How Old Was Kate Hudson When She Started Rising To Fame?

By Tiara

As we all know, almost famous people are usually paired with their own show or movie after they reach fame. This is typically done as media exposure helps them gain more recognition for their career that they already have!

Kate Hudson is one of those rare individuals who didn’t quite find her “voice” until she hit her late 20s to early 30s. She wasn’t able to fully express herself through acting until she was at least 25-years-old.

Her first big break came when she played opposite Robert Redford in 2007′s The Bucket List. Since then, she has starred in several successful films such as No Reservations (2009), Your Sister Is Missing (2008) and Bride Wars (2013).

She won our admiration for her performance as Mandy St. John in Zodiac (2007) and Emmy Rossum admired her work while promoting For A Good Cause together earlier this year. Both of these characters were inspired by true events.

She began her acting career

As we know, actor extraordinaire Ben Affleck is not your average movie star. He rose to fame for his dramatic work as well as comedic turns, most notably playing the goofball-turned-crime fighter in The Office and its many iterations.

His recent blockbuster success includes directing and starring in Gone Girl (in which he also plays an overconfident, cheating husband) and Live By Night, both of which have earned mostly positive reviews from critics.

He’s currently filming another crime thriller titled The Reckoning, about two hit men trying to recover stolen money.

She appeared in several movies

As we discussed earlier, almost all of our favorite movie stars are known for at least one thing: they are very popular with us as their audience. A lot of it has to do with how well they portray characters that appeal to us, but some just have an undeniable charisma that people seem to connect with.

Kate Hudson is one such person. No matter what type of film she appears in, she always brings her unique style to the table which other actors learn from. Her characterizations often include strong women who are not afraid to speak up or take action.

She played these types of characters before “Bohemian Rhapsody” made her famous, like in The Cake Shop where she starred alongside Sally Field. Or in This Is Me When I'm Happy where she was a doctor trying to find herself after quitting her career.

In fact, this ability to play powerful, intelligent females probably helped her get the part of Queen Mercury in the biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

She played a famous actress

In the movie Almost Famous, which was released back in 2000, Kate Hudson plays an actress who is in her twenties. The audience can tell she is not happy with what position she has been put in, so she quits acting to pursue something else.

She decides to become a radio DJ because it does not require you to dress up very much. You also get paid good money for talking about things that people are interested in!

Kate Hudson probably still looks young for her age today due to how well she uses make-up and hairstyles that are popular at the time of the film’s release. However, back when she made this movie, she looked slightly older than she does now.

She was nominated for a Grammy

In the early 2000s, actress and singer Kate Hudson landed her first major acting role when she starred as an over-the-top reporter with a knack for self-promotion in the 2002 movie Almost Famous.

In fact, it was her performance in that film which earned her some of her most prominent recognition.

Hudson received several award nominations for her work in Almost Famous including two Golden Globe Awards (one for Best Performance by An Actress in A Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical and one for Best Supporting Actress) and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Leading Role.

She also won a Satellite Award for International Film Festival & Convention Press Prize for her work in the film.

She dated Will Smith

While promoting her most recent movie, she revealed that she has never been married or had children. However, she did admit to having an intimate relationship with someone for almost three years before they broke up.

Kate told Ellen DeGeneres during an episode of The Talk that she met her future husband while filming the 1996 hit film Almost Famous. Her character was supposed to die at the end of the movie, but instead she survived and lived happily ever after with the main character.

The two actors got along well so much that they decided to go out on a date. They ended up kissing and then dating for several months until he asked if she wanted to move in together.

She said it took her a few days to process his question because she was not quite sure what to make of it. But eventually she agreed as long as everything else is okay first. He later confirmed that it was indeed serious!

They now have a son together who they describe as their best friend. When he’s awake you will always find him watching movies or doing art projects which he loves very much. He looks just like his dad, which seems to be his favorite way to win people over.

She dated Charlie McDowell

While filming Almost Famous, Kate had her first kiss with actor Charlie McDowell. They shared very little about their relationship outside of the kissing but they both admitted it was pretty steamy!

Kate revealed she didn’t really know what to make of his attention at the time. “He would come home late every night and he’d be like, ‘I can’t wait to see you, I have something for you,’” she said. “And then he took me out dancing or somewhere after work so that he could take care of this gift for me. It was always expensive – champagne, dinner, a movie…”

She added with a giggle, “It was kind of funny because he paid for almost everything! But it was nice spending money on myself at the time.

She dated Johnny Depp

After she split from her first husband, actor Christopher Meloni, in 2006, she began dating musician-turned-actor Johnny Depp. The two were engaged for three years before calling it quits in 2009. They made their relationship public when they shared an intimate portrait of each other at Christmas time in 2008.

The couple met while filming 2003’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. In that movie, he plays Captain Jack Sparrow who teams up with Mandy (Hudson) to find his long lost son. For his part, she played his love interest. Since then, however, things took a romantic turn.

Kate described her ex as someone who is “incredibly creative” and said that he makes her feel like the most beautiful woman in the world. Even after splitting up, she says he has never stopped making her happy.

She dated Giovanni Ribisi

When she was 24, actress Kate Hudson got engaged to actor Giovanni Ribeiro. The two have been dating since early 2016! They first met at an event for her film This Is My Life (2015).

Kate is 31 years old now, which makes her fiance 22 years older than her! Their engagement took place back in May of this year, so they are not even married yet!

They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2012 Academy Awards where he won Best Actor for his performance in The Invitation. Since then, they have appeared together at several more events including Met Gala 2017.

Kate has always spoken highly of him, referring to him as her best friend and soulmate. He does not hold that title lightly, if you ask us!
