Kate Hudson Just Confirmed This Theory on Her Hair in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"

It's been more than 19 years since "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" released, but even after watching the movie about 100 times, we apparently missed a major detail about Andie Anderson's hair. In a now-viral TikTok, user Raven Stone proposed a theory about the deeper meaning behind Andie's hairstyle — when she wears it straight and when she wears it curly — and Kate Hudson gave it a thumbs up.

"OK, so I was watching this on a plane, and I couldn't help but notice that Andie's hair is straight for most of the movie. Straight, every single time we see her researching her article, messing with Ben, she's Andie Anderson, 'How To' girl," Stone says in the video. "But we know that Andie Anderson doesn't want to be Andie Anderson, 'How To' girl. She wants to write about stuff that matters, like politics and current affairs."

He continues, "Sure enough, every single time her hair is curly, she is vulnerable, her walls are down, she is real. She's not Andie Anderson, 'How To' girl. She is Andie Anderson, writer." The theory makes so much sense, we can't believe we didn't piece this together years ago. The real kicker? Stone says, "And after the DeLauer's diamond party scene where everything comes out, her hair is curly for the rest of the movie because the jig is up. No more pretending!"

The theory is so spot on and undeniable that Hudson herself had to make a duet with the TikTok on her account. She's nodding along throughout Stone's hypothesis, and at the end when he says, "And Kate, if you see this, am I right? Am I close?," she gives it her stamp of approval with a thumbs up.

It's pretty genius if you think about it. All the scenes when Andie is putting on an act for Ben — when she's surprising him with the love fern, taking him to couple's therapy after seven days, and making him wear matching Burberry outfits — her hair is blown straight. And all the scenes where she's genuinely herself — most notably, when she's leaving New York City and Ben catches up to her on the bridge — her hair is curly. Watch Stone's original theory here, and see why our minds are blown.
