‘SOMETHING BORROWED’ STAR KATE HUDSON IS WISHING FOR ‘SOMETHING BLUE’

Something Borrowed Based on the bestselling novel by Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed centers on a New York attorney named Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) who harbors a crush for her best friend Darcy’s (Kate Hudson) fiance (Colin Egglesfield).  The Office’s John Krasinski is Ethan, Rachel’s close friend and confidante.

“I think it’s important that you know that Darcy is a very self-centered person,” said Hudson.  “That’s who she is.  It’s all about her.  For me I was really looking at this as where she goes in the second movie, if we get to do Something Blue. With that, you need to see how selfish this person is.  But she’s not doing it to hurt anybody and it was an important change from the book that we did for the movie.  We didn’t want to make it seem like what they did was okay.  In the book, Darcy is way nastier than she is in the movie.  It would have made it too easy for them (Rachel and Darcy’s fiance) to be having an affair.”

Something Blue, Giffin’s follow-up to Something Borrowed, delves into the growing relationship between Darcy and Ethan.  Click on the media bar and listen to Hudson discuss her character’s journey in Something Blue.

EMILY GIFFIN SAYS FANS WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED WITH ‘SOMETHING BORROWED’

Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed, the romantic comedy starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson, is based on a bestselling novel by Emily Giffin.  During a recent interview to promote the film, Giffin was asked about her opinions on the term, ‘chick lit.”

“The label ‘chick lit’ only bothers me when it’s used to disparage women in general and to sort of say, ‘well if it’s about women or for women and it’s about relationships, then therefore it has got to be beach read fluff,” said Giffin. “That’s akin to saying that everything we care about is fluff…I think the same thing goes for romantic comedies.  If you say I don’t like any romantic comedies that’s like saying you don’t like any movies about relationships.  These issues are very serious.  This is about who you are spending the rest of your life and I think if men go to it with an open mind, which will happen, they are going to like this.”

Diehard fans of Something Borrowed will notice various changes in the film version, but Giffin is more than satisfied with the end result.  Click on the media bar and listen to Giffin talk about one of those changes, which deals with Darcy’s (Hudson) hair color (director Luke Greenfield is heard laughing in the clip).

KATE HUDSON TALKS PREGNANCY, THE ROYAL WEDDING AND “TUMULTUOUS” CAREER

Something Borrowed

Actress Kate Hudson, who won a Golden Globe for Almost Famous and starred in the underrated (and downright violent) Michael Winterbottom film noir The Killer Inside Me, co-stars with Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski in the romantic comedy Something Borrowed.

Based on the bestselling novel by Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed centers on Rachel (Goodwin), a New York attorney whose dream guy (Colin Egglesfield) is getting hitched to her self-involved best friend Darcy (Hudson).  If the picture does well, a sequel (based on Giffin’s follow-up book, Something Blue) focusing on Darcy’s continuing journey is in the offing.

Although she has starred in such high profile films as Nine, Bride Wars, and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, the A-list actress admits that show business has its share of challenges.  “It’s the most tumultuous career you could ever have chosen,” said Hudson who sat down with co-star Egglesfield to promote Something Borrowed.  “If you don’t realize you’re going to be up on top of the mountain in one minute and then down at the bottom trying to somehow trying to work your way up…it’s definitely not the most consistent job.  I saw it in my parents.  You have to have other things in your life that are more important. That fulfill you just as much if not more than acting.  It becomes a really hard thing because if you do love to act, which I do, and if it’s not about fame, you’ll always work because you can just be as happy doing local theater and working with a group of your friends.”
