Singer-actress Jennifer Hudson says she underwent lip injections for her Oscar-winning role in 'Dreamgirls' because her full pout caused issues for the film's lighting technicians.

The 30-year-old actress said she reluctantly had some work done to alter the deep Cupid's bow on her upper lip, reported Daily Star. "When I did Dreamgirls I actually had to get my dent right here injected because it was affecting the lighting.

And when I got it done the doctor was like, 'I do not want to do this. Do you realise people come in here and pay to have the lips you have naturally?' And I was like, 'I don't want to but I have to for the movie!'" she said.

Hudson's new look and her hard work on the 2006 movie musical paid off as she landed the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2007.
