Kate Hudson covers the July issue of InStyle. I saw this cover and immediately thought it looked nothing like Kate. This totally looks like her body, but there’s a lot of photoshop above the shoulders. Airbrushing happens to almost every celebrity or model, but it never stops looking unreal. Which is a shame because Kate has such a natural prettiness.
Kate’s wearing a Michael Kors bikini with a matching silk top. She gets a little defensive in this interview. Maybe Kate’s wary of internet interference after those Matt Bellamy breakup rumors, but a lot of her attitude is geared towards bloggers. She is also wondering why we all care so much about celebrities’ plastic surgeries. Kate says we should just let people go get butt implants if they want them. Is she also referring to her (rumored) breast implants? Kate was pretty small up top when she filmed Fool’s Gold in 2008. By 2010, her chest grew larger. She never confirmed implants, by the way. Let’s do this:
She wanted fame: “I joined the circus because I wanted to be part of the circus. I have a rebelliousness in me. I’m not interested in perfection–that’s the whole point!”
Paparazzi are the worst: “I just look at the paparazzi and mentally cut their heads off.”
Bloggers are the 2nd worst: “The negativity is just so vast. Will everybody stop being so damned judgmental?”
Talking about celebrities’ plastic surgery: “That’s like asking someone if they see a therapist–and why? If someone wants to go get butt implants, then sure, go get butt implants. The real question is, How do they treat the person next to them? Are they a–holes or are they awesome?”
Her exes, Lance Armstrong & A-Rod: “I personally think that you make the choices you make and you should reap the consequences. People have a right to [feel betrayed]. Lance and Alex are phenomenal athletes who have made some bad choices and let a lot of people down. It’s a decision they made for themselves and they’ve got to loathe it.”
She keeps in shape by dancing: “When I’m up there, twirling around, doing my pirouettes I look totally crazy.”
On Goldie Hawn: “My mom was a trailblazer. She was one of the first women after Katharine Hepburn to produce her own films. She had this extremely feminine public image, but behind the scenes there was a real, persevering strength–wanting to get things done, fighting for what she believed in, and being successful with it.”
Females in Hollywood: “I don’t think it’s changed that much. Do women still have a more difficult time in the industry? In terms of what they get paid and getting movies made, that’s just a factual yes. Nobody can debate it.”
Kate’s discussion of gender in Hollywood is fair. Just like in most industries, actresses usually make less than their male counterparts. Kate made some good money for awhile. She’s led an odd career by starting out with an Oscar nomination for Almost Famous. Then she trapped herself in romcom city. Kate had no problem appearing in vacuous roles for a decade, but then things fell apart. People got tired of seeing her play the same role. Before she knew it, Kate was starring in video-on-demand “cancer comedies.” Oof.
Kate has been smart enough to start supplementing her income by co-founding an athletic wear company called Fabletics. The clothes are cute but nothing groundbreaking when it comes to workout clothes. But I’d definitely buy them if they guaranteed a body like Kate Hudson’s.
