Fool's Gold Star Kate Hudson Criticises Magazine Airbrushing

by | 11 April 2008

Kate Hudson has admitted her exasperation at the magazine industry's policy of airbrushing pictures of celebrities.

Arriving at the European premiere of her new film Fool's Gold, the actress explained that image modification is now part and parcel of celebrity life.

Clad in a John Galliano dress and sparkling Bulgari jewellery, Hudson told reporters: "I just tend to let those things go. I can't tell you how many covers of magazines I've been on when my eyes were blue.

"I don't have blue eyes. I have green eyes. So, you just kind of go with it, you know, it's like it is what it is and that's what people do, you know."

Though the Almost Famous star dodged questions about her involvement with Owen Wilson - whose recent suicide bid was linked to his split with Hudson - she was happy to talk about her working relationship with co-star Matthew McConaughey.

Adventure comedy Fool's Gold sees the pair reunited after 2003's How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Hudson admitted their onscreen chemistry is inspired by their real-life bickering.

"He can't stand it when I'm late," she explained. "It drives him crazy when I'm late. And every time I come to an appointment he just looks at me and he tells me I'm tardy.

"Every time I'm, like, ten minutes late, he pulls this little face."

But Hudson's lack of punctuality won't prevent McConaughey from making a third film with her, the Texan actor said at the premiere at London's Vue West End cinema.

"We are super close and we just, for some reason, really connected from the first movie we did," he revealed.

"It continues and, like any good relationship you have with your friends, it can drive you a little crazy... We drive each other crazy, but in a good way - in a sort of loving way."
