Actress hits out at rumours of an eating disorder


Kate Hudson has slammed rumours that she suffers from an eating disorder.

The Glee actress had previously sued the National Enquirer for claims implying she had a eating disorder back in 2006 saying she was: "looking like skin and bone." The actress received both and apology and compensation from the paper. But she isn't done insisting the dangers of such rumours yet. 

According to the actress, it isn't the lie itself that bothers her most, it’s the impression it gives to young girls who believe it. 

The mum-of-two spoke to Red magazine and explained: “If there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder. I won’t have girls – even if it is just one or two who care – thinking that. Because it is a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite.”

The actress continued on to say that, most of all, she wants girls to be happy within themselves: “I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are… The thing is, I’m lucky because I was loved. But I have seen so many young women who can’t feel good about themselves because they just don’t have… that love.”

Kate is currently engaged to Muse frontman, Matt Bellamy, and has said that there are no wedding plans, yet: “I’m not in a rush. We are basically married. It’s really about when we are going to take the time to plan a wedding.”
