Actress Kate Hudson ("Almost Famous") congratulated her mother Goldie Hawn ("The Devils' Club") on her 77th birthday with shared photos and an extensive declaration of love. "I wonder if God knew what the stars concocted to create this brilliant light?" the 43-year-old wrote of Hawn on Instagram. She has an out-of-this-world zest for life and a cheerful spirit, Hudson said.
The grandmother of six Hawn, who won the Oscar for best supporting actress in 1969 at the age of 24 for her first film role in "The Cactus Flower", reacted to her daughter's post with her own declaration of love: "Your message brought tears to my eyes. Your beautiful words penetrated my soul," she wrote. "I love you with all my heart." Kate Hudson and her brother Oliver are from Hawn's previous marriage to Bill Hudson. Hawn has been with Kurt Russell since 1983 and has one other son with him.
