The actress was featured in the October issue of Cosmo, and it turns out her spread inside the glossy has fans upset! Now that it's hit newsstands, Kate's questionnaire turned out to have one very controversial answer. Related: Kate Debuts Her Shaved Head! Answering the question of "the laziest thing I've ever done," the momma of two filled in: "Have a c-section!" Her oldest son Ryder was delivered via c-section, for those wondering. The 38-year-old's response has garnered a ton of backlash, like one user who slammed Kate, writing: Dear #KateHudson Having a C-Section is far from lazy, ok? pic.twitter.com/DcjmJbi6i0 — Mrs ™ (@SuchACoolChick) September 4, 2017 Meanwhile, comments flooded her Instagram: rachel_jade89: "@katehudson I don't know what sort of c section you had but the one I had was far from lazy! I had all plans to go natural and was 10cm dilated and pushing for hours until I had my baby come out via emergency c section. It was soo painful for weeks and I struggled to even lift my baby for days. I really hope your comment was a joke!" mommin_out_loud: "Yes, moms who have a c-section rather than let their child die during labor are super lazy. 🙄" hayleymllp: "@angelamarie1029 I feel very disappointed with @katehudson my daughter was delivered by emcs and I can assure everyone that was not me being lazy. It was surgeons saving her life!! I know she was talking of her own experience but it's insulting to those of us that have experienced it, as c-sections are often criticised." dreestarcic: "Although she says it was 'her laziest moment', I feel like her comment maybe misinterpreted as insensitive. It makes it seem as though she thinks all c-sections are lazy cause she felt hers was. That's why people are upset. Maybe ordering out instead of cooking, or hiring someone to clean cause you just didn't feel like it...those are lazy moments. I think people feel like she downplayed the reality of having a major abdominal surgery, whether emergency or planned. It's a serious risk we take to bring our babies into the world. And while she may feel it was lazy on her end, many women who look up to her feel like it's a slap in the face, joke or no joke. The problem is everyone is so damn sensitive about everthing people say, they take it as a personal attack, all the damn time. IT'S JUST SOMEONE'S OPINION. Doesn't make it true. You know your own truth." Kate may have been joking, or even totally serious, but it's clear it rubbed people the wrong way! Do U think she should apologize for it?? [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Brice’s collaboration with Mark Duplass continues with Creep 2 which The Orchard is releasing on all digital platforms on October 24. Creep 2 centers on Sara (Girls’ Desiree Akhavan), a video artist who attempts to form a bond with lonely men. After discovering an ad looking for “video work,” she heads to remote forest where she meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Duplass, reprising his role in the original). Agreeing to spend a day with him, Sara’s pursuit for an interesting story may lead to a tragic end. Duplass and Brice (who also was the lead in Creep), penned the script. “We are overjoyed to bring the next chapter of Creep into the world,” said Brice. “The fact that audiences have embraced the first film in such an unexpected way has been so heartening. We hope Creep 2 will bring a new level of fear, discomfort and joy to loyal fans and newcomers alike.” If you haven’t seen the original or are in need of a refresher course, here’s the trailer to Creep (the sequel’s trailer wasn’t available as of press time): Find Us On Facebook: Hollywood Outbreak Follow Us On Twitter: @Hollyoutbreak Posted by: Greg Srisavasdi.....»»

Demi Lovato Gives Herself Some Self Love After Revealing She Doesn"t Like Being Labeled As Bipolar

Demi Lovato is a lot more than her mental health issues. The A-lister made this point while chatting with Elvis Duran for a recent episode of iHeartRadio's Label Defiers podcast.

