After a couple falls in love in movies, we fall in love with them. Take Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, who fell in love with big hair and neon clothes in 1998′s The Wedding Singer, again in 2004′s 50 First Dates, and this in Blended. What we love about these two goofballs is that they’re best buds in real life, with a chemistry that translates on screen. They’re both married with families now, but if they dated back in the day, we would’ve been beyond happy.
Ahead of the release of Kate Hudson’s new film, Wish I Was Here, we wanted to put her fans to the test to find out just how well they know the starlet’s films. The actress has starred in a number of rom-coms that have Hudson being chased by hot leading men and looking for love in all the wrong places — or right, depending on the outcome. While entertaining, they can be formulaic at times, with lines that sound like a Katy Hudson — err Perry — lyric. In the past, we’ve broken down the singer’s cliches and we realized that they were pretty similar to something Hudson would say on screen.
With that in mind, it’s time to figure out who said it: Kate Hudson or Katy Hudson? In the quiz, we pulled out lyrics from some of Perry’s biggest hits and put them up against Hudson’s most quotable lines. Can you determine just exactly who said it?
Movie couple chemistry is everything. A film could have an abominable script, be shot terribly, and have the dumbest trailer ever, but if we believe that the onscreen duo actually wants to rip each other’s clothes off, it’s a hit. Sadly, no amounting of perfect casting can predict whether or not a pairing will work. Who’s sexier than Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta Jones? And yet, in Oceans Twelve, they behaved like they were just meeting after a few awkward texts on Tinder. And what about Natalie Portman and Hayden Christiansen in the Star Wars series? Their relationship was supposed to be so epic that it begat Luke and Leia — but the duo was so sexless that you almost believed their kids came into the world via immaculate conception. And we won’t even get into the wasted beauty that was Beyonce and Idris Elba in Obsessed…
Here, the ten terrible movie couples we love to hate.

Zach Braff and Kate Hudson play husband and wife in Wish I was Here quite believably. And, OK, we know they’re just friends, but when we caught up with them at the film’s Sundance premiere, we could swear there was some serious real life chemistry going on! Between their doe-eyed gazes and the way they’d chime in to finish each other’s thoughts, our inner matchmaker’s imagination was fired up. Should Matt Bellamy and Taylor Bagley (Zach’s model gf) be worried?
Mad Men may be months away, but Joan and Roger are together again in God’s Pocket (starring Christina Hendricks and directed by John Slattery), which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The list of breakout stars from the 2014 Park City fest is already lengthy–and as always, there is the far-from-shabby Robert Redford to gush about. In addition to acclaimed performances from newcomer Miles Teller in Whiplash, Hollywood royalty like Kate Hudson and Maggie Gyllenhaal have jumped into their ski boots, with impressive indie performances in tow.
When it comes to sex symbols, the big, busty stars get all the love. But what about their small-breasted sisthren? You don’t have to look like ScarJo or Kimmie K. to be scorching hot! Proportionally small celebs like Kate Hudson (the queen of all A-cups) and Kiera Knightley are just as wildly lusted-after. Plus, they’re fiercely proud of their bods, and have no problem proudly baring them for films and photo shoots. As Nicole Richie once said, “I used to want a bigger chest, but now I like being flat. Clothes fit better, and I don’t really need to wear a bra.” What’s hotter than confidence?
The truth is, no matter what you’re working with — whether it be luscious curves, or a waify frame — all boobs are sexy. But today, let’s salute our favorite flat-chested hotties! All hail the itty bitty t*tty committee.

Is Lady Gaga losing it? Well one things for sure, she’s lost her manager, Troy Carter, who has split with her due to “creative differences.” The news comes ahead of the release of ARTPOP, which recently leaked to the Internet, and amidst a bizarre international promotional tour.
Hollywood obvs attracts some of the most beautiful women in the world — and pretty women tend to have pretty daughters, right? In honor of Mother’s Day (and in the spirit of slightly dysfunctional competition), we compare fifteen celeb mamas with their gorgeous mini-mes — at the same age! Hit the comments section to tell us who’s hottest.
Out of all the dramatic and not so-dramatic gown at the Golden Globes, last night, two stood out for being the most forward-thinking and outré. You may not agree with them, you may even be on the fence with them, but you have to admit that both Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman‘s gowns stand out from the crowd. And it’s a pretty hard crowd to stand out from, considering every A-lister is doing their level best to outshine the other. What makes these two gowns extraordinary is the key usage of embellishment, elevating, what would be regular black gowns to show-stoppers. Before we start, it’s also important to note that both ladies were extremely smart in leaving their hair and makeup neutral — and OMG, did their skins glow — so that their outfits took center-stage.
Kate’s black gown was a dramatic Alexander McQueen. It featured long sleeves and a little train, but the flash of skin, which was so sexy, was provided through a deep key-hole. And all that may be gravy, but the aspect we’re tripping over the most is the gold-leaf embellishment on the collar and the waist. The whole outfit has quite the impact, and is complemented by her little gold Roger Vivier ‘Boite de Nuit’ clutch, which was totally in keeping with the whole outfit. Giving her a run for her money, though, was Nicole’s gown, also by Alexander McQueen. How’s that for a synchronistic moment? The lovely actress’ gown featured some eye-catching bronze studs over the bodice, elevating her in the embellishment stakes. We usually demur from the semi-sheer trend but find the mesh detailing on her waist gorgeous. She iced up the look with Fred Leighton jewelry that was minimal enough not to interfere with her look. We’re sold on both. But who gets best embellishment, then? Which of the two McQueens will you pick? Vote, vote, vote!

Which supermodel and which Kate, you ask? A little background first. The occasion was the 3rd Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles, and from what we’ve seen from the best-dressed lists at amfAR’s galas in Cannes, you really got to bring on the serious gownage. And while many ladies aspired to be the best, only three prevailed. So we’ll start with the Kate first — Kate Hudson. She was sexy, glamorous and totally bodacious in a fire-engine red Prabal Gurung Resort 2013 gown which featured cut-outs on the shoulders and a plunging neckline. It fit her like a glove and we loved the hair and makeup choices. The swept-back, wavy ponytail was the right choice, as was the nude, glossy makeup. The supermodel on this list is Alessandra Ambrosio. Before you yell “no fair” because she’s a supermodel, let us remind you that being a supermodel and having great style are not synonymous at all. We’ve seen some of the world’s most sought-after models make terrible sartotial choices. We’re looking at you, Erin Wasson. Alessandra picked a stunning black lace Zuhair Murad Spring 2012 gown and did a subtle smoky eye and simple hair with it, making it a no-brainer for this best-dressed list. Completing this triad was amfAR’s special guest for the night, Sarah Jessica Parker. She chose to keep it sleek and simple in a black jumspuit with flared trousers, paired with wavy hair and an architectural silver pendant. Trust her to shake things up and convert us to jumpsuit enthusiasts, which we normally are not.
