Why Kate Hudson And Matthew McConaughey Don't Bone

Well here's a fun thing: Glamour outsourced the authorship of its cover story to Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey this month. The subject is "why they would rather be friends than hook up." It's hard to say whether we learn precisely that, though. What we do learn: that if McConaughey "slapped ten asses" on the street he could pick Kate Hudson's out of an ass lineup. That the name of his production company is Just Keep Livin. That his personal motto is Just Keep Livin. That Just Keep Livin's first production is a movie called Surfer, Dude. And that Just Keep Livin has been making Surfer, Dude for seven years but production swung into high gear over the summer, as Kate explains.

KH: I'm sure a lot of readers will know about this movie because there's a lot of pictures of you in Malibu.

MM: I heard that.

KH: In the tabloids, yeah. A lot of pictures with your shirt off.

MM: Yeah.

Oh and it gets even more deep.

KH: OK, so I have another question. Explain your trailer living. Why do you like to live in a trailer?

MH: When I came back from Australia, I had life down to one backpack.

KH: Yeah, that was your thing. You wanted to fit everything in a backpack. What does that tell you?...

MM: Fine. Let me just say this. It's easier to pull it off when it is summer. But it's harder when it's wintertime. Because warm clothes take up more room.

So I think I can safely hazard a guess as to why Kate Hudson, despite having the freedom to make out with him for the sake of "business", would not want a relationship with Matthew McConaughey. Have you ever had a conversation this boring with someone you weren't boning?

But no, he really is like that: Anna tells me he found the motto "Just Keep Livin" in a self-help book.

What is this new trend of celebrities interviewing other celebrities? Granted, the Wired pieces with David Byrne interviewing Thom Yorke (and then explaining the record industry to the public, huzzah!) are brilliant, but isn't that just kind of robbing culture/arts/entertainment journalists of the golden calf they seek as soon as they decide to pick celebrity-based reporting over news-based reporting? That seems terribly unfair.
