Actress Kate Hudson and NFL football player J.J. Watt never gave dating a shot.
It turns out the “date” the pair went on was not actually a date. “We actually just have the same agent,” Hudson told Entertainment Tonight. “We were at, like, a big dinner. It’s just what happens.”
In April, Hudson and Watt Snapchatted photos from an apparent dinner date. The pair also said they were on a date which led people to believe it was a thing. It was a big lie. They just sat next to each other at dinner and took some pictures.
“Apparently, the stars belong to the hottest person on the date,” Watt said in a Snapchat video in which he was using the star headband filter.
The Houston Texans player tweeted he was single days after his night with Hudson in LA.
Stop making stories out of non-stories. A bunch of guys made it to work today, not just me. I’m not retiring. I’m single. Anything else?

Watt stays in Houston for a good part of the year for football and Hudson lives in Los Angeles with her two children so the relationship would have been doomed from the start.
