KATE HUDSON TALKS RIFT WITH FATHER: Kate Hudson is opening up about her relationship with her family. Speaking to Willie Geist on Sunday Today, she said of her estranged father Bill Hudson: “I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common. I think it's important for people to talk about that. Sometimes we need a little bit of talk and humor to move us into places where we can heal some of the wounds.” She said, “It's a 41-year-old issue,” saying that while she has a “great family,” which includes her mother's longtime love Kurt Russell, not having a relationship with her dad has had a lasting impact on her. “I have a great family, I have a beautiful mother, I have a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in our life, but it doesn't take away from the fact that we didn't know our dad. People sometimes need to hear that they're not alone in that.”
