Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson are one of the most famous mother/daughter duos in Hollywood, and they recently opened up about their relationship – which is a lot closer than you might think.
According to People magazine, Hawn and Hudson gave an interview in early February for this year’s “Beautiful issue.” They are on the special issue’s cover, along with Hudson’s 18-month-old daughter, Rani Rose. And, the duo revealed that they are so close, they even talk to each other about sex regularly.
“What did you teach me about sex? There are so many things,” Hudson said while turning to her mom. “We talk a lot about sex. Surprisingly.”
Then, the 74-year-old Hawn recalled a moment she shared with Hudson that took place during a car ride when her daughter was growing up.
“I said, ‘I want you to understand something about Mommy. I’m not a prude. I love sex,’” said the Private Benjamin actress, to which Hudson replied, “Oh, that’s right.”
The 41-year-old added that her mom then told her that sex is “so much fun,” but it’s better when it is with one person. Hudson says that was a “good lesson.” As the How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days actress got older, Hawn changed her approach. Hudson says that her mom tried to engage and ask her what was going on with her sexually.
“I was like, ‘Mom, let’s just say that I’m kind of a sexually-oriented type of personality.’ And she goes, ‘Please, I have known that since you were two years old.’ I was like, ‘Mom!‘” said Hudson.
Their sex talks continued into Hudson’s adulthood, and it still continues to this day. Hudson says that their best conversations happened during Hawn’s workouts. She explained that Hawn used to have a trainer, and every day she was drinking wheatgrass and doing aqua aerobics.
Hudson also mentioned a piece of exercise equipment that her mom used to have – a StairMaster. Hawn says it’s not what you say, it’s what you do. And, she believes that when parents behave the way they are speaking, then they are showing their kids how to live.
Hudson says her mom was constantly moving, so it was a challenge to slow her down and have a conversation. Eventually, Hudson figured out that she could sit while her mom was exercising, and that’s when she could really talk to her mom.
Goldie Hawn agreed that she was always getting out and moving, describing herself as “very kinetic.” Kate Hudson says that once they had an entire conversation about men while her mom was working out, and she thought to herself: “Wow, that’s my mom.”
