Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey have known each other for many years. After working on the two films together, they have maintained a strong bond however it doesn’t mean that they have to keep up with everything.

Back in 2008, the duo appeared together in Fool’s Gold in which the duo had to film some love scenes. While the scenes were not much of a problem for the duo, the former was unwilling to continue filming the scenes due to the latter’s natural smell.

“Kate Hudson can’t stand it. She always brings a salt rock, which is some natural deodorant, and says, ‘Would you please put this on?'”

Hudson remained persistent on McConaughey’s smell and even forced him to use some natural products that she brought to get rid of his smell.
