If you call yourself a true fan of American English movies, you can’t miss out on “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” This epic romantic comedy stars the amazing Kate Hudson and the charming Matthew McConaughey.
Kate Hudson, known for her role in “Almost Famous,” plays Andie Anderson, a magazine columnist in the movie. It was released in February 2003 and became an instant hit. In the film, Andie decides to write an article titled “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” where she tests traditional behaviors that often drive men away. The lucky guy chosen for her experiment is Ben Barry, an advertising executive played by McConaughey. Coincidentally, Ben makes a bet with his coworkers that he can make any woman fall in love with him within the same ten-day period.
The movie also features talented actors like Annie Parisse, Thomas Lennon, and Bebe Neuwirth. It was a box office success, earning over $177 million.
Hudson reminisced about the filming experience, saying that it was a different era for making movies. She mentioned that she and McConaughey were part of the last generation of actors who truly experienced the old-school Hollywood process of filmmaking. They spent four months together shooting “How to Lose a Guy,” and later had a six-month shoot for their 2008 rom-com “Fool’s Gold.” According to Hudson, such lengthy shoots are rare nowadays, except for big-budget movies like Marvel films.
In a recent interview, Hudson shared her idea for a potential sequel to “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” She wondered what their characters would be like if they were still together after all this time. She imagined that Andie would be ambitious and successful, running something important.
Despite the possibility of a sequel, Hudson has remained close with her co-stars. She reunited with Kathryn Hahn, who played her best friend in the movie, for the 2022 film “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.” Hahn expressed her admiration for Hudson, describing her as normal, cool, and the best. She was amazed to work with her again and witness her incredible performance in “Glass Onion.”
