We weren’t so sure about this crop of five new fall series — but to our surprise, they’ve ripened quite nicely.
When they debuted, we thought we might hate them. The ditzy blondes. The malevolent horsemen. The cranked-up-to-11 scenes of Robin Williams’ improv. But as these fall TV series we doubted developed beyond their pilot episodes, they began to grow on us: We laughed at uterus jokes and rooted for telekinetically gifted teens. Here’s what changed our minds.

Kate Hudson is stunning as ever on the cover of the new issue of Harper's Bazaar and the 34-year-old actress also opens up to the magazine about family life, hnew career projects and keeping up with the latest red carpet style!
"People think we own all these dresses," Hudson told the magazine, "but we borrow them! I can't afford to buy that stuff." She added that while there are certain things she splurges on, it's rare since she has two kids and school tuition to pay. "I'm not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could, but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable."

The 49-year-old, who's currently writing her autobiography and recording a new album, is featured on the cover of Fashion magazine and admits that while the past few years have been turbulent, she's hoping Hollywood can forgive her. "Listen, if [Orange is the New Black star] Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert [Downey Jr.] can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance. I know there is hope for me."

Kate Hudson is apparently a big "Game of Thrones" fan. She and fiancé Matthew Bellamy dressed up their entire family as characters from the HBO fantasy series for a Halloween bash at her Pacific Palisades home.
According to Us Weekly, Hudson wore a "furry crop top with matching fur boots" (maybe as Ygritte?) while Bellamy dressed as Jon Snow. The "Game of Thrones" theme continued with an ice world setting and Patron ice bar, likely inspired by the Wall.
The Halloween party was loaded with celebrities, including Hudson's mother Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Bradley Cooper and girlfriend Suki Waterhouse, Fergie and Josh Duhamel, and Lea Michele, Jessica Alba, Chelsea Handler and Russell Simmons, among others. Their costumes ranged from German-themed (Hawn, Russell and Michele) to a gorilla (Cooper), and everything in between. »
Each month's Supporting Actress Smackdown inspires us to go back to the year in question for a little context. When the movies of 1968 were playing in theaters, making their case for Oscar glory the following spring, the world was experiencing a time of great unrest. The Vietnam War was raging; The Prague Spring was happening; Martin Luther King Jr was killed; Racial tensions ran high in the Civil Rights fight; student protests in France raged (derailing the usual Cannes process - no Palme D'Or that year); the Zodiac killer began his murder spree; Andy Warhol was almost killed. (All of these events have received cinematic treatments over the years in films like The Dreamers, Zodiac, I Shot Andy Warhol and countless historical epics and war films.)

Per the U.K.'s Daily Mail, Kurt donned a white wig, lederhosen, shaggy white beard and cap and carried a walking stick while Goldie looked like either one of the von Trapps from the The Sound of Music or a bar wench wearing a blonde wig with long German braids and a pink bonnet and dirndl. The latter is a classic Bavarian dress featuring a skirt and low-cut white blouse. The longtime partners were all smiles as they turned up at »
