Jennifer Hudson was spotted out yesterday, walking in Beverly Hills without an ounce of makeup. And the 38 year old actress looked amazing.

The actress/ singer showed off her curves in a black leather jacket and black leggings, and looked to be in a great mood. She was caught by paparazzi as she was shopping at XIV Karats, Ltd. with friends. 


Jennifer is a talented actress, having nabbed the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2007 for her work in Dreamgirls.

The mother-of-one has two projects coming up, which will showcase her musical talents.

Jennifer will star alongside a list of singers including Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, James Corden and Rebel Wilson in the musical, Cats. 

Jennifer will no doubt have a chance at another Oscar with the biopic she's currently filming.

The Chicago native will star as Aretha Franklin in the new film, Respect, coming out next year.

The drama also stars Marlon Wayons, Audra McDonald, Mary J. Blige, and Forest Whitaker, among others. 


Jennifer first rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, she came in seventh place. 

Jennifer may have started her career as a singer, but she successfully pivoted into becoming a world class actress, making her film debut as Effie White in Dreamgirls. For that role, Jennifer won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress. 

She also appeared in Sex and the City (2008), The Secret Life of Bees (2008), and Black Nativity (2013). In 2015, she made her Broadway debut in the role of Shug Avery in The Color Purple.

Jennifer is currently filming 'Respect,' where she places the title role of R&B legend Aretha Franklin.
