Early life

Hudson was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, an actor, comedian, and musician. [1] Her parents divorced when she was 18 months old and she and her older brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised in Snowmass, Colorado, and Pacific Palisades, California, by her mother and her mother's longtime boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell. [4] Hudson's ancestry is Italian (from her paternal grandmother), Hungarian Jewish (from her maternal grandmother), [5] [6] [7] and the remainder a mix of English and some German. [8] [9] Hudson was raised Jewish; [10] [11] like her mother, she also practices Buddhism. [12]

Hudson has stated that her biological father "doesn't know me from a hole in the wall", and she considers Russell her father. [13] Hudson has described her mother as "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". [14] She has four half-siblings: Emily and Zachary Hudson, from her biological father's later marriage to actress Cindy Williams; Lalania Hudson, from his relationship with another woman; [15] and Wyatt Russell, from her mother's relationship with Kurt Russell.

In 1997, she graduated from Crossroads, a college preparatory school in Santa Monica. She was accepted to New York University, but chose to pursue an acting career instead of an undergraduate degree. [4]


Beginnings and Almost Famous (1996–2001)

At age 11, Hudson performed on stage at the Santa Monica Playhouse. [16] She made her film debut in the dramedy Desert Blue (1998), and subsequently appeared in the romantic comedy 200 Cigarettes (1999). She took on the roles of a college student in the psychological thriller Gossip , the lesbian daughter of the titular character in the dramedy Dr. T & the Women and one of the leading roles in the romantic comedy About Adam , all of which were released throughout 2000. [16]

Her breakthrough came with the role of a veteran groupie in Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical dramedy Almost Famous (2000). She "hung in and had turned down leads in other movies just to play the part" and soon obtained it "because of her loyalty", according to Crowe. [16] For her performance, she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. [4] Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade, "best-of" list, saying, "This power ballad of a movie also happens to be Crowe's greatest (and most personal) film thanks to the golden gods of Stillwater and their biggest fan, Kate Hudson's incomparable Penny Lane." [17] She worked hard in avoiding association with her well-known parents, as she did not want to be perceived as someone who "rode on somebody's coattails". [4]

Commercial success (2002–2009)

In 2002, Hudson appeared in the remake of the historical romance The Four Feathers , as the fiancée of a young British officer (played by Heath Ledger). The film was panned by critics and had a lukewarm box office response. [18] In her next film, the romantic comedy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003), Hudson starred with Matthew McConaughey, as a writer for a women's magazine who starts dating a guy and eventually drives him away using only the "classic mistakes women make" in relationships. The film was a box office success, grossing over US$100 million upon its release. She also starred opposite Naomi Watts in the Merchant-Ivory film Le Divorce (2003), portraying a woman who, with her sister, dispute the ownership of a painting by Georges de La Tour with the family of her former brother-in-law. Entertainment Weekly gave the film a "C" rating and wrote: "I'm disappointed to report that Hudson and Watts have no chemistry as sisters". [19]

Her next romantic comedies, Alex & Emma (2003), in which she played a stubborn stenographer, and Raising Helen (2004), taking on the role of a young woman who becomes the guardian of her deceased sister's children, were released to varying degrees of success. In 2005, Hudson starred in the supernatural thriller The Skeleton Key , as a young hospice nurse who acquires a job at a New Orleans plantation home, and becomes entangled in a supernatural mystery involving the house. In its review, The Washington Post, describing her, wrote: "Hudson, who dials back her native, Goldie-given charm here to give Caroline a no-nonsense brusqueness, manages to convincingly convey a fearless bullheadedness rather than less sympathetic naivete". [20] The film was a box office hit, grossing over US$91.9 million worldwide ($47.9 million in North America). [21] Her next film, the comedy You, Me and Dupree , in which she appeared with Owen Wilson and Matt Dillon as one half of a couple who allows an unemployed friend to move in, grossed US$21.5 million on its opening weekend of July 14, 2006. [22] It eventually made US$130.4 million worldwide. [23]

In 2007, Hudson directed the short film Cutlass , one of Glamour magazine's "Reel Moments" based on readers' personal essays, which starred Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase and Kristen Stewart. [24] In the romantic comedy Fool's Gold (2008), her second film with Matthew McConaughey, Hudson took on the role a divorced woman who returns with her former husband while searching for a lost treasure. She was certified in scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef for the underwater scenes. The film made US$111.2 million worldwide. [25] In My Best Friend's Girl , another romantic comedy released in 2008, Hudson played the colleague of an amiable guy (Jason Biggs). Despite negative reviews, it was a moderate commercial success. [26]

Hudson starred in Bride Wars (2009), [27] alongside Anne Hathaway, playing two best friends who become rivals after their weddings are scheduled on the same day. The film was named among the 10 worst chick flicks of all time by Time in 2010, [28] but was successful financially, grossing US$114.6 million globally. [29] Her next film was the musical Nine , directed by Rob Marshall, in which she played a Vogue fashion journalist, alongside Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, and Judi Dench. The film was acclaimed by critics and Hudson garnered praise for her dancing skills, showcased in a 1960s-inspired original piece called "Cinema Italiano", which was written specifically for her character. [30]

Independent films and Glee (2010–present)

Hudson starred with Casey Affleck and Jessica Alba, as the wife of a West Texas serial killer, in the film adaptation The Killer Inside Me , which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

In is review for the latter, Detroit News remarked: "Kate Hudson looks exhausted, as if she is as tired of wading through another one of her feckless duds as we are of watching them". [31] While A Little Bit of Heaven found a limited release in theaters, Something Borrowed was a moderate commercial success. [32]

In 2012, Hudson was cast on the Fox teen comedy series Glee , in the recurring role of Cassandra July, a dance teacher at the fictitious New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts.

In 2014, she starred in the comedy Wish I Was Here , as the wife of a struggling actor, and the thriller Good People , as one half of a couple who fall into severe debt while renovating their family's home. The aforementioned films received a limited release and mixed reviews from critics. [36] [37] [38] [39] In Rock the Kasbah (2015), Hudson played a top-hatted hooker with a heart of gold who befriends a has-been actor manager (Bill Murray) in Afghanistan. Despite a US$15 million budget, the film only made US$3 million at the North American box office. [40]

Hudson voiced a crazy ribbon-dancing panda in the DreamWorks Animation film Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016), [41] which grossed US$521.1 million globally, [42] and became her most widely seen film. [41] She starred as a woman married to an Indian man and the sister of a lesbian woman, both of which had not told their conservative parents, in the romantic comedy Mother's Day (2016), directed by Garry Marshall and opposite Julia Roberts, Timothy Olyphant, and Jason Sudeikis. [43] The film was panned by critics and a moderate commercial success. [44] She next played the wife of a chief electronics technician (Mark Wahlberg) in the drama Deepwater Horizon , based on the Deepwater Horizon explosion. [45] [46] While critical response was positive, the film was only slightly profitable, making US$121.8 million on a budget of around US$110 million. [47]
