For the Elle US November 2010 edition there are 3 cover stars.

Hilary Swank, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson appear in the magazine for the “Women In Hollywood” issue.

Photographed by Carter Smith, Kate looks stunning on cover wearing one of my favourite dresses from Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 collection which we’ve seen on Leighton Meester.

The magazine hits newstands on October 20, but here are some extracts from Kate’s interview.

On learning about parenting from her mom and dad: “My mom and dad had it figured out: They never worked at the same time, and they were very conscious of making anywhere we went feel like home. When you’re working, the hours are brutal, but when you’re not working, you have all the time in the world. That’s always a difficult balance.”

On the difficulty of finding good female roles: “They are — because in most male-driven vehicles, the female parts tend to be dispensable. I have faith that we can make female-driven films that are as interesting to men as they are to women.”

On filming Almost Famous: “One of my favorite experiences. One, because I love Cameron Crowe. And two, because it was just such a wonderful movie. The whole thing was overwhelming — in the best way.”

Which is your favourite cover?

I’m stuck between Hilary and Kate.
