Getting into Character with Kate Hudson

Golden girl Kate Hudson has been a busy little bee. The Hollywood starlet is adding to her resume with some majorly exciting roles. She’s bringing her talents into our living rooms thanks to a television gig with the hit show Glee, playing a rather witchy dance teacher. On the other end of the spectrum she’s breaking her romantic comedy routine and getting serious on the silver screen with (the political thriller) The Reluctant Fundamentalist due out in May.

What’s more, Hudson is moving in a new direction in debuting her first fashion line with get this, the brand she’s been doing campaigns for lately, Ann Taylor. Get a sneak peak of Hudson’s sit down with Filmmaker Mira Nair for Glamour Magazine’s April issue.

Mira Nair: Are you loving Glee?

KH: [CassandraJuly] is such a wonderfully nasty character. I have so much fun playing her. And singing and dancing makes me so happy.

MN: We worked on The Reluctant Fundamentalist together, so: What are you reluctant about?

Kate Hudson: Not much! If I think about my life, I’m not reluctant about taking chances. I’m definitely not reluctant about relationships. [Laughs.]

MN: But do you trust people despite being a public person?

KH: I choose to. The reason I trust so much is that I don’t feel like I have anything to hide. If somebody betrays that trust, it could never be so bad, because I don’t keep any secrets. I’ve had friends who’ve lied to me, I’ve had friends who’ve done things behind my back, I’ve had people steal from me—and it doesn’t stop me from trusting. The only thing that gets me angry is with [people who invade the privacy of] the kids. It’s the only place where I sort of go, Is this worth it?

MN: You make everything look so easy. What’s hard for you? What’s your Everest?

KH: I have always been fiery; I go after things. But what I learned from my mother is to stepback and actually experience things that are happening. So for me, it’s about meditating. My Everest is to have that become a real part of my life.

The mother of two, and soon to be wife Matthew Bellamy elected to spill all.
