Kate Hudson says relationships can be “challenging things”

Kate Hudson recently shared her thoughts on relationships and how they can be one of “the most challenging things”.

The 35-year-old actress who is currently engaged to Muse’s lead singer Matt Bellamy, spoke of how relationships are “where you do the most work in your life”.

Kate said most relationships work, if both parties are willing to come face to face with themselves and work together.

“You come face-to-face with yourself, and if you can deal with realizing we’re all flawed, accept it and work with it, you might have a really amazing, lasting relationship.”

Hudson also said she looks to her parents, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell for advice, as they’ve been married for 30 years.

“I’d say no matter what they’ve been through, they share similar values and really like each other. It sounds easy, but it’s not.”

Kate said that Goldie gave her important advice, when it comes to balancing friendships and relationships.

“My mum once said something so poignant to me: ‘Honour your female friendships, because men can come and go, but when we nurture our relationships with women, they can be forever’. I really believe that. My girlfriends are so important to me. They’ve been my rock-solid foundation.”
