Kate Hudson has joked she stuck to a diet of just cucumber ahead of filming her bikini scenes in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

The actress, 43, appeared on Wednesday’s This Morning to promote the new Netflix film when she discussed the poolside scene where she dons an orange two-piece.

She told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that while the rest of the cast were indulging in alcoholic drinks like Aperol Spritzes on set, she abstained.

She said: ‘When we found out they were doing a second one [Knives Out], I was like gonna barrel Ryan Johnson’s door down, I was like ”I want in”.’

On filming she added: ‘We were really locked down together because of Covid. It was right at the peak of Delta so we couldn’t go anywhere. 

‘We’d rent out a bar, do murder mysteries and then have parties. That’s how we kept entertained.’

It comes after Kate talked about her experience filming Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and how the all-star cast enjoyed wild parties after being on set. 

Speaking on NBC’s Today, she said: ‘We had so much fun. It was at the height of Delta (the COVID-19 strain) and we were in Belgrade, Serbia so the producer was like ”you are not leaving this hotel.” 

‘Which is kind of like as nightmare in itself but they would rent the bar upstairs and we would just, you know, the circus got up there and we just started drinking. And when the circus starts drinking things get weird and we had a blast.’

The blonde bombshell also talked about her character in the film Birdie Jay and how their name has a special draw for her personally.

She said: ‘Well my dad calls me, my nickname has always been Birdie. Which is so fun, you know, Birdie is not a normal nickname so when I saw the character I was like “oh.”

‘And then on set it was fun because I never had that moment where people were calling me Birdie where it wasn’t my name you know. I just would respond without even double thinking about it twice.’

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is available to stream on Netflix now.
