Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson made her studio film debut in 200 Cigarettes, co-starring with Ben Affleck, Courtney Love and Paul Rudd. Directed by Risa Bramon Garcia, Kate’s performance in the comedy – set in New York’s East Village on New Years Eve, 1981 – was singled out by critics across the boards.
Her early films also included Desert Blue, centered around a toxic chemical scare in a remote tourist trap in California with Christina Ricci and Casey Affleck and Warner Bros.’ Gossip, a psychological drama about the deadly power of rumors set on a college campus, featuring James Marsden, Norman Reedus and Joshua Jackson.
However, it was her career-making performance in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous that won the hearts of critics and moviegoers around the world.

Critics were unanimous in their praise of Kate’s performance: “Her work is delicate, authentic and accomplished…” (Los Angeles Times); “A phenomenal debut” (Wall Street Journal); “Hudson signals with her radiant turn here that she’s ready for major stardom” (People Magazine) and “a nuanced, star-making performance” (New York Post).
In Robert Altman’s Dr. T and the Women, Kate was part of an all-star cast, including Richard Gere, Helen Hunt, Laura Dern, Liv Tyler and Farrah Fawcett. She perfected an Irish brogue for the Miramax romantic comedy, About Adam, playing an unlucky-in-love singer/waitress who falls for a charming young man who mesmerizes her entire family and played a young Englishwoman opposite Heath Ledger and Wes Bentley in the period remake of The Four Feathers, filmed in London with director Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth).

Her show-stopping number, “Cinema Italiano,” was written specifically for the film, with her in mind. She followed that with a chilling turn in Michael Winterbottom’s provocative noir thriller, The Killer Inside Me, with Casey Affleck and Jessica Alba.
