Ginnifer Goodwin Talks Body Image, Fashion Interventions and Smelling Kate Hudson

Ginnifer Goodwin looks chic on the cover of InStyle's November issue. Inside the mag she talks about the famous faces she gets mistaken for, filming Something Borrowed with Kate Hudson, her body image and much more, as well as posing for a fab photoshoot. Here are some excerpts from her interview:

  • On her body image: "I’ve never felt that pressure [to be skinny]. The only place I’ve seen it is when I’ve read terrible things about myself, which is why I don’t. . .Ohmygosh, Heineken and googling are not a healthy combination. Press-wise, everything has to be taken with a grain of salt, but other than reading things [about her body] from people who are looking to be nasty, I’ve never felt that from the industry itself.”
  • On getting recognised: “I get mistaken for other actresses with short hair, which cracks me up. Actresses I look nothing like, but actresses who at some point had short hair. Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of Carey Mulligan or Maggie Gyllenhaal

  • On filming with Kate Hudson: "We were in New York in the summer, so Kate and I would smell each other daily to make sure we were going to be bearable to the rest of the crew”
  • On fashion: "I really like exploring the fashion world. It’s an art and it inspires me, but for the most part, I would say that red-carpet events are a big pain in the ass! They take endless fittings and an entire day of hair and make-up and nails. But, my style has evolved a lot. When I first started out, there were fashion interventions thrown for me. . . Oh, yeah! One night I walked into the Four Seasons during Oscar weekend and was in blue ‘mom’ jeans, a striped sweatshirt that was too small for me, Uggs and a Sixties cap of my mom’s with holes and pompoms on it. I wasn’t trying to be quirky, I was just straight out of theatre school and didn’t know how to dress. And I was pulled to one side by a friend, who said: ‘You can’t be coming in here on Oscar weekend and running into potential employers looking like a bum’”
