In the midst of a media storm surrounding the premiere of Nine, not to mention her break-up from from Yankee baseball star Alex Rodriguez, Kate Hudson took time to have a long, quiet dinner with the two people she always turns to — her parents Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.
On Dec. 14, Kate, Goldie, and Kurt ate at one of their regular spots, the high-end NYC Italian eatery Strata 57 on W. 57 St. One spy there told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Kate looked happy but intense. She spend the evening having an long, serious conversation with her parents.”
During the two and a half hour dinner, Kate barely picked at her salad, but drank a dirty martini and split a bottle of Brunello Di Montalcino red wine with her parents, who each had a light dinner of soup and salad. The trio left around 10 pm, so that Kate could tape Late Night With Jimmy Fallon at nearby 30 Rockefeller Center.
Kate has always been open about her closeness to her parents. She once said, “My mom’s great. She knows when to be and to be a mother.” She also told 20/20 in 2004, “There’s so much to learn from [Goldie]. She creates this energy around her that is so magnetic. And with everything that she is — the most important thing [to her] is being a mom.”
In the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar she opened up about her parents as well: “Growing up, my family had a no judgement policy. We were never afraid of letting the wrong person in.” She also told the mag that her parents have taught her to love unconditionally. ”No matter how many times my heart breaks, I’ll never be any different,” Kate confessed. So what about you? Do you turn to your parents when you are going through a tough time? —Corynne Steindler & Chloe Melas
