Goldie Hawn wants to make more feel-good, female-focused Hollywood movies.

The actress was the leading lady in hit comedies including Private Benjamin, Wildcats, and Overboard during the 1980s, and she thinks that there needs to be more focus on funny women these days.

“(The 80s) were a great period of abandonment, great music, great fun. A lot of the movies that we made then were feel-good movies. They don’t make them much anymore,” Goldie told British newspaper The Guardian. “(They were) very, very, very funny, but they were also really about something. I produced a lot of movies, and I was always interested in the situations that women had to deal with.”

The 74-year-old shared that women were her “obvious focus” in the movies she produced, because she wanted to show that it wasn’t always easy “having power and being female.”

She added: “That’s the way it was. It wasn’t that all men were terrible or that the situation was unbearable. It was a cultural problem.”

Elsewhere in the interview, she opened up about why her career stalled for 15 years once she hit her 50s, and revealed that she made the decision to stop chasing roles.

“I wasn’t going to wait for a phone to ring. And I certainly wasn’t going to continue to produce, because I produced for like 25 years and I didn’t want to do that anymore. I’d done it, I did it, it was done. Great, but now it’s time to move on,” she recalled.

Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson, and her baby daughter Rani Rose have been tapped to star on the cover of People magazine’s annual The Beautiful Issue.

The famous mother-and-daughter duo wore white for the ethereal photoshoot, and in the accompanying interview, they discussed how they’re tackling the current restrictions while in lockdown in Los Angeles.

“It’s definitely an interesting time for reflecting on what is truly important,” the 41-year-old actress told the outlet, as she practices social distancing and self-isolation at home with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, and her sons Ryder, 16, and eight-year-old Bing.

And Goldie credits focusing on “meditation, nurturing, loving kindness for all in my heart and staying safe inside” as she stays at home with her partner of 37 years, Kurt Russell.

Elsewhere in the interview, Kate revealed how her mother had taught her how to be confident from a young age, and gave her the tools to have faith in her decisions.

“My mom gave me the floor to be able to feel confident enough to go out and feel like my life could be my own,” the Almost Famous star explained. “Mom was my greatest cheerleader. And it just made me think about Rani… going, ‘I hope I give her that kind of confidence,’ you know?”

And she’s thankful for the 74-year-old Hollywood icon for giving her good advice, and encouraging her how to succeed on her own.

“Mom always said to me, ‘Don’t you ever let a man dim your light,'” Kate recalled. “So, I’ve never defined myself through the way a man sees me, but I can define myself in the unit that we can create together. That is what mom gave to me.”

Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton are reuniting for upcoming movie, Family Jewels.

The movie is set to be a multi-generational comedy that follows three women forced to spend Christmas together, along with their kids and grandchildren, after the man they were once married to drops dead in a New York City department store.

Screenwriter Peter Hoare penned the script, with Brian Oliver, Bradley Fischer, and Alan Nevins to produce, and Tracey Nyberg to serve as executive producer.

“The chemistry of Diane, Bette, and Goldie is unmatched and irresistible, and I’m thrilled to help reunite them on screen for generations of fans,” Fischer said in a statement.

Production is set to start this year. However, a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Nevins added that he and Fischer had been desperately vying for the Brooklyn-based writer for months.

“Brad and I always wanted Peter for this project but he was constantly busy,” he noted. “To our great joy, after the Cannes sale, we were able to get the three of us united. I, and the public, have waited many years for these three ladies to star in another film together.”

The movie will be the first time Hawn, Midler, and Keaton have worked together since the much-loved 1996 comedy, The First Wives Club. In the film, the trio played three ex-wives, who were dumped by their husbands for younger women.

Hoare is in-demand in Hollywood at the moment after a successful stint pitching his film, Down Under Cover – set to star Chris Hemsworth and Tiffany Haddish – at the Cannes Film Festival in May last year.

Paramount executives picked up the flick, which sees a detective and a police officer team up to investigate a string of robberies.

Tyrese Gibson is to star alongside Kurt Russell in Netflix’s festive sequel, The Christmas Chronicles 2.

The Fast and the Furious actor joins a cast which includes Kurt as Santa Claus, his real-life partner Goldie Hawn as Mrs. Claus, Darby Camp and Judah Lewis as the children Santa befriends, and Kimberly Williams-Paisley as their widowed mother Claire.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tyrese will portray Claire’s new boyfriend. The actor shared the casting news on Instagram alongside the caption: “God has officially blown my mind!”

