For those of us who have Matthew McConaughey on our celebrity crush short list, Kate Hudson kind of just squashed the dream. While chatting with pal Gwyneth Paltrow on the October 13th episode of the The Goop Podcast, Hudson admitted that her handful of kisses with McConaughey in 2008's Fool's Gold were some of the worst on-screen kisses she's ever had.

Paltrow initially wanted to know who provided Hudson with the best on-screen kiss, however, Hudson said, "I feel like I kind of haven't had the best kissers. I feel like I should have had better ones."

She then specifically threw Matthew McConaughey under the bus.

"The thing is, every time I kiss McConaughey, it's like there's just something happening and there's like snot or wind," Hudson told Paltrow before laughing. "Like when we were kissing in the end of Fool's Gold, we're like in the ocean, we like had the plane crash. He just had snot all over his face."

Paltrow asked if McConaughey, who also starred alongside Hudson in 2003's How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, has "brother energy." "Like with Robert [Downey Jr.], like when I kissed him and I was like, 'You've got to be kidding me,'" Paltrow joked. "This is literally like kissing my brother."

Hudson said no, although "it can be a little sibling-y at times."

Before signing off, Hudson rounded back to the starter question and credited her Almost Famous costar Billy Crudup for having the most skill when it came to kissing. "Billy was good. That was good," Hudson said, adding "but you didn't see it, cause they cut it out."

Poor, Matthew and his snot-covered face. He's still on our short list, though we'll be sure to keep tissues on our person at all times...just in case.
