Profile Bio Text
Kate Garry Hudson is an American film actress. She came to prominence in 2001 after receiving an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe for her role in the drama Almost Famous, and has since established herself as a Hollywood lead actress, starring in several films, including How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, The Skeleton Key, You, Me and Dupree, Fool`s Gold, and Bride Wars.
Hudson was born in Los Angeles, the daughter of Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, an actor, comedian, and musician. Hudson`s parents divorced eighteen months after her birth; she and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised in Colorado by her mother and her mother`s long-time boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell. Hudson has stated that her biological father "doesn`t know me from a hole in the wall", and that she considers Kurt Russell to be her father. 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". She has three half-siblings, Emily and Zachary Hudson, from her biological father`s subsequent marriage to actress Cindy Williams, and Wyatt, from her mother`s relationship with Kurt Russell. Hudson is of English, Italian, and Ashkenazi Jewish descent, and was raised in her maternal grandmother`s Jewish religion; her family also practiced Buddhism. Hudson graduated from Crossroads, a performing school in Santa Monica, in 1997.
Hudson`s breakthrough role was as Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe`s Almost Famous (2000), for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress As a Groupie in Almost Famous and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. She had previously appeared in the lesser-known films Gossip, a teenage drama, and 200 Cigarettes, a New Year`s-set comedy with a large cast of actors. Regarding her early career and success, Hudson has noted that she is a "hard worker", and did not want to be associated with her well-known parents, wishing to avoid the perception that she "rode on somebody`s coattails".
In the 2002 Hudson starred in remake of the historical romance The Four Feathers, a film which was not well received by critics or audiences. Her next film, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, a romantic comedy, became a big success at the box office, grossing over $100 million after its February 2003 release. Hudson subsequently appeared in several romantic comedies, including Alex and Emma and Raising Helen; the films met with varying degrees of success.
Hudson headlined a thriller called The Skeleton Key in 2005. The film, which had a production budget of $43 million, enjoyed box office success, grossing over $91.9 million worldwide ($47.9 million in North America). Her later film, a comedy titled You, Me and Dupree and co-starring Owen Wilson and Matt Dillon, grossed $21.5 million on its opening weekend of July 14, 2006.
In 2000, Hudson married Chris Robinson, the frontman for The Black Crowes. They married on New Year`s Eve in Aspen, Colorado. Hudson gave birth to their son, Ryder Russell Robinson, on January 7, 2004. The couple lived in a house that was once owned by director James Whale and traveled together during Hudson`s film shoots or Robinson`s music tours. On August 14, 2006, Hudson`s publicist announced that Hudson and Robinson had separated. Rumors swirled that the reason was Hudson`s affair with Owen Wilson on the set of You, Me and Dupree. On November 18, 2006, Robinson filed divorce papers, citing "irreconcilable differences". The divorce was finalized on October 22, 2007.
After she and Robinson separated, Hudson publicly dated Owen Wilson, her You, Me and Dupree co-star. However, the two broke up in May 2007. Kate Hudson also dated in 2007 actor Dax Shepard who was on MTV`s Punk`d fame.
And many others.
