Kate Hudson has always been a bit corny, but generally pretty harmless since she never talks about anything worthwhile (sample topics: not being able to afford designer dresses and losing her “rock edge” after having kids). However, she’s apparently decided to throw us a curveball by offering her thoughts on the very serious subject of two of her ex-boyfriends, Lance Armstrong and Alex Rodriguez, getting caught doping.
From InStyle (via Radar Online):
The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star tells InStyle that she was “as shocked as anyone” after Armstrong confessed to using performance-enhancing drugs throughout his cycling career – a career that included seven consecutive Tour de France victories.
Those victories, however, have since been stripped and the cycling superstar forever is banned from competitive cycling. And his former girlfriend isn’t afraid to express her agreement with the Union Cycliste Internationale’s decision.
“I personally think that you make the choices you make and you should reap the consequences,” Hudson told InStyle.
“Lance and Alex are phenomenal athletes who have made some bad choices and let a lot of people down,” she said. “It’s a decision they made for themselves, and they’ve got to loathe it.”
They’ve got to loathe it? What a bizarre thing to say. Frankly, I don’t think this is a topic that anyone needed her thoughts on – or anyone else’s, for that matter. What Armstrong and Rodriguez did has been discussed to the ends of the earth, but guess whose opinion really matters? No one’s, except maybe the athletic organizations that have decided to ban them. What they did was illegal and morally wrong, perhaps, but no one needs fucking Kate Hudson, a public figure, sounding off about it in a major publication. It just seems tacky – especially considering her prior involvement with them. As if she’s so enlightened, anyway.
