Golden Globe winner and Academy AwardÂ® nominee
KATE HUDSON is the daughter of comedienne Goldie Hawn. Born in Los Angeles and raised with her brother Oliver in Colorado, Kate decided to pursue an acting career instead of taking up a place at New York University.
Her film debut was 200 CIGARETTES with a group of young talent who were also on their way to wider recognition—Ben Affleck, Courtney Love, Christina Ricci, Jay Mohr, Dave Chappelle, Martha Plimpton, Paul Rudd and Gaby Hoffman. Set in New York's East Village on New Year's Eve 1981, Kate's comic performance was singled out by critics.
A couple of other films—DESERT BLUE and GOSSIP—preceded her award-winning, deliciously observed performance in Cameron Crowe's ALMOST FAMOUS in 2000, for which she received an OscarÂ® nomination, and a Golden Globe award as Best Supporting Actress.
Hudson played Richard Gere's daughter in Robert Altman's DR. T AND THE WOMEN, appeared with Heath Ledger in Shekhar Kapur's remake of THE FOUR FEATHERS. She enjoyed success in the romantic comedy HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS with Matthew McConaughey, a teaming that was successfully repeated in FOOL'S GOLD.
Other films include: Garry Marshall's RAISING HELEN, the psychological thriller THE SKELETON KEY and the successful comedy YOU, ME AND DUPREE. Hudson starred in MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL and BRIDE WARS with Anne Hathaway, which she also produced.
As an interesting sideline to her movie career, Hudson and her hair stylist/partner David Babaii launched a hair care product line using exotic natural ingredients, created without animal testing, designed to benefit Wild Aid, a global non-profit organization protecting endangered species.
