This is rich

You can be too thin?

LONDON — Actress Kate Hudson has accepted libel damages from a supermarket tabloid that claimed she was dangerously thin, her lawyer said Thursday.

Lawyer Simon Smith said the British edition of the National Enquirer had agreed to pay undisclosed damages and print an apology for an October 2005 article that claimed Hudson was "way too thin" and looked "like skin and bones."

The magazine's U.S.-based publisher, American Media Inc., apologized for "the deep distress and acute embarrassment" caused by the allegations, which it acknowledged were false.

...."The allegations that I sued over were blatantly false and I felt I had no choice but to set the record straight by challenging them in court," Hudson, 27, said in a statement.
