Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey are getting nostalgic for the glory days of How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and honestly, we’re here for it.
Speaking of incredible movies, we spoke about the 2020 Oscar nominations on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…
In case you weren’t well-aware, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is one of the greatest rom-coms of all time. Starring the queen of romcoms herself, Kate Hudson, and Hollywood legend Matthew McConaughey, this film has aged like fine wine, aka beautifully. As a result, we like to celebrate it whenever we get the chance and as it turns out, we’re not alone.
Both Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey have taken to Instagram with throwbacks to How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and we’re rolling on the floor laughing because they can’t seem to get over the love fern. If you don’t know what the love fern is, or you can’t remember, do yourself a favour and watch this little refresher.
Earlier this year, Matthew McConaughey took to Instagram to share a still from the movie depicting Kate Hudson’s character (Andie Anderson) mad at McConaughey’s character for letting the love fern die. Hilariously, he captioned the photo “that damn fern.” After his post went viral, Kate Hudson reshared the image and responded to him in character, saying: “that damn fern…? That damn fern?!?! YOU LET IT DIE!” Honestly, this interaction is warming up our cold, cold hearts.
And if that weren’t enough, it looks like these two are at it again as they’ve both bickered about the fern on social media just recently. In celebration of “Take Your Houseplant For A Walk” day (side note: a very underrated day), Kate Hudson shared a video from the movie of her character walking the love fern down the street away from Benjamin Berry.
She captioned the photo, “Heard it was #TakeYourPlantForAWalkDay So, clearly I thought of one of my favourite co-stars… #TheLoveFern” How sweet.
After posting this, Matthew McConaughey was quick to comment back, saying “Hate to see you leave, but love to watch you go. #ThatDamnFern.” Only true fans of this movie will get this joke. We stan a hilarious king.
How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days is approaching its 18th anniversary and boy, oh boy, does that make us feel old. Will these two lovebirds ever stop bickering about the potted plant? We hope not, because we’re loving this nostalgia.
