Kate Hudson zings Scaramucci with ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ Instagram post

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is a memorable, turn-of-the-century rom-com starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey. This coincidence was not lost on Hudson, and so on Monday the Hollywood star posted a corresponding and timely meme.

Don’t remember the movie? Basically Hudson, portraying a journalist, researches a column with the same title. She aims to self-sabotage a relationship with playboy McConaughey. The twist? The Sacramento Kings make the NBA Finals.

Start the countdown now for a full-length feature about Scaramucci’s rise and fall.
