There are a lot of reasons why the 2003 romantic comedy “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” is a classic in the genre: Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey have electric chemistry, it features “WandaVision” star Kathryn Hahn in the best friend role, and then there’s that yellow dress Hudson wears at the end of the movie.
So, does Hudson know what ever happened to that dress? Does she have it tucked away in her closet?
While talking to Elle about her quarantine fashion following Sunday’s Golden Globes, Hudson was asked to give an update on the famous gown.
“You know what? I have no idea where that dress is!” she told Elle. “I know it was [designed by] Carolina Herrera and our amazing costume designer designed the dress with Carolina’s team. I do not know where it is, but I feel like we should find it!”
The movie features Hudson as Andie, a magazine columnist who chronicles how to lose a guy in 10 days by putting him through a roller coaster of emotions and weird dates. However, the guy she chooses to put through all this, Ben (McConaughey), has his own ulterior motive as he’s told his boss he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days. He chooses Andie to put the moves on.
Both Andie and Ben throw their games aside and show their true feelings for one another at the end of the movie at a glitzy gala in which Andie shows up in that stunning yellow silk dress.
The dress has since become iconic and the movie is a jewel in the genre, despite Hudson admitting back in October to Gwyneth Paltrow that her makeout scenes with McConaughey over the several movies they’ve done together were never great to shoot because they often involved “snot or wind.”
In August, Hudson told Elle she didn’t believe Andie and Ben would be doing well during quarantine if they were still together.
“I’ve always thought about what Matthew and I’s characters would be now, if we were still together,” she said. “It’s actually probably a good amount of time [that has passed] to make a movie about it. We probably would have gotten married with kids. We’re probably miserable right now!”
