Kate Hudson Has Some Ideas for a How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days Sequel
And yes, she mentions the fern.
Back in July, Kate Hudson gave her Instagram followers a major dose of nostalgia when she posted a clip from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days to celebrate Take Your Plant for a Walk Day (yes, it's real) — and fans collectively lost it when her co-star, Matthew McConaughey, offered up a comment. The two shared frond memories of their co-star the love fern and in a new interview with Elle, Hudson says that she has some ideas for the OG love fern ("I mean, I hope so!" she said when asked if it would still be alive.) and where her character from the movie would be today. And, while she's pretty busy with things like athleisure and her own brand of vodka, she's not ruling out a sequel.
"I've always thought about what Matthew and I's characters would be now, if we were still together. It's actually probably a good amount of time [that has passed] to make a movie about it," Hudson said. "We probably would have gotten married with kids. We're probably miserable right now!"
She added that the film was focused on her character's ambition, so if she was to continue the story, she says that it'd be important to keep that going. Her idea? To have Anderson in charge of something other than a 10-day-long relationship.
"But I think Andie Anderson is ambitious, and she was wanting to go places, and she was sort of stuck in this job," she noted. "I loved what we created with that movie. And she found love that would support her ambitions. Andie would probably be running something at this point."
She added that the production of the film was a great experience, too, and that because of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Fool's Gold, she and McConaughey got to spend months and months together. It just doesn't happen anymore, she says, and she was glad to have the chance to make movies the old-fashioned way.
"It was a very different time of making movies. People like me and Matthew, I feel like we were the last class of actors that really experienced the old school Hollywood process of making movies. It was a special time," she said.
