‘We talk a lot about sex’: Kate Hudson says there is nothing off-limits when talking to her mother Goldie Hawn
Goldie recalled telling a very young Kate: "I want you to understand something about Mommy. I’m not a prude. I love sex"
It seems Kate Hudson and mother Goldie Hawn do not shy away from discussing anything from each other, not even sex, a topic not many are comfortable taking up with their parents. However, in this gorgeous mother-duo relationship, that is not the case.
Kate along with her 74-year-old mother and 18-month-old daughter Rani Rose has graced this year’s PEOPLE’s cover of ‘The Beautiful Issue’. The trio looked breathtakingly beautiful in white. They also gave insight into their relationship as they talked to the magazine in early February at their photoshoot in Los Angeles, California.
They were photographed by Coliena Rentmeester before the coronavirus lockdown started.
“What did you teach me about sex? There are so many things. We talk a lot about sex. Surprisingly,” the 41-year-old said while looking at her actress mother. Goldie also contributed to the discussion as she recalled being in the car when her daughter was young: “I said, ‘I want you to understand something about Mommy. I’m not a prude. I love sex.'”
To which Kate replied: “Oh, that’s right. And then she said, ‘Sex is so much fun. But it’s better when it’s with one person.’ And that was a good lesson.”
The ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ star also recalled how her mother broached the subject in a different light. She said, “You were trying to engage and asking like what was going on with me 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!‘”
Kate also mentioned that some of the mother-daughter duo’s best conversations happened while Goldie was exercising. “Mom had this trainer. And you were drinking wheatgrass every morning and you’d do aqua aerobics,” she stated. “Remember the StairMaster? It’s not what you say, it’s what you do. Right?” said Goldie, adding: “As a parent, as long as we actually behave the way that we are speaking, then we’re showing them.”
The ‘Almost Famous’ star also remembered how she used to constantly bother her mother with her questions. “I was always like ‘Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom. Mom! Mom. You know, she was just constantly moving. I’d sit and that’s when I could really talk to Mom when she was working out. Once we had a whole conversation about men. And I sat there like, ‘Wow, that’s my mom.'”
Meanwhile, as per reports, PEOPLE is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its special issue by featuring the three generations on their cover, titled, ‘Love, Family & True Beauty.’ Goldie took to Instagram to share the cover photo as she captioned the image: “Thank you @people for bringing us together for this issue! Family and extended family are the treasures we hold so dear to our hearts ❤️. The love we share is fortifying especially in these difficult times. There is a comfort knowing we are there to support and comfort each other. May we all find beauty in our hearts.”
