Kate Bosworth On Weight Loss: "A Dark Time In My Life"

Kate Bosworth graces the February 2008 cover of Vogue and dishes about boyfriends, weight loss and more:

On her ex Orlando Bloom: "Orlando and I met when we were kids. Blue Crush hadn't come out. Lord of the Rings hadn't come out. ... He was the first big heartbreak. ... First love: You feel like it's the be-all and end-all. ... To put as little pressure on the relationship you're in is very important. I regret that it was too intense for both of us."

On still remaining friends with ex-boyfriends: "The fact that I'm very close with my past relationships is something I pride myself on. My mom is still close to her first husband. It's nice to be able to enjoy someone in a different form."

On losing 12 pounds from stress:
"Whenever anything happens that's very painful or stressful, we all lose weight -- my mother, my aunt, my grandmother. ... I honestly thought something was wrong with me. ... I was concerned for my health and my fans, the public. I would have said, don't look at this as the standard of some kind of beauty and health. [It was] a very dark time in my life."

On meeting model/musician boyfriend James Rousseau at a Marc Jacobs after-party: "I looked like a mess. I always ask him why he didn't turn and walk away. He had no idea who I was. He said, 'You're an actress? You're not Kate Hudson, are you?' For a little while there he called me 'Miss Hudson' as a joke. [Afterward] we left and sang Dylan songs at Maggie's Pub. Sitting on a bar stool, having a beer. He saw the potential. He wanted to fix me in a little way. And to be quite honest, he did. He was such a ray of light in my life."
