KATE HUDSON, who’s always been your typical fabulous California blonde girl has turned herself to a frumpy brunette for her new movie, “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”. The new mom dyed her hair an unbecoming shade of black and wore equally unbecoming shapeless clothing to play Erica, an American woman who becomes involved with a Pakistani Princeton graduate in the wake of the September 11 Twin Tower bombings.
Quite frankly, celebrity news is relieved that Kate‘s wide, contagious grin remains intact, but we’re stymied about her decision to play this (literally) dark role that seems to leave her celebrity fashion and grooming suspect.
Still, it does make quite a change from the ditzy roles Kate usually plays, and with her involvement in “The Reluctant Fundamentalist”, she may be gunning for an Oscar-winning performance. The closest she’s come is an Academy Award nomination for playing a groupie following a band in “Almost Famous”.
“The Reluctant Fundamentalist” is based on an international New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by Mohsin Hamid. The movie also stars Kiefer Sutherland, Rizwan Ahmed, and Liev Schrieber.
