In the tiresome age of reboots and remakes, we’re genuinely excited for this one. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days’ reboot is already getting dream-casting and theories from fans. In the late ’90s and early 2000s, the romantic comedy genre was at its full powers. It was like the second coming of the ’80s with hits just coming out every week. Now, one of our favs is getting the reboot treatment with a series date already clinched.
The original film, released in 2003 starred Kate Hudson as Andie Anderson, a young woman working at a magazine and writing a column on how she is able to get a guy to dump her in ten days – hence the title. But the man she has set her sights on, Ben Berry (Matthew McConaughey), is trying to make Andie fall in love with him in the same amount of time. Naturally, tomfoolery ensues and it full of laughs and love. The series will stay within that same narrative, as the synopsis details: “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days follows a glib young online columnist and an oversexed advertising executive who both need to prove, once and for all, they’re capable of being monogamous. They soon discover, however, keeping a relationship is harder than Andie Anderson made it look!”
While the original 2003 film was in the traditional romantic comedy form, as a light film with some memorable quips and scenes, the latest iteration will be a series featured on the short-form streaming service Quibi. But there’s also a catch. Quibi is designed for audiences to watch content right from their smartphone. With no details on how many episodes there will be, fans are fairly in the dark. But that hasn’t stopped them from theorizing. Just take a look at the social media response to lead writer, Gary Branum:
Gary Branum, who will lead the writing for the series adaptation, has previously worked on shows the likes of The Mindy Project, Billy on the Street, and Awkward. Fans can rest assured that the series will be in good hands. Some fans within the lengthy Twitter thread were even dream-casting a same-sex couple to be featured in the lead roles, with names Dan Levy (Schitt’s Creek) and Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) being thrown around in Branum’s mentions. Regardless, we have all the confidence that this adaptation will be just as fun and awkward as the original.
Use Rosé Bottles as Dumbbells
Hudson is a big proponent of finding a way to workout wherever you are. When she was away from a gym in Greece, the actress and her personal trailer, Nicole Stuart, picked up two bottles of rosé and used them as dumbbells. Hudson shared the routine in an Instagram video where she can be seen lifting the wine bottles over her head and using them for bicep curls. Though she was likely joking (wine bottles weigh around 2 pounds), Hudson shared a great lesson on how exercise doesn't have to be stiff and serious.
Up Your Pilates Game
Tired of her usual on-the-ground workouts, Hudson upped her Pilates game by using bars and straps. The next-level workout, dubbed Power Pilates, uses apparatuses like Hudson to intensify exercises. In an Instagram post sharing her go-to butt workout, Hudson can be seen holding on to two metal bars with her legs cradled in a harness as she arches her back and tones some serious muscles.
Put a Stripper Pole in Your Living Room
It's hard to leave the comfort of your home for the gym. Knowing this, Hudson installed a stripper pole smack-dab in her living room for some serious body-busting workouts. In a video, the actress can be seen doing some impressive twirls and tricks on the pole while working out her whole body.
Try a Booty Belt
When it comes to tightening your behind, Kudson swears by only one accessory: a Booty Belt. According to Booty Belt's website, the tool consists of an adjustable Velcro with latex bands that stretch to three times their regular length. Along with promising an intense butt workout that'll lift and round the gluteus, Booty Belt also claims that the tool works out the abs and thigh regions.
Choreograph a Dance Routine
Hudson, who is currently working on a film with Sia and "Dance Moms" star, Maddie Ziegler, is no stranger to ditching her regimented workout routine for a dance solo. In an Instagram video with self-proclaimed "fitness artist," Nicole Winhoffer, the two can be seen working out sweat in a girl group-worthy dance number.
Hike in the Rain
Earlier this year, Nicole Richie shared an Instagram video of Hudson and her hiking in the rain. Though hiking isn't the most unusual fitness activity out there, the two looked super-pleased to walk miles on a hill in the rain, without any kind of covering. It just goes to show that, for Hudson, rain or shine, workouts must go on.
