Jennifer Hudson Covers Reebok Magazine, Talks Weight Loss, Nephew’s Death, Her Clothing Line & More! (Photos)

Actress/singer Jennifer Hudson, who is currently shooting season 2 of “SMASH,” graces the cover of Reebok magazine’s December 2012 issue. Where she opens up about her recent weight-loss, reason for doing a clothing line, holiday food temptations and more . Check out the highlights below:

On how she feels after losing all the weight:

“I’m getting used to my new self more than anything else. I got used to being plus-sized and knowing how to be that, whereas this is like, ‘Okay, who am I?’ I keep thinking that I probably need an extra-large or a large and the stylist is like, ‘No, you need a medium or a small.'”

On honoring her late nephew during the holidays:

“The Julian D. King Toy Drive and Christmas dinner is for kids who are doing well in school — just progressing, they don’t necessarily have to have all A’s or B’s — and we grant whatever their Christmas wish is. With everything that happened with our family, it’s hard to get through the holidays. So I was wondering, ‘How can we turn a negative around make it a positive thing?’ And so we came up with giving back.”

On why she decided to do her own clothing line:

“I know what I like, and that’s what it’s all about. It’s like, who’s your fashion icon? Me. And no one but you knows what you feel most comfortable in. I look at each piece and think, ‘Could I wear that as big Jennifer or could I wear that now?’ I want to consider every girl.”

On feeling closure after the trial:

“I mean, you can never fully get complete closure — whatever that means. Is there ever really a point of closure? Do I feel healed? No.” (Hudson’s former brother-in-law was recently found guilty of the 2008 murders of her mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew.)

On resisting holiday food temptation:

“My biggest thing is banana pudding, but it’s the devil! So no one is allowed to bring it into my house. Because I can’t control myself. So why put it in my domain?”
