Kate Hudson was thrilled when she first read the script for new movie THE SKELETON KEY, as it was a far cry from the usual romantic comedies she stars in.

The 26-year-old actress is bored of working on frothy films including HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN TEN DAYS and LE DIVORCE, and admits she would much rather watch a thriller than her own back catalogue of screen confection.

She says, "I read the script in about an hour, and as soon as I'd finished it, I thought, 'Now this is the kind of film I'd like to see.'

"I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies, believe it or not. Well, I don't run out to see them."
