How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) Poster


Kate Hudson improvised plastering Matthew McConaughey with kisses during the scene where she introduces the new dog. This is why McConaughey looks genuinely surprised.
Much of the scene where Andie crashes Ben's "boy's night" was improvised. Kate Hudson had the idea to toss the platter of veggies at the guys seated at the poker table. Donald Petrie, the director, knew she was going to do this but the actors in the scene were truly surprised.
A lot of the scenes were improvised, e.g. the scene with the "family album".
There were an estimated $14,200,000 worth of jewels lent to the film.
Andie's friends, Michele and Jeannie, are named after the authors of the book: Michele Alexander and Jeannie Long.
Andie wears a Harry Winston diamond wreath necklace with an 84-carat yellow diamond pendant (called the "Isadora") attached, valued at approximately $5,280,000 and a pair of 5-carat radiant cut yellow diamond stud earrings worth approximately $125,000.
Katherine Heigl is one of the models on the covers of a "Composure Magazine" during the sequence of magazine covers at the beginning.
When Andie and Ben go to see Sleepless in Seattle (1993), according to the commentary, Kate ad-libbed 2 quotes: "I've always wanted a man like Tom Hanks" and "You can't watch Meg Ryan for 2 hours and not be thinking about another girl."
The film marks the acting reunion of Adam Goldberg and Matthew McConaughey who had last appeared together 10 years earlier in the iconic Dazed and Confused (1993).
At the party towards the end, two songs are played in the background that appear in Audrey Hepburn's films; one from Sabrina (1954) (Sabrina theme) and one song from Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961) - "Moon River".
The name, style and content of Composure Magazine all make it a dead ringer for Cosmopolitan Magazine.
The dress Andie wears to the Warren Advertising gala was designed around the 84-carat yellow diamond pendant which she wears at the gala. It was designed by fashion designer Dina Bar-El, not the film's costume designer Karen Patch.
Lana's dress at the Warren Advertising gala is by Chanel, and her diamond tiara is real.
The motorcycle used by Matthew McConaughey is a Triumph Bonneville.
The filmmakers used a loft in SoHo New York City, NY for Ben's apartment.
The Conde Nast office building was used for the Composure Magazine office building.
When Ben is shown the article that Andie wrote, the style and format changes. When the article is first seen, it is completely formatted in blue. When we see it from Ben's point of view, the style changes, with a broken love heart taking up the majority of the page. The font also changes.
Gwyneth Paltrow was originally going to star.
Ben's tuxedo at the Warren Advertising gala was custom-made by Brioni.
The basketball footage features the Sacramento Kings and the New York Knicks.
The Alexander Hamilton U.S. Customs House, in the financial district of New York City, NY was used for the Astor Museum of Art, where the Warren Advertising Agency hosts a gala in honor of the DeLauers.
