Rich robinson is dating laura thompson

She was raised by her mother and her mother's partner, actor Kurt Russell, whom she considers to be her father.

Her next two films, while critically panned, made it into wider release: 200 Cigarettes (1999) (in which she played an earnest but accident-prone ditz) and Gossip (2000) (which cast her as a rich, virginal college student).

Perhaps Hudson's biggest break was landing the role of rock groupie (or "Band Aide") Penny Lane in Almost Famous (2000).

Almost everyone who has spent time with Kate Hudson -including directors, family members, co-stars and interviewers - is quick to comment on her ability to light up a room.

Her family hoped that she would attend New York University after graduating from high school, but she opted to get her feet wet in the professional acting world first.

She made her big-screen debut as an ambitious young starlet stranded in a tiny California town in Desert Blue (1998).

Kate is of Hungarian Jewish (from her maternal grandmother), Italian (from her paternal grandmother), English, and German ancestry.

By all accounts, Hudson was a born performer - as a child she danced and sang at every opportunity.
