MTV’s Josh Horowitz is an affable guy who is pretty skilled at putting celebrities at ease and getting them to answer personal questions. He got Angelina Jolie to talk about rolling around on the floor with Brad Pitt and had Johnny Depp admitting that he quit smoking. Kate Hudson wasn’t that receptive to Horowitz’s attempt at humor, though. He tried to show the actress a photo of her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, as a centaur and asked her if the rumors that Alex had a picture of himself as a centaur over his bed were true. Kate laughed nervously at first and then got offended and refused to answer the question. A-Rod totally has a centaur portrait or Kate would have said something simple like “no,” instead she got a little snotty about it.
A rendering of Alex Rodriguez as a centaur gave Kate Hudson a case of the giggles.
When an MTV News reporter showed the actress a mock-up of her Yankees boyfriend as half-man, half-horse, the actress blushed and laughed — but refused to confirm or deny Us Weekly’s reports that such a painting exists in Rodriguez’s bedroom.
“What is that?” she said of the mythological image “That’s horrible.”
When the reporter asked Hudson, 30, to clarify the story, she deflected. “That is the craziest thing anyone has ever asked me,” she said.
“I don’t indulge in those types of stories,” she continued quietly, “As humorous as you might think they are.”
A-Rod had a stripper scandal, too! Check out the stars-and-strippers slideshow
A former fling of Rodriguez recently insisted to Us Weekly that Rodriguez actually had two centaur paintings created with his likeness. “He was so vain . . . It was ridiculous,” the ex told Us.

Kate had a similar response last summer when the ladies on The View asked her about then-boyfriend, Lance Armstrong. At first she started laughing and then she said “I try not to talk about my personal life.”
Things are going much better for Kate in her latest romance than in her high-profile summer fling with Lance. Her boyfriend’s team just won the World Series and by most accounts he’s very serious about her. Fox 411 has a report with quotes from an insider saying that Alex is so into Kate that he “hardly looks at other women,” and even avoided talking to cheerleaders at a party. The source goes on to say that Alex “has decided to drastically avoid most contact with women that could get him in trouble.” I guess that’s worth overlooking some ridiculous centaur portraits, even if they are rather embarrassing.
