Kate Hudson Reveals 'Flawed' Relationships in 'Self' May 2014

Kate Hudson is her gorgeous and glowing self on the cover of Self magazine’s May 2014 issue, on newsstands April 29.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her relationships: “Relationships are the most challenging things. It’s where you do the most work in your life. You come face-to-face with yourself, and if you can deal with realizing we’re all flawed, accept it and work with it, you might have a really amazing, lasting relationship.”

On what drives her: “I want to be around for a while for my kids‚Ä”and also fit into the jeans I’ve always loved.”

On self acceptance: “I’ve had insecurities. I can look at a picture of Gisele [B√ľndchen] all day long and say, ‘I’ll never have legs that long or lips that big.’ You have to honor who you are.”

    I loved her answers here. Not only do I agree about relationships…people don’t understand what a tough job a relationship is. It’s harder than having kids. If you love your kids, no matter the hardship, you won’t give up on them…the same can’t be said about a marriage. I wish it could be, because if people worked a little harder, maybe so many wouldn’t fall through the cracks. I know that Kate gets a lot of flack for her acting, her wardrobe choices and other things, but I think there’s this thing about celebrities that the public views them as always needing to be happy with themselves because if they don’t like something about their appearance, they have the money to ‘fix it’. They also wonder how a celeb could possibly have insecurities when they have glam teams and personal trainers. I think no matter what your job and lifestyle is, there’s always that thing about “oh I wish I had her legs”, etc. No one is every 100% happy and no matter what you do, someone will judge you. It’ll be “Kate needs to stop wearing low cut tops” and then if she goes “her dress looks so matronly”. It’s “her lips are so thin, I can’t stand to look at her when she talks”and then if she got fillers it would be “oh another Hollywood actress going under the knife”. I see crap on Rosie HW’s posts all the time about her “boxer nose”, but if she got a nose job, there would be negativity about that as well. Sometimes you just have to ignore the haters and accept your flaws, but it’s so much easier said than done. I’m not rich, I don’t have a glam team, and I need to lose a few pounds, but I can still identify with how Kate feels. She works in a business where she’s surrounded by beautiful people who judge and get judged on ones appearance, but we all live in a society where people do the same. It sucks. Self acceptance is the coolest thing, if you can achieve it.

    sorry for my spelling errors

    I hope her marriage lasts. They look great together. Giselle can’t hold a candle to Kate Hudson. Kate has soft feminine features.

  • Annonymous

    Acceptance? Then why did she get a boob job?

  • Butch

    @Meg: You sound lovely, and you’re right on the relationship comment. Two people living and loving together for 20 or 30 years is hard especially when no kids are involved. Confidence Meg. That’s the best beauty trick in the arsenal. We all have insecurities, but confidence tells people “I really don’t give a f*uck what you think” and somehow that appeals. xo

  • Meg

    @Butch: Thank you very much for the response Butch! I completely agree. I have siblings that I don’t always get along with, but at the end of the day, I know I love them. I have friends who I’ve hit rough patches with and sometimes we stop speaking and never reconnect. That’s the difference with loving your family and loving someone you welcome into your family. It’s so much easier to cut the ties to those welcome in. I think if I had issues with a boyfriend the way I have issues with some of my family members, I would probably break up with them instead of working out the issues. That sounds really weird, but I hope my point came across lol.

    @Tonya: “Kate has soft feminine features.” Are you blind?

  • Smartypants

    I love how they keep her hair down covering up her Dumbo ears. She should have got those fixed when she got her boob job!

  • p

    She needs to get over herself and stop wasting time worrying about her body.
    I swear, the amount of time women spend thinking and working on their appearance is a huge amount of time they could be spending with their loved ones or accomplishing something else like a Phd or doing something productive for other people less fortunate or solving conflicts or anything

  • Meg

    @p: Your comment would probably be better appreciated if you weren’t so rude about it. On one hand I agree that I wish women could stop focusing and learn to accept themselves, but at the same time, there are many women who put on a pair of jeans uncomfortably and think “man I wish I had thinner legs”. I doubt that moment interferes with how they spend their time. I know plenty of people, myself included, who have had those moments and still have fantastic jobs (which some include degrees in the medical field). Kate didn’t say she spends hours worrying, she’s says she’ll look at Gisele and think that. A passing thought.

  • Meg

    @p: I forgot to tag this on. If you actually looks at a picture of Gisele ‘all day long’ as she says, then she has an issue most do not haha. But, if she was just exaggerating then I doubt it’s a big deal.
