Skipping the Aperol Spritz!
Kate Hudson chose to abstain from alcohol ahead of filming her iconic bikini scene in “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.”
After watching a clip of herself striding alongside a pool in an orange two-piece, the actress told “This Morning” viewers on Wednesday that she was “waiting” to get that moment out of the way.
“While everyone else was having Aperol Spritzes in Greece, I was just waiting for that scene to be shot so I could just join everybody,” the 43-year-old explained.
“Everybody was having a great time,” Hudson continued. “I was like, ‘I’ll take that cucumber and feta.’”
The Fabletics co-creator — who plays a “bold, very loud, tone-deaf … [and] not that smart” character named Birdie Jay in the “Knives Out” sequel — hasn’t been in a major film since 2016 and said “waiting on the sideline” was “hard.”
“Because of the way my career has gone, the movies that I’ve wanted to make are not the movies that I’ve been getting,” she explained to Vanity Fair earlier this month, gushing that her latest character felt like hitting a “sweet spot.”
The Golden Globe winner noted that she didn’t put any “pressure” on herself on set after her hiatus.
“In terms of … being driven by fear, that’s never really been the way I move through life,” Hudson told the outlet. “I just want to do good work, always.”
While promoting the Dec. 23 Netflix release, the Oscar nominee also spoke about the nepo baby controversy that has gone viral since New York Magazine’s recent cover story.
Hudson, who was raised by mom Goldie Hawn and stepdad Kurt Russell, told The Independent on Saturday that nepotism ultimately “doesn’t matter” in Hollywood “as long as [hopefuls] work hard and kill it.”
The “Fool’s Gold” star’s comments sparked backlash, with one Twitter user writing that her words were spoken “like a true a true nepo baby.”
Another added, “i don’t understand so many of these people who clearly benefitted from parental connections (and that’s ok) who go out of their way to say [this].”
Hudson, who believes that “storytelling” is in her “blood,” is the mother of sons Ryder, 18, and Bingham, 11, as well as daughter Rani, 4.
