Queen Latifah Shared Her Response to Job Offers That Ask Her To Lose Weight in an Unhealthy Way Queen Latifah doesn’t have an issue with making adjustments to her weight for a role but she will not compromise her health in the process of doing it. Health is important to me. It’s not about losing or gaining weight. When I want to lose or gain I know how to do it in a healthy way. So if I have to do something that is going to be completely unhealthy for me, then that’s not the job for me. Latifah said she has no problem saying ‘no.’ I practice my no’s. I go in the mirror and say no, no, no like 20 times….I need to be ok with me…If I’m ok then I feel like I can do anything. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, how good are you at saying ‘no’ to things you don’t want to do?
