Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn's One-of-a-Kind Bond, in Kate's Own Words
Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn's mother-daughter bond is unlike most others. Whether they're hitting a red carpet together or giving each other sweet shout-outs on social media, there's no denying that the nearly 37-year-old actress truly has one of the coolest moms in Hollywood. Throughout her time in the spotlight, Kate has opened up about her tight-knit relationship with Goldie, calling her "incredibly lovable" and revealing, "I pretty much talk to her every day. I can't really go a week. It's super rare." With Mother's Day right around the corner, we're looking back at the sweetest things Kate has said about her look-a-like mom.
- On Goldie's Hawn Foundation: "What my mom has spent these last 20 years focused on has been truly remarkable! #RoleModel."
- On her mother's relationship with Kurt Russell: "I think what they have, in terms of connection, is really rare and beautiful and something to strive for, but it doesn't come without its stuff, [as do] all relationships."
- On her humble upbringing: "My mom wasn't a big shopper for us. I think they [Goldie and Kurt Russell] wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."
- On Goldie being her role model: "As much as she means to other people for other reasons, she is literally the life force for me and my family."
- On Goldie's easygoing nature: "Because of her personality, but also because of her spirituality, she's very open to change and can go with the ebbs and flows of life. She is a searcher herself, so my mom loves and enjoys her own life, which I think was a really wonderful thing to see growing up."
- On the best advice she's gotten from Goldie: "My mom once said something so poignant to me: 'Honor your female friendships, because men can come and go, but when we nurture our relationships with women, they can be forever.' I really believe that."
- On their close bond: "It starts with my mom. My mom never had — obviously as a parent you have certain expectations — but my mother never had unreasonable expectations. Her expectations were very simple: it was your kindness, and being present, and acknowledgment, and gratitude. Things that are really, I think, important to be raised with. But in terms of life expectations — what you do, or who you're with, or what you chose to be — she really allowed us the freedom to experience our own lives, which doesn't mean that it didn't come with parenting! I pretty much talk to her every day. I can't really go a week. I've gone a week, but it's super rare."
