Kate Hudson defended her mother, Goldie Hawn, for being labeled “difficult” and “complicated” in Hollywood.
“Many of these movies really had to fight to get it made. [and] On Tuesday’s episode of the “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa” podcast, Hudson said about her mother’s Hollywood career, which was seen by many as difficult and complex because she had a point of view.
Hudson, 43, “decided to tell people who told him to stay on his lane to fuck themselves and basically started making their own movies that weren’t there at the time.”
Ripa, 52, pointed out how “funny” it is that women are often called “difficult” and “complicated” just because they have an opinion.
“True,” Hudson agreed, revealing that he had recently encountered someone with problems while working with the “First Wives Club” star.
“He was kind of saying he was challenged and I was like, ‘You know, that’s funny, but was he right about what you thought was difficult?’ I remember thinking.” “And he was like, ‘Oh yeah, I mean he was absolutely right. The entire script had to be completely rewritten.’”
Hudson continued, “He was really just trying to say, ‘Hey guys, we should probably look at the script again’… And that’s considered complicated. Especially in Hollywood in the 70s and 80s.”
The “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” actress expressed her admiration for her 77-year-old mother for never giving up.
“I saw his strength. I saw his conviction. He’s so determined. So he’s really incredible,” Hudson said, adding that Hawn is proud of his mother for never giving up on the MindUp foundation she started 20 years ago, which aims to teach kids how to manage stress.

“He was at the cutting edge of this business and he never gave up,” Hudson added. “It’s been twenty years and he’s finally getting some kind of praise for what he’s created, but he doesn’t give up.”
The “Glass Onion” star said she was “blessed” to have a mother like Hawn.
“I don’t even know what I must have done in my previous life to be born her mother,” Hudson said.
While the Fabletics founder gushes from her mother, Ripa couldn’t help praising her “Almost Famous” graduate for being such a “grounded” celebrity.
“One of the few people I know from the talk show, we have a mutual friend and we had dinner together, and you get what you see,” said the ‘Live’ host. aforementioned. “No fakes. It’s not like a Hollywood façade. She’s just a really good, normal nice girl.”
The “Overboard” star shares Kate and 46-year-old son Oliver with her 73-year-old ex-husband Bill Hudson, whom Hawn was married to from 1976 to 1982.