In addition, Darlene Love, who is known for appearing in the Lethal Weapon movies and for singing festive classic Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), has also joined the cast in an unknown role.

In the first film, which was a surprise hit for the streaming service in 2018, the children, Kate and Teddy, get more than they bargained for when they plan to capture Santa on camera on Christmas Eve. In the sequel, Kate, who is now a cynical teenager, is unexpectedly reunited with Santa when a mysterious and magical being named Belsnickel threatens to destroy Christmas forever.

Chris Columbus, who produced the original film, is directing the sequel from a script he co-wrote with Matt Lieberman. He is also producing with Mark Radcliffe and Michael Barnathan.

Goldie, who had a cameo in the first one, announced the sequel in an Instagram post earlier in December. Filming is now underway with the aim of being ready for next Christmas.

Tyrese was recently seen in police thriller Black and Blue and is gearing up for a big 2020, in which he will reprise his role as Roman in Fast & Furious 9 and appear in Sony’s Marvel movie Morbius, which stars Jared Leto.

Kate Hudson ‘took a bit longer’ to lose weight after birth of daughter

Kate Hudson “took a bit longer” to lose the baby weight after welcoming her daughter Rani Rose.

The actress gave birth to the tot – her first child with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa – in October 2018.

In a new interview with People, Kate opened up about her life with three children and noted that she decided to adopt a different method when it was time to get back into shape.

“This one took a little bit longer. It was like 12 months, but I did it differently,” Kate, who is also mother to sons Ryder, 15, and eight-year-old Bingham, stated.

The Almost Famous star went on to explain that she chose to follow a plan by WW, formally known as Weight Watchers, in a bid to lose the weight. And the regime really worked for her.

“It was a smarter way to take (the) weight off, because it stays off,” the 40-year-old commented. “I think the wonderful thing about what that is, is you can eat what you want, you just have to be conscious. It teaches you about food.”

The WW ambassador took six months to lose weight after having her son Bing and added that her approach to food is now very similar to how her parents – Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell – raised her.

“I really understand food,” she shared. “I understand what I’m putting in my body, I grew up like that. My parents are who taught me about that. But there’s a lot of people out there who don’t have that relationship to food.”

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are reteaming as Santa and Mrs. Claus for a sequel to last year’s hit Netflix movie The Christmas Chronicles.

The Death Becomes Her actress took to Instagram on Friday to announce she and her longtime partner will be back as the Clauses in The Christmas Chronicles 2 at the end of next year.

“A year later and I’m still ringing Santa’s jingle bells,” the 74-year-old cheekily captioned a shot of the couple in their matching outfits posing in front of a snowy backdrop. “I couldn’t be happier to be working on @christmaschronicles again with Kurt Russell, my real life Santa @netflix 2020.”

Goldie appeared as Mrs. Claus in a surprise cameo at the end of the 2018 movie.

The Christmas Chronicles was a huge hit for the streaming service, and followed Kurt’s wisecracking Santa Claus as he took siblings Kate and Teddy Pierce, played by Darby Camp and Judah Lewis, on a whirlwind adventure to try and save the festive holiday.

Directed by Clay Kaytis, it also starred Goldie’s real-life son Oliver Hudson as well as Lamorne Morris and Kimberly Williams-Paisley.

And in next year’s new film, Santa Claus reteams with Kate, now a teenager, to battle a mythical troublemaker named Belsnickel, who will be played by Deadpool 2 star Julian Dennison.

Director Chris Columbus will helm the sequel, after serving as a producer on the original.

Goldie’s daughter Kate Hudson showed her support for the sequel on her mother’s Instagram post with a series of emojis, including a love heart.

Kate Hudson’s boyfriend Danny Fujikawa chose the name for her new fashion venture.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress is no stranger to the clothing industry, having launched activewear line Fabletics in partnership with JustFab in 2013 and worked with New York & Company as an ambassador for the clothing brand’s Soho Jeans collection.

In March, Kate also announced she was gearing up to unveil the Happy x Nature line, featuring organic and recycled fabrics, and in a new interview with The Telegraph, she credited her musician beau with dreaming up the name of the label.

‘He said, ‘That’s what people think you are, happy by nature,”‘ she recalled. “And I understand why people would associate me with that idea. The reality is that contentment is a discipline. Happiness is something that we cultivate. But I like the idea that nature can make us happy and can bring us joy. It works on lots of levels.”

The Happy x Nature collection is comprised of floral printed dresses, denim garments, boho-chic dresses, and T-shirts. Kate and the design team are endeavouring for the line to be as eco-aware as possible, right down to the fabric tags and biodegradable bags, as promoting sustainability is very important to the star.

