Kate Hudson Tells Her Mom Goldie Hawn ‘You’re My Everything’ And Celebrates Her Life
Nov 23, 2022 by apost team
Actress Kate Hudson is perhaps best known for her roles as the enigmatic Penny Lane in "Almost Famous" and stubborn Andie Anderson in "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." However, before experiencing commercial success, Hudson was already a recognizable face. As the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson – who was actually raised by action figure actor-turned-mom's-boyfriend Kurt Russell – she grew up in the relative limelight. Hudson would always draw comparisons to her star-studded parents, even though she crafted her own path through Hollywood.
Hudson made her film debut in 1998 with the drama "Desert Blue," followed by plenty of supporting roles in the following years. It wasn't long before she began landing roles that helped make her the leading actress she is today, including films such as "You, Me and Dupree," "Fool's Gold," and "Bride Wars." It's clear that Hudson has a knack for comedy, especially romantic comedies, as she is hilariously charming and witty.
While the mentions of her parents still come, Hudson remains unoffended. She often mentions her mother, in particular, as a source of inspiration and strength. Hudson also speaks fondly of Russell, whom she considers to be her father. The three, along with siblings and fellow actors Oliver Hudson and Wyatt Russell, form one of Hollywood's most beloved families.
Hudson has never been shy about sharing her adoration for her family, especially during momentous occasions. In November 2022, Hudson went to Instagram to share a heartfelt tribute to her mother, celebrating who Hawn is not just as an actress but as a wonderful person.
Hudson is clearly inspired by her famous mom, Hawn. In March 2022, in conjunction with Stuart Weitzman's "Live Every Moment" campaign in which she appeared with Hawn, Hudson said in a statement, as reported by Us Weekly:
"My mom has always been an inspiration to me and, in so many ways, the foundation for my values. There's no doubt that I inherited her love for life and all of its experiences big and small."
Hudson's children are not only close to Hawn and Russell but to her brother Oliver's children as well. He sang praises for his mother and Russell to Us Weekly in April 2021, saying, "My parents are amazing grandparents. We're a very tight family. We all live very close to each other. … They're amazing people, amazing grandparents, amazing parents."
Their closeness now may boil down to the way they were raised, which Hudson described to CNBC in 2021 as such:
"My personality profile is perfect for an overachiever based on my family of origin. We grew up privileged, but our parents made sure we understood it. It was like, 'Hey kids, none of this belongs to you. You didn't earn any of this. You were just born into it.' So at a really young age, our parents were all about work ethic."
While Hudson has praised Hawn for the way she paved her own way in the entertainment business, she told E! News in September 2022 that she isn't planning on imitating Hawn's career.
"Contrary to how I guess it seems from the outside in, for me, our family is much more focused on emulating who we are as people," the actress said. "Emulating the good and maybe not necessarily wanting to carry on some of the challenges, like any child growing up in the world."
Hudson added to the outlet that even if she wanted to copy her mother, there would be no way to do it. "There's no emulating mama's career. She's an original. She's an icon. It's a different generation," Hudson gushed.
However, Hudson admitted there were other areas of Hawn's life that she was more than happy to try to mirror.
"I do really like to emulate the things she brought to her career and to us as kids, and how she balanced that out," Kate added to E! News. "I think that's important."
On Nov. 21, 2022, Hudson went to Instagram to share even more kind words about her amazing mom celebrating Hawn’s birthday and who she is as a person. She wrote in the caption:
“So lucky I get to celebrate my beautiful mother everyday BUT TODAY Nov 21 was the day she was born! I wonder if God knew what had been concocted in the stars to create this beaming light? I have a feeling it was by no accident that she shares this otherworldly lust for life and joyous spirit.”
Hudson shared that her mom has “challenged the toughest minds, stood tall for her worth, she blazed trails for us to walk a little easier through and cut a lot of those weeds that love to scratch at women’s ankles trying to get us to turn back.”
“My mothers life is a treasure trove of wisdom that I feel deeply honored to know intimately. Most importantly, she always wanted and continues to aspire to be the best mother and grandmother. And well…let’s just say, she’s winning at that 🏆☺️ HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAMA G! You’re my everything ❤️🎂❤️ @goldiehawn.”
