Why Didn’t Hollywood Work Out For Kate Hudson?

By KK Angus, 28 March 2018


Kate Hudson stormed the film industry when she starred in films like Desert Blue, Almost Famous in the late '90s and early 2000s. And yet, two decades later Kate Hudson's stardom has taken a serious hit. She's a serious looker and obviously talented but she made too many wrong choices especially career-wise. Then of course, she has had quite a lot of issues with her family. In spite of growing up around industry pros Kate couldn't come close to her mom Goldie Hawn's stardom. Here’s why Hollywood needs Kate Hudson anymore.

1In need of a label


Kate, like some of other Hollywood actresses needs a label. Despite being a good actor she's not very versatile and much like Charlize Theron and Anna Hathaway, she never really picked a lane when she started out in Hollywood. She could either be commercially popular like her mom Goldie or could go for indie cred but Kate does not seem to have the ability to multitask like Blake Lively or Scarlett Johansson. And she must have come to the realisation pretty late.

When Kate started out, people refused to take her seriously as she obviously got into Hollywood owing to her mother. And while several other actresses like Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have entered the industry based on nepotism, they have obviously proved their mettle. Kate in spite of having a strong start failed to prove herself time and again.

3Not exactly a trailblazer


If Hollywood has proved anything it's that everyone needs to set their priorities straight. Someone like Angelina Jolie or Julia Roberts can afford to be choosy about roles or experiment and do one film a year. But Kate has always been moderately famous and she doesn't exactly have a tag. She is neither the indie icon nor a commercial success. She is not a wild child and she isn't grounded either. If she needs one thing to make an audience base it's obviously films. But she hardly ever does films anymore and her earlier films were so disappointing, her fans have a hard time defending her stardom.

4Family - too dysfunctional?


Kate has not had a relationship with her father and considers her mother’s longtime boyfriend Kurt Russell to be her dad. She also has a very tricky relationship with her brother Oliver who is also an actor. Her personal life is too cluttered and on top of it, Kate is notoriously private. Her fans want to learn more about her life but have no idea what's going on with her.

5Not a power couple


Kate used to be married to The Muse frontman Matt Bellamy with whom she has a child. But Kate and Matt have always been secretive about their life together. Fans who were excited about their marriage eventually lost interest in them as they hardly ever made appearances together or even put up a front. A Hollywood starlet and a rock star have some serious power couple potential but Kate and Matt were never really interested.
