Kate Garry Hudson (born April 19, 1979) is an American actress, author and fashion designer. She rose to prominence for her performance in the film Almost Famous (2000), for which she won a Golden Globe and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Hudson was born in Los Angeles, California, the daughter of Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, an actor, comedian, and musician. Her parents divorced when she was 18 months old and she and her older brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised in Snowmass, Colorado, and Pacific Palisades, California, by her mother and her mother's longtime boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell. Hudson has stated that she considers Russell her father. Hudson has described her mother as "the woman that I've learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to".
In 2013, Hudson, in a partnership with online fashion retailer JustFab, launched her own line of workout clothes and active wear, Fabletics, which currently operates 25 stores in the United States. The venture became her focus, and in a 2018 interview, Hudson remarked: "I work more on Fabletics now than I do on movies."
In 2016, Hudson released her first book, Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body. In 2017, she released her second book, Pretty Fun: Creating and Celebrating a Lifetime of Tradition.
In August 2018, Hudson and New York & Company, Inc. announced their partnership, a multi-year deal, consisting on being the ambassador for its US$200 million Soho Jeans collection, and develop her own fashion line. In 2018, Hudson collaborated with her mother Goldie to create a capsule collection, with 50 percent of net proceeds will benefit MindUP, a program within the Goldie Hawn Foundation.
Hudson married Chris Robinson, the frontman for The Black Crowes, on December 31, 2000, in Aspen, Colorado. The couple's son was born in 2004. In 2006, Hudson's publicist announced that Hudson and Robinson had separated. The divorce was finalized in 2007, with Hudson being granted joint custody of Ryder.
In early 2010, Hudson began dating Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. Hudson and Bellamy became engaged in April 2011 and their son was born in 2011. In 2014, the couple announced that they had ended their engagement. Hudson and Bellamy are on good terms with one another and co-parent their son.
On April 6, 2018, Hudson announced she and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa are expecting their first child together. On October 2, she announced the birth of her daughter Rani Rose Hudson Fujikawa via Instagram.
