20 Quotes That Will Make You Adore Kate Hudson Even More

Unlike so many celebrities, actress Kate Hudson can be refreshingly honest and has a habit of telling it like it is. Kate’s straightforward quotes on life, work, growing up in a famous family and more, are one of many reasons she’s a fan favorite.


About Romantic Comedies



Considering she’s pretty much built her career on romantic comedies it’s ironic that she’s not really into them, saying: “I’m not a big fan of romantic comedies, believe it or not… Well, I don’t run out to see them.”


About Being Compared to Her Mother



Kate doesn’t resent the frequent caparisons to her mom, Goldie Hawn. She was quoted by Blogher saying: “I have zero problems when people say, ‘God, you look like your mother.’ I go, ‘Well, great! Thanks!'”


About Eating During Pregnancy



She stood up for herself, while discussing pregnancy weight, saying: “I gained 60 pounds, and I’m proud of it. Why do I need to watch my weight when I’m pregnant? I could eat whatever the hell I want to eat.”


About Expensive Gowns



Many actresses would hesitate to admit they don’t own all their high end gowns, but not Kate: “People think we own all these dresses,” she told Bazaar, “but we borrow them! I can’t afford to buy that stuff.”


About Making It on Her Own



Although Kate Hudson was born into Hollywood royalty, she set out to make it on her own, saying: “I auditioned on my own. I tried to make a mark for myself without anybody’s help, not even Mom’s.”


About Hollywood Competition



The film industry is notoriously competitive, but Kate says games are the only things that bring out her sense of competition, telling Phase 9 Entertainment: “The only things I’m competitive in are backgammon and poker.”


About Wanting a Different Life



When she was married to Chris Robinson, Kate craved the simple life, explaining: “Everyday, I tell my husband, ‘Maybe we should cash in. I’ll make handmade lotion and you can write music and sell it on the internet”.


About Work/Life Balance



“Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children,” Kate Hudson wrote in an essay for InStyle titled “Sometimes I Feel Like a Bad Mom.” She told the magazine that while she’s close to her two sons, she’s pained when work obligations take her away from them.


About Not Being Spoiled



She wasn’t as pampered as you might think. “My mom wasn’t a big shopper for us,” she says. “I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle.”


About Happiness



Kate’s book Pretty Happy isn’t a typical celebrity self-help book. In an interview for Allure, she explained, “Happiness is not something that just comes to you, it’s an active process. (It’s about) throwing perfection out the window.”


About Doing You



Talking to PopSugar about her book, she pointed out that you don’t have to be an extrovert to have a good time, saying: “Just let the person who wants to sit in the corner and be happy sit in the corner and be happy!”


About Relationships



On relationships ending, she says: “The bigger you love, the more vulnerable you are, the scarier it is if it’s lost,” adding “I’ve found that attachment is the root of a lot of uncomfortable moments in your life.”


About What Animal She Would Be



When Harper’s Bazaar pulled out the old “If you could be any animal” question, she had an interesting response: “I’d be a snow bunny,” explaining “I had a weird encounter with one last winter in Aspen. I think it was a sign.”


About Her Instagram



While many celebs outsource their social media, Kate gets a kick out of doing her own. When asked who manages her Instagram, she replied: “I would never let anyone manage my Instagram! I enjoy it.”


About Watching Her Parents “Do It” On-Screen



A potentially embarrassing part of growing up with celebrity parents is seeing them do sex scenes, but when asked if it bothered her, Kate told the Telegraph: “Not me. I always thought my mother was so damn cute!”


About Healing from Relationships



Kate Hudson has an intriguing way of saying she wants to take a break from relationships, saying: “It’s good to take a second to make my life about getting myself centered, clearing the energy, no overlapping,”


About Painful Moments



Kate is now able to laugh about the challenges she and brother Oliver faced after their father allegedly abandoned them, telling Dirty Sexy Funny: “Life is funny. I just feel so lucky. I actually feel like it was a blessing,”


About Her Children’s Homework



Helping kids with homework is an unpleasant chore for most parents, including Kate, who’s refreshingly honest on the subject, telling InStyle: “I’m gonna say it: I’d prefer to watch The Bachelor rather than do fractions and divisions.”


About Her Kids



In another of Kate’s candid remarks on parenting, she describes her feeling toward her kids, saying: “They’re a pain in my ass and they’re the best pain in my ass ever. I just love every bit of it.”


About Being Upbeat



She has a reputation for being an upbeat extrovert but surprisingly she says: “When I was younger I felt I had to apologize for being so happy, for not seeing things in a negative way.”
