Kate Hudson Biography
Kate is the daughter of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson. She and her three brothers
(one older, two younger) who were raised, however, by Goldie and her longtime
beau, Kurt Russell. Kate refers to Kurt as "my dad," but don't get her wrong;
she doesn't harbor ill feelings toward her biological father. "The thing about
Bill, my other dad, is that he wasn't really in our lives very much. I didn't
know him really well. I didn't understand it. My brother didn't understand
it. He was sort of in and out of our lives."
With actors surrounding her throughout her early life, one might guess Kate
became an actor before she was done weaning. But, acting came a bit later.
"I always knew I wanted to do it," Kate says, but it wasn't until Kurt encouraged
her to audition for Escape from L.A. that Kate took her first steps. The first
audition wasn't a successful one, but undeterred, Kate looked at other roles.
Her professional debut came in the hit series Party of Five, but her character
was only scripted for one episode. Her big break, however, came in the 1999
vehicle 200 Cigarettes, which costarred a slew of young Hollywood stars (Christina
Ricci, Paul Rudd, Courtney Love, Ben Affleck, etc.). She played the virgin
girlfriend of Jay Mohr.
From there it was was onwards and upwards. She had a few other roles, most
notably in the Joshua Jackson film Gossip. But, it was Almost Famous, the
long awaited Cameron Crowe follow-up to Jerry Maguire, that launched her career
into the forefront of Hollywood. The film has received rave reviews and moderate
What's she up to now? Looking for a house. She still lives with her folks!
"I do. I actually do. I'm in the process of finding a house, but I can't find
one. I'm waiting for the perfect house. I want a garden; boy, do I want a
garden. I need to be able to garden when I'm in my weird funky meditation
kind of mood. Sitting out and having a coffee and a smoke in my garden. That's
what I need."
