There have a been a lot of rumors about Kate Hudson over the years and some of the most recent claim that she is suffering from an eating disorder.
Kate wasted no time setting the record straight and addressed the eating disorder rumors in a recent interview with Red Magazine.
“If there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder,” she said of the rumors. “I won’t have girls – even if it is just one or two who care – thinking that. Because it’s a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite.”
Kate said that she has struggled with her weight, especially after pregnancy. She even admitted that when she was pregnant with her son Ryder, she gained 70 pounds.

She lost the weight by exercising and eating right, but said that she thinks it is important for girls and women of every size to respect and love their bodies.
“I want to be giving girls the message that, sometimes you do gain 70 pounds having a baby, and you can lose it if you want. The whole point is I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are,” she said.
Kate isn’t only laid back about her weight, she also doesn’t worry too much about her relationship with her long-time love and the father of her son Bing, Matthew Bellamy.
The two have been together for several years but have yet to tie the knot.
“I’m not in a rush. We are basically married. It is really about when are we going to take the time to plan a wedding,” she said.
She went on to say that she is surprised she was willing to start a lasting relationship with a musician.
“After [ex-husband] Chris I didn’t think I’d ever date a musician again. That world is difficult. But it is what it is, right? I like people with musicality … I find it attractive,” she admits.
