Kate Hudson found it 'really fun' working opposite her step-father Kurt Russell
Kate Hudson has found it "really fun" working with her step-dad Kurt Russell in 'Deepwater Horizon'.
The 37-year-old American actress, who plays the role of Felicia Williams in the new disaster thriller film based on the real-life oil rig disaster of 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico, has admitted she enjoyed shooting scenes with her relative who was cast as Jimmy Harrell, although she didn't think the production team realised their connection.
Speaking to chat show host Lorraine Kelly on her breakfast show 'Lorraine' on Tuesday (27.09.16) about the cast, the blonde beauty - who is the daughter of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson - said: "As much of a fan as I am and as much as I admire him as an actor I am able to separate it. They hired us, or asked if we would do it, it was sort of simultaneous and I always wondered like, did it even hit them ... because usually people [make the connection] with mom, my mom is Goldie [Hawn] you know and it was really fun for us to be in a working environment together."
Hudson - who stars appear onscreen alongside Mark Wahlberg, Dylan O'Brien and John Malkovich in the movie - has admitted having a healthy relationship with her father has helped her to develop her wisdom.
She explained: "I don't know if it's advice as much as it is parenting, as you get older I think it's just talking about your life isn't it? Any parent/child healthy relationship is going to impart wisdom."
Meanwhile, the 'Fool's Gold' star has revealed it felt good paying tribute to the people who worked on the oil rig and risked their lives.
Speaking about her new film, she said: "We all know it was just a horrendous environmental catastrophe that is still relevant. There were all so many wonderful people on this rig that were going to work every day and paying the bills and doing a very high risk job, that was a horrible accident and it was nice to pay homage to them. With this we all know what the outcome was but when you're watching the movie you get so involved in it because all of a sudden you feel like you are there."
