Kate Hudson talks dating apps
If Kate Hudson is looking for a new guy, she's probably not doing it online. The actress, who was linked with Nick Jonas last year, opened up about her love life with Ellen DeGeneres this week, admitting she's been tempted by dating apps but isn't totally sure about them. "What's crazy is that there's a lot of, you know, celebrity types on these dating apps, which kind of makes you go, 'Oh, maybe,'" 't imagine," she said, according to Us Weekly. "So, you look at a guy, he's hot, and then you see his profile and you're like, 'Maybe I'll text him or maybe we'll match,' and then you start texting and then it just goes away. Like, all your girlfriends seem to maybe go to lunch and then it's like, 'What happened to that guy you met on Raya or Bumble and whatever else?' I just think, why don't you just meet a guy in Starbucks? Why don't you just go up to someone and why doesn't a guy have the guts to come up and say, 'Hey, I'm so-and-so. How about we hang out?'" Speaking to Complex last year, Nick avoided confirming he and Kate had dated. Kate's incredible," he said. "We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful."
