If you call yourself a true fan of American English movies, then you can’t miss out on the iconic romantic comedy “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days“! It stars the amazing duo of Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, and it’s a total classic.
In the film, Kate Hudson plays Andie Anderson, a magazine columnist who decides to write an article about how to make a guy dump you in just 10 days. She chooses Matthew McConaughey’s character, Ben Barry, as her unwitting subject. Ben, on the other hand, makes a bet with his coworkers that he can make any woman fall in love with him within the same timeframe.
This hilarious movie, released in February 2003, was an instant hit. It also features talented actors like Annie Parisse, Thomas Lennon, and Bebe Neuwirth. It grossed over $177 million at the box office, proving its popularity.
Kate Hudson, daughter of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, reminisced about the experience of making “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and how it was different from the current movie-making process. She mentioned that she and Matthew were fortunate to be part of the last generation of actors who experienced the traditional Hollywood way of making films. Their time together on this movie and another one called “Fool’s Gold” spanned several months, creating a special bond. According to Kate, such extended shoots are rare these days, except for big-budget movies like those in the Marvel universe.
Kate also shared her thoughts on a potential sequel to the movie. She pondered what their characters, Andie and Ben, would be like now if they were still together. It’s been a while since the original film, so she imagines they might be married with children, but possibly facing some challenges. Andie, being ambitious, would likely have made significant strides in her career.
Even though a sequel is still up in the air, Kate Hudson remains close with her co-stars. She often reunites with Kathryn Hahn, who played her best friend Michelle Rubin in the movie. They even worked together again in the 2022 film “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.” Kate expressed her admiration for Kathryn and how their friendship has stood the test of time.