“I love fashion and I always have, but the more you get involved in it, the more you see how irresponsible the industry has been with waste. We’ve spent so long thinking that ‘more’ means more luxurious, when we need to start thinking that simplicity is more beautiful. It’s time to start being more responsible,” the 40-year-old commented.

Elsewhere in the chat, Kate shared that she had named one item in the range – a strapless, tiered dress, after her mother – Hollywood icon Goldie Hawn.

Maddie Ziegler has been welcomed into the Fabletics family after co-designing a new line for Kate Hudson’s sporty brand.

Dropping on Friday, the Maddie X Fabletics collection features leggings and T-shirts, and the Dance Moms star happily models some of her designs in a campaign video, which she uploaded to her 13 million followers.

Decked out in pink leggings and a grey T-shirt tied up at the back, the 16-year-old shows off her moves in the promo clip.

She follows in the footsteps of Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn in teaming up with the activewear label.

The official Fabletics account also shared the news, writing “#MaddieXFabletics available June 7 @maddieziegler,” next to a second video of the dancer.

Maddie rose to fame as a child on Lifetime’s reality show Dance Moms but became a global star after Australian singer Sia began working with her in 2014, casting her in a string of her music videos, including Chandelier, Elastic Heart and Big Girls Cry.

In recent years, the teenager has moved into acting, landing parts in The Book of Henry and animated flick Ballerina, as well as the upcoming West Side Story remake and Sia’s big screen directorial debut, Music, which also stars Kate.

In a previous chat with Cosmopolitan, Kate revealed how close she and Sia had become during filming.

“Working with Sia on a special project and knowing that no matter what, I will always have a lifelong friend in her,” she gushed.

Music, which also stars Leslie Odom Jr. and Hector Elizondo, is due out later this year.

Goldie Hawn was a fan of Kurt Russell’s Santa Claus beard.

The Hollywood heavyweight plays Chris Kringle in festive film The Christmas Chronicles, and instead of sticking fake fuzz on his face, Kurt opted to grow his very own white beard.

And luckily Goldie, his partner of 35 years, was happy for him to bring his new look home.

“It was full on and took about four months to grow,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Goldie hated the look I had for The Hateful Eight – actually I hated it too – but she was much better with the big Santa beard.”

As well as sporting a long handlebar moustache for Quentin Tarantino’s 2015 western The Hateful Eight, Kurt has also grown his facial hair out for films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Deepwater Horizon, and ’80 sci-fi flick The Thing.

But it was the look for The Hateful Eight that the 67-year-old found the hardest to deal with.

“The buffalo jacket and a big moustache were Quentin,” Kurt previously shared in an interview for Details magazine. “It’s a big look, a moustache wearing a man. I put a lot of stock in appearance.”

He also wore his hair long for the part of bounty hunter John Ruth, which had a direct impact on another film he shot around that time, Bone Tomahawk.

“For this guy here (Sheriff Hunt), I had to do a different version of him because I was getting ready for The Hateful Eight,” he said. “I would have changed my look significantly for this one. I would’ve had much shorter hair.”

New mum Kate Hudson files copyright lawsuit to protect leisurewear brand

Kate Hudson has hit bosses at FabCrate with a new lawsuit, insisting their name is too similar to her brand Fabletics.

The new mum founded the business in 2013 and offers a subscription service providing women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, while selling direct through 22 Fabletics stores in the U.S.

Hudson believes FabCrate is confusing customers, not just because of its title but because a similar subscription service is offered by those running the brand. FabCrate, which debuted in 2017, distributes similar items in curated crates.

According to The Blast, executives at Fabletics claim they reached out to the heads of the lifestyle seller to try and resolve the issue but they were “unresponsive”.

In the lawsuit, it is also alleged that workers at FabCrate are not following proper procedure and law for operating their business and are therefore causing damage to the lifestyle industry. In the filing, the FabCrate creators have been asked to cease operation immediately and turn over their profits.

Though Hudson maintains the existence of FabCrate is damaging to her brand, Fabletics has had a highly profitable run since its launch. According to Forbes, the company is currently valued at $250 million (£190 million).

Hudson developed the brand along with entrepreneurs Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, who serves as Chief Executive Officer.

Earlier this month, the Almost Famous star teamed up with her mother, Goldie Hawn, for a clothing line released under the brand that served to raise funds for the Snatched star’s mental health charity, MindUP.

The collection was unveiled just before the 39 year old gave birth to daughter Rani Rose on 2 October (18).
