Kate Garry Hudson is an American Golden Globe-winning and Oscar-nominated film actress
Whether it's her smile or her impeccable style, Kate Hudson has a natural sexiness that had our voting panel asking for her phone number. We had to refuse the request though, out of respect to Chris Robinson, Black Crowes lead singer, and as of January 1, 2001... her husband.
Kate's Turned-Down/Lost Roles:
• Lady Jocelyn in A Knight's Tale (2001), lost out to Shannyn Sossamon
• role in Escape from L.A. (1996)
• Mary Jane Watson, Spider-Man (2002), to work on Four Feathers
• turned down roles in American Beauty (1999) and Girl With a Pearl Earring (2003)
Hudson's breakthrough was as Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous (2000), for which she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress. She had previously appeared in the lesser-known films Gossip, a teenage drama, and 200 Cigarettes, a New Year's-set comedy with a large cast of actors. Regarding her early career and success, Hudson has noted that she is a "hard worker", and did not want to be associated with her well-known parents, wishing to avoid the perception that she "rode on somebody's coattails".
In 2002 Hudson starred in the remake of the historical romance The Four Feathers, a film which was not well received by critics or audiences. Her next film, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, a romantic comedy, became a big success at the box office, grossing over $100 million after its February 2003 release. Hudson subsequently appeared in several romantic comedies, including Alex and Emma and Raising Helen; the films met with varying degrees of success.
Hudson headlined a thriller called The Skeleton Key in 2005. The film, which had a production budget of $43 million, enjoyed box office success, grossing over $91.9 million worldwide ($47.9 million in North America).[Her later film, a comedy titled You, Me and Dupree and co-starring Owen Wilson and Matt Dillon, grossed $21.5 million on its opening weekend of July 14, 2006.
In 2007 Hudson directed the short film Cutlass, one of Glamour magazine's "Reel Moments" based on readers' personal essays. Cutlass co-stars Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase and Kristen Stewart.
In 2008, she appeared in Fool's Gold, a romantic comedy released on February 8th, and her second film to co-star Matthew McConaughey. She had been certified in scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef for the movie's underwater scenes. Her latest film, another romantic comedy, titled My Best Friend's Girl, was released in September.
It was recently announced that Hudson will appear in the musical film Nine alongside Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Judi Dench, among others. The film, directed by Rob Marshall, will be released in the fall of 2009.

stating that a healthy sex life is the key to making a successful relationship
People think you can put your sexual life on hold, but you have to find time for it. Without that relationship, our family is broken. My mum really implanted that in me when I was pregnant.
evealing she is ready to appear naked in a film
It depends on the movie and depends on the circumstance (but) I am pretty comfortable with that – as long as it works for the movie. If I wanted a part I would pretty much do anything I needed to in order to get that role.
Kate Hudson Quotes
"I have a big, flamboyant, open personality, which I think is why people may be saying these nice things about me."
"I swear a lot in My Best Friend's Girl. But I actually talk like that. It was fun to swear in a movie. In real life, I can't hold a conversation without swearing. "
"The one thing that is very different about being a single mom is dating. But I would rather be home with my son, cooking dinner, than going out with a guy."
"I was a tomboy. I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on who always came back in the house filthy, with scrapes and bruises. But I was always very girly, too. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed."
"I am such a sucker for reality television. It's almost like it's so absurd that you can't stop watching it. I just think it's a phase and people will get over it."
"Whenever I feel stressed out or like I'm going crazy, I stop myself and say how lucky I am to be able to do what I do. I'm so lucky to be able to have my baby with me everywhere I go."
"I can take all the criticism in the world, and it really won't affect me. I'm just having a great time being alive. How lucky are we just to be here and healthy? What a fun thing."
"I have an amazing job, but you need more than fame to be happy. If anybody is in this business to get famous, they ought to get out, because everybody falls off the shortlist eventually."
"I know there are ups and downs. You're up one minute and then you can't get arrested. That's happened to both my parents. I'm aware of that. But our family doesn't really discuss acting. We don't sit around the kitchen table and read the trades. We're just a close family."
"I don't consider myself better than any other girl walking down the street. But a lot of people in the industry aren't that way."
