A very slim Jennifer Hudson poses above for photogs as she made appearances during the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on May 16, 2010. Jennifer Hudson of American Idol fame is to star as Nelson Mandela’s wife Winne in a biopic entitled "Winnie."
The producers received a letter form Winne and her legal team stating that she demanded approval over the entire script and that she would sue if there was anything insulting abut her in the movie. Well Winnie better hope that the movie does not stick too close to the truth because it is well known that while Nelson was in jail and Winnie was running things she engaged in kidnap, torture, and murder of her rivals and those who refused to support her. This is not to mention the bank fraud charges Winnie was guilty of when she stole over $120,000 from the Women’s League of the African National Congress. Yes, Winnie Mandela would like very much to censor the script about her life… and for good reason! Photo: Fame Pictures
