Jennifer Hudson won't keep her Oscar in the bathroom because she doesn't want ''dirty hands'' touching it.

The 36-year-old actress-and-singer won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2007 for her performance Effie White in the musical 'Dreamgirls' alongside Beyoncé and Eddie Murphy.

However, the 'Spotlight' singer refuses to keep the award in their bathrooms because of the germs and opted for a special ''award wall'' to proudly display her achievements.

When asked by Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show (09.03.18) whether the prestigious golden statuette was kept in her toilet, she replied: ''No, not in my toilet. I have an awards wall and behind it is like my hidden office. So on the wall - it's a fake wall - and the Oscar sits in the middle and it says, 'Haaaaaa!' And then the BAFTA is on the side of the Oscar and the Golden Globe and all the other ones.''

Revealing why she doesn't want it near the lavatory, she added: ''No way, it's like don't put your dirty hands on my Oscar!''

Lorraine then asked if it felt like 11 years have gone by since she got her hands on her Oscar, to which she replied: ''Yes and no, because it's still very fresh in my mind. And at times it's like, 'So I have an Oscar? Like, really?' ''

Jennifer may not want her Oscar to keep people company when they have to relieve themselves but of her fellow winners do.

British actress Kate Winslet is one of the stars who keeps her award in her toilet so guests can be entertained when they pay it a visit.

She previously spilled: ''Everybody wants to hold it and go, 'Oh, my gosh,' and, 'How heavy is it?' So I figured if I put it in the loo, then people can avoid the whole, 'Where's your Oscar?' thing.''

Tom Hanks follows Jennifer's lead though and has the Best Actor Oscars he won for 'Forrest Gump' and 'Philadelphia' on a shelf used for his family's achievements.

He said: ''Where are they now? They are on the family trophy shelf, next to the soccer trophies, I think the World's Greatest Mom trophy from Mother's Day is up there as well.''

Gwyneth Paltrow refuses to display her Oscar because it ''freaks her out''.

She said: ''For weeks after I won, I kept it in storage ... I won't even put it on the mantlepiece, the thing freaks me out,''

And 'Tomb Raider' star Alicia Vikander hasn't seen her Academy Award since the 2016 ceremony where she won Best Supporting Actress in 'The Danish Girl' because it is staying with a friend, but admitted she likes to keep tabs on the statue when she can.

She said: ''I haven't seen him since that night! I very recently moved into my new place and, because I've been away working so much, I gave him to a friend in L.A.

''[My friend's] daughter has been sending me photos to prove she's taking good care of him, I love my little updates from her!''
