While chatting with Gwyneth Paltrow for Goop, Kate Hudson dished on her best—and her worst—on-screen kisses. Though they make a perfect movie couple, Hudson says her How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and Fool's Gold co-star Matthew McConaughey wasn't the greatest scene partner when it came to locking lips.
"You know, I feel like I kind of haven't had the best kissers. I feel like I should have had better ones," Hudson began. "The thing is, every time I kiss McConaughey, it's like, I mean, it's like there's just something happening and there's like snot or wind, or things are just... like when we were kissing in the end of Fool's Gold, we're like in the ocean, we like had the plane crash. He just had snot all over his face."
Because they've worked together multiple times, Paltrow asked Hudson if McConaughey gave Hudson "brother energy." While Hudson said "it can be a little sibling-y at times," ultimately she doesn't get "brother energy" from McConaughey.
When it comes to Paltrow's Iron Man co-star Robert Downey Jr., however, the Goop founder felt like she was kissing her sibling. "Like with Robert, like when I kissed him and I was like, 'You've got to be kidding me,'" she said. "This is literally like kissing my brother."
Though Hudson wishes she had better on-screen kisses throughout her career, she did say there was one actor who left a good impression. "You know who was a good kisser, but you didn't see it, cause they cut it out? Was Billy [Crudup]," Hudson said of her Almost Famous co-star. "Billy was good. That was good."
Before their conversation came to an end, Paltrow ask her friend one last juicy question. "Is there a famous person that you've had a thing with that the world does not know about?" Hudson gave a cheeky answer in reply: "Oh yeah. What do you mean? Yeah. Doesn't everybody? If they said no, they're lying. Come on... It's amazing the things you do get away with."
