Just like in real life, Hollywood certainly has double standards. Men who date lots of different women aren’t judged for playing the field, but women who date lots of men are… wait a minute… could it be that they aren’t being judged either? Adorable starlet and single mom of Ryder Robinson, 6, Kate Hudson has had a revolving door of lovers ever since her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson ended, and she manages to rise above the double standard fray!
We think it’s great that Kate is paving the way in the single mom dating world, because so many celebrity single moms either don’t date, or they guard their romantic lives intensely to deflect judgment that shouldn’t even be there to begin with!
Click below for a fun look at Kate’s many adventures in love, which she has bravely played out in the public eye.
Kate Hudson really seems to know how to play the game of love. She always has a smile on her face, whether she’s in a relationship, or in the midst of a high-profile break-up. Her lighthearted humorous approach to romance may be why Kate is always having a great time on the dating scene. The starlet told Elle UK,
I love boys… [they are] so easy to figure out. What did Dr. Laura say? Something like, ‘All men want is sex and for you to make them a sandwich.’ I thought that was really funny — and not entirely untrue.
- Owen Wilson
Kate and Owen Wilson are the quintessential California girl and dude. Their love affair was also as up and down as the California surf! The golden haired duo shared a lot of laughs while filming You, Me and Dupree together, but their offscreen relationship was filled with a lot more drama than comedy. They broke up and got back together multiple times, and Wilson was clearly deeply troubled at the time of one of their last break-ups, as reports surfaced that he tried to take his own life.
- Dax Shepherd
Kate moved on to develop a romance with funny man Dax Shepherd, no doubt for some comic relief. Here the couple was spotted out and about and getting cozy in Boston with Ryder in tow. And here, Dax gives Ryder a lift on his shoulders.
But it must not have been all fun and games because Kate and Dax fizzled out as quickly as they got together.
- Lance Armstrong
They may not have ridden off into the sunset together, but Kate and Lance Armstrong were going “strong” for quite some time, enjoying a steamy romance together. The two were often seen out and about together with their children from previous relationships. They even spent Father’s Day together with their children, and Hudson’s ex-husband Chris Robinson. Hudson also indulged her athletic boyfriend with shared bike rides and tennis matches.
After their split, Armstrong moved on to his current girlfriend and new baby mama Anna Hansen, with whom he has an almost 1 year-old son, Max. And now the couple has another child on the way… his fifth!
When Kate heard Lance was going to have his first child with Anna she graciously said,
It’s amazing. Congratulations. He’s a great father. He already is an amazing father.
Sources for Lance didn’t make him sound as gracious, saying that the famous cyclist broke-up with Hudson because she was “too needy.”
- Alex Rodriguez
Ever the supportive girlfriend, Kate Hudson became a fixture at beau Alex Rodriguez‘s baseball games. Kate quickly became one of the New York Yankees third baseman’s biggest fans, often seen smiling dotingly from the stands.
People Magazine reported,
Sitting on the front row, Kate goes nuts when she watches him play,” a source tells People. “Her excitement and cheering are infectious.
Apparently, Rodriguez was just as smitten with the actress, reportedly giving her a $39,000 white-gold ring set with pink sapphires and diamonds from Louis Vuitton to thank her for her support after his team won the World Series.
Of course, given the ring, speculation that wedding bells may be ringing for the couple soon followed, but they didn’t hit it out of the park with their short-lived, 7 month-long love affair.
Rodriguez has since moved on to another hot blonde actress, Cameron Diaz.
- Matt Bellamy
Hudson’s current amour of the past 3 months is British rock singer Matt Bellamy, of the band Muse. It seems Kate is going back to her roots (having married Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes) dating a rocker instead of an athlete or actor.
Of course, there are already all sorts of reports about how “serious” Kate and Matt’s budding romance is, and recent reports are even claiming that they couple is moving in together.
But if we’ve learned anything from Kate’s chain of love, it’s that he’s probably just another fun link on her romantic journey.
