Kate Hudson has no regrets over posing nude for a past photoshoot because she “likes being naked”.
In an interview to celebrate the 25th anniversary of U.S. InStyle magazine, the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress reflected on her eight covers for the publication.
Kate focused on the time she stripped off for her controversial 2001 cover and discussed how the criticism didn’t affect her, even when the magazine was banned from some stores.
“Whatever, we sold a whole bunch of them,” she quipped. “To be honest, it doesn’t take a lot for me to take my clothes off. People can say whatever they want, but I like being naked. Always have!
“I was newly married (to her now ex-husband Chris Robinson), and my whole career had just shot up after (2000 film) Almost Famous came out. I posed naked for the cover, and I was strategically draped with what was basically chain mail. The stylist had a very hard job!”
Kate went on to note that photoshoots in the early 2000s were much more relaxed.
“That time in my life was so much fun. There were no cell phones or social media or ‘content’. It was way more intimate and special,” the 40-year-old mused.
She also spoke about her 2003 cover, in which she was expecting her first child, son Ryder, and recalled how she refused to give up stilettos and told editors that she hoped to be “fashionably pregnant”.
Since then, she’s welcomed son Bingham, eight, with ex-fiance Matt Bellamy, and 10-month-old daughter Rani Rose, with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.
“I was 24 and back then I really didn’t give up my high heels. But 15 years later, during this last pregnancy, I sure did,” she laughed.
