Date From Hell

Kate Hudson was once asked about a certain rumored date from hell. "Actually," Hudson proudly declared, "I saved it from being a date from hell." How so? Having met the man in a bar and found him excruciatingly boring, Hudson simply said, "I'm sorry, I'm sure youre a really wonderful guy, but I have to go" -- and got up and left.

[Hudson's role as "Band Aide" Penny Lane in Almost Famous was originally intended for Sarah Polley. When Polley backed out to pursue another project, director Cameron Crowe nearly scrapped the film. Hudson, cast in a minor role (William's stewardess sister), begged for a chance to read for Penny. Crowe agreed, Hudson landed the role, and the film was declared by many to be the best of the year.]
