Kate Hudson’s parents were Bill Hudson and Goldie Hawn, but she was raised by step-father Kurt Russell.
“I’m not worried about my weight. If the audience is worried about my weight, I’m not doing my job as an actor. Because you’re not perfectly skinny you’re not thought to be as appealing which I think is false. Besides, who wants to be perfect? It’s so ugly.”
Kate’s first negative experience with the paparazzi occurred when she was three. Kurt took the family out to dinner for Goldie’s birthday, and as they were exiting the back of the Morroccan restaurant to avoid the crowd of cameras out front, ten people were waiting in the back, and scared her terribly. Kate ran screaming to the car, not knowing what the people wanted from them.
“When I was little, I had such a crush on Kiefer Sutherland. I had a Lost Boys poster on my wall. I met him once when I was at a hamburger joint with my dad. I don’t know if Kiefer remembers. I should never be talking about this.”
Kate Hudson never received special treatment on her parent’s movie sets, instead of being spoiled, she opted to help in the make-up trailer, costume department, and with the film crew, running errands.
