Jennifer Hudson Latest Celeb to Take the Stand In Court (PHOTOS)

Jennifer Hudson gave a rather emotional testimony this week in the muder trial of William Balfour, the man accused of killing her mother, brother and nephew in 2008 — adding to the list of stars to have taken the stand over the years.

Charlotte Church and Sienna Miller both testified in phone hacking scandals, while George Clooney took the stand in an Italian courtroom in 2010 after some men allegedly attempted to use his image to promote a fashion line.

The trial continues today, April 25, after a few eye witnesses testified on Tuesday. The court presented some rather gruesome photos from the murder scene today and yesterday, but Jennifer left the room both days as to not view the images.

The Oscar winner, 30, took the stand on Monday. “I would tell Julia over and over again not to marry William,” Hudson, 30, said of her sister Julia‘s husband William Balfour (via Chicago Sun Times).  “None of us myself, my mother, or my brother, we did not like how he treated her and I didn’t like how he treated my nephew.”
