Hudson Obsessed With World Cup Soccer
KATE HUDSON became so obsessed with soccer during the World Cup, she challenged her YOU, ME AND DUPREE co-star OWEN WILSON to a match. The actress regularly played soccer during her childhood and took up the game again after feeling inspired by the championship competition. She explains, " I've been obsessed with the World Cup and I was rooting for (winners) Italy almost all the way. I have a lot of Italian in me. "When the USA left kind of early on - you've got to kind of like jump on somebody else's bandwagon. It's been a blast. I loved watching." The HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS star decided to challenge her co-star Wilson to a game and was stunned when he blatantly cheated. She jokes, "Owen actually likes to have soccer matches at his house. Owen's a great guy, I loved working with him, but he's a cheater. "His brother ANDREW was on my team, we were totally winning, we scored a goal and all of a sudden Owen's like 'hand ball, hand, ball.' "We're arguing for 20 minutes and of course we do it over and he scores a goal and wins the game. "So the world needs to know that he is a cheater and he is a bad loser and I think totally differently of him now!"
