Jennifer Hudson lands major movie role

Jennifer HudsonJennifer Hudson has signed on to play Nelson Mandela‘s controversial ex-wife in the new film Winnie, based on the biography Winnie Mandela: A Life, according to Variety. As a mother and wife, Winnie supported her husband during his activist years, and was imprisoned for protesting for his freedom and against apartheid. Her image began to tarnish after she gave a speech that seemed to advocate violence and her involvement in the kidnapping and murder of a 14-year-old informant was revealed. This is a golden role for Hudson, who says she is honored to have been chosen for such a project. Filming will begin May 30 in South Africa.

    Good for her! I’m glad she’s doing so well.

  2. tributegirl • November 19, 2009 @ 9:37 PM

    I’m very happy for her, she’s been through so much, but seems to be coming out of it all quite well.

  3. demigod • November 20, 2009 @ 4:45 AM

    Looks like she’s been thru a lot of food..

  4. Nancy • November 20, 2009 @ 10:20 AM

    Oh yes, the true colours of Demigod, yet again.

  5. Moviefan • November 20, 2009 @ 10:27 AM

    Very nice, Demigod. She just gave birth, by the way.

  6. gypsy • November 21, 2009 @ 1:01 AM

    Demig..classy statement,go back under your rock ya woman hating creep.

  7. demigod • November 21, 2009 @ 4:42 AM

    ‘Did anyone, including myself,say a word to you?’- Nancy lol Zero cred..
    Just gave birth? Somehow, I still think she’d be fat.
    Gyp, no reference to her tragedy. Feel better now? Didn’t think so.

  8. demigod • November 21, 2009 @ 4:54 AM

    I’m the puppetmaster pulling your strings Nance..not to be confused with being a troll haha

  9. Nancy • November 21, 2009 @ 6:26 PM

    Hahahaha…I have no strings! Even if I did, you’d be the last person pulling them! As for my previous comment to you and no one saying a word to me, it doesn’t make you any less of a rude SOB…besides, I came to this article right after reading about you causing BS with me on the Molly Sims article. What’s the matter, you can start something but can’t handle it? LMAO!

  10. Nancy • November 21, 2009 @ 6:27 PM

    Btw, you’re STILL a “troll”. 😛

  11. gypsy • November 22, 2009 @ 11:51 AM

    Demig.What tragedy? Your boyhood is showing again,typical response on your fat statement!Your very lucky Tribute censor’s the comment’s.What I really would like to put here would shrivel-up all body part’s.NOT THAT IT WOULD TAKE MUCH IN YOUR CASE!!!!!!!!

  12. Nancy • November 22, 2009 @ 4:46 PM

    Hehehehe…how true, Gypsy!

  13. gypsy • November 22, 2009 @ 8:21 PM

    Really Nancy, back in the day when you went out with a say 20yr old,the guy acted like a 20yr old.Now day’s I see and hear it all round me a 20 to 40yr old guy,act and speak like their 10 to 20 yr’s old.I don’t know what it is that cause’s them to be so obnoxious,arrogant,ignorant a@@ho@@s. When you go out on a date with one,as soon as they begin to speak you feel like your babysitting!!!!!Not like there wasn’t any goofballs year’s ago,cuz there was,but now-day’s it seems like the ratio of boys to men,in the same age bracket is 95boy-5men,it’s ridiculous.I even see it in young girl’s today,some don’t have a clue how good they have it compared to years ago.OH well times are changing,it’s a completely different generation,from when I WAS A TWEEN!!LMFAO!!!

  14. demigod • November 23, 2009 @ 4:17 AM

    Then why so much hate Gyp? Unless you’re a blimp yourself. Nothing you say could offend.

  15. demigod • November 23, 2009 @ 4:33 AM

    Another male-basher in our midst. I see why so supportive of Nance. True colours indeed.
    I call one girl fat, and you call men obnoxious, arrogant,ignorant a@@ho@@s..and I’m the hater lol
    Btw, your rant makes no sense.

