Weight Watchers’ first celebrity spokesperson was actress, Lynn Redgrave, back in 1983. Since then a number of male and female celebrities have followed WW (Weight Watchers) and endorsed the program as ambassadors.
Surely you know Oprah, Jessica Simpson, and Jennifer Hudson, but there are some celebrities on this list who you might not know followed Weight Watchers. We even added before and after pics when possible.
Here’s a list of current and former WW (Weight Watchers) celebrity spokespeople, plus celebrities who lost weight with Weight Watchers:
1. Jennifer Hudson (Singer, Actress, Celebrity, WW Spokesperson)
You probably remember that Jennifer Hudson was an ambassador for WW Weight Watchers a few years back. In fact, Jennifer lost 80 pounds on Weight Watchers after having her son back in 2009.
She told People magazine, “My experience with Weight Watchers has been truly life-changing… I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me.”
2. Kate Hudson (Actress, Entrepreneur, Celebrity, WW Spokesperson)
Kate Hudson (no, not Jennifer’s sister!) is an actress, designer, celebrity, author, mom (of three!), and WW (Weight Watchers) ambassador. How does she do it all?
“I’ve got a baby who’s a couple of months old, a full-on teenager, and a seven-year-old. I think everything I do – from what I put in my body to the goals I set for myself—will reflect on them… My ‘Why’- my reason for joining WW; is to live the longest I possibly can for my kids.”

“That’s when I learned how to eat properly for the first time,” she told Women’s Health magazine in 2007. “Before, I used to be one of those people who wouldn’t eat anything all day, then eat a piece of cake at 4 p.m., McDonald’s at 10 p.m., and then go to bed.”
Although she seemed to find success with the diet, Tina Fey never served as an official spokesperson for Weight Watchers.
