We know you’ve heard the expression ‘once a player, always a player’, Kate. So why would you even dream of giving your digits to perpetual ladies man Gerard Butler?
While we’re speaking in clichés today, Kate Hudson, we have another one for you. Maybe you’ve heard the phrase ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.’ Well, when you fall for bad boys as frequently as you seem to, Kate – then you’re just a plain old fool!
We at HollywoodLife.com caught The Ugly Truth star Gerard Butler, 40, checking out your 30-year-old booty at the Golden Globes Jan. 17, but we never thought you’d reciprocate his lustful feelings – especially after getting dissed (and so recently, too) by Yankee player Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez, as well as former flame Owen Wilson.
But we’re hearing now that you actually gave Gerard your phone number at the Globes, via US Weekly. What? Are you nuts? Do you actually like when a man talks to your – ahem – globes, and not into your face? Did you even know that Gerard made out with Jennifer Aniston later that same night?
Why would you act this way?
Dr. Carole Lieberman, author of Bad Boys: Why We Love Them, How to Live With Them, When to Leave Them says that Kate’s bad taste comes from a fear of commitment.. “She picks men who are players so she can avoid the intimacy of a long-term relationship,” says the doc, who adds, “When she was with Owen Wilson, he wanted something permanent and that drove her away. He was a good boy. Good in a sense that he would have wanted to be with her forever and that was too scary for her.”
But psychotherapist Rhonda Findling has a different opinion. “Kate finds seductive, charismatic men more exciting and desirable,” says the author of Don’t Call That Man! A Survival Guide to Letting Go. “She likes the challenge of men who are unavailable – like A-Rod and Gerard – men who are hard to pin down. Image and looks is more important to her than character and reliability. She is more into what turns her on that what the guy is thinking.”
So, to sum up, stop being afraid of love, Kate. We’re going to end the way we started: with a cliché: it is better to have love and lost then never loved at all. Don’t you think?
