Now that she’s lost weight, her roles aren’t limited to the “big ones.”

In her upcoming book, “I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down,” the superstar singer will open up about how she cut the crap and lost the extra luggage to look as good as she does today.

So why did she turn down the role? After her role in “Dreamgirls” she lost a significant amount of weight and for the new part, she would have had to gain all that weight back and then some.

“I had done that with Effie… and as much as I was moved by this film, I wanted to try a role that had nothing whatsoever to do with my weight,” she reportedly says in the book. She instead went on to co-star in the first Sex And The City movie.

You go girl.
