Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson Talk Baby Plans and Body Image in Marie Claire
Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson showed off their close bond on the cover of Marie Claire's June issue. The actors play frenemies in Something Borrowed, but they formed a great relationship behind the scenes. Kate, who is expecting her second child this Summer, opened up to the magazine about how pregnancy feels different this time around. Kate Hudson is currently in London with her husband-to-be, Matthew Bellamy, and her son, Ryder, and her dad Kurt Russell recently gave the Muse frontman his stamp of approval, saying he's a "wonderful guy." Ginnifer also has a wedding in her near future and shared her excitement about starting a family with her fiancé, Joey Kern. The costars further discussed Hollywood's beauty standards and staying in shape, with Kate chatting candidly about her struggle to shed her baby weight after Ryder's birth. Here are some highlights:
- Kate on how pregnancy is different this time around: "I was so sick the first trimester that every time I tried to read, I couldn't concentrate. So I started brainlessly watching TV in the fetal position on my couch. It was brutal. I only just started getting a bigger appetite. I'm eating, but I like healthy foods in this one."
- Ginnifer on her wedding plans: "I'm so ready. I want a life full of little Joeys. I'm only holding off until after my wedding for vanity purposes. I just want to be able to fit into whatever dress I pick out."
- Kate on losing weight postbaby: "Let me tell you something. It's an emotional roller coaster, having to lose weight. I gained so much — I was 185 pounds at the end. You actually experience how much energy is stored in that and how much emotion you actually hold in that mass. It is emotional, no matter how determined you are. It takes work to bounce back so quickly."
- Ginnifer on her natural figure: "I am genetically predisposed to be a bigger girl than I am. If I didn't live in Hollywood, I would be. I have very real hips and a real Southern woman's ass."
- Ginnifer on why she still uses Weight Watchers: "I've never had body issues, and I've never had an eating disorder. Most of the people I know are on the program for health reasons. And yes, some of them are slim women who want to stay slim."
