Jennifer Hudson in Lucky

Jennifer Hudson took time out of her busy schedule as a mother, singer, actress and Jenny Craig spokesperson to pose for the January 2013 issue of Lucky magazine.

Inside, Hudson opened up about how she stays fit. “Going jogging makes me feel powerful and free — like Rocky! In winter I do the treadmill, the Stairmaster, I like challenging things. I always say to myself, ‘Just give me 10 minutes.’ If I do those 10 minutes – the next thing you know, it’s 20 minutes — I trick myself!”

As for her wardrobe, being a mom has definitely affected her style. “I totally dress for my child! I have T-shirts with Popeye the Sailor Man on it, ones with different animals, comic book characters.”

However, her style icon might surprise you. It’s her grandfather. “The most stylish person in my family was definitely him. He’d take you into his closet and be like, ‘Hey! You need to wear this, Jenny!’ He was [never] dressed down, honey, his closet, his clothes, they were sharp. He would pick things out of his for me to wear and they were always perfect. That’s why I love menswear.”
