Kate Hudson - "Vogue" January 2008

Kate Hudson -

You can’t keep a good woman down!

Kate Hudson comes up smiling on the January 2008 cover of Vogue. Here are some snippets from her interview:

On getting a divorce: “The most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life. The process of discovering with somebody that you love that you don’t… work is so painful. And thank goodness I did it with Chris… We helped each other through it. Now we’re both single and since the day we separated, we talk multiple times.”

On the last year: “It was just an extremely giant sort of leap. I definitely feel like I’ve grown up a lot.”

On shooting Fool’s Gold in Australia: “It was a really interesting time for me. It was right when Chris and I were getting divorced, and I didn’t want to be so far away, because it was hard for us. And it was the first time I sent Ryder to be with Chris while I was working, and that was definitely difficult. But it was probably the best experience I’ve had to date, in terms of everything as a whole.”

On fear: “I just love to have fears because I love to be able to conquer them each day.”

On why it ended: “We had Ryder, and we both sort of looked at each other and went, ‘Something’s off.’”

On Matthew McConaughey: “We’re like brother and sister! We seem to drive each other crazy in a good way. Matthew kind of puts it perfectly when he says that we fight well and flirt well, and we’re perfect pains in each other’s ass.”

On gaining 70 pounds during pregnancy: “I would be eating ice cream and my mom would literally pry the spoon away from me, saying, ‘You’ve had enough to last you a lifetime.’”

On Owen Wilson: “Owen is such a lovely person, and I love him dearly. And I wish him beautiful things — health and everything that he desires in life.”

    Did Kate do something to her face??? I do not remotely recognize her.
    Eerie.

    “We had Ryder, and we both sort of looked at each other and went, ‘Something’s off.’”

    UNFCUKINGBELIEVABLE! Can you imagine if ANGELINA JOLIE had said she and Brad went: “something’s off” after they had Shi???????????

    The Fcuking, amoral, lying, fat byotches who criticise every fcuking move Angie makes, would have a field day. And yet, here is blond-blue-eyed kate getting nary a raised eyebrow, even from the posters above.

    No wonder the good ole US of A is going to h e l l in a handbasket.
    BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA1

    Go China! take over the world! America is now officially full of more idiots than people with common decency and commonsense.

  • blackfriday1978

    #8… although your language is a bit strong, I cannot disagree a thing you are saying, and the sad thing is I am not even Angie’s fan!

    Anyway, I just hope these “hollywood people” don’t complain about tabloids taking photos of them AND their children while they are parading their kids out day and night… sad thing is that not even a good looking kid.. of-course something is off (as she said it herself)

  • duh

    she tries to hard to be cool and hip..jesus look at her son. sorry kate, he does not look “edgy”..he just looks like a poser.

  • shoes4life

    wateva: I agree with you. When I read that I was like boy it almost sounds like she is saying Rider is the cause of the failure of her marriage, but knowing how magazine like to edit stuff to their liking I am sure there was more to that and it was left out. Like you said if Angelina had made such a comment she would be called all kind of hateful names, scrutinized, and literally they would be ready to burn her alive. It’s all so high school to me.

  • Fantomette

    Huh? Photoshop Photoshop Photoshop. Hardly recognize her.

  • thegamingamine

    Oh excitement! I love Vogue, and Kate for that matter.

  • Jolie-Pitt

    I’m surprised nobody calls Kate Hudson a homewrecker for hooking up with Owen Wilson while she was married. America’s Sweethearts like Cameron Diaz and Julia Roberts get away with the homewrecker title, while people treat Jolie as if she’s the only homewrecker in history.

  • Anna

    Oh, well. And la-dee-da. Is she kidding? This is worse than shallow. Ask any kid from divorced parents.

  • Sara

    ew her nose

  • the_original_nika

    Word Jolie-Pitt. Some people are just too naive, others simple are haters that just hate about anything with no reason whatsoever, others idiots.
    huh!? and who the hell loves to have fears? no one, if you have one of course you wanna conquer them, but wanting fears!? duh.

  • liv

    wtf is wrong with her face on the cover?

  • sonitera

    Jolie-Pitt fans, I totally agree with you.

  • lily

    I like Kate but yeah I wouldn’t put it past editing her comments to sound like that. BUT please people, Chris was cheating and that was the demise of their relationship. Remember when she did an interview I think it was with Billy Bush and she said she just would “rather not know” and she doesn’t believe that people could be “monogamous with eacth other” soome crap like that.

    I am sure he cheated and then she cheated and realised she not down with that and decided to get a divorce.

    she needs to cut Ryder’s hair though. It’s so not cute.

  • Ace tomato

    I think more than photoshop happened to her face. She is, or was, so adorable. I can’t imagine why she would have changed a thing?

    And snaps for the Jolie Pitt comparison. Jolie could say she dreams of sleeping in one morning and the people who hate her would write novelettes on how that makes her an unfit parent.

  • zoe

    she looks beautiful on that cover! im dont like her or love her….she’s just an ordinary actress with good looks.

  • kate is no aniston

    at least kate was not as pathetic as aniston who has to keep on whining about a divorce that is over 3 years old

    Kate is absolutely fabulous, she has something special :)

    Yeah, And nobody called this girl a slxt or whxre, how many guys did she slept with after cheating his husband and after dumping Owen. she change her boyfriend as fast as changing her cloth, so does Cameron Diaz, , Drew Barrymore . Jennifer Aniston, how amny guys did this ladies slept with after separating from their partner ?
    I think if you were branded as the ” American sweetheart ” by the american media, you are free from the word S L U T for the rest your life.

