Kate Hudson Says 'Nobody Can Debate' It's Still Hard for Women in Hollywood

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 10:13:52 +0000

ABC/A.M.P.A.S.(r)/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) -- Kate Hudson enjoys her privacy, but she's not afraid to talk about a number of things, including fame, ex-boyfriends and plastic surgery in the July issue of InStyle magazine.

As you know, the 35-year-old actress is the daughter of Oscar-winner Goldie Hawn, whom Hudson calls "a trailblazer," and a great example of how to live in the Hollywood "circus" while still leading a normal life.

“She had this extremely feminine public image," Kate tells the magazine, "but behind the scenes there was a real, persevering strength -- wanting to get things done, fighting for what she believed in, and being successful with it.”

In spite of her mom's efforts, Hudson insists little has changed for women in Hollywood. “Do women still have a more difficult time in the industry? In terms of what they get paid and getting movies made, that’s just a factual yes," she says, adding, "Nobody can debate it.”

Hudson has also dated her share of famous boyfriends, including cyclist Lance Armstrong and baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, both accused of using performance-enhancing drugs. She admits being "shocked" by the allegations, but thinks they have to live with the choices they made.

“People have a right to [feel betrayed]," the Almost Famous actress says, explaining, "Lance and Alex are phenomenal athletes who have made some bad choices and let a lot of people down. It’s a decision they made for themselves and they’ve got to loathe it.”

Hudson, who is rumored to have had breast augmentation surgery, has strong words for gossip bloggers who scrutinize her looks and others in Hollywood.  “Will everybody stop being so damned judgmental? If someone wants to go get butt implants, then sure, go get butt implants. The real question is, How do they treat the person next to them?"

The July issue of InStyle comes out Friday.
