KATE HUDSON AND CHRIS MARTIN
New couple alert … or just friends? The newly single Kate Hudson and Chris Martin sparked lots of rumors when the duo was spotted at the beach with their kids on March 14, 2015. The 35-year-old mother-of-two put her svelte figure on display in a two-piece bikini and soaked up the sun with Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin in Malibu, California.
Hudson has stated that her biological father «doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall», and that she considers Russell her father. Her biological father indicated that though he had made several efforts to connect with Kate and Oliver, neither reciprocated. Hudson has described her mother as «the woman that I’ve learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to». She has four half-siblings: Emily and Zachary Hudson, from her biological father’s later marriage to actress Cindy Williams; Lalania Hudson, from his relationship with another woman; and Wyatt Russell, from her mother’s relationship with Kurt Russell.
Hudson’s ancestry is Italian (from her paternal grandmother), Hungarian Jewish (from her maternal grandmother), and the remainder a mix of English and some German. She was raised Jewish. In 1997, she graduated from Crossroads, a college preparatory school in Santa Monica. She was accepted to New York University but chose to pursue an acting career instead of an undergraduate degree.
