Kate Hudson in Elle UK: “Botox is great, I’m glad it’s there!”


Kate Hudson is the cover girl for the December issue of Elle Magazine UK. Kate’s promoting her role in Nine, but she’s also promoting her recent “weight loss” (yes, I was surprised too) and her relationship with Alex Rodriguez. I find the photos to be very sketchy, but maybe that’s just me. They’ve got her greased up and her body looks very, very athletic – like she’s a female bodybuilder or something. Or Madonna. I don’t care for the look or the styling, but whatever. In the interview (excerpt from the Daily Mail), Kate talks about how she is not engaged to Alex Rodriguez, but how she is totally in love with the idea of Botox. Yikes.

Kate Hudson has cast off her wholesome girl-next-door image in a new series of raunchy pictures. The stunning shots show the blonde actress oiled up in a black swimsuit with satin gloves and feline eye make-up.

Kate, whose mother is Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn, is also snapped with the same eye-catching make-up teamed with tousled hair and a sexy belted dress.

The 30-year-old, who has been dating New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez for six months, revealed she has given up alcohol in preparation for a film role in which she stars as a terminally ill woman who falls for her doctor.

The star, who lost 20lb, said: ‘I love my glass of wine. I love tequila. To be in New York for two weeks and not have one beverage, I’m not sure I’ve ever done that!’

Kate also used the interview to set the record straight and deny that she is engaged to Alex after she was reportedly spotted with a ring on her finger.

She told Elle: ‘Did you know that it was this one, on my right hand? I hear about this and I’m like “Why would I even respond? What would I say if you’re going to lie about something ridiculous?”’

‘And if you really did your job, you’d look at the pictures taken that day and realize [the ring] was on my right hand.’

The mother-of-one also revealed: ‘I love being a girl. I love clothes and I love the rituals of facials and body treatments, all the stuff girls get, make-up, scarves, hats. And we’re like a tribe. That’s just our nature. You get a group of women together and, somehow, we keep it together. I love that we can be that powerful, as a group. Men, you know, it’s survival of the fittest.’

Kate, whose film Nine is out in December, admitted she would be willing to try Botox in the future.

She said: ‘Everyone’s so obsessed with who gets Botox, but it’s great! Are you kidding? The fact that women can avoid going under the knife and get a little Botox treat and not have to worry about it? I’m glad it’s there for when it’s time.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I think Kate is saying she hasn’t had Botox, but will when her time comes. Maybe she’s trying not to be judgy because her mom uses it? Who knows? As far as the engagement stuff goes – well, I’ll admit that I do think Kate wants to be engaged, and wants to marry Alex Rodriguez. It probably wasn’t an engagement ring she was wearing, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t up for it. I was actually thinking about Kate and A-Rod over the weekend, and I came to uncomfortable conclusion that A-Rod might be the healthiest relationship Kate has been in for a while. That’s not some great leap, but it is interesting. In any case, I’ve got twenty bucks on their engagement in the next two months. Any takers?

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Kate has already indulged in several Botox sessions. Her face screams of it!

  2. Jules says:

    Gay Rod’s first wife was manish looking, Madonna is………..well who knows what she really is anymore, and not Kate Hudson is getting ripped? Hmmmmmmmmmm

  3. Kerri says:

    Interesting point Jules…hmmmm….

    Always thought Kate had a nice body but this does look a bit suspect..let’s hope its photoshop or great body painting at work.

  4. birdie says:

    I really don’t care for Kate Hudson. I feel she’s an over-rated, under-performing actress. The poor man’s version of her much more talented mother. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s already experimenting with Botox, or steroids.

  5. Pole says:

    I don’t like her. Has she ever done something remotely memorable except for that one film, I can’t remember what was called?

  6. heb says:

    When was Kate Hudson EVER the girl next door?

  7. viper says:

    If you do things just to please others, you’re doing it for all the wrong reasons. If you do it because you think youre not beautiful to start with thats also a bad reason.

  8. Firestarter says:

    @Pole- Almost Famous?? That is her best role to date, IMO. She was funny, in a “watch because it is on HBO” sort of way in How to Lose a Guy in 10 days. Everything else has kind of sucked.

  9. birdie says:

    Kaiser, you (tactfully) left out the part where she talks about bloggers

    Kate on Blogs–> “It’s like having a girl talk badly about you in high school. It’s so juvenile and base. Not liking an outfit, OK, I get that. OK, let’s all laugh at somebody’s outfit. OK, you don’t like it; you can make a funny joke about it. And if you have a good sense of humor, you can take it. It’s happened to me; I got panned at the Oscars one year. But a lot of my [Hollywood] peers are really beautiful people. Really, really nice. And everyone’s doing the best they can. It’s not a negative world; it’s quite positive. And for people to want to switch it and make it negative, because it makes them feel better, that’s really bizarre.”

