Goldie Hawn on Kate Hudson: ‘We share everything. She’s the greatest’

The reviews are out for Snatched and they are… not good. It only has a 36% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it’s not so much of a stinker that no one is seeing it. It did moderately well at the box office and will probably make back its production budget. Some of my friends saw it and liked it actually, and reviews are mixed. I feel sorry for Goldie Hawn that this was her comeback movie after 15 years, but she’ll get more chances and so will Amy Schumer.

People is still meting out quotes from their interview with Goldie Hawn, and I found myself really relating to what she said about her relationship with daughter Kate Hudson, 38. Goldie gushed about Kate and about how close they are and it was sweet. She also has sons Oliver Hudson, 40, and Wyatt Russell, 30, and she’s tight with them too.

“A mother-daughter bond is very different,” Hawn says in PEOPLE’s latest cover story. “When I had Wyatt — my third, Kurt’s and mine — [Kate] came to the hospital. She was 7, and she came up to me: ‘Mommy, I’m so happy I’m your only girl.’ I said, ‘I’m so happy too, honey.’ As we grow older together, I can’t express the amount of love, joy, laughter, sadness we share. She understands me, I understand her. We’re girls. We share everything. She’s, like, the greatest.”

Though she shares a special bond with Kate, Hawn admits that her boys, as she calls them, are still there for her in times of need. When she recently lost a close friend, the actress says they were supportive.

“My boys were amazing,” she says. “And they were so loving and so kind. And Katie, we call each other and we can cry together. We know what that’s like. My sons do, too — but they’re boys. So we can cry on each other’s shoulders and laugh in each other’s faces. We have all of that.”

I feel this way about my mom. She’s my best friend, I tell her (almost) everything, and I’m so lucky that I live close to her and can see her frequently. I often wish I could see her more than I do because it never seems like we have enough time together. We weren’t always this close and had a rough relationship until I was well into my 30s, but we’re really good friends now. Also, I never realized how much she did for us until I was older. This was nice to read. Plus, look at how damn cute Kate and Goldie are together. I love their facial expressions they’re such twinsies.

    Goldie looks incredible, and Kurt is pretty cute there too. I’m just starting to have this relationship with my mum. Four girls in our family tho, lol

    I NEED this story right now. I need to know that mother-daughter relationships can be so happy and loving and easy.
    I’m about to bring my own daughter into the world next month. I already have a sweet little son. But my own mom is an alcoholic with borderline personality disorder. Our relationship is a painful burden to me, I have often considered not even having her in my life. There’s no honesty there and I feel like my main goal in the relationship is to keep it calm. There’s no reward, there’s no comraderie.
    It makes me scared of becoming a mother to a daughter. I find myself seeking our stories such as these, so I can have role models and hope that if I work hard and stay self-aware I can have such a relationship with my own daughter. What they have is priceless.

      Your comment really hit me because I had very toxic and abusive parents. My mother especially was very abusive to me, so when I was pregnant with my second child who was a girl I also felt the same feelings you are. But then she was born and I held her I knew that I would do everything in my power to make sure she was the most loved and happy little girl. I also cut out both my parents out of my life a couple months after she was born and it was the best thing I could have done for myself and my children. So don’t worry, just by you caring enough to want a good relationship with your daughter shows that you will be a good mother to her and nothing like your mother.

    • Annetommy says:

      I had a difficult relationship with my mother Patricia, though she did not have the problems your mother had. In many ways she was a very good parent and I think she did her very best. But there was a lack of open affection and closeness that was very sad. However, my relationship with my grown up daughter is very different, and always has been. We are both far from perfect, and we have had our “moments”, but we are close and affectionate in a way I never knew with my own mum (RIP). The past does not always dictate your future, and the fact that you have insight into the issue is a very positive thing. I wish you and your new daughter every happiness.

    • Tiny Martian says:

      You can have it, Patricia. If you truly invest in your relationship with your daughter and make it a priority, if you accept her for who she is and are always there when she needs comfort and support, then you will reap what you sow.

      I had my own doubts about this when my daughter was born, but now she is 17 and she is lovely. She’s never once said she hates me, we share everything, she is affectionate and caring and proud to be seen with me. We have none of the issues that society deems to be “typical” for mother/teen daughter relationships. So you have a lot to look forward to!!!

