THE SKELETON KEY

Golden Globe® Award winner and Academy Award® nominee KATE HUDSON (Caroline) made her studio film debut in 200 Cigarettes, co-starring with Ben Affleck, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci, Jay Mohr, Dave Chappelle, Martha Plimpton, Paul Rudd and Gaby Hoffman. Directed by Risa Bramon Garcia, Kate's performance in the comedy—set in New York's East Village on New Year's Eve, 1981—was singled out by critics across the boards.

Next, Kate co-starred with Christina Ricci, Casey Affleck and Brendan Sexton III in Morgan J. Freeman's Desert Blue, centered around a toxic chemical scare in a remote tourist trap in California. She co-starred in Warner Bros.' Gossip, a psychological drama about the deadly power of rumors, set on a college campus, featuring James Marsden, Norman Reedus and Joshua Jackson.

Kate's performance in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous won the hearts of critics and moviegoers around the world, and her performance earned her a Golden Globe® Award, an Academy Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actress and a BAFTA nomination, amongst numerous other honors and recognition, including the Broadcast Film Critics' Award for Breakthrough Performance. The Golden Globe® Award winner for Best Movie (Musical or Comedy) about the world of 1970s rock won rave reviews for the film and its gifted cast, including Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Patrick Fugit, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jason Lee, Anna Paquin and Fairuza Balk. Almost Famous appeared on over 115 Top-10 lists for the year, including over 30 critics organizations which named it the best picture of the year.

Critics were unanimous in their praise of Kate's touching portrayal of "Band-Aid” Penny Lane: "Her work is delicate, authentic and accomplished…” (Los Angeles Times); "A phenomenal debut…” (The Wall Street Journal); "Hudson signals with her radiant turn here that she's ready for major stardom…” (People Magazine); and "A nuanced, star-making performance…” (New York Post).

Kate played Richard Gere's daughter in Robert Altman's Dr. T and the Women, part of an all-star cast, including Richard Gere, Helen Hunt, Laura Dern and Liv Tyler. She was seen next in About Adam, playing an unlucky-in-love singer/waitress who falls for a charming young man who mesmerizes her entire family. 

Co-starring Stuart Townsend and Frances O'Connor, the Miramax romantic comedy was written and directed by Gerard Stembridge. Kate also appeared in the period epic The Four Feathers, which she filmed in London opposite Heath Ledger and Wes Bentley for director Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth).

Kate starred opposite Matthew McConaughey in the hit romantic comedy How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, which surpassed $100 million at the domestic box office. She starred in Alex & Emma for director Rob Reiner, opposite Luke Wilson, and was part of the all-star ensemble cast in Merchant-Ivory's contemporary comedy Le Divorce, appearing with such international co-stars as Naomi Watts, Glenn Close, Stockard Channing, Sam Waterston, Leslie Caron and Stephen Fry. Most recently, she starred in the title role of Garry Marshall's Raising Helen for Disney.

Since her debut in 200 Cigarettes, Kate has been featured in People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World” issue twice and on numerous magazine covers, including two issues of Vanity Fair (the celebrated Hollywood Issue, as part of the magazine's Class of 1999, as well as a solo cover in October 2000), Vogue, Rolling Stone, Harper's Bazaar, Jane, Interview, InStyle, Cosmopolitan and many others around the world.
