Kate Hudson is an American actress who rose to fame after her breakthrough performance in the 2000 film ‘Almost Famous.’

The daughter of actress Goldie Hawn and singer Bill Hudson,  Kate and her brother, Oliver Hudson, were raised in Colorado by her mother and her mother’s long-time boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell. Even though her biological father made several efforts to connect with Kate and Oliver, she considers Russell as her father.

After appearing in a few low profile movies in the late ’90s, Hudson got her big break in 2000, starring in the Cameron Crowe-directed ‘Almost Famous’. Her breakthrough performance in the film won Hudson several awards including the 2001 Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination. The success of Hudson’s 2003 box office hit, ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,’ saw her take on several other romantic comedies like ‘Alex and Emma,’ ‘Raising Helen,’ and ‘My Best Friend’s Girl’ – all of which met with varying degrees of success. Hudson’s other notable films include the horror film ‘The Skeleton Key’ (2005) and the romantic/adventure film ‘Fool’s Gold’ (2008) starring opposite her ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ co-star Matthew McConaughey. In 2009, Hudson showcased her dancing skills in the Rob Marshall-directed musical ‘Nine’.

Despite her famous parents, Hudson insisted on making it on her own as professional actor, without capitalizing on the success of legendary mother. Hudson’s own personal life was in the spotlight thanks to her high profile relationships, including her first marriage to The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson. After their divorce in 2007, Hudson briefly dated baseball star Alex Rodriguez. Hudson is currently in a relationship with Matt Bellamy, lead singer for the British band Muse. Their son Bingham Hawn Bellamy was born in July 2011.