    • TyrantDestroyed says:

      There are good stories out there Patricia. My mother raised me by herself and we always have each other’s back until this day. Our relationship is full of respect and love for each other. We live in 2 different countries now but that is not excuse to break or weaken our bond. I have my own family now but my mother will always have a huge space in my heart.
      I am sure you will be a great mom for your daughter and you will enjoy beautiful moments together. Congratulations for your baby.

    • Betsy says:

      Patricia, your relationship with your mother is strained because she is an alcoholic with borderline personality disorder. You are not that. You and your daughter will have a wonderful, lovely relationship. And any child is a fresh little gift from God* You will take every day one day at a time with your new bundle of sleepless nights, breast pain and joy and you will build a relationship with this new person just as you did with your first! Congrats!

      *(any wanted child – I’m pro choice and want no one agonizing over this!)

    • Patricia says:

      Thank you to everyone with these very reassuring comments. It means a lot to hear this. I’m so sorry for those of you who also struggle with parents who have these issues. It’s a lifelong heartache.

      Another one here with a toxic abusive mom.

      My girl is about the graduate high school and we are good friends.
      She has taught me more than I could ever teach her.
      Our job is to stay out of the way.
      One thing my mother taught me was what not to do.
      Everyday night I say I love you, and I tell her all the time she is beautiful. No matter what. I give her encouragement and try to hide my anxieties.

      But I DO suffer from depression as a result of my f*cked up childhood and my girl knows. But it does NOT matter. We are who we are. Love your child and you will do fine.

    I think except for coloring Kate looks like her dad, Golden has those huge grear expressive eyes and distinct mouth. Am I the only one who sees it. I love Goldie. Her essence. Kate MEH. She’s a bit Hollywood kid for me. Delusional. But glad they love achieve other.

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      Agree. Kate is annoying and useless to me. Nice they have a good relationship though.

    • JustJen says:

      I totally agree. Kate is more generic, Goldie is one of a kind. But- STAHHHP with the fillers!!

  4. Betsy says:

    I love Goldie. I wish she and Dolly Parton would do a movie together. And I would have said Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, too, but their frozen and puffed faces are painful to watch.

  5. annaloo. says:

    Kate’s eyes are always on the camera. Hollywood cracks me up.

  6. Ozogirl says:

    I just love their family and I think Goldie was the most beautiful women in her younger years , but why oh why did she choose that movie and co-star as her comeback? She deserves better.

  7. Brandi says:

    I saw Snatched this weekend with my mom and sister. Not gonna lie, it was not a movie I cared about seeing. It was my mom’s pick. I was pleasantly surprised! We all laughed from beginning to end.

  8. KG says:

    I saw Snatched too not expecting to like it. I was pleasantly surprised. Not what I expected. I thought it was funny.

  9. Rae says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing snatched. I hear people are enjoying it more than the rotten score would make you think.

  10. Alison F says:

    I have noticed whenever, Kate, Goldie, Kurt, Oliver or Wyatt are mentioned in articles or interviews that Kurts son Boston Russell is never mentioned and both he and Goldie raised him along with Oliver and Kate and then had Wyatt together. I know Boston didn’t want to work in the entertainment industry but he shouldn’t be left out of the family. Unless, that has been his request to remain private.

  11. Deeanna says:

    Goldie has obviously found a new facial surgeon. Her photos were appearing in some of those “Ten stars without makeup” photo arrays and she wasn’t looking good at all. Oh, the magic of Hollywood!

    • Rohana says:

      Goldie refused facial cosmetic surgery far longer than most of her contemporaries. She needed it badly for the past 20 yrs, but was not actively in the biz. ( I’m her age, no face work) and was expecting, with the recent new home compound, lifestyle tweaking, and emerging from retirement, we would finally see a new Goldie at the premiere. I was right. I wish she hadn’t been given that much filler in her face, she’s puffed and her face has lost the planes and contours that framed those big expressive baby blues!

  12. Wilder says:

    Goldie looks great in these photos. I saw a pic of her on the cover of a magazine lately, with a big headline about how she’s 71, and I nearly died because of course the photo is so airbrushed that she looks 45. In these photos here, she looks a *little* more her age, although she’s had so much stuff done that she’ll never *really* look as old as she is.
