We’ve got your first look at award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson and Hustle & Flow star Terrence Howard as Winnie and Nelson Mandela on the South African set of the controversial new biopic Winnie.
Although Madikizela-Mandela fought for more than 26 years to win her husband’s release from prison, the couple divorced in 1996 after 39 years of marriage.
Despite the protests of South Africans — who wanted a local actress cast for the role –Hudson, who scored a best supporting actress Oscar for 2006’s Dreamgirls, is tackling the ambitious part of Winnie. For her part, Winnie Mandela has effectively refused to have anything to do with the film.
Lensman Darrell James Roodt is directing the South African-Canadian co-production.
