Kate Hudson Covers ELLE November 2010
The issue honors the 31-year-old actress and several other women who have had an impact on the film industry including Gwyneth Paltrow, Hilary Swank, Sofia Coppola, Kerry Washington, Diane Keaton, Jodie Foster, and Diane Kruger.
Here’s a little Q&A with the mag and Kate:
What actress do you most admire? I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t say my mom [Goldie Hawn]. Apart from the fact that she’s my mother, she’s a brilliant comedian and a force as a producer. She paved the way for women to produce and star in their own films, and to balance that with being the matriarch of our family is really inspiring.
Are good female roles hard to find? They are—because in most male-driven vehicles, the female parts tend to be dispensable. I have faith that we can make female-driven films that are as interesting to men as they are to women.
What did you learn from your mother about being a parent in Hollywood? My mom and dad had it figured out: They never worked at the same time, and they were very conscious of making anywhere we went feel like home. When you’re working, the hours are brutal, but when you’re not working, you have all the time in the world. That’s always a difficult balance.
