Kate, who is a mom to Ryder, 19, Bingham, 10 and Rani, 2, said that she thinks motherhood has made her “a better human being” and a “very good therapist.”

She added that her kids help her overcome her demons by keeping her “grounded and focused.”

Kate shares Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, Bingham with ex-fiance Matt Bellamy, and Rani with current boyfriend Danny Fujikawa.

She also opened up about her upbringing with mom Goldie Hawn and her long-term partner Kurt Russell, reflecting on the impact her lack of relationship with her father Bill Hudson had on her.

“I had personal struggles or familial situations that were challenging,” she explained. “[They] kind of prepared me for my future and my success. I had a lot of personal trauma I never really allowed myself to be OK about, or recognize as being traumatic.”

She continued, “I’d probably tell my younger self, ‘It’s OK that you’re hurting… you’re OK.’ Maybe that would have softened some things in my life a bit along the way. I’d give myself permission to give myself a big hug.”

Kate also expressed her excitement about her new series Truth Be Told, which she stars in alongside Octavia Spencer.

The show explores the recent obsession with true crime podcasts, with Kate playing a lifestyle guru named Micah Keith.

“I feel like we’ve had about five past lives together,” she said of working with Octavia. “We’d met during the awards circuit and things but never really spent any time together. It was just an immediate connection – we got really lucky with that. It was nice.”

Kate was recently spotted on set for her new movie Knives Out 2. Check out all the pics
