Hollywood beauty Kate Hudson has resumed her smoking habit to help her lose the 27.21 kilograms (60 pounds) she gained during her pregnancy.

The Almost Famous actress, 25, is depending on cigarettes to drop down to her original dress size for film SKELETON SKY - after the arrival of her baby son RYDER RUSSELL ROBINSON in January (04).

A source says, "She quit smoking when she was pregnant but she's started again to help her lose weight.

"She's breast-feeding, so it's really not ideal."