  16. Nancy • November 23, 2009 @ 10:07 AM

    “Unless you’re a blimp yourself”…oh, that’s nice! Then you have the nerve to repeat my ‘true colours’ statement? To put it nicely in language suitable for all viewers….you’re an idiot! Why don’t you get off your own lazy “blimp” @$$ (hahaha, wouldn’t surprise me!) and back your BIG mouth up by giving some PROOF of me bashing someone because of their gender? That’s right….you can’t, because there is NO proof! So you run around here on Tribute, from article to article, spouting off your BIG mouth about something that isn’t true. Oh yes, that describes you perfectly, demigod. Totally describes the life of a TROLL!! 😉

    Btw, Gypsy’s “rant” makes more sense than any of your garble.

  17. gypsy • November 23, 2009 @ 4:14 PM

    Demig..Sorry to disappoint on the blimp comment!!Must of hit a nerve on my opinion of man child!!!Why so defensive ON MY OPINION OF MEN??? Did I describe your personality? Lets leave Nancy out of this, as she is a grown woman,and is fully capable of expressing her own views, as stated above!I’ve never seen her male bashing!!I definitely am a 95% man child hater,does that offend you,too f@@ken bad!!Your own comment’s on this site, as stated of all woman, are 99.9% negative.You expect us to suck it up,so I expect you to suck it up to!!I believe you have a very tainted opinion of all females!!! Jennifer Hudson is a very beautiful woman and a very good actress,yet you seemed to overlook that fact.You chose a racist comment to degrade the woman,as your usual MO on all articles concerning woman.Twenty seconds face to face I’d have you crawling back under your f@@ken rock,Pathetic excuse of a human!!Never underestimate the Wrath of a Woman, man child!!!

  18. Nancy • November 23, 2009 @ 4:47 PM

    Hahahahaha!!! Hey, she’s being nice. I’d have called you ‘Cave Troll’! LMAO!

  19. demigod • November 24, 2009 @ 2:23 AM

    Is this getting tiring for you yet? lol Calling Gyp a blimp wasn’t meant to be nice, ditz.
    Take up knitting..be productive.

  20. demigod • November 24, 2009 @ 2:34 AM

    Your opinion of men? What if I had said that about women?
    I’m sorry, did you say ‘leave Nancy out of this’? BWAAAHAAHAAA Try and stop her! I don’t need to mention her.
    I don’t find Hudson attractive at all (btw, that’s a wig she’s wearing). Good actress perhaps..was I suppose to comment on that? I call her fat, so that makes me racist too? lol
    You can stop your posturing, you’re not intimidating.

  21. gypsy • November 24, 2009 @ 7:43 AM

    That’s what I said,MY opinion of men!!!Demig who the hell are you trying to fool,you are constantly putting woman down,every f@@ken chance you get.Your reference to the wig means WHAT? Long or short hair,she’s still a beautiful woman.Your such a simpleton,play the game yourself,your way outta your league here!When you advance out of the Minor’s,get back to me man-child!I don’t play with little boy’s,that’s not my style!

  22. gypsy • November 24, 2009 @ 10:22 AM

    FYI..Demig..The racist remark was not in reference to her colour!!!There are other meaning’s for that word such as difference’s among groups,Tall/Short,Fat/thin,woman/man,young/old,and the list goes on and on!!OR it could mean A prejudiced person intolerant of any opinion’s differing from ones own!!I’ll continue to cop that attitude towards you,until you stop demeaning all woman with your arrogant remarks!!!!!!

  23. Nancy • November 24, 2009 @ 10:53 AM

    Demigod, Nov. 24 2:23 AM:

    “Is this getting tiring for you yet?” – YOU always were tiring for me.

    “Calling Gyp a blimp wasn’t meant to be nice, ditz.” – NO DUH! “ditz”!! Was calling me a “ditz” meant to be nice? 😉 I still think you’re a fugly Cave Troll, hahahaha.

    “I’m sorry, but did you say ‘leave Nancy out of this?’ BWAAAHAAHAAA Try and stop her! I don’t need to mention her.” – But yet, you do…comment after comment after comment after…. I told you, I’m NOT interested.