  • lol

    kate is no aniston

    ITA, at least Kate doesn’t blame her ex and took responsibilty of the marriage failure, unllike Aniston, refuse to see her own failure blaming everything on her ex-husband (98% problem was on Brad and she’s2%)

  • Stefanie

    aww I love her! she’s great!!

    JEN ROCKS!!!!

  • remember da truth

    God, you people are such idiots! I knew EXACTLY what she meant…. They had Ryder, and that’s ALL they had. They no longer had a relationship with EACH OTHER. I was thinking, damn, here is yet another woman who could give Anuston a lesson on how to handle a divorce in a classy way. Never a bad word about her ex — because it was a MUTUAL decision, this is not high school, but two adults. Something was “off” — this is not how a relationship should be. They were parenting together, and that was it. So they divorced and they can still parent together, but with separate lives, and still be friendly and respectful to each other.

    No wonder America is going to hell in a handbasket? Yeah, if you posters are an example of America and how little you understand about human relationships!

  • remember da truth

    Ace Tomato — I agree she looks different, but that’s just makeup and lighting. ALL PHOTOS ARE RETOUCHED! I don’t know why people act like that’s such an “ah hah!” moment when they hear a photo has had parts smoothed out.

    It’s amazing what makeup and lighting can do. Christy Turlington would laugh that Cosmo could make her look busty when she’s anything but, with the angles and lighting. Sometimes photogs do a model “as” someone else, like Kate Moss as Marlene Dietrich, or Claudia Schiffer as Brigitte Bardot, and with a talented cameraman and lighting and makeup and a good model, can make it happen.

    As this is Vogue, I’m sure they wanted her to look more sophisticated than the California girl look she normally has.

  • remember da truth

    Anna — get over it. I’m a child of divorce and would rather have my parents happy and setting an example of how not to stay in an unhealthy relationship and maintain the friendship that drew you together first, than to follow some sort of imposed misery because that’s what you think society wants you to do.

  • Milli

    I Like her, but she sounds dumb here, I mean “I just love to have fears because I love to be able to conquer them each day.”

    Really!! Love to have fear,huh? Very smart indeed.

  • Kate Hudson fan

    People on the Internet are extremely intelligent eh. Who knew dating while in your twenties would make someone a slut? Grow up and stop throwing hateful words around. Its frightening to think wow if someone who doesn’t even know Kate Hudson is calling her a whore, I can’t even imagine how you perceive people in your day-to-day life.

    Just be careful with the words you throw around, step back from the keyboard and have a glass of water. Just because your online it doesn’t mean you should be snarky.

  • Michelle depp

    She is gorgeous & her little GIRL is cute too!!

  • Kendra

    Not much of a Kate Hudson fan but I have to admit these pictures are amazing! Can’t wait to get my issue to see more pics of Kate.

  • Aa

    Julia Roberts is a homewrecker, (she even taunted Danny Moder’s wife).

    Kate Hudson is a homewrecker, (she was still married to Chris when she started scr*wing Owen).

    Angelina is NOT a homewrecker. Brad and Jennifer’s marriage was over when Angie and Brad got together as a couple. Brad and Angie were just friends at first.

    ************************
    Yeah, all the above mentioned women have slept with mulitple men recently. They are sluts, all of them, even Miss Aniston.

  • Like

    I wonder if Kate’s a b*tch like her mother.

  • ME!!!

    um…way to copy victoria beckham’s cover! this is #2…first one was that tranny looking kiera and now kate.

  • WOW AT STUPIDITY

    Guys when she said something’s off she meant her and her husbands’ relationship. Usually kids bring you together but for tehm it was probably they got more attached to their kid seperatly.

    And you guys are all sad, so women arent’ allowed to date and sleep with guys without being called sl.uts. Seriously! what is this the 1900′s. GROW UP. They’re beautiful and they’re enjoying it, men do it all the time.

    And if your going to talk about slutiness please don’t use Angie to prove good. I mean I love her and think she’s uber talented but the woman made a career from breaking up marriages and sleeping with guys. Not exactly a moral high point.

    These are women who are living their lives. Let it be.

  • jenny

    she is usually very pretty…
    but when fotoshopping her ,especially on the cover, they did her no favour!!!!

    she looks creeeeeeeepy

  • Cynthia

    She’s ugly. She wanted the Jlo nose and failed!

  • OMG

    PRETTY…THOUGH NOT AS GORGEOUS AS HER MOTHER!

  • Miss windjammer

    Oh god… some day not too far away Ryder’s going to read or hear about this comment and assume his parents broke up because of him. Smart move, Hudson!

    She’s clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed.

  • fblue

    wow people need to relax. these are snippets from an interview that was probably much longer and edited down to suit the needs of the magazine. how many times do you hear about interviews that get totally taken out of context? i read that line and immediately attributed her comment to her relationship with her husband, NOT her son…obviously they both love him very much, that much is clear when you see them out and about. for goodness sakes they’ve all been going out together for the past few weeks!

    while i realize why jolie-pitt fans would go up in arms, the truth of the matter is that angie has made clear, direct comments regarding shiloh and her preference towards adoption. i don’t doubt she still loves shiloh very much but…yeah.

  • luckyL

    People like her on the cover deflect me from buying. She’s always been quite boring.

  • luckyL

    I’m more interested in Goldie Hawn

  • first comment on JJ

    when i saw the pic i thought she was that lady from the ‘according to jim’ show….courtney thorn smith

  • lolita

    @Jolie-Pitt:

    Angelina is a homewrecker because SHE destroys relationships and marriage while Kate– it isn’t considered homewrecking.
