Kate Hudson: “Relationships Are The Most Challenging Things”

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Kate Hudson, who’s been engaged to Matthew Bellamy for nearly two years and the subject of rumored relationship problems, shares her thoughts on love in the May issue of SELF. “Relationships are the most challenging things,” she tells the magazine.

Hudson adds, “It’s where you do the most work in your life. You come face-to-face with yourself, and if you can deal with realizing we’re all flawed, accept it and work with it, you might have a really amazing, lasting relationship.”

The Wish I Was Here star values what her mother Goldie Hawn has with long-time partner Kurt Russell. “If I look at my parents, who’ve been together 30-something years, I’d say no matter what they’ve been through, they share similar values and really like each other,” says Hudson, adding, “It sounds easy, but it’s not.”

No matter what happens, the actress relies on her female friendships. “My mom once said something so poignant to me: ‘Honor your female friendships, because men can come and go, but when we nurture our relationships with women, they can be forever,'” says Hudson. “I really believe that,” explains the once divorced actress. “My girlfriends are so important to me. They’ve been my rock-solid foundation.” What do you think of Hudson’s comments?