    This “mean girls” crap coming from the girl who starred in Bride Wars, a movie that could only properly be described as “juvenile and base”… OK we don’t like your acting skills, OK. You are an actor, and we are an audience, OK. Last time I checked, everyone was mean in high school. It wasn’t reserved for girls. OK- Did you even go to high school?

  10. WTF?!? says:

    She looks like Brit-Brit in the muscly photos.
    She does not impress me in the slightest on any level. She’s beige.

  11. PJ says:

    To me these photos are a work of art. The stylists depict a familiar person in a completely fresh new way. Kate looks less girl-next-door and more sophisticated and sexy. It is amazing what a good photographer can do with a camera!

  12. PJ says:

    Birdie, I agree that the negative comments can get pretty harsh. Most celebs are far better looking (and infinitely better groomed!) than people you see on the street, yet they often get called “ugly” and other names. It’s too bad they have the chance to say anything they want on the Internet, but they waste the opportunity with ridiculous claims that all these beautiful people are ugly.

    We probably do tend to think of celebs as objects, not people. Kate Hudson is pointing out, and rightly so, that they are real human beings with feelings. It must be very disheartening to have a perfect body, expensive designer clothes, the best hairstylists, makeup artists, stylists, etc., and then have people call you ugly!

  13. Pole says:

    @Firestarter: Yeah, that’s the one. Other than that role I think she’s totally bland and irrelevant.

  14. Botoxinfo says:

    Scientists are warning that the anti-wrinkle treatment Botox used by millions of women every year can spread from the face to the brain

  15. Giz says:

    Ahh, the power of PhotoShop and the dodge and air-brush tools!

  16. Jeri says:

    I think she looks oily but I see very little muscle definition. Looks like she wanted to appear to muscled (sp ?) but to me she has a little definition on her arms, but no more than normal, otherwise just oily. Good job by photog to make her appear to be built.

  17. birdie says:

    PJ – here’s the thing. Nobody is telling her to read the blogs, and honestly I feel that everyone keeps it pretty civil.

    Nobody is saying she dresses badly. Everyone is saying she is untalented.

  18. DD says:

    At least she admits it. Most celebrity’s use some kind of fillers. It’s unfortunate but not a big deal, though when they go overboard it sucks, they look awful and they don’t even notice it.

  19. Someone says:

    Yay for for cosmetic procedure that is derived from a toxin bacteria make to kill someone!

    (Botox is derived from the botulism toxin maybe by Clostridium botulinum. It paralyzes your muscles so your respiratory and cardiovascular systems stop working and death occurs)

  20. Sumodo1 says:

    Here’s one for ya to chew on: let’s say she gets engaged to A-Rod and Owen Wilson throws another Butterscotch Stallion hissy and offs himself. Will she still marry A-Rod? Things that make you go hmmmm?!!

  21. Ana says:

    I really loved her in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. She was so freaking cute in that movie. One of my favorites.
    But I haven’t really liked her in anything else. And she kind of has a double chin. Not shown in these pictures.
    I thought the 20 pounds was a lie but now that I think about it she was a lot more thin in 10 days….but still 20 pouns seems like too much.

  22. Janeanne says:

    Ya know, I find the people who bitch and moan about other women using botox are usually the ones who are either too scared or too poor to use it themselves. Nobody has died from cosmetic botox use so the scaremongering is erroneous irresponsible. Further, as a medical treatment Botox has been helping paralysed children for many, many years now – it was never ‘make’ to kill anyone. Moreover, it cannot be lumped in the same category as plastic surgery. There’s no surgery involved. Its simply advanced skin care and as a sometime user myself I can attest to its effectiveness. It gets a bad rap because people like Nicole Kidman abuse it.

  23. BitterBetty says:

    Buddhists love their Botox.

  24. Ben says:

    Despite Kate doing very little in her career I always like her and have a soft spot for her because of Almost Famous which is one of my favorite films. In my eyes she kinda gets a free pass because of her involvement it that film.

  25. TwinkleToes says:

    All the photoshop and makeup in the world, she still isn’t attractive. Imagine having all of that at your disposal and that same pic of you being gorgeous, and better than her. Hollywood nepotism at work. I know I could rock that photo with bone structure alone.

  26. coucou says:

    Why, oh why the Winehouse eyeliner?

  27. MS.DIVA says:

    Who cares about Kate not me i never like her she should but on some red heels and stand by a corner.She nothing but a hooker she might as well get paid for it.She has really made a name for herself and it’s not a good one.When you have kids you got to be careful because what your kids don’t see theres always a friend of your kids will tell your kids and it will hurt them so she really need to watch what she does because it will bite you in the ASS
