Kate Hudson – unlikely friend to Lea Michele and an actress whose best role will always be Almost Famous in my mind – has revealed something perhaps slightly unexpected for a celebrity: she can’t afford designer dresses. Say whaaaat? I mean, it’s not actually what you think – it’s that she CHOOSES to spend her money more wisely and invest it in her kids rather than on an outfit she’ll wear once for a few hours and never touch again.
From Harper’s Bazaar:
“People think we own all these dresses, but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition.”
“I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could, but the truth is, things are just so expensive. Before [designer] Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable.”
I kinda find it endearing that she doesn’t waste her money like that and instead decides to put shit towards her kids, like an actual caring parent and not some Hollywood celeb. I do think she could afford to buy some designer stuff, mind, and that she’s probably given stuff semi-often. I mean, you saw how much designer shit even North West got for free when she was born!

Kate Hudson and Lea Michele are unlikely friends, aren’t they? But apparently, they got especially close when Kate Hudson helped Lea Michele through her devastating times. Here’s what Miss Michele told Elle, via Us:
“I called her and said, I don’t know where I’m going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters]. She was like, ‘Oh, you’re going to stay at my house.’ Like it was nothing. She let my family stay there, and any of my friends. She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices. I’ll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me.
They met when Kate Hudson did a cameo on Glee. I had no idea they got so close. Something about her having Lea Michele’s “favorite juices” makes me tear up. I think I’m just feeling sappy today. I don’t know. Anyone else? Let me know.
As for Michele going forward?
Now that I’m in this position, you can choose to rise, which is what I’m going to try to do. It’s very hard and you have to be very strong to come out of this alive, but I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don’t have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort.
Her attitude is brilliant. Good for her.
Here’s the cover. Honestly, I’m not psyched about it. The hell did they do to her makeup and why give her the early ’00s denim and jean jewelry belts??:

Listen, Kate Hudson is alright. She was mad annoying in Almost Famous, but that movie was the favourite of “artsy” kids when I was a pre-teen, so she gets a pass and it keeps her at one notch above “awful” territory. Unfortunately, her new interview with Elle drops her perilously closer to that thin line as she talks about losing her “rock edge” after becoming a mother.
“I’m a lot less a rock chick and a lot more about being a good mother, a good partner.
“I’m part of a family. That’s how we were brought up, how I bring my kids up. They are very blessed to live how they do but they are aware of that.”
Wait, so you can’t be a good parent and have a rock edge? Huh, that’s news to me. Also, in what world did she have a “rock edge” to begin with? Sleeping with musicians doesn’t count, last time I checked.
“It was all very old-fashioned and proper and we went on lovely dates. And two months later I was pregnant… Well, yes [I was shocked], but I also thought. ‘This is going to be interesting’.”
“I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it. You know that with a relationship things can go either way when you have a child. When you get pregnant everything changes; you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision.
“But he was there and that was that. Now it’s three wonderful years later. Things happen for a reason.”
Yes, I imagine it would take a strong man to deal with fatherhood, just like it takes a strong woman to deal with motherhood and a strong person to deal with personhood, etc. I love that her first thought after realising she was pregnant was that it would be “interesting”, like having a baby with some band bro she just met was some kind of social experiment. Maybe I just see Kate Hudson as her SNL impersonation of Drew Barrymore in my head too often, but she just sounds… not all that intelligent. No one’s hating on having babies early in a relationship because shit happens, but come on, girl.

Anyway, the brunette hair is for a movie Hudson’s filming, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which hits theaters in 2013. From IMDB:
A young Pakistani man working on Wall Street finds his approach to life changes after 9/11.
The film also stars Kiefer (yay!) Sutherland and Liev Schreiber, but you probably don’t have to worry about seeing this. I mean, all signs point to the world ending sometime in 2012, so they just may as well scrap this whole project. As a matter of fact? Scrap all projects that won’t be ready for 2012. There’s some extra money for you, Wall Street protesters.

Man, aren’t parental guilt trips the worst? It’s like, yeah, I haven’t called my grandma in forever, but would you want to call someone if all they said to you was “you’re going to hell, sinner”?
But Kate Hudson‘s parental guilt trip sounds a whole lot worse than the conversation I have to have every now and then with my mom, because, see, Kate Hudson’s dad wrote it in the form of a book that’s described as “not a Hollywood tell-all, but instead an emotional outreach.” And so it begins.
“Kate doesn’t have to talk to me and she doesn’t have to give her a dime of her millions. All I want is for her to call and say, ‘Hi grandma’, before it’s too late,” Bill said. “I love Kate, but… She has done stuff which is just awful. She is a spoiled brat in my eyes and at the end of the day, she should meet her little sister. I should meet my grandchild and she should help her grandmother.”
Ok, I agree that in a solid amount of situations, it’s important to stick with your family, because in a solid amount of situations, they’ve done good by you. And I also agree that Kate Hudson seems like kind of a pill, but you can say that in a letter, you know, or you can write it in your diary or get a Tumblr or something. Ain’t nobody gonna take you seriously if you publish a book telling your daughter to call her grandma. Right?
