Kate Hudson wants to shoot down the rumors about one thing in her life: her weight.
The actress graces the cover of Red this month and tells the magazine, "If there is one thing I will never have, it is an eating disorder. I won't have girls—even if it is just one or two who care—thinking that. Because it is a serious sickness, not something to plaster on the cover of a magazine. And I am the opposite."
She also addressed gaining 70 pounds during her first pregnancy and explained how she wants to send the right message to women everywhere.
"I want girls to love themselves. I want them to feel good about who they are…The thing is, I'm lucky because I was loved. But I have seen so many young women who can't feel good about themselves because they just don't have…that love."
The bubbly blonde opened up to the women's mag about putting her wedding planning to Muse frontman Matt Bellamy on the back burner, for now.
"I'm not in a rush. We are basically married. It's really about when are we going to take the time to plan a wedding," she said, also noting that she wears her engagement ring every so often due to its size.
"[I'm not wearing my engagement ring] because it can be…a little much. I like to wear my push gift [another ring] for pushing out Bing."
And lastly, Hudson confessed that her fun-loving mama, Goldie Hawn, ran a tight ship at home when she was growing up.
"Oh, if there were drugs being smoked in our house I would have gotten a wooden spoon upside my head. They were tough. They were fun, they were cool, but they were not hippy-dippy parents. If I'd come home with a tattoo, they'd have told me to find an apartment. But cut to years later, we all have a tattoo!"
