A rendering of Alex Rodriguez as a centaur gave Kate Hudson a case of the giggles.

When an MTV News reporter showed the actress a mock-up of her Yankees boyfriend as half-man, half-horse, the actress blushed and laughed -- but refused to confirm or deny Us Weekly's reports that such a painting exists in Rodriguez's bedroom.

"What is that?" she said of the mythological image "That's horrible."

When the reporter asked Hudson, 30, to clarify the story, she deflected. "That is the craziest thing anyone has ever asked me," she said.

"I don't indulge in those types of stories," she continued quietly, "As humorous as you might think they are."

A former fling of Rodriguez recently insisted to Us Weekly that Rodriguez actually had two centaur paintings created with his likeness. "He was so vain . . . It was ridiculous," the ex told Us.
