Kate Hudson: It’s rare to see a comedy with two female leads

Kate Hudson says it’s still “rare” for two women to star in a comedy.

The 43-year-old actress, known for her roles in Almost Famous and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, famously co-starred with Anne Hathaway in the romantic comedy Bride Wars about two belligerent friends get married.

“I think we have a long way to go,” Hudson said at a retrospective of Bafta’s career, A Life In Pictures, on Friday. I really do.

“You have these great moments, like watching great movies, you know, women at the wheel, Women Talking (2002). You know for sure… there’s appetite and space for it, but I think I wish there was more space.

“I mean Wonder Woman, you’ve got Captain Marvel, it’s like Marvel has her arms around women.

“You have The Hunger Games. Like, I think it’s happening but, like, two, you know, comedy about two women, it’s just… very rare. It is rarer.”

Hudson was asked how she copes with the negative critical reaction to her romantic comedies, which have been a huge success at the box office.

She’s won a Golden Globe and a Bafta for Almost Famous but has been nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award (Razzies) for Stupid Gold, My Best Friend Girl, and Mother’s Day.

The Razzies, which “glorifies” the worst films, giving gongs to Hollywood’s underrated films of the year, awarded Hudson the worst actress award for musical drama of the year. 2021 Music, directed by singer-songwriter Sia.

“It’s interesting when you make them and you love them, and you see how people react to them that they don’t get as heavily criticized as other films,” Hudson said.

“But, you know, then there are the little things that creep in and some people really celebrate how good it is for that genre of film.

“The bride war is different. I produced it and, you know, wanted, liked, pushed… pushed it the best way I could.

“Ultimately, it’s really in the hands of the people you’re working with — the director, the studio, the editor — and you can fight as much as you want and scream as much as you want but it won’t. must be yours. call.”

Hudson said she is developing a project with her friend – and the creator of the hit HBO Girls series – Lena Dunham.

She also said: “Now my kids are starting to get a little older and Covid has hit… I was just staying with Reese (Witherspoon) the other day, one of my great friends for a while. It’s been a long time and she’s doing such amazing things for the women in the industry.

“But I really want to continue… I want to produce everything and I also want to be a director.”

Hudson recently starred in the Knives Out comedy-mystery sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, starring Daniel Craig as the brilliant detective Benoit Blanc.

She said former James Bond star Craig was “stupid and goofy” and “a bit shy” and “wants us all to have a good time” on set.

Hudson added: “Daniel was immediately adorable. I mean, and very, I don’t mean what I thought… Edward (Norton) said there could be more Blanc than Bond in Daniel.

So he set a really, really endearing, generous tone right away.
