Kate Hudson has a message for anyone wondering whether or not her boyfriend likes her buzzcut – and it’s pretty much perfect.

The actor and her California-esque bleach blonde locks have long been synonymous – especially since she starred in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days with Matthew McConaughey in 2003.

So it came as something of a surprise when Hudson, just like Cara DelevingneMillie Bobby Brown and others before her, shaved off her locks earlier this year.



Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week (12 October), Hudson was more than a little perturbed when DeGeneres said: “Your boys and the new boyfriend – everybody likes the hair?

“Because some guys don’t like women with short hair.”

Hudson replied: “Really?”

Then, referring to her new relationship with musician boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, the actor added: “I mean, I hope our relationship can transcend hair.”

DeGeneres also asked how Hudson was adapting to life with her new hairstyle – and wondered aloud if it was itchy growing back “like it is everywhere else”.

“I haven’t gotten itchy,” Hudson replied.

“I’m definitely starting to go through the awkward stage of it growing out. There are pieces sticking up and I have to put it down with product, so it’s interesting.

“I’ve been kind of off my Snapchat game, but I think if I had a mullet I’d be really on my Snapchat game, so it’d be good for my social media presence.”

Hudson cut her hair for a role in the film, Sister – a musical written by singer Sia, and starring Maddie Ziegler.



Sia previously discussed her film directorial debut back in 2015 at Venice Days, a sidebar of the international film festival.

She said the film is based on a one-page story she wrote eight years ago. 

“I was too embarrassed to tell anyone I wanted to make a movie, because I thought it would be seen as a vanity project, because I was a singer,” she said, “and then last year after I made the Chandelier video, I realised that I was pretty good at directing, so I felt a little bit braver.”

Sia went on to reveal that she had worked on the screenplay with the children’s author Dallas Clayton, saying: “For me, the process was I work out the movie: I’ll act it out, I’ll have the dialogue already in my head.

“It’s really the formatting […] I can’t be bothered to learn [screenwriting software] Final Draft. I’m not a technical person. Like, when I sing, I just want to sing the melody and write the lyrics. I don’t want to have to do production, which is very technical. I don’t enjoy that.”
