Kate Hudson has learned a thing or two about co-parenting thanks to her three children and their fathers.
She recently revealed about her complex family dynamics, including with her own mother, Goldie Hawn, in a conversation with TODAY Willie Geist, broadcast on Sunday.
“I have several fathers, I have children everywhere,” she said, laughing.
The 41-year-old starring “How to Lose a Boy in 10 Days” shares her son Ryder, 17, with her ex-husband Chris Robinson, and her son Bingham, 9, with her ex-fiancé Matt Bellamy. In 2018, she welcomed her daughter Rani Rose with her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.
“The only expectations I really have that are really high in my life are my children and family matters,”
But Hudson also found himself staying home with his family because of the sometimes challenging challenge of COVID-19.
“I want to be like, ‘Yeah, it’s so great and … we got it,’ but the reality is that there are days that are great, and there are days when I have to remind myself to be grateful,” the co-founder explained. Fabletics. “I never thought I’d spend a year in one place in a million years. And when you have so many kids, sometimes you have those moments of hiding in your bathroom, ‘Please, please get me out of here!’ “
“I just remind myself that there are a lot of people who have lost loved ones, and we just have to stay for a while,” she added.
Although Hudson has a close relationship with her own children, she grew up without knowing her own father, musician and actor Bill Hudson. She and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised by Hawn and her longtime partner Kurt Russell.
“I think alienation is unfortunately quite common,” she told Willie. “I think it’s important for people to talk about it. If they can’t connect again, or if it’s too challenging, that’s fine, isn’t it?”
“It’s a matter of 41 years,” she continued, referring to her own father. “I have a great family. I have a beautiful mother. I have a stepfather who intervened and played a huge, huge role in sharing what it is like to have a reliable father in our lives. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that we didn’t know our father.
“I think while I’m going through this process … I look at my father and I’m like, ‘You know, love never went anywhere.’ She has always been there, no matter what these complications were. And healing is … personal, and I think sometimes people just have to hear that they’re not alone in that. “
Hudson often reflects on these issues in her podcast “Sibling Revelry,” which she hosts with her brother Oliver Hudson. But long before she became a prominent podcast, she achieved her first major success with the cult classic film of 2000. “Almost Famous.”
It was definitely a whirlwind, she recalls. “It was almost like this year of my life – people kept asking me, ‘How does it feel? What is the feeling? “Everything was happening so fast at that moment … and I didn’t even have time to master it. And then my life was just work, work, work. “
“From the outside, it may not have seemed as reasonable as it actually was,” she continued. “But yes, I mean, the shot from the cannon is basically what it was.”
A few 20 years later, the Golden Globe winner starred in the upcoming film Music, which comes out in February and tells the story of a drug dealer played by Hudson, who becomes the guardian of her teenage half-sister with autism. It is directed by the pop musician Sia.
“We call it a musical experience,” Hudson said. “I think it’s a work of art. I mean, that was Sia’s intention. Her intention was to make a film about love, about finding love, about feeling worthy of love.”
She is now working on the second season of Apple TV + drama “The Truth Is Told” against Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, and safety protocols due to the coronavirus are “very strict”, including masks and face shields, she said. .
“I was watching us the other day with all of us — and I’m like, ‘God, we’re crazy,'” she said.
