TV and Movies·Posted on Aug 19, 2021Jennifer Hudson Said That "Cats" Was "Misunderstood" And That "People Will See It Differently""Yeah, I got to be Grizabella the Glamour Cat!"by Natasha JokicBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink Hey, remember the 2019 movie Cats? Whether you've actually seen the movie, the way it was, uh, pretty intensely dunked on is hard to forget. Universal Pictures / Courtesy Everett Collection It got 19% on Rotten Tomatoes, baby! In my humble opinion, the highlight of the movie (relatively speaking) came from Jennifer Hudson's rendition of "Memory" as Grizabella the Glamour Cat. Universal Full disclosure: I watched Cats at an outdoor screening while drunk, and I had a whale of a time. Well, in a new interview, Jennifer spoke about the response to the movie — and she's feeling positive! Aaron J. Thornton / Getty Images "You know what? I think it was a bit overwhelming," Jennifer said of the backlash. "It’s unfortunate that it was misunderstood. I think later, down the line, people will see it differently." Universal "But it is something I am still very proud of and grateful to have been a part of. Yeah, I got to be Grizabella the Glamour Cat!" Universal Pictures / Courtesy Everett Collection In fact, Jennifer loved the whole thing so much, she even got two cats — one named Grizabella and another named Macavity. "They are the best thing I’ve ever had. I love them so much," she added. View this photo on Instagram Jennifer Hudson / Via instagram.com This is Macavity. Jennifer's comments are a departure from the dunking that some of her costars have engaged in since the film's release — see Rebel Wilson and James Corden making fun of the VFX at the Oscars. ABC Cult resurgence of Cats, anyone???
