
In researching her role, she met with an actual drug addict. “She told me when you are high, she told me it was like an orgasm. I was like, I can do that part. I can fake that,” laughed J. Hud.
The Oscar winner even fooled the director, who thought she was acting when she was really sleeping in one scene.
The ladies bonded over their love for Pharrell, who produced Jennifer’s new single “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” featuring T.I.
