Born on April 19: Kate Hudson
Happy Birthday to Kate Hudson! She is 41 years old today. “She rose to prominence for her performance in the film Almost Famous, for which she won a Golden Globe and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.” (Wikipedia) Her other hit roles include How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Bride Wars and Fool’s Gold.
“Hudson considers herself both Jewish and Buddhist, or “Jewbu” if you will. Her Jewish roots are confined to her maternal grandmother’s lineage. From the few interviews I could find where she talked about her spiritual side, she seemed to consider herself Jewish in identity and Buddhist in practice.” (Hollowverse)