The Sorry Not Sorry singer [...] Demi Lovato is a lot more than her mental health issues. The A-lister made this point while chatting with Elvis Duran for a recent episode of iHeartRadio's Label Defiers podcast. Specifically, the former Disney darling expressed her frustrations with regularly being labeled as "bipolar." Related: Kanye Wants $10 Million For His Mental Breakdown! The Sorry Not Sorry singer explained: "I think when people refer to me as being bipolar, it's something that's true – I am bipolar – but I don't like people to use it as a label. It's something that I have, it's not who I am." Instead, the 24-year-old favors being called an "activist" as it is a far more encouraging label. Hmmm, inneresting point. In case you forgot, back in 2011, Demi entered a treatment program in order to get help for her substance abuse, eating disorder, and self harm problems. While in the mental health facility, Lovato was diagnosed as bipolar -- a diagnosis she's been very vocal about. On why she chose to become an advocate for mental health awareness and other causes, the industry vet added: "I think it's very important that people raise the importance of mental health because it's something that's so taboo to talk about... The more people know about it, the more people are going to be able to find solutions to what they're going through." Not to mention, following Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington's recent suicides, the Stone Cold artist feels it's particularly important to "speak up" these days. She continued: "It's a very unfortunate situation and I feel terrible for [Bennington's] friends and family, but I know that maybe this will raise the topic into conversation around mental illness and mental health and help somebody. It's important to speak up about the things you believe in, because your voice will be heard no matter what position you're in. I just happen to be in a position where more people would hear my voice than they would have 10-15 years ago, so I use my voice to do more than just sing." In addition to building the spirits of her fans, Demi is focused on maintaining her own health and happiness. On Tuesday, the hitmaker took to Instagram to give herself some love as she posted a fit AF pic (above). Alongside the snap of her toned abs, the former child star wrote: "I rarely post pics with my belly button showing because I'm normally insecure about showing my full stomach but I've been working really hard and thanks to @d.leith and his yummy food with @lockhartandleith I've been seeing progress so I thought I'd post this cause I'm feeling myself right now!! 😝💁🏻💪🏼 also can't forget the best gym in the world @unbreakableperformance and my train." Way to feel yourself, girl. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

The 40-year-old actress talked with musician Josh Ostrander on the July 31 episode of the podcast and she said she related to his feeling of “solitude.” “I play a character on Mom, I play a character in movies, but I also play a public character,” Anna said. “There’s definitely a loneliness and, like, an internal element to being a performer. I feel like I have to laugh.” “I play a public character,” she added. “I laugh loud sometimes — maybe too loud but it is a public character sometimes. Like, if I have a red carpet thing or whatever, which I’m never comfortable, but I’m always like, ‘I’m fine!’ And it never feels like me.” Anna said that she also doesn’t ever look back at photos of herself on the red carpet.

Jen Kirkman Sets The Record Straight On Those Louis C.K. Sexual Misconduct Rumors — See What She Had To Say HERE!

Jen Kirkman is setting the record straight. As you likely know, Louis C.K. has once again garnered negative attention for those long standing allegations that he exposes himself to female comics without consent. Totally lost??

As you likely know, Louis C.K. has once again garnered negative attention for those long standing allegations that he exposes himself to female comics without consent. Totally lost?? Let us backtrack. Related: Bill O'Reilly STILL Denies Ever Harassing Employees In 2012, the now deceased Gawker ran a blind item where a famed male comedian was accused of cornering female peers and masturbating in front of them. It was widely believed that the funny man in question was the 50-year-old industry vet. Three years later, Kirkman recorded a podcast where she brought up the alleged inappropriate behavior of an unnamed male jokester. At the time, Jen stated: "This guy didn't rape me, but he made a certain difficult decision to go on tour with him really hard... Because I knew if I did, I'd be getting more of the same weird treatment I'd been getting from him." Many believed that this was the stand-up expert's way of confirming the Louis rumors. These rumors were brought back to life after Kirkman's friend Tig Notaro said that C.K. needs to "handle" the gossip. Surprisingly, Jen appears to be siding with Louis this time around as she recently clarified her 2015 statement in The Village Voice. The New York Times bestseller noted: "I don't know why Tig is talking about this stuff... There are rumors out there that Louis takes his dick out at women. He has never done that to me. I never said he did, I never implied that he did. What I said was, when you hear rumors about someone, and they ask you to go on the road with them, this is what being a woman in comedy is like — imagine if there's always a chance of rain over your head but [with] men, there isn't. So you go, ‘Should I leave the house with an umbrella, or not?'" Huh. Not to mention, Jen hasn't spoken to Tig in months nor has she seen the second season of One Mississippi. In case you were unaware, season two of Notaro's show features a scene reminiscent of the C.K. allegations. Oof. As for Louis, he's pretty much avoided addressing the controversy altogether. Nonetheless, Jen believes her mentor to be innocent as she added: "Sometimes there's nothing there. I think this might be a case of there's nothing there. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, and if any women want to come forward and say what he's done, I'll totally back them, because I believe women. But I just don't know any." Whatever you say, girl. And it seems the Chelsea Lately alum regrets talking about the scandal on her podcast as she concluded: "I'm the one that opened it up by doing that dumb podcast, and I thought people would understand the nuance of what I was saying, and they didn't. So I brought it on myself. And then I deleted the podcast, not because Louis paid me off, but because it was causing so much attention." Fair enough. We're sure Louis appreciates the support!
