Hudson’s first acting role came in television’s “Party of Five” in 1996. Before she turned 21, however, she had achieved star status with her turn as Penny Lane in 2000’s “Almost Famous,” for which she won a Golden Globe and earned an Academy Award nomination.

As she celebrates her 43rd birthday on April 19, Hudson can reflect on a thriving career, raising three children and creating an activewear business that has contributed to her massive net worth.

The Big Screen

Hudson shares her mother’s flair for comedy, and one of her first comedic roles was in “200 Cigarettes” in 1999. “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” a 2003 film opposite Matthew McConaughey, cemented her status in Hollywood, and three years later she starred with Matt Dillon and Owen Wilson in “You, Me and Dupree.” She voiced Mei-Mei the panda in “Kung Fu Panda 3” in 2016.

But she also has appeared in dramas, including in “Marshall,” the story of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. A year earlier, in 2016, she played the wife of the character portrayed by Mark Wahlberg in “Deepwater Horizon,” the story of the catastrophe surrounding the oil drilling rig of the same name.

Her latest project is “Knives Out 2,” which stars Daniel Craig. It’s due for release later this year.

Other Projects

Hudson has authored two books, “Pretty Happy: The Healthy Way to Love Your Body,” and “Pretty Fun: Creating and Celebrating a Lifetime of Tradition.”

In 2013, she co-founded the fitness brand Fabletics, which is designed to provide activewear that is stylish and of high quality at affordable prices. In January 2015, the company reached the milestone of 1 million orders shipped.

Fabletics sells VIP memberships, and members can buy apparel at discounted prices. In January, it surpassed 2 million members.

Her entrepreneurship extends to the alcohol industry as she launched a vodka brand – King St. Vodka, named in honor of King Street in New York City, where she once lived and hosted friends for drinks.

Hudson and her older brother, Oliver, also host a podcast, “Sibling Revelry,” which focuses on the bond between siblings.

Family Life

Goldie Hawn was married to musician Bill Hudson from 1974-80, and their marriage produced two children: Oliver, born in 1976, and Kate, born in 1979. After their parents’ divorce, Bill Hudson had little input in their lives, and their father figure was actor Kurt Russell, the longtime partner of Hawn. Last June, for Father’s Day, Kate posted a loving tribute to Russell on Instagram.

“Our Pa always makes life fun,” she wrote. “Always down for exploring, always ready to take on the good life with his family. He’s one hell of a Dad. Lucky us. Happy Fathers Day Pa I love you so much.”

Hudson, herself, is raising her children as part of a blended family. Her first child, son Ryder, was born in 2004 during her marriage (2000-2007) to Chris Robinson, the lead singer of The Black Crowes. In 2011, she had a second son, Bingham Hawn Bellamy, with former fiancé Matthew Bellamy, who was a member of the band Muse. In 2018, Hudson had a daughter, Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa, with another musician, Danny Fujikawa.

Home Sweet Home … Again

Hudson was raised by Hawn and Russell in the Pacific Palisades section of Los Angeles. The family lived in a house the couple bought in the 1970s and later sold, but in 2005, Hudson decided to buy it back, according to Hello! Magazine. The purchase price was a reported $5.5 million, and in 2011, she bought the house next door for $5.3 million, giving Kate and the kids a massive compound, according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet.
