Kate Hudson Goes Brunette

Kate Hudson BrunetteBauer-Griffin

She’s wigging out! After taking some time off to bond with her family — including son Ryder, baby Bing and fiancé Matthew Bellamy — Kate Hudson surfaced in New York City on Tuesday sporting a new hair hue.

The actress, seen on the set of her latest film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, was wearing a curly brunette wig — quite a change from her typical straight blonde locks. But naturally, she made the faux hair look pretty fabulous. Between takes, the mom grabbed snacks with Ryder, and visited with Bellamy. Tell us: What do you think of Hudson’s latest look?

Amanda on

She has such a beautiful face she could go bald – but blonde looks best on her.

rhonda on

thank goodness its a wig. She looks so much older.

Liz on

It makes her look older, I love the golden hair! I also love her!!!

cris on

I don’t like it at all!

D on

I thought it was Sara Gilbert

Holy Xenu! on

Ha! For some reason, the title of this movie reminds me of “The Rural Juror” even if its not as fun to say. (*30 Rock reference)

Ann on

Reminds me of Debra Winger in the movie An Officer and a Gentleman.

Jester on

Glad it’s a wig (like we couldn’t tell…). It looks horrible on her, but if she’s playing a frump, it’s perfect!

Guest on

Technically she did not go brunette as this is a wig for a movie not her dying her hair for real

lindsey on

bad … thankfully its not her real hair ;)

Samantha on

I thought it was Sara Gilbert also! Not a good look for her!!

Donna on

Yikes! Getting a little chubby, too.

Tracy on

It makes her look very plain and average… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Robin on

I also thought it was a photo of Sara Gilbert at first. LOL Kate isn’t nearly as attractive looking with dark, frizzy hair. This is not a good look for her at all.

elysmmers on

She looks like Sarah Gilbert

dk on

She doesn’t look like she lost the baby weight. Considering that she can easily afford a private trainer (we all should be so lucky), this is a very unflattering picture. The part in the wig looks fake and I wonder why any director would want a movie actress to wear a wig that obviously looks like a wig unless he wants the actress to look like she is wearing a wig with is essential in playing the character in the movie.

Jessica Jean on

Not liking it!

seaandsun on

she’s annoying and looks bad in dark hair. good thing is a wig.

LPW on

Clearly, it’s the blonde hair that makes her attractive. Thank God for blonde.

sadie on

That looks horrable!!! so much better blonde.

Cookie on

I think it makes her look a older. Golden blonde is more her color. Also, the wig is just too much curl..does not appear to be a very good wig to me.

Allie on

yaawwwwwwwwwwwnnnnnn…..stretch

lexie on

completely ordinary… most blondes faces can’t handle brown hair; you have to be really beautiful to look good with brown locks.

sandra on

Her face is drowning under so much hair. Unfortunatley her features aren’t strong enough to pull it off. Good thing it’s a wig!

Diana on

She doesn´t look good.

KB on

It makes her look older, heavier, less attractive, imo. If anyone was ever “meant” to be blonde, it is Ms. Hudson.

Brooklyn on

Doesn’t work for her. She looks better blonde IMO.

Carol on

So beautiful, still love her in blonde hair the best…

Donna on

uggg!

Lisa on

She definitely looks better as a blonde.

Tara on

ewww bad :(
she is a gorgeous blond!

Barb on

“But naturally, she made the faux hair look pretty fabulous.” Uh…no, not even close. Thank goodness it’s a wig!

Daysee on

I hate it already.

CJ on

eekks I dig her but that color is not good on her

Sam on

Looks like Sara Gilbert.

Gail Shapiro on

Certainly not her best look. If she wants to hide in the crowd, this might work!

andy on

it kinda makes her look old, fat and frumpy …

mom of 2 on

She looks way better as a blonde!!

Morrrrg on

ew, she looks old. she should really go back to blonde, she looked so young and carefree

ellen on

lighter is better not a fan

Petra on

She looks like she is 50…wow
bad color for her

LBW on

So not her! It makes her look older and heavier.

Guest on

Definitely should stick to being a blonde..

NIkki on

Oh my freekkin God, that looks so different! Not sure about the brunette!

mikey on

she looks like sarah gilber from roseanne her daughter on the show…also on “the talk”

Jill K on

I agree with D, she does look just like Sarah Gilbert!

Jana on

Bad picture, on other photos, she looks 100% better.

Luv on

Thats funny! It seems Im one of many who thought it was Sarah Gilbert. I would NEVER have thought of them as similar.Hair color can change EVERYTHING!

Ken on

Darker is best, blond looks too fake. Not a pretty woman to begin with.

Crystal on

She’s already working and shuttling that baby around like he’s luggage when he is only a few months old??? Idiot!

Kim on

Yuck, glad it’s a wig! She also looks frumpy and fat. NOT a good look.

Guest on

I wonder if she is starting to lose hair after her pregnancy and is covering up the bald spots with a wig. 3 to 6 months after the delivery is the time when most hair loss takes place. Yikes!

Berta on

Yuck! She looks like every other fat-assed housewife in the mid west when they go to the mall.

Mick on

Kate is a total buttaface. She could use implants.

Makes her look much older! Glad it’s only a wig!

She is one of the few women who actually look better blonde!!!

Barbara on

Honestly, the hair isn’t the problem. She IS beautiful, but she does look frumpy in the picture because the jacket it so….unfitted? It has horizontal stripes on the arms / vertical stripes everywhere else, and her purse is slung across all of it. Yes, the wig could have been styled better, but the old / frumpy look is the outfit. Kate couldn’t be a more beautiful person.

I thought it was Sarah Gilbert too, except Sarah is prettier. Blonde looks far more flattering and sexy on Kate!!

Angela on

Perfect for blending in with America.

Ali on

Wow, she looks a lot older. The blonde hair always gave her a glowing, radiant look. She looks gorgeous in blonde.

markie on

With dark hair, a person’s face is the focal point. She should keep her hair blonde.

I hate it. She is a plain jane with brown hair. The blonde hair makes all the difference in Kate!

She is aging quickly– whatever her hair color. Was very cute ten years ago. Not so much now

Nameless on

It is obviously for a movie part and obviously they are trying to make her homely looking…I like her hair blonde, but I doubt that a sexy brunette hairstyle would look bad on her.

catherine on

Berta, sounds like u r THE FAT ASS housewife/househusband in MW, u fat ass hater!

Don’t like the dark hair on her. She looks so plain.
