Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On ex Matthew Bellamy: “We’re family for the rest of our lives, we have a beautiful baby and we love making wine. We’ll continue doing it.”
On getting into wine: “It’s just something we grew up with. My parents were always, well, wine enthusiasts, and they took us on wine trips. I went to Burgundy when I was 14 and Bordeaux when I was 16. Kurt Russell, my stepdad, started making wine a few years back up in the Santa Rita Hills, and he kept telling me and Matt [Bellamy, co-owner of Hudson Bellamy Wines] that we had to get up and blend with them and do a harvest. We ended slogging up there, and that was it. It was too much fun. It was something we enjoyed doing together, just a wonderful pastime and incredible creative experience.”
On her Farmville charity project:”It was good for The Hawn Foundation [which benefits from Hudson Bellamy, along with War Child] and good for the wine. It was a two-week fun thing we did. My friends know the guys who did it, and they wanted to do a winemaking version. I got to have my own avatar, and I thought that was hilarious.”