  24. demigod • November 25, 2009 @ 3:12 AM

    You actually buy all that Nancy’s been selling, gyp? You’re in HER league.
    Hudson does NOTHING for me. Having probs accepting other’s OPINIONS?
    And no, ‘racism’ is discrimination based on ‘race’. What you’re talking about is other forms of descrimination. Get your terminology right. Calling me a racist for saying Hudson fat is beyond dumb!

  25. Nancy • November 25, 2009 @ 9:51 AM

    …comment after comment after comment…

    “beyond dumb!” – yep, you are.

    “You actually buy all that Nancy’s been selling, gyp?” – Gypsy nor anyone else here has no need to buy ANYTHING I’ve been selling, “ditz”…your sexist comments haven’t appeared yet on this article but, they have been on many many others for everyone to see…for FREE, no need to “buy”. Jeeze, if you had more feet, you could fit them all in there, couldn’t ya?

  26. gypsy • November 26, 2009 @ 2:31 AM

    Demig Keep giving your opinions,I’m all for freedom of speech!!As for censoring your comments WHY would I wanna do that? You just keep beaking off,and the hole your digging will engulf all your BS.A man’s perspective,and you wonder why I hate most men.All the crap you spew out is hatred for woman,I have never read anything positive towards a female yet!!!At least I’m honest about how I feel about men,your still in denial!!!!!!!!!

  27. demigod • November 26, 2009 @ 4:51 AM

    Being ‘judged’ by you is meaningless. You’re not credible Nance. Why don’t you call out gyp for her remarks re men on THIS article. Hypocrite. But you won’t ‘cos you’re in agreement.

  28. demigod • November 26, 2009 @ 4:53 AM

    I don’t spew hatred gyp, you do that.
    Nance first..say something positive about a man lol Then it’s your turn!

  29. Nancy • November 26, 2009 @ 10:58 AM

    ….after comment after comment after…

    “Ummmm…okay “ditz”, point out to me WHERE I agreed with Gypsy “re men on THIS article”. I’m not a hypocrite. I don’t have to call Gypsy out on her comments regarding men…she’s already ADMITTED that she hates “most men”. You, on the other hand, deny your sexism towards the women in these articles presented on this website. Difference is, Gypsy doesn’t go on practically every article that involves a man/men and “spew hatred” and if she did, she definitely wouldn’t deny it and try to cover it up by blaming ME. As for myself, I haven’t spewed any hatred towards men…once again, point out WHERE I have. You have a very big mouth. People with big mouths need to back it up or shut it up. I have made it very clear that I do not like pedophiles, rapists, liars, cheaters and beaters…man OR woman! Just because I choose to be single doesn’t mean that I hate men. Far from it, “ditz”. I still have a dad, uncles, brother, sons, male friends, co-workers…never have a problem with any of them. Never have a problem either with anyone on this site because of the fact they are a man. So, run along now and bring us all something to back up your big mouth, cave troll.

  30. Nancy • November 26, 2009 @ 11:07 AM

    ….after comment after comment after…

    “You’re not credible”, Demigod…back it up because your accusations of me are false. Like I said, back it up.

  31. gypsy • November 26, 2009 @ 2:30 PM

    Demig..I’ve been honest and up front about my feeling’s on MOST men.Why is that so hard for you to understand? I have no need to hide behind anyone,I fear no one!!Just for the record,because I have a feeling your gonna go there,I’M not into woman either.Not that I personally have anything against it.I have friends that have same sex partners, and some of those woman belong in the same category that I put men under,as they also can be as brutal,ignorant,a$$ho!!s as MOST men are!!Now if that doesn’t help you understand, I really don’t give a flying f@@k. FYI I live with a real MAN,a warm kind loving dude who doesn’t boost his ego,by the use of demeaning comments towards woman!!!!!Something you seem to know nothing about!!!!!

  32. gypsy • November 26, 2009 @ 3:03 PM

    Demig..Forgot to add don’t try pitting Nancy against myself,as we have had different opinions on other articles.The difference being we RESPECT each-others opinions,even though we may disagree!!It’s called being MATURE,something else you know nothing about!!!

