Kate Hudson says her son wears a splint for attention, can’t wait to have more kids


Kate Hudson on the Late Show part 1. She comes on at 2:30. Part 2 is below

Kate Hudson was on the Late Show last night and I found her so funny and likable. I’ve seen Kate interviewed before and she’s usually very comfortable and just rolls with the punches. On Letterman she mostly talked about her six year-old son, Ryder, and you could tell that she adores him and finds the things he does so funny. I have a son right around that age and I could really relate to a lot of the stories she was telling.

On how Ryder goes to a French school
Kate explained that Ryder goes to a French school, and that he has a week left in Kindergarten there. She said that he’s there because the school is flexible about their schedule. “What happened was is due to travel schedules, it was sort of a school that would accommodate the traveling circus family. He had a hard time, but now he’s sort of loving it. He’s into this thing where if the ladies like it, it’s cool… He’ll show off his accent, he’s getting into it now… he’s really learning how to communicate in French.”

On how she wants more kids
When Letterman joked about how his kid was entering first grade this year and is so old he’s started smoking, she said “It makes you want more. For me, as a woman… I can’t wait to have more kids.”

On how Ryder fakes an injury to talk to people
He wears this splint around his hand and there’s nothing wrong with him. He just likes it because people ask him what happened. So I literally watch him make up stories every time somebody asks him about his splint…

“He’d be like ‘I was on a bike, and I fell off this bike…’ and then one time he was climbing a rock… T-ball was one, and then he said to me the other day. He goes ‘Mom I figured it out! A splint, a shower, a shave, cologne. The ladies love it!’

There’s nothing more fun to me than watching your kids come up with stuff like that.”

On her diet
Letterman made waffles on the air using a waffle iron right on his desk. He gave one to Kate with butter and syrup and she said she initially didn’t want to eat it, but then gave in and had a couple of bites.

I’ve been doing this calorie counting thing.”

“Yeah, because you’ve really let yourself go,” Dave quipped.

But I actually do let myself go, but I’ve been calorie counting and it works. Right now if I have three bites it’s like 100 calories.”

On her movie The Killer Inside Me
Kate is promoting The Killer Inside Me with Casey Affleck, which Letterman called “just about as creepy as a movie can get.”

She talked about a scene in which Casey’s character is spanking her. “There’s a scene where Casey’s actually spanking me… All of a sudden it hits you that you’ve been spanked like 20 times, and you can’t help but start to laugh even though it’s such a horrible subject. Then there’s the other side… it’s actually quite a gruesome movie, and it was tough at times.

Kate was a lot of fun and I’m reminded how bubbly her personality is. It won’t get me to see this movie, but she sure is doing a great job promoting it. I love my kid too and think he’s the funniest little guy. I’ll give Kate a pass for her frenetic dating history. No matter what she’s up to, you can tell she’s really enjoying life and that she just cherishes this time in her son’s life.

  1. WTF?!? says:

    Why is she still relevant again, besides banging and glomming onto famous guys?

  2. denise says:

    Nice to see she is giving her puss a much needed break.

  3. Jake says:

    She’s dumber than her mother, and one of the ugliest and least talented actresses working today.

  4. Atticus says:

    I think she’s gorgeous and she was absolutely brilliant in Almost Famous. I think that was the last movie of hers that I watched, though, to be fair.

    And Goldie is awesome.

  5. Q says:

    Where are we at on the boob job question? I had thought no boob job, she just gained back a bunch of weight (and looked better for it). But now I’m not so sure.

  6. Eileen Yover says:

    Almost Famous is my ultimate favorite movie! Anytime I’m in a cuddle up and watch a movie mood its Almost Famous or Bookdock Saints. And she was adorable in that movie.

  7. Jessica says:

    Ah, just like Ted Bundy and the freak from Silence of the Lambs !!

  8. Maritza says:

    Well she is still making movies so I guess that does make her relevant, her dating so much is no different than so many other actors and actresses in Hollywood. I’d say it comes with the territory, she’s cool in my book.

