Kate Hudson, the beautiful, successful, amazingly nice, sweet, this generation’s Meg Ryan of romantic comedy etc. etc. is dating… Dax Shepard, Ashton Kutcher’s sidekick from Punk’d. He was also in Employee of the Month with Jessica Simpson. Recent photos of the two together have left a lot of people asking, "Why?"
Well, I think I can help with this one. During a trip to a Sandals resort in Jamaica to celebrate I forget exactly what, I was paired with Dax for a day of golf. Well, he golfed as I sat next to him in the golf cart sipping a beer and asking him questions. Not that he was very good at golf. He was actually a hazard to the course and admitted to hating the sport, avoiding it except for an annual family outing. But he is smart, witty and, despite being on vacation, he holed himself up in his room to work on a script. This guy could be going places.
We hung out again with mutual friends when we were in Detroit for the Detroit GMC car show. It was a long, late night. He was bragging about being well endowed. Being a group of girls, we laughed. He offered to prove it to us. We dared him. He did — a quick flash — he wasn’t ashamed. And rightly so: He wasn’t lying.
