Kate Hudson        

Actress Known For "Almost Famous" & Co-Founder of Fabletics

Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson made her studio film debut in "200 Cigarettes," co-starring with Ben Affleck, Courtney Love and Paul Rudd. Her early films also included "Desert Blue," centered around a toxic chemical scare in a remote tourist trap in California, and "Gossip," a psychological drama about the deadly power of rumors set on a college campus, featuring James Marsden, Norman Reedus and Joshua Jackson.

However, it was her career-making performance in Cameron Crowe’s "Almost Famous" that won the hearts of critics and moviegoers around the world. Her touching portrayal of “band aid” Penny Lane earned her a Golden Globe Award, an Academy Award nomination as Best Supporting Actress and a BAFTA nomination, among numerous other honors and recognitions, including the Broadcast Film Critics’ Award for Breakthrough Performance.

Hudson achieved global box office success starring opposite Matthew McConaughey in the hit romantic comedy, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," which earned over $200 million at the box office worldwide. She starred in the comedy, "You, Me and Dupree," opposite Owen Wilson, Matt Dillon and Michael Douglas, which grossed over $100 million worldwide and, in early 2008, re-teamed with Matthew McConaughey in "Fool’s Gold," which was another worldwide box-office hit. She appeared alongside Dane Cook and Jason Biggs in "My Best Friend’s Girl" and starred opposite Anne Hathaway in "Bride Wars," which also marked her debut as a producer.

In 2007, Hudson made her directorial debut with the short film, “Cutlass,” as part of Glamour magazine’s “Reel Moments,” with first-time female directors working from readers’ personal essays. “Cutlass” starred Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Virginia Madsen, Chevy Chase and a then-unknown Kristen Stewart. In the 2017 film "Marshall," and in 2019, she starred in "Blood Moon," a fantasy-adventure film by writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour. She co-starred in a film directed by Sia called "Music." She received her second Golden Globe nomination for her work on the film.

In 2013, Hudson co-founded Fabletics, a line of functional, comfortable, stylish and affordable active wear designed to inspire women to empower themselves by getting active and taking care of themselves; not as a fad or a quick fix, but as a way of living that promotes health, community, determination, passion and joy. In June 2015, Hudson and Fabletics introduced FL2, a line of high-performance athletic wear and lifestyle essentials for men. In 2015, the company began to launch retail stores, which continue to roll out across the U.S.

In February 2016, Kate become a New York Times best-selling author when she published "Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body," offering health and wellness inspiration and motivation for women, and addressing fitness, nutrition and a mindful lifestyle. She released her second book, "Pretty Fun: Creating and Celebrating a Lifetime of Tradition."
