After starring in a number of feel-good romantic comedies and making tabloid headlines with a string of high-profile boyfriends, single mom Kate Hudson is changing her image onscreen while navigating the dating waters as best she can.
In an interview with Parade, the star of My Best Friend’s Girl opens up about the potty-talking and steamy love scenes with Dane Cook in the new film.
"I actually talk like that. It’s like the first time I actually felt, ‘Oh, I can say the sort of inappropriate things that I say sometimes in real life when I’m talking about people in and out of relationships and stuff.’ It was fun to swear in a movie which I’ve never really done before."
However she, adds, because she has young son, Ryder (father is ex-husband Chris Robinson), Kate trys to keep her language a bit cleaner.
"Now that I have a son, I don’t do it as often on a day-to-day basis," she tells Parade. "But boy, yeah, I can throw out some bad words every once in a while."
After her marriage ended in 2006, Kate has had romances with famous names like Owen Wilson and Lance Armstrong, but is currently single.
"I guess I’ve been in the dating game for like two-and-a-half years now," she says. "But I’ve only dated like three guys. It’s like you meet people, and you enjoy people, and they either work or they don’t. Then one day, you find the person that actually really works."
Although she had a tough transition after her divorce, Kate says that she’s learned to embrace her life as it is.
"Now I love living alone. But the transition to getting there had its ups and downs like loving it and then not liking it. But once you settle into it, it’s really nice."
