Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow discuss their worst onscreen kisses
Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow dish on their worst onscreen kissing experiences.
“Who was the best on-screen kisser?” Paltrow asked Hudson.
“Honestly, you know, I feel like I kind of haven’t had the best kissers,” Hudson replied. “I feel like I should have had better ones.”
One name came to mind, though: Matthew McConaughey.
“The thing is, every time I kiss McConaughey, it’s like, I mean, it’s like there’s just something happening and there’s, like, snot or wind,” Hudson laughed. The pair shared the screen together in rom-coms How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Fool’s Gold.
“Like when we were kissing in the end of Fool’s Gold, we’re in the ocean, we like had the plane crash — he just had snot all over his face,” Hudson recalled.
“Also you’ve worked with him so much, do you have, like, brother energy towards him?” Paltrow asked.
“I mean, yeah I think it can be a little sibling-y at times, but no…” Hudson continued.
The Goop founder interjected that she had a “brother energy” issue when it came time to kiss Robert Downey Jr. in the Iron Man and Avengers films.
“When I kissed him and I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’” Paltrow shared. “This is literally like kissing my brother.”
“Oh, you know who was a good kisser, but you didn’t see it, cause they cut it out? Was Billy [Crudup],” Hudson said of her Almost Famous co-star. “Billy was good. That was good.”
“He looked like he would be a good kisser,” Paltrow exclaimed.
“We had a kissing scene in the ice room which then wasn’t in the movie,” Hudson shared of the 2000 film.
Paltrow concluded with one final question for her pal: “Is there a famous person that you’ve had a thing with that the world does not know about?”
“Oh yeah,” Hudson quickly replied. “What do you mean? Yeah. Doesn’t everybody? If they said no, they’re lying. Come on… I mean, it’s amazing the things you do get away with.”
