Kate Hudson covers the October issue of British Elle, out September 1, and in the interview she talks about her new relationship, staying in touch with her ex for their son's sake and her workout, music and reading habits. Here are a few excerpts from Elle's press release:
On her new boyfriend, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy:
On marriage plans:
"It's definitely not something I'm looking for. But the divorce doesn't put me off. I'll just see what happens. I think a lot of times people are terrified of love and stop themselves from experiencing it. I don't ever want to get that jaded. I do believe in love. I believe that when you really open yourself up to love, it's the most beautiful thing."
On her ex-husband, Chris Robinson:
"Chris is a wellspring of information. He knows more about music than anyone I've ever met. I still feel close to him. When you're divorced and raising a child together, the communication has to stay alive. It's hard sometimes. If you have kids with someone, make sure you really, really like the father because, for your child's sake, you have to be on the same page forever. Chris has moved on, he's remarried and had a baby and when you both have new people in your life, you have to really stay on it. I think Chris and I both have that priority checked. My favourite Muse song? Ha ha ha! I'm not well-versed enough on that. I'm getting there though. Matt and I are just learning about each other and it's wonderful."
On her workout regimen:
"I am, by nature, active and I have to work out. I usually do two hours each day when I'm at home. I dance, I like to spin, I've got into some of the Tracy Anderson stuff - I work with this girl Anna at her studio. And I've had a trainer called Nicole Stewart for 15 years - she's trained me when I've needed to get into work mode. I'm pretty disciplined. It's important to be conscious of your health and not indulge too much in the things that are bad for you. Do I mind having my appearance constantly scrutinized? I don't have enough time on this planet to worry about things like that. I'm more concerned with if I'm raising my son properly, with what makes my family happy, with what makes me happy."
