Kate Hudson Talks Weight Gain, Spankings, Her Body's Imperfections

Kate Hudson opens up about her body image in a new interview in UK's Telegraph, although she does not address her rumored breast implants. Kate also talks about being naked and spanked in her new film 'The Killer Inside Me.' Here are some excerpts:

On seeing herself in 'The Killer Inside Me':
"I don't like watching myself on the big screen at the best of times. I hardly recognised myself in this one. I'd gained a little weight. I wasn't working out... right before then I had been working out a lot and had become super muscular, which I didn't like either. It wouldn't have been right for that part, I wanted to look plainer. Not glamorous. Small town. There is something kind of masochistic about her. She wasn't easy to empathize with."

On getting spanked by Casey Affleck:
"Ha! There were a couple in there when I thought: God, Casey! He got a bit of power behind it. It was definitely real."

On her body image:
"I'm pretty comfortable with my body. I'm imperfect. The imperfections are there. People are going to see them, but I take the view you only live once and, hey, I'm getting spanked today!"

On preventing 5-year-old son Ryder from seeing the movie:
"I normally take him on the set with me, but not for that one. 'Mommy is going to be naked on the bed, smoking and getting spanked in the next scene, honey!' I guess it will be weird for him when he does eventually watch it. I had to watch my dad die in films. I was 13 when I saw Backdraft and I was bawling."

On watching her parents' sex scenes as a kid:
"It never bothered me. My brothers might feel differently about it but, for me, I felt my parents laid it out for us pretty well. We always had a good perspective about sex. When you grow up with parents in showbiz who are loud and funny and the life of the party, you get pretty relaxed about that stuff."
