Kate Hudson was expected to be on the guest list for Britney Spears’ wedding to Sam Asghari, according to Elle Australia. Paris Hilton claimed the glamorous day was an “Icons Only” event, so maybe Hudson didn’t make the A-list cut — or (most likely) she was in post-production for “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery,” as referenced on IMDb. Either way, she wasn’t there, however, it seems Spears and Hudson are most definitely still friends today.
In fact, just two months before her wedding, Spears gushed about Hudson, and their mutual pal, Drew Barrymore, in an Instagram post. “I’ve met 1000s of celebrities in the business … but I have to say the 2 people where I literally went speechless were [Kate Hudson] and [Drew Barrymore],” Spears wrote, via Yahoo!. “They are by far the 2 most beautiful people I have ever seen in my life !!! Like shocking !!!”
Spears admitted to plucking up the courage to speak to Hudson when they met but then “ran away immediately.” However, she was speechless after setting eyes upon Barrymore. Britney confessed that she found it difficult to live up to the often fake beauty standards that social media sets. She further shared that the negative reaction she’d received recently from a bunch of strangers that she smiled at made her “feel stupid” and want to disconnect from the world. Hudson was right there to bolster her buddy’s confidence, though, with a touching and heartfelt message.
