Hudson and her beau, Danny Fujikawa, walked the red carpet together at the premiere of her new film, Marshall, at the Urbanworld Film Festivalon Saturday, where the cute couple shined as they posed for photos
Fujikawa rocked a chic black-on-black ensemble, while Hudson shimmered in a stunning, skin-baring Stella McCartney gown.
The 38-year-old actress stopped to talk with ET's Carly Steel, where she praised her boyfriend -- who was nice enough to hold her clutch as she spoke with the press.
According to Hudson, the video is actually a throwback clip that came about when she and her trainer were looking at some of the star's old summertime workout videos while hanging out and reminiscing.
"I didn't have a summer this summer, I was working all summer," Hudson explained.
"Me and my trainer were looking at all these old videos on a Friday, drinking a glass of wine and I found it and I was like, 'Oh my god, do you remember how funny that was?'" she recalled. "We were just being goofy."
As for her role in Marshall -- which retells one of the formative court cases in the life of Thurgood Marshall, played by Chadwick Boseman -- Hudson says she was "quite intimidated" to take on the role of a real-life socialite named Eleanor Strubing, who accused a man named Joeseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown) of rape. The film follows the legal railroading that subsequently occurred, and recalls the accusations, the increase in racial tensions, and Marshall's efforts to get Spell a fair trial amid a climate of judicial and systemic racism.
"It's a hard thing to make a choice to play such a challenging, difficult character, but the complexities are intriguing," Hudson shared. "As an actor, and at this time in my life, those things are kind of what are turning me on, so to speak, so it was a challenge."
