Jennifer Hudson: Not a Techie Like Her SATC Character


Jennifer Hudson lights up the big screen alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in the Sex and the City movie, playing geek-chic Louise, Carrie's right-hand tech woman.

With a computer science degree behind her, Louise organizes Carrie's emails and calendar and revamps her outdated website, carriebradshaw.com, which by the looks of it still needs a makeover— so blah for Carrie!

Louise is also a big fashionista who drools over Carrie's divine Manolos and is a frequent customer of Bag Borrow or Steal for all the latest handbags. But in real life, Jennifer Hudson's tech knowledge is comparable to that of her fellow costar Chris Noth, who says he can handle the basics but that's about it.

To see what Jennifer had to say about her geekiness at a recent press junket for the movie, just read more.

How are your Mac skills?
I’m a Mac girl – MAC makeup and Mac computers. So I have a Mac computer, but I’m not a computer genius like Louise. And I’m not as organized as Louise, so don’t be fooled.

To get in an assistant kind of mode, I switched places with my assistant and I assisted him. So I would answer the phone, "Hello this is Louise speaking, Walter’s assistant, how may I help you?" to get into the groove of the character of being an assistant because I had never been an assistant before. And you don’t want me to be your assistant, trust me. I’d be like, you want me to get what?
