Kate Hudson has revealed a fun fact about her blockbuster How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.
Speaking at BAFTA’s Life In Pictures event, the 43-year-old blonde said she fought for Matthew McConaughey, 53, to play with her in the 2003 film.
“We have the same energy, I want to play with him,” she told the London audience after noting that she and the executives “repeatedly banged our heads against the wall.”

“The studio and I disagree,” she continued in conversation with moderator Briony Hanson.
The actress and entrepreneur continued, “I’m a cheerleader for actors in our industry, but for romantic comedies, you need that guy to have chemistry.”
Kate, daughter of Hollywood icon Goldie Hawn, said she has finally ‘approved everything’ regarding the Paramount film.
When then-CEO Sherry Lansing asked who was her first choice for the role of Benjamin Barry, Hudson named McConaughey.
Behind the scenes: ‘We have energy together, I want to play with him,’ the blonde beauty recently said
‘We’re both competitive, we’re both super athletic. We love to push each other, and I just love Matthew’s commitment to everything; he focuses on razors.
‘What you think he is, is, is,’ she said of her attractive woman during Friday’s panel.
It comes after the mother-of-three said last month on the Jonathan Ross show that she would ‘rewatch’ the romantic comedy if given the chance.
‘Both of us [Matthew and I] had the same feeling about it – if for some reason a great idea pops up on our desk and it reads well, yes, I’d totally reconsider it,’ she said.
‘I love working with Matthew. I don’t know… I’m sure it will start with marital strife. Or maybe… I don’t know. How to lose a husband after 20 years…?’ Kate brainstormed.

The screen duo also collaborated on the 2008 film Fool’s Gold, in which they played an estranged couple who rediscover their love for each other after embarking on a lost treasure adventure. .
Speaking of the kiss in the film, she said: ‘It’s definitely not a fun thing to shoot.
‘The sea, swimming and kissing are not always pleasant. Everything that happens in the ocean, such as bad luck… we’re like stepping on water trying to stay above water.’
She added: ‘Matthew and I had very romantic kisses and then we had very unromantic kisses. So the sequel is going to really bring some fun.’
