Here's the truth about Kate Hudson: the actress and Fabletics co-founder is just as down-to-earth and fit in person as she appears on screen. Known for having some of the best abs in Hollywood, the star told TODAY Food that she's still learning her limits when it comes to snacking, even when it's a seemingly healthy food: "Whenever I have almonds, I always end up eating way too many nuts," Hudson admits.
