November 10, 2017 GMT

Kate Hudson insists ‘Almost Famous’ is still cool almost 20 years on after recently rewatching it with her son.

The 38-year-old actress starred as Penny Lane alongside Billy Crudup and Patrick Fugit in the 2000 comedy drama - which earned her an Academy Award nomination in the Best Actress in a Supporting Role category - and she has thinks Cameron Crowe’s movie has stood the test of time after watching it with her 13-year-old son Ryder, who she has from her marriage to Chris Robinson.

During her appearance on ‘Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen’ on Tuesday (07.11.17) evening, Kate said: “It holds up. I just watched it with Ryder not too long ago.


“It was really cool to watch that because I hadn’t seen that in so long and it’s still cool. Ryder, he’s 13, so to him it was like, he loved every second of that movie. It’s cool to be a part of a movie like that.”

Despite her love for the movie, Kate has admitted she wouldn’t want to risk ruining its legacy with a sequel, even if she’d have a great time making it.

She explained: “I would say a sequel to - I got a couple. ‘Almost Famous’ would be fun, but I wouldn’t wanna touch that. But maybe [‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’]. That would be fun.”

Meanwhile, the actress - who also has six-year-old son Bingham from her previous relationship with Muse’s Matt Bellamy - has decided to take a huge step back from her acting career over the past few months because nothing has cropped up that has convinced her to spend an extended period of time away from her boys.

She recently explained: “If I’m going to make a movie, it has to be one I really want to do if it means being away from my family for any length of time. When I have to be on a set at 5:30am, I never want to be thinking: ‘What am I doing here when I could be making my kids breakfast?’”
