Kate Hudson says her ‘whirlwind’ marriage at age 21 ‘wasn’t a mistake’

Kate Hudson opens up about her “whirlwind” marriage to her “first true love,” musician Chris Robinson.

Hudson said the two first connected when she was just 19, and that he was just “a not-very-nice kind of rock star.”

“I remember thinking ‘God, it was so bad,'” the “Glass Onion” star said during an interview on Alex Cooper’s “Call Her Daddy” podcast that aired Wednesday. “And then I met him again when I was 20, and he wasn’t that bad; I must have caught him on a bad night or something.”

The two got engaged within four months of dating and married just nine months later, Hudson said. Three years into their relationship, Hudson said she “wanted to have a baby” and the two had their only child together, Ryder.

“And then it started to go into a downward spiral,” Hudson said.

But despite their quick courtship, Hudson said she “didn’t question it for a second.”

“We were so connected,” Hudson said of his time with The Black Crowes frontman. “Chris taught me a lot about love and connection, and it was a wonderfully passionate relationship.”

When Cooper asked if anyone had pressured her not to get married at just 21 years old, Hudson said that people in her life “let people make mistakes,” before quickly clarifying that the marriage “wasn’t a mistake.”

“Right now I look back at my whole life and think, I actually feel like I could have done well, you know?” Hudson said.

The Fabletics co-founder previously spoke about why she didn’t hesitate to get married at such a young age.

“I just jump into the background of everything I do. People thought he was impulsive, but I was like, ‘You know what? I’m going to dive right into this,’” he said during an appearance on “The World’s First Podcast” last year.

”’I’m not going to doubt it. “I’m in love with him,” she added. “I’m not going to pretend: Oh, we should wait. “I’m madly in love and I want to marry him,’ so I didn’t think twice.”

Hudson and Robinson divorced in 2007. The Golden Globe winner later became engaged to another musician, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy. The two, who split in 2014, also share a 13-year-old son named Bingham.

The “Almost Famous” actor is currently engaged to producer Danny Fujikawa, whom he began dating in 2016. The two have a daughter named Rani, who is 5 years old.