  33. Nancy • November 26, 2009 @ 8:42 PM

    That’s right, Gypsy. I even respect how you feel about men and I understand why even though I don’t have the same opinion. Yes, I do love being single but I don’t hate most men. I tried to understand it with Demigod too, at first, when he first started saying sexist things. I thought (and mentioned to him) that at some point at least one woman must have done him wrong but, he totally denied it, denied his hatred towards women, got pretty rude with me and blamed me, and it’s been that way ever since. He seems to think that I hate men…?? I never said anything bad about “men”. Just because I feel that people shouldn’t cheat on their spouses and that when a divorce occurs, unless there’s a pre-nup, each party is entitled to half, he thinks I hate men. Notice he NEVER backs it up though? Kind of hard to prove something that’s not true. Some people just have nothing better to do.

  34. gypsy • November 28, 2009 @ 1:32 AM

    Nancy.Even though you understand why I feel the way I do towards men, you don’t put me down for it! THANK YOU. This world would be a pretty boring place,if we all had the same way’s, thoughts and opinions on every single area of our lives.I think I remember months ago when you and Demig started to get into having your little differences on his attitude towards woman .I also kinda remember how you were trying to understand why all his hostility,I know you mentioned that perhaps he’d had a bad experience with a woman,and maybe that was the reason for his obvious disrespect for them.You were actually really accepting of his obnoxious remarks,at first!!Then when he got downright nasty and continued to degrade all remarks,you gave it right back at him,and I feel he deserved it, and more,if it had been me LOL.I definitely agree on your views of cheating,don’t matter if it be man or woman,I figure if your gonna do it have the decency to f- n leave.I believe that old saying treat others as you would want to be treated,goes for all humanity,no exceptions!!Common sense when your splitting up ,half to both parties unless, as you stated there’s a prenup.I being an idiot took nothing,figured they’d leave me alone, both marriages no support for kids,my choice,!! yet it didn’t make it any easier THATS FOR SURE!!!I gave up many moons ago,trying to figure out why men do and say anything.lmao!!Take Care!!!

  35. Nancy • November 28, 2009 @ 2:51 AM

    Well, your welcome but no need to thank me, I have no reason to disrespect you and put you down. As for you “being an idiot” and taking nothing when you left, sometimes you gotta get out quick and don’t have much of a choice. Oh, and many a man has said that they gave up a long time ago trying to figure women out, hahahaha. How true for both males and females!

  36. Nancy • November 29, 2009 @ 1:18 AM

    Unlike that “ditz” on here…I have EVERY reason to disrespect that piece of crap! That f-ing thing is another reason why I love being single! I’d abuse him for sure! No way in hell I’d put up with an idiot like that calling me “dense” and “ditz” and telling me he is smarter than me, etc. All mouth is what he is. Needs a good slap right in the yap…possibly more. Can’t stand people who think they can get away with that sh!t.

  37. gypsy • November 29, 2009 @ 2:32 AM

    Nancy don’t get so upset,he’s basically proving that everything said to him and about him is dead-on.His ego is squashing the brain matter into the size of a pea!!LOL He has no idea that everything nasty that comes outta his mouth is a form of abuse.Every time he tries to put you down with those nasty words,people see just what type and age of child he mentally is!!!And he has the nerve to say hes never abused a woman,he does it constantly on most articles,on this site. HE WEARS THE NAME MANCHILD PERFECTLY !!!!

  38. Nancy • November 29, 2009 @ 3:08 AM

    You’re right Gypsy, I shouldn’t let him get under my skin…he’s not worth it. My daughter and I were out at the mall Christmas shopping all evening then I come on Tribute and find he’s been back calling me dense and ditz. I’d like to see him say that to my face but I know he wouldn’t…all mouth. Anyways, I’m done my holiday shopping, YAY! Actually, I shouldn’t start so early because now that I am finished I will still see things that my kids will like and buy them, then I’ll have to even it up and buy more for the others…this will continue right up until Christmas eve…happens every year! I should know better by now, hahaha. Oh, we finally got our H1N1 vaccines! Glad that’s over with.
