After their parent's divorce, Kate and her brother, Oliver, were raised in Colorado, by their mother, Goldie Hawn, and her life partner, Kurt Russell. Her biological father remained absent for most of Kate's childhood, and this fact has caused an estrangement between the two that still exists to this day. She has even been quoted as saying that her biological father "doesn't know her from a hole in the wall" and she has made it clear on several occasions that she considers Kurt Russell to be her father, since he is the only father she has ever really known, and has always referred to him as “Pa”.

To further prove her desire to become a successful actress without her families assistance, Kate Hudson did not give up when she did not get a part in Kurt Russell's film "Escape From L.A." She went on to get a few small roles on several sitcoms, which none of these gigs really worked out for her.
