Actress Kate Hudson is a constant in entertainment headlines, whether it be speculation over who she is dating, rumors of plastic surgery, or baby bump watch. The actress, who is the daughter of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, also faced a public split with Chris Robinson after marrying at 21 and welcoming son Ryder at 24. In an interview with Telegraph.co.uk, the Nine actress opened up about her marriage, divorce, and the paparazzi.
On her marriage/divorce to Chris Robinson: “I just met Chris and he was great. As untraditional as he looks, he is a southerner, from Georgia. He has pretty traditional values. It wasn’t exactly a traditional wedding, though. No, we mixed it up a bit there. The divorce wasn’t very traditional either. But I don’t regret that relationship because it gave me my son and, to this day, I have such a deep love for Chris. Just as it takes work to be in a relationship, so it takes work to not be in a relationship. We still disagree, but that person is in my life forever because of Ryder.”
On the paparazzi: I can disappear, though. There is a way not to draw attention to yourself. If I want to draw attention to myself, put on heels and a tight dress and do my hair up, then I can. But I can also tone it down. For me I’d go crazy if I couldn’t go out and walk in the streets. I learnt some of that from my mum. She is so recognisable. She’s just so Goldie! When I was a girl I would get embarrassed and say: ‘Mum, put a hat on or something.’ ”
