In Vogue’s February issue, Kate Bosworth addresses her much-publicized bouts with extreme weight loss.
“Whenever anything happens that’s very painful or stressful, we all lose weight—my mother, my aunt, my grandmother,” the 25-year-old actress told the fashion glossy. “I honestly thought something was wrong with me….I was concerned for my health and my fans, the public. I would have said, don’t look at this as the standard of some kind of beauty and health. [It was] a very dark time in my life.”
She also recounts the night she met her boyfriend, model-musician James Rousseau, at a Marc Jacobs after party. Ms. Bosworth was apparently surprised that he didn’t walk away from her; “I looked like a mess,” she said. But instead of leaving her in the dust, Mr. Rousseau confronted her and asked her if she was Kate Hudson. Embarrassing mix-ups notwithstanding, they left the shindig together and went to Maggie’s Pub for a round of beers and Bob Dylan tunes.
“He saw the potential,” she said of their first night together. “He wanted to fix me in a little way. And to be quite honest, he did. He was such a ray of light in my life.”
