Jennifer Hudson entertains millions of viewers inside their homes each day thanks to her talk show - but when she's not working, she has one impressive abode to return to.

The EGOT winner lives in a $3 million, 12,000 square-foot property in Burr Ridge, just 17 miles from Chicago. While she is very private about her personal life, the Respect actress has on occasion given fans a glimpse inside her majestic estate, just check out her open-plan living room in the video below.

The home was custom-built back in 2007 by the previous owners before Jennifer snapped it up. It features six bedrooms, and seven bathrooms and was covered in Brazilian cherry floorboards, although it appears Jennifer has done some major remodeling to suit her own tastes.

In April 2021, the American Idol star gave fans a peek inside her spacious living room, which has enormous ceilings, marble floors, cream furniture with gold accents, black netted curtains, and there's even room for a grand piano.

Jennifer gave fans a second look at her palatial reception room in September, opening up the doors to her immaculately decorated living space, complete with ultra-chic monochrome furnishings, grand high ceilings, and a spiral staircase that wouldn't look out of place in a palace.

Of course, being the star she is, Jennifer has her own music room, with one wall decorated with hanging guitars, and her own office to keep track of her important dealings.
