Kate Hudson has weight fluctuations

Actress Kate Hudson may seem all fit and fine, but she says she has never been able to keep her weight consistent for a long period of time.

“I have fluctuated (in weight) my whole life. I fluctuate at least five pounds every month,” people.com quoted Hudson as saying.

“I really want to reach people that are asking, ‘How do I get there?'” she added.

The 36-year-old, who has been dieting for years, feels that while body shape is important, but it’s not everything.

“It’s about health and mindfulness. Because you can have the greatest body and you can be really unhappy if that’s all you’re working toward,” she said.

“I think we’ve put so much focus on the results that everybody is forgetting to enjoy the process. And really the only way you can get there in a way that is meaningful is if you enjoy it. And everybody has a different way of finding out what that is,” Hudson added.

Getting fame was painful: David Schwimmer

Former “Friends” star David Schwimmer says it was “painful” for him to find fame as he didn’t understand why people were treating him “special”.

“I didn’t understand why people were treating me as if I were special, and I found that painful because I hadn’t changed, and I didn’t like the idea of it. I didn’t like the idea that someone could suddenly get special treatment for doing nothing other than being on TV. I just didn’t like the idea of it,” Schwimmer said in a statement.

Schwimmer is playing the character of American attorney and businessman Robert Kardashian in the American true crime anthology television series series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”.

Robert, who died due to esophageal cancer in 2003, was the father of reality TV personalities Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian.

The 10-episode series will explore the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and manoeuvring on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defence shrewdness and the Los Angeles Police Department history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

Along with Schwimmer, the show features a star-studded cast with Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, Billy Magnussen as Kato Kaelin and Courtney B Vance as Johnnie Cochran.

“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” will go on air in India on Star World Premiere HD on Monday.
