Kate Hudson And Goldie Hawn

Kate Hudson, who played in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003), Bride Wars (2009), Glee ( 2012-2013), Mother's Day (2016), and Glass Onion (2022), is apparently (or a-parent-ly) the daughter of Goldie Hawn whose list of works includes The Sugarland Express (1974), Shampoo (1975), Foul Play (1978), Seems Like Old Times (1980), and Private Benjamin (1980), but you might know her from classics Death Becomes Her (1992) and The First Wives Club (1996) as well as more recent Snatched (2017), The Christmas Chronicles franchise.