  9. missmilly says:

    @denise—ROFL! Oh thanks…I needed a good laugh now that I am getting the afternoon zzzzzzzzzzzz’s at work!!!

  10. canadianchick says:

    Her son sounds sweet-you can imagine he wil have creative excuses for breaking rules when he is a teen. She was great in Almost Famous.

    @denise-hilarious. Yep time for her kitty to take a nap.

  11. Cindy B says:

    I think she’s fun, a free spirit and beautiful! Listen, I went through quite a phase where I dated and slept with men and got too-serious too-fast. Does that mean I’m stupid or untalented or demented? No! It just means that I made some mistakes, don’t *all* of us? Thank goodness my mistakes weren’t photographed and printed in every magazine out there! Rock on, Kate! Rock on!

  12. cedar falls says:

    “Does that mean I’m stupid or untalented or demented?”

    No, but then you probably didn’t make Fools Gold, Bride Wars, My Best Friend’s Girl or You, Me & Dupree. Any more bombs and she’ll have nuclear capability.

  13. lucy2 says:

    Yeah, if all you’ve seen her in is Almost Famous, consider yourself lucky – everything she’s done since has been pretty awful, IMO.

    I know she’s all bubbly or whatever, but I just find her unlikable and annoying. Maybe someday I’ll change my mind, but not now!

  14. Scarlet Vixen says:

    @Cindy B: And did you have a young son at home when you went thru you’re swingin’ crazy faze? You’re right–alot of us do fun, crazy, harmless stuff when we’re young. But she’s not so young anymore, and has a young kid. If she loves him so much maybe she should spend more time with him that finding and shagging the next flavor of the month. But that’s just my opinion.

    And does anyone else think that letting your kid wear a splint for faux sympathy and letting him lie to everyone all the time isn’t cute??

  15. Jen says:

    Yep, raising a little liar sure is cute.

  16. Cath says:

    Wow, does anybody else not find the story of her kid wearing a splint for attention a little disturbing? Somehow her kid thinks that being hurt = a positive thing? Also, she thinks its cute when he lies and plays strangers for sympathy for his fake injury? Um…ok.

  17. GatsbyGal says:

    I don’t think that’s good behavior to endorse in a child. Lying to people for attention is a slippery slope, and if he’s already faking injuries, what’s next? I mean, what if Kate Hudson makes her son angry one day, like she won’t buy him a toy and he’s resenting it, so the next time someone asks him what happened to his arm, he says his mom did it? Or what happens when he gets older? Will he lie to women in bars in order to dupe them into sleeping with him? “Oh, I have terminal cancer and I’ve never had sex.” “My mom just died last week, I’m still feeling so vulnerable.”

  18. RobN says:

    I thought I was going to be the only person who found the kid’s “stories” to be less than charming. When I was a kid, they actually called that lying and my parents were really kind of against it. Why the kid is so desperate for attention is a completely different question.

  19. Feebee says:

    So her kid likes attention? Apple didn’t fall far from the tree then.

  20. Tia C says:

    I don’t understand why all the “church ladies” pop up every time there’s a post about Kate H. She’s cool as hell. Is she Meryl Streep? No, but she’s a talented and appealing entertainer, and she just seems fun. I’ve enjoyed most of her movies, all except “Bride Wars” – that was just plain inexcusable. But I digress. She’s young, sexy, has a son, and she dates. Wow, what a crime – she’s living and enjoying her life. I’m with the “Rock on, Kate!” folks.

  21. javagirl1 says:

    I wouldn’t encourage my kid to lie like that….it does seem to be going down a slippery slope…

  22. Harper says:

    She was so good in Almost Famous. I swear she keeps getting roles because we all believe she can be that good again.
    Her son is just playing around. Calm down. My younger brother used to go around covered in band aids for attention when he was that age. He grew up to be normal with an awesome sense of humor.

  23. Betwood says:

    Does anyone else notice how her stomach is still hidden? And if you look closely at around 2:38 when she leans in to greet Dave, you can see she appears to have a bump?!?

  24. paranel says:

    She is talented enough and pleasant. Which is more than I can say for most actresses her age.
