Kate Hudson booking
The daughter of actress-producer Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, a 1970s television comedian, Kate
Hudson was raised by her mother and Hawn’s longtime companion, actor Kurt Russell, after her
parents divorced when she was 18 months old. No stranger to the show business life, Hudson decided
to embark on an acting career of her own, landing an agent and a guest spot on the TV drama Party of
Five in 1996. Upon her acceptance to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Hudson
convinced Hawn and Russell to let her defer a year in order to concentrate on finding her first film role.
In 1998, she appeared in the little-seen independent film ‘Desert Blue’, alongside fellow up-andcoming young actors Christina Ricci, Casey Affleck, and Brendan Sexton III. She was also a featured
player in the ensemble cast of ’200 Cigarettes’ (1999), a comedy that received poor reviews despite its
talented cast, which included Ricci, Ben Affleck, Paul Rudd, and Courtney Love.
Hudson began the year 2000 somewhat inauspiciously, with a supporting turn as a virginal college
student in the unimpressive teen thriller ‘Gossip’. By year’s end, however, she had charmed her way
into the hearts of moviegoers and critics with her breakthrough performance as Penny Lane, the
leader of a group of girls, or so-called “Band-Aids,” who worship at the altar of 1970s rock & roll as
imagined by writer-director Cameron Crowe in his autobiographical film ‘Almost Famous’. Originally
cast in a smaller role, Hudson won the part after another young actress, Sarah Polley (‘The Sweet
Hereafter’, ‘Go’) dropped out. As Penny, the sometime lover of Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup), lead
guitarist in the rock band Stillwater, and the object of affection for Crowe’s own alter ego, the budding
rock journalist William Miller (Patrick Fugit), Hudson was in many ways the emotional center of the
film. Her glowing performance earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination
for Best Supporting Actress. Also in 2000, Hudson appeared in the ensemble cast of Robert Altman’s
‘Dr. T and the Women’, costarring Richard Gere, Helen Hunt, Farrah Fawcett, and Liv Tyler. In 2001,
she starred in ‘Four Feathers’, a wartime drama costarring Wes Bentley (‘American Beauty’) and
Heath Ledger (‘The Patriot’). Upcoming projects included Garry Marshall’s ‘Raising Helen’, where she
played a successful single woman forced to take care of her sister’s three young children after a car
accident. In 2004, she starred opposite Luke Wilson in the romantic comedy ‘Alex & Emma’. Her other
films include ‘You, Me and Dupree’ (2006), ‘Fools Gold’ (2008), and ‘Bride Wars’ (2009).
Since the release of ‘Bride Wars’, the actress has appeared in four motion pictures, including ‘Nine’, ‘A
Little Bit of Heaven’, ‘Something Borrowed’ and ‘The Killer Inside Me’, which received mixed reviews
because of its graphic depiction of violence towards women.
