Kate Hudson: I’m Not Pregnant, Not Needy

Kate Hudson graces the January 2010 cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The 30-year-old Academy Award-nominated actress is set to star in the musical Nine alongside Hollywood heavyweights Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz. The mother of one opens up about pregnancy rumors, her sweet 5 1/2-year-old son Ryder and her much-documented romantic relationships.

On pregnancy, engagement and break up rumors: “I’m not pregnant. I can’t go two months without being pregnant, engaged, or breaking up because I’m too needy, which is always the one they love. I’m not needy. You kind of have to laugh it off, but it can kind of screw up other things around it.”

On being a strict mom: “I’m a pretty strict mom, which is funny. I didn’t think I’d be so strict. I feel like he is so great, he’s such a good kid, people really connect with him, they want to give him things and do things for him, and I’m like, no. The next thing you know, you have the kid who’s being cute in order to get something.”

On being proud of son Ryder: “When he first started talking, he said, ‘Mommy, let’s get on parachutes and eat the candy-cane sky.’ I was like, ‘Okay, Sergeant Pepper!'”

On single motherhood: “[It] can be okay. I feel like I’ve learned so much. The routine [of marriage] can kill me. That becomes a difficult balance, too, because I feel like my son needs his routine, but for me I need to step out of my routine. I haven’t figured it all out yet.”

On her ex-husband Chris Robinson: “Chris is a great dad. I feel really lucky. When we first met, it was so immediate. I had no question in my mind I was supposed to marry him and have children with him.” Regarding the divorce, Kate adds, “It just wasn’t working. It was that simple. I loved him like crazy.”

On why she remains mum on her relationships: “I have a child, and there are people involved, and it’s unfair to talk about somebody else, especially when you’re not in that place yet to be discussing those things. If I was sitting here with a belly out to here, I’d be talking about what the relationship is and how important that is in my life right now.”

On not feeling pressure from family or friends to avoid her current beau, Alex Rodriguez: ”I don’t really have friends like that. My mother never shook anybody’s hand. She has kissed and hugged her way through life. [My family had] an open-door policy. We were never afraid to bring the wrong person home. They were always open to our failures.”

On giving people a chance to prove themselves to her: “I’d rather hang out with the person who’s done everything than who’s done nothing. It would suck to die and not have experienced my life, really. I mean, I think you should keep your eyes open. Blinders are fun for a second, but they have to come off eventually. And I believe it’s important to get to know people, to really get to know them.”

On the photo of her and A-Rod kissing: “There’s a guy that’s shooting probably 60 frames a minute. That was a sideswipe on the cheek. That wasn’t even a kiss. I quickly kissed the cheek. And I remember one of the headlines the next day said, MAKEOUT SESSION. What is wrong with people?”

On having close girlfriends: “I don’t know what I’d do without my girlfriends. Let’s be honest, I don’t care how much you’re in love with any man, you need to have your girlfriends to talk to. Without them, we’re alone. I don’t want to talk to a man about some of the things I feel.”
