Kate Hudson is profiled the pages of InStyle’s May issue which hits stands April 15, and I gotta say, she sounds pretty insufferable. Like, to a Gwyneth Paltrow-esque level. She’s not like Drew Barrymore who’s like “I know I’m like this but I at least say I don’t like fame,” no, Kate is all about her celebrity pals and celebrity cliques, which makes sense given her stints to get attention.
Kate also opens up about a number of issues surrounding motherhood, and stuff that only super rich people care blather on about, like manners and gratitude she also says she’d rather “watch the Bachelor than do math,” which I’m sure is true. And it’s like, fine, you’re SO BRAVE, but you KNOW everyone just wants to see the photo inserts of your abs, so let’s get real about your actual cultural significance, Kate. Here are the highlights:
On her squad of Besties (consisting of Sara Foster, Jennifer Meyer and Nicole Richie):“I kind of like that we’re intimidating,” she says, “You know when you see a group of girls walk in that are having more fun than anyone?” Good to know all her Instagram snaps are exactly as exciting as they look. Speaking of which, Hudson says, “Someone asked me, ‘Who does your insta? It’s great!’ And I was like, ‘Are you out of your mind? I wouldn’t want anyone to touch my social media!’”
On Motherhood: “I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder. So, our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we’re close, and I am his mom. I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude. But I’m a bit of a wild mom.” She continues, “Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children.”
On helping her kids with their homework: “Yes, I help my kids with their homework. But I also get bored doing it. I will sit and listen to my children pontificate and discuss their ideas till the day is long because it warms my heart, but I really don’t want to do math! I’m gonna say it: I’d prefer to watch ‘The Bachelor’ rather than do fractions and divisions.”
