And a couple of other alerts - what with the Nine theatrical release date changing, the previously announced world premiere in London on November 4th has been cancelled, and there is no word on a new date yet. As soon as I hear anything I'll let you know.
And there is a 7-page feature on Nine in the new December issue of UK Empire magazine, including interviews with all 7 women. I'll pick up a copy asap and make scans for us.
The soundtrack from the upcoming film adaptation of Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit's Tony-winning musical Nine will arrive in stores nationwide Dec. 22.
Geffen Records will release the soundtrack to the film that features three new songs penned by Yeston, including "Guarda la Luna" (for Sophia Loren), "Cinema Italiano" (for Kate Hudson) and "Take It All" (for Marion Cotillard).
Originally scheduled to arrive in theatres Nov. 25, "Nine" has been delayed until Dec. 18 in New York and Los Angeles, with nationwide release on Dec. 25.
Kate Hudson's romance with baseball star Alex Rodriguez is getting serious - she has scrapped her annual celebrity Halloween party so she can concentrate all her efforts on cheering her boyfriend on in the World Series.
The slugger will be stepping up to the plate at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday as his New York Yankees play the Philadelphia Phillies and Hudson would rather cheer her man on than hang out with stars.
A pal tells Life & Style magazine, "Kate looks forward to her Halloween party and always tries to outdo herself, but it wasn’t even a question to do it this year. As much as she would love to invite everyone to her house, Alex is much more important."
And Rodriguez needs all the support his team can get - the Yankees are down one game after losing to the Phillies in New York on Wednesday night. Game two is in New York tonight (29th).
October 30th, 2009 - Stars out for Yankees-Phillies World Series Game 1
Kate Hudson and Minka Kelly gave their boyfriends' World Series opener some sparkle.
Hudson was sitting next to her stepfather, Kurt Russell, star of cult classic "Escape from New York," to cheer on Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Kelly, of "Friday Night Lights," was in captain Derek Jeter's suite as New York and the Philadelphia Phillies played Game 1 on Wednesday (28th) night.
Alec Baldwin, Matthew McConaughey, NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon, former New York Rangers captain Mark Messier, ex-Homeland Security head Tom Ridge and movie directors Spike Lee and Steven Spielberg were also spotted in the high-priced seats near home plate for the Yankees first Series game in six years. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was in his front row seat next to the Yankees dugout along the first-base line.
Rather than making a new post for each recent article about Kate and A-Rod, here's a selection of the main stories & tidbits - this should cover most things!
Yankee Fans: Thank You, Kate Hudson!
Alex Rodriguez has been unstoppable on the baseball diamond this season -- and Yankee fans are thanking his golden girlfriend, Kate Hudson, for turning the team's luck around.
The slugger and the "Bride Wars" beauty became an item during the regular baseball season -- and Kate, 30, was soon a fixture at Yankee Stadium to cheer-on her man. On Friday night (Oct 9th), A-Rod slammed a home run, pulling in two runs for the Bronx bombers and tying the game. The Yankees finally won 4-3, giving them a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five series against the Minnesota Twins.
Alex's performance on the field has changed considerably since he began dating the actress. Last year, the baseball star fell into a slump as his marriage fell apart and he was rumored to be dating Material Girl Madonna.
When Hollywood musical production NINE, directed by Rob Marshall, will hit movie theaters this November, moviegoers will not only be dazzled by the acting, singing and dancing of its main characters, but also by the Swarovski crystals used in the costumes. The film's Academy Award-winning costume designer, Colleen Atwood, is collaborating with Swarovski on NINE to create a show-stopping spectacle that will display over 1 million CRYSTALLIZEDTM - Swarovski Elements to embellish the costumes of the all-star cast, which includes Hollywood actresses and actor Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren, Stacy Ferguson, and Daniel Day-Lewis.
Nadja Swarovski, Vice President of International Communication says, "Swarovski is thrilled to have collaborated with Colleen Atwood on the show-stopping costumes of NINE. It is an honour for the outstanding cast to be embellished with our crystal and Colleen's artistry as a costume designer is perfectly showcased in these sparkling creations."
Got some more great stuff for you today, Kate fans! Firstly, I've added a gorgeous new photoshoot picture - I'm not sure whether it was taken this year or last, but Kate looks pretty amazing in it! Please do not re-post this photo - just enjoy it here at KHH, thanks.
And a new Nine video was released online yesterday, this one being a 'Rehearsal Montage' featuring footage of all 7 women rehearsing their dance routines on set. It's a pretty good video, and gives you an idea of the scale of this movie. Watch it at here at Yahoo Movies.

Thanks to Mia, we have exclusive scans from the new November issue of US Vogue! As you can see, the feature is very limited with only the cast photoshoot picture and a couple of shots from the behind the scenes video, all of which we've seen before. It's still wonderful to see Kate and her Nine co-stars on this cover though! Thanks again to Mia for kindly contributing these scans to Kate Hudson Heaven.
These scans were contributed exclusively to Kate Hudson Heaven - please do not re-post or redistribute them elsewhere.
Here's another update packed with new stuff :D First up, I've added over 160 screencaps from the Vogue photoshoot 'behind the scenes' video - Kate and her co-stars all look gorgeous in this, and it looks like they had fun on the set of the shoot ... which makes it even more of a shame that the cover Vogue released is so bland and unnatural looking, in my opinion. I've also added new/more candids from October 9th, 11th and 12th - she looks fantastic in the October 9th set. And finally, thanks to Red Rose for contributing another 2 HQ stills from Nine! These are HQ replacements of pictures that we previously had in smaller versions.
