Kate Hudson provided a sultry pose on the cover of Glamour magazine's April 2013 issue. The Glee actress is topless with multiple strands of beaded necklaces to cover her bare chest and wears a pair of blue jeans for the shot taken against the sunny blue skies.
Hudson, 33, was interviewed for the cover story by Mira Nair, the director of her next film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist.
Hudson discussd why she is so trusting and authentic in the shady film industry in Hollywood.
"The reason I trust so much is that I don't feel like I have anything to hide. If somebody betrays that trust, it could never be so bad, because I don't keep any secrets," Hudson told Nair. "I've had friends who've lied to me, I've had friends who've done things behind my back, I've had people steal from me-and it doesn't stop me from trusting."
Hudson had her first son, nine-year-old Ryder, during her previous marriage to rocker Chris Robinson. She also has a 1-year-old son Bing with her fiance', Muse front man Matthew Bellamy. She talked about the differences between her two boys.
"[Bing's] sprinting! And he's got a natural mullet, which I'm cutting soon. It's growing only in the back, so we in the family say he takes after my Gogie-you know, Kurt [Russell]- because Kurt was a mullet guy in the eighties. Bing's been singing too. He loves music," she said about the younger child. "And Ryder is the coolest cat-an amazing big brother, so patient and tolerant. Bing pulls his hair, and Ryder just laughs. He's such a good person. I couldn't be a prouder mommy."
Hudson shared that her mother, legendary actress Goldie Hawn, has given her advice on how to balance career and family.
"I have always been fiery; I go after things. But what I learned from my mother [Goldie Hawn] is to step back and actually experience things that are happening. So for me, it's about meditating. My Everest is to have that become a real part of my life."
In addition to appearing on Glee and promoting the release of her upcoming film, Hudson has kept herself busy with her hands in fashion. She extended her contract with Ann Taylor and will do more than lend her face- she will serve as a guest designer for an upcoming collection. The line, called Kate Hudson x Ann Taylor will arrive in the company's stores in May.
