Kate Hudson ‘kind of liked’ the rumor that she was dating Brad Pitt

God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards 2017

The charming Kate Hudson, who is almost making me love that buzz cut (not for me…never…but it’s growing on me when Kate rocks it) is making the promotional rounds for her new cooking/entertaining/doing things none of us mere mortals have any sort of time to do book Pretty Fun.

While making the late night rounds, the 38-year-old actress appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday night. Host Andy Cohen asked her about rumors surrounding her being romantically linked with Brad Pitt earlier this year after his split with Angelina Jolie. Kate, who has been with rocker Danny Fujikawa since last December, recalled, “That was the craziest rumor of all time,” adding “There’s nothing true to that. As a matter of fact. I hadn’t actually seen him in, like, four years. It was kind of an awesome rumor. I kind of liked it. I was like, ‘OK, fine. We’re having twins!’”

Kate’s not the only one who got laugh from the rumors. Her brother Oliver, who will always and forever be Jeff Fordham from Nashville to me (#sorrynotsorry #ripjeff), posted an image at the time of one of the tabloid covers reporting on the faux couple to Instagram, adding an obscenity-laden, hilarious snarky caption that read, in part, “He drinks out of the f— carton and he leaves the door open when he’s taking a dump!! And this is when he’s at MY house!!! He’s already calling me brother and has driven a wedge between myself and my real brother Wyatt who now won’t speak to me.” Marry me, Oliver – and not only because I want Kurt, Goldie and Kate as my in-laws.

Perhaps due to drag queen bartenders Trixie Mattel and Katya and their on-set cocktails, Kate was in a chatty, sharing mood, as was fellow WWHL guest Colin Hanks. While taking questions from callers, one fan asked if she’s spoken to Cher since THE QUEEN ranted on Twitter about Kate’s Fabletics activewear line. Kate responded by giggling and simply answered “That’s hilarious…NO.”

Kate also gushed about Sia, who directed her in Sia’s debut film, Sister (fun fact: Sia does take off her wig when she directs). On the movie that put her on Hollywood’s radar, Cameron Crowe’s 2000 film Almost Famous, Kate noted that “It holds up.” She went on to say that “I just watched it with Ryder not too long ago. It was really cool to watch that because I hadn’t seen that in so long and it’s still cool. Ryder, he’s 13, so to him it was like, he loved every second of that movie. It’s cool to be a part of a movie like that.”

As for the possibility of Almost Famous 2, don’t hold your breath. Says Kate, “I would say a sequel to — I got a couple. Almost Famous would be fun, but I wouldn’t wanna touch that. But maybe How to Lose a Guy. That would be fun.” Would it, really? The original really seemed like a one and done to me. Let’s leave it at that.

And how’s this for a little bit of dish? When asked by a caller to the show how her friend and fellow actress Liv Tyler ranked in on-screen kisses (they shared a smooch in 2000’s Dr. T and the Women), Kate admitted, “she’s my best friend so, I’d have to say way up there. Top three?” Recalling making the film, she said, “It’s so funny ’cause Liv and I talk about this all the time. We’re like, ‘We should’ve gone for it more.’ It was so sweet, you know? It was such a sweet kiss. We should’ve just really made out. I don’t know why we didn’t.” Aww. I’m glad Andy liquors up his guests because this was a fun interview. Not fun enough for me to get cable again or anything, but fun nonetheless.

    It was always false

  2. yanni says:

    I didn’t know she and Liv Tyler were close! That makes me happy for some reason.

  3. Mermaid says:

    I went to college and was in the same dorm with Oliver Hudson. He was cute back then too.

    • Lorelai says:

      I saw him and his then-girlfriend coming out of the Arclight theater once and he was SO handsome. Mesmerizingly so 🤩

  4. Maya says:

    Kate always seem fame hungry but for some reason I like her.

    She is sweet, never attacks women and just does what she seems right.

  5. Louise177 says:

    I don’t know why the rumor took off. In two months the tabloids had them living together and Kate pregnant.

  6. Lizzie says:

    To me, Oliver Hudson will always be Eddie Doling from Dawson’s Creek

  7. Des says:

    Wow, Andy is off his usual stuff huh? You can see he’s way less lubricated and kinda… surly?

  8. minx says:

    I’m sure she did.

  9. Nancy says:

    Kate and Liv were “Almost Famous” because of their parents. I like Liv so much better, she has a naivety about her and I think she’s very attractive. Now Kate…In my mind when she read she hooked up with Brad, she was as giddy as when someone asked her if her mother was Goldie Hawn! But to be fair, I guess if your mother/father or both are famous, why not let that open the door for you.

  10. Janet R says:

    She is so much more stunning with cropped hair!

  11. truth hurts says:

    You people can miss me with the “don’t know how that rumor got started,” Brad’s PR team was hooking him up with everyone from JA to KHudson to EM. It was a ploy to keep him attached to any famous woman of age for his image as desirable man.
    He is no longer desirable to the young guns. He is 54 soon. He looks 54. He looks old and tired and I don’t know what the heck is wrong with him. Maybe it’s him not smoking or drinking anymore, if he is still sober. He looks sad and worried a lot. Even in the pics where the media is trying to build him in. He may have a few where he is smiling or laughing momentarily but not many. I think divorce has taken a toll on him, Really.
    Oh an Kate is sweet but she is just like the rest of the ageing ladies, any attention is good attention.

    • LadyT says:

      Don’t forget Sienna Miller. Kidding. I don’t think for a minute this was Brad’s team. I think Brad’s been extremely quiet actually. Just magazines making up stories and trying to sell copies.

  12. Lucy says:

    I love Kate and Brad.It would be perfect

  13. Ashley says:

    RIP Jeff Fordham!

  14. Lorelai says:

    Who wouldn’t love it?

  15. Maya says:

    Exactly – don’t think Brad is dating anyone at all and seems to focus on getting his personal life back on track.

    The divorce seems to be the push he needed to get rid of his alcohol addiction. Something bad happened on that plane but it seems that with extensive therapy between Brad, Angelina and the children seems to go well.
