Kate Hudson still "doesn't really have" a relationship with her father.

The 45-year-old actress is the daughter of Hollywood star Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson but has become somewhat estranged from the singer over the years and admitted that things are "warming up" now but they're still not perfect.

Speaking on 'CBS Sunday Mornings', she said: "I don’t really have one. But it’s — it’s warming up. There’s warming up with this all happening. But it’ll be whatever it will be, you know. I have — I have no expectation of that with my father, you know. I just want him to be happy."

Goldie and Bill divorced in 1982 and she went on to a relationship with Kurt Russell, with Kate explaining in 2021 that being estranged from a parent had become "quite common" across the world but she had found a "dependable figure" in her stepfather.

She told 'Today': "I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common.

"I think it's important for people to talk about that. If they can't reconnect or if it's too challenging, that it's OK, right?

"It's a 41-year-old issue. 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."

Despite their estrangement, the 'Almost Famous' star still loves her dad but is happy to speak about their difficulties to give comfort to others going through similar situations.

She added: "I think as I've sort of gone through that process ... I kind of look at my dad and I'm, like, 'You know, the love has never ever gone anywhere. It's always been there, no matter what those complications have been.
