Hollywood actress and avid skier Kate Hudson plays an American fashion
journalist in “Nine,” a musical film currently in post-production that
is scheduled for release November 25. It is her first role since
producing her first film “Bride Wars,” in which she also co-starred
with Anne Hathaway.

Hudson, 28, comes from a big skiing family and admits she was fearless
as a child, heli-skiing and bungee jumping in Aspen, Colorado. As kids
she and her brothers were regulars on black runs in the Rockies but
nowadays Hudson is content with an occasional mogul run at Snowmass,
Ajax or Telluride. She married The Black Crowes lead singer Chris
Robinson in Aspen, Colorado, nine years ago and they divorced in 2007.

Hudson, who has followed in the footsteps of her mother Goldie Hawn
and stepfather Kurt Russell, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress
in 2001 for her role as Penny Lane in “Almost Famous.” Her credits
include the romantic comedies “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days” and
“Fool’s Gold.”
