When Hudson isn’t flying across the globe to promote her latest film, calling the shots at Fabletics, or chatting up a storm on Snapchat, Hudson turns to Pilates to keep fit and centered. “I was 19 when I discovered Pilates, and I’m still doing it. It’s the workout my body really responds to. It’s all about alignment, elongating your spine, and strengthening your core. It makes me feel my strongest,” she continued. “Some people need structure and a regimen, but I’m not a planner. When I exercise, I need to connect to myself and see how I’m feeling at the moment, because my mood is constantly changing.”
After landing her big break in “Almost Famous”; at the age of 20, the actress has had 17 years and the best trainers in the business to perfect her Hollywood frame. But as she reveals, much of her best advice comes from her mother, Hollywood icon and fellow bombshell, Goldie Hawn. “My mom has always been healthy, but she’s not a health nut. I’m the same way,”; she explains. “I absolutely believe in enjoying my food, especially when I travel. I don’t eat a lot of meat when I’m home, but I can’t be in Germany and not eat the bratwurst. I just love it so much.”
