LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Kate Hudson stars in the romantic comedy "Something Borrowed," due out in U.S. movie theaters on Friday.

Based on author Emily Giffin's best-selling novel of the same name, the film is about two best friends (Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin) whose friendship is tested when one falls for the others' fiance.

In real-life, Hudson is expecting a child with musician Matthew Bellamy. (She already has a son, Ryder, 7, with ex-husband Chris Robinson.) The actress, 32, talked with Reuters about the film and her pregnancy.

Q: You've done quite a few romantic comedies including

"How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" and "Fool's Gold." How did this one come about?

A: "(Producers) Hilary Swank and Molly Smith acquired the book series (which also includes sequels "Something Blue" and "Baby Proof") and they came over and said, 'Please read them.' I was in mommy mode and the idea of working was not in my immediate future at that time (laughs). But then I started reading the books and the character of Darcy lent itself to such good comedy."

Q: What did you like about her?

A: "She's a little wild. She likes to have a good time. She's the person who gets drunk and stupid and doesn't realize -- or care -- how obnoxious she is. In the second book, Darcy has such a great turnaround and A-ha moment. I hope we get a chance to do the second one."   Continued...
