Don’t worry if you can’t afford to dress like Kate Hudson, because neither can she. That frumpy, homely old bag talked with Harper’s Bazaar and finally explained her ragged appearance: it’s because she’s a Poor! Like us!

Hudson discusses red carpet fashion in her HB interview, saying,

People think [celebrities] own all these dresses, but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it’s very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition.

What, do your kids go to Hogwarts? Give me a break. Goldie Hawn‘s daughter, who’s been independently famous since she was 21, goes on to add other examples of how normal and relatable she is:

I’m not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could, but the truth is, things are just so expensive.

I guess that makes sense, since you work a minimum wage job at Starbucks.

Don’t get me wrong– I don’t dislike Kate Hudson. If you discount her decision to sign a contract with Glee, she’s never done anything horribly offensive (publicly, at least). I get that’s she’s trying to be relatable and keep it real, but the chick’s got an estimated net worth of $38 million dollars. If you’ve been in a Matthew McConaughey movie in the last ten years, nobody wants to hear about your financial struggz.


Hudson goes on to say, “My mom wasn’t a big shopper for us. I think she wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle.” I think her words are well-intentioned, but they’re majorly off-base. Nobody doesn’t want to hear about the sacrifices you made by growing up in a multi-million-dollar home in Malibu.

I’m not saying your comments are evil, Kate, but they’re pretty misguided. I’m sorry you don’t get to keep all the Dior Haute Couture, but if your resumé includes Almost Famous, you’re not One Of Us.
