(August 14, 2006) — Actress Kate Hudson and her husband, The Black Crowes’ singer Chris Robinson, are splitting after nearly six years of marriage, according to People magazine
Hudson, 27, and Robinson, 39, wed on New Year’s Eve 2000 after dating for about a year. Their son, Ryder Russell, was born Jan. 7, 2004.In August 2005, Kate joined Access Hollywood ‘s Billy Bushfor a candid conversation and a bike ride through the streets of New Orleans.
And while Kate led the way on the bikes, Billy steered the conversation.
One of the main topics ? monogamy.
Kate’s mom, actress Goldie Hawn has loudly declared that she believes as a concept, monogamy is not natural.
Then it was up to Billy to find out if the apple fell far from the tree.
“Do you believe that monogamy is unrealistic?” Billy asked Kate. “Can it be done?”
“Absolutely it can be done,” she replied. “Do I believe it’s realistic? No, I don’t.”
“I believe that we as people have the power to make it happen,” she added. “I will not disrespect my husband and stray.”
Billy and Kate also talked about her year-and-a-half old son Ryder.
As it turned out, Kate got some very good advice about raising her child from mom Goldie and mom’s partner, Kurt Russell.
Goldie’s words to Kate?
“Just remember that the second that baby comes out of you, it no longer belongs to you. You no longer possess that child. It’s the best lesson you’ll ever learn as a mother.”
“That is a great philosophy on raising children,” Billy said. “[Goldie] also has a great quote that I’ve been wrestling with as I read, ‘All men cheat. They sow their seed. That’s what they do’? if that’s true then Chris, your husband cheats. I cheat, Kurt cheats.”
“I don?t know,” Kate smiled. “You know what? I just don’t want to know. Just don’t get caught.”
“Come on, you’ve got to be kidding me,” Billy said surprised.
“Don’t get caught,” she laughed.
“Is that your advice to Chris?” Billy asked.
“You know?if you focus your attention on that, you are always wondering if your husband’s out there cheating on you and personally I think if things are happy in the home, we’re having a good time,” she explained. “If for some reason that’s what he has to go do, I just don’t want to know. As long as things are good in our house, please just don’t get caught?To me there is nothing more attractive when I see my husband finding another woman attractive.”
“Really? That doesn’t make you jealous?” Billy wondered.
“No,” Kate smiled.
