Kate Hudson Bio

Kate Hudson has recently been delighting TV watchers as the newest addition to the cast of Glee, but long before hitting the small screen she established herself as movie star in films like Almost Famous and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Find out more about her in her Kidzworld Bio.

Famous Family

Kate Hudson was born into an already star-studded family as the daughter of Academy-Award winning actress Goldie Hawn and actor/comedian/musician Bill Hudson. Her parents were divorced early in her life and she and her brother Oliver (who is also an actor) were raised by her mother and her stepfather, blockbuster action star Kurt Russell. Kate and her brother are of Italian, English and Hungarian Jewish descent and were raised in the Jewish faith. Kate says of that her mother is "the woman that I've learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to"

Almost Famous

Although Kate was bright in school and was accepted to New York University, she knew she wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps and work in the acting world, so she put off college and her major breakthrough was in Cameron Crowe’s semi-autobiographical movie Almost Famous as ‘70s muse/groupie Penny Lane. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards for her performance as well as winning a Golden Globe. She has said to the press that she never wanted her success associated with her famous parents and worked hard at her craft. She followed up this success with the historical blockbuster The Four Feathers and the romantic comedy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.

Musical Mama

Hollywood wasn’t the only focus in Kate’s life, she also married Chris Robinson, the lead singer for The Black Crowes in 2006 and gave birth to her son Ryder in 2004. By 2006 the couple had split up, but much like her Almost Famous character Kate seems to have thing for boys in bands and started seeing Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy, they married and have a son together, Bingham Hawn Bellamy. Further stretching her interest in music, she signed on to play the volatile New York dance instructor Cassandra July in season four of Glee!

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