I have some more new Nine stuff for you again! Firstly, I've replaced the Vogue cover with a HQ version, and added a HQ photoshoot picture of the female cast of Nine from the Vogue shoot. I haven't seen these pictures in HQ anywhere else, so enjoy them here at KHH, and here alone ;)
And there is also a new still from the movie - I believe that is Kate on the right-hand side of the photo, being showered in champagne by Daniel Day Lewis!
There have been a lot of updates in the last week, so make sure you scroll down and back through the pages (scroll down to '<< Previous 1 2 Next >>' below the updates here), as some of the updates have been pushed onto a second page. And it would be really great to see some comments on these updates ;)
What actress doesn't dream of reliving Fellini's magic? Here, a head-spinning lineup of A-list stars join forces in Rob Marshall's movie-musical Nine. Plum Sykes visits them on set. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz.
Shepperton Studios, London, on a bleak December day. Shrouded in a freezing fog, the lot seems faintly neglected, as though abandoned. The various buildingsprop shops, costume houseslook like little more than sheds. A car drops me off at a side door to a soundstage, where a harried but friendly publicist meets me.
Inside, it's as though a magician has waved his wand. Suddenly I am transported half a century back in time to the Italy of La Dolce Vita. To my left is an empty set-within-a-set of a Roman piazza, and to my right is a bustling re-creation of a 1960s movie studio. An intricate scaffolding of iron balconies and stairwells has been built in front of the corrugated walls of the soundstage. Nowhere, it turns out, could be more perfect for Rob Marshall to direct the song-and-dance numbers for Nine, his latest movie, because the bones of Shepperton have an uncanny resemblance to the Cinecittΰ of Fellini's 8½, the inspiration for Maury Yeston's 1982 Broadway musical Nine, on which this film is based.
The exciting new Kate stuff continues! Today we have the very first stills from Kate's upcoming movie The Killer Inside Me - Kate looks amazing in these pictures, and the movie looks like it's going to be very atmospheric and intense - can't wait! Thanks so much to Andrew at our forum for posting these.
I've also added a few new candids from October 7th, and a new set of Kate and A-Rod in Malibu late last month.
The Weinstein Co. has bumped its star-studded musical Nine to December, according to Brad Brevet at Rope Of Silicon. Instead of its previously announced release date of Nov. 29, Rob Marshall’s film starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Penιlope Cruz will now come out on Dec. 18 in New York and Los Angeles followed by a wider release on Christmas Day. This isn’t the biggest shock in the world; as it was, the Weinstein Co. was scheduled to open Nine and The Road on the same day. Now they’ll have two weeks between The Road and Tom Ford’s A Single Man (now set for Dec. 11). And I’m sure Marshall doesn’t mind having the extra time to tinker with his cut.
The flow of candids continues! I've added more photos from the Harper's Bazaar shoot on October 6th, and in these you can see a costume change (she looks amazing!) and Ryder has joined her in the shoot! He looks adorable wearing a little suit and carrying roses. It seems that the shoot continued the day after because I've seen, and added, more photos that were dated as October 7th. After the shoot on the 7th Kate went to support her man, and photos of her watching the New York Yankees play have also been added.
Don't forget to scroll down to see the new Vogue cover!
Please note: This is just gossip! I wouldn't normally post things like this these days because the constant rumours of pregnancy and weddings when she's dating someone is just so unreliable, boring and trashy. However, seeing as these stories are making a lot of news again, I decided to post one article to 'sum it all up'. Remember that nothing is official until we hear it from Kate, her family, or her official representatives.
Kate Hudson is set to marry Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez. The 'Fool's Gold' actress is delighted with the way her romance with the baseball star - who she has been dating since May - is progressing and friends are expecting the couple to announce their engagement in the near future.
A source said: "Kate is head over heels for Alex and he feels the same way. As long as things continue to be so great, they will get married. They are practically there already with the shared homes, the children and balancing work."
- The World Premiere of NINE will be held on November 4th in London. No word on whether Kate will attend, but as it's the world premiere you would expect/hope that most of the stars would be there.
- The NINE ladies will be seen on the November issue of Vogue (US)! This is what they were seen being photographed for on the beach in Malibu earlier this year. From an imdb.com message board:
The issue is due out on Oct 20. I don't know if it will actually show up any earlier than that. I think I can safely say that the cover shot features Kidman, Cotillard, Cruz, and Hudson, and I believe is from the earlier Leibovitz beach shoot. It's a beautiful image.
If you hear of any more NINE promotional events/appearances/alerts then please get in touch :)
October 7th, 2009 - Candids of Kate yesterday, new photoshoot + more
Kate was photographed wearing a wedding dress and carrying red roses for a photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar magazine in New York City yesterday. I've added a few photos to the Gallery, and hopefully more will turn up soon. I've also added a couple more photos to a photoshoot that Kate did with Anne Hathaway late last year to promote Bride Wars - these photos were contributed by Kelly, and are exclusive to KHH :) There are a few other new additions to the Gallery, including lots of international Bride Wars posters/covers so just click the Last Uploads link to see everything.
Kate graces the cover of two international magazines at the moment: the October issue of Spanish Cosmopolitan, and the November issue of Aussie magazine Madison. See previews of the covers below ... and if anyone can contribute scans of these magazines then please send me an email!
Hi fans! Today I've added a few random pictures, including a gorgeous old candid from last year and some photoshoot additions. There are also some new Nine stills ... that make me even more excited for the movie!! And a very big thank you goes to the ever-lovely Melissa for contributing scans from various US tabloids.
I am finally able to update again and so today I been catching up with all the recent photos of Kate. Kate looked amazing at the two Fashion's Night Out events last month! And don't miss the September 22nd candids of Kate with Kurt and Wyatt at a baseball game.
