Thursday, 05 May 2011 04:08 PM


LOS ANGELES 5 (Reuters) - Kate Hudson stars in the romantic comedy "Something Borrowed," due out in U.S. movie theaters on Friday.

Based on author Emily Giffin's best-selling novel of the same name, the film is about two best friends (Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin) whose friendship is tested when one falls for the others' fiance.kate hudson pregnant

In real-life, Hudson is expecting a child with musician Matthew Bellamy. (She already has a son, Ryder, 7, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.) The actress, 32, talked with Reuters about the film and her pregnancy.

Q: You've done quite a few romantic comedies including "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and "Fool's Gold." How did this one come about?

A: "(Producers) Hilary Swank and Molly Smith acquired the book series (which also includes sequels "Something Blue" and "Baby Proof") and they came over and said, 'Please read them.' I was in mommy mode and the idea of working was not in my immediate future at that time (laughs). But then I started reading the books and the character of Darcy lent itself to such good comedy."

Q: What did you like about her?

A: "She's a little wild. She likes to have a good time. She's the person who gets drunk and stupid and doesn't realize -- or care -- how obnoxious she is. In the second book, Darcy has such a great turnaround and A-ha moment. I hope we get a chance to do the second one."

Q: Are you a fan of chick lit books?

A: "I'm the girl who reads 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.' I like heavy reading. But when I started reading these books, by page 20 I was just lost. They are so much fun to read and Emily Giffin writes relatable characters, especially in that thirtysomething age group."

Q: On a personal note, you're in the third trimester of your pregnancy. How is it the second time around?

A: "I love being pregnant. I just love it. Especially when you start to really feel and connect with the baby when it starts moving. I don't know what I'm having. It feels like a girl, but I don't know. I had a really good sense of who Ryder was in my belly the first time around. I'd call him my Peaceful Poet and that's who he is in real life. He's got it all figured out and he's pretty mellow."

Q: And this one?

A: "This one is so wild and and so active and so ready to be on this planet. I'm like, 'Watch out! Whatever's about to come out is going to be front and center!' (laughs)"

Q: How do you balance raising a son with your ex while beginning a new family with your fiancee?

A: "You have to figure out how to make it work even if you're not going to be together. Chris and I have done a really good job at that and we have a really happy son...Chris and I have the same values of what we want in our lives. That's why we fell in love. And we've continued to hold those values true throughout our divorce and in raising Ryder together."

Q: Now that you're about to give birth, how ambitious are you about working?

A: "(Laughs) I've never really been an ambitious actress, which is funny because I've been very lucky to have success in it. But it's never been my driving force. I've always been a family girl."

Q: So it's safe to assume you'll be taking some time off?

A: "With this baby, and Ryder being in such a great stage with all of his sports, it's going to take a lot to get me out of the house. Granted, I love to work and I'll always be a working woman, but it will take a lot more now."

Q: Like what?

A: "For instance, I've never thought too hard about my film choices. I've always been like, 'This will be fun, I love these people, hopefully it'll be great.' Now I think it will be about the actual filmmaker. And eventually I'll probably direct.
