New song and dance routines weren’t the only things Kate Hudson had to learn on the Glee set.

The actress, 33, was taken out of her comfort zone as Cassandra July, Rachel Berry’s (Lea Michele) not-so-nice dance instructor.

“Being that mean for me, it’s pretty difficult,” Hudson told reporters on Wednesday at the Fox show’s season 4 premiere at Paramount Studios in L.A. “It was challenging to keep a straight face.”

Hudson’s character seems to have it in for Rachel, who acts as a reminder of the dreams she hasn’t already accomplished herself.
