Kate HudsonAKA Kate Garry Hudson

Born: 19-Apr-1979
Birthplace: Los Angeles, CA

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Almost Famous

Kate Hudson is an American actress, the daughter of Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson, who divorced when she was a child. She was raised by Hawn and actor Kurt Russell. At 17, Hudson decided she would be an actress, hired an agent, and popped up in five forgettable films before her breakthrough role in 2000's Almost Famous. She's appeared in an increasingly long line of forgettable films since, including How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, Alex and Emma, Le Divorce, and Raising Helen. She was almost Spider-Man's girlfriend, but the role went to Kirsten Dunst when Hudson chose to do The Four Feathers instead.

Penny Lane, Hudson's character in Almost Famous, was more-than-loosely based on famous groupie Pamela Des Barres, author of I'm With the Band: Confessions of a Groupie.
