Kate Hudson 'surprisingly strict' with sons

Kate Hudson is "surprisingly strict" when it comes to her children.

The 37-year-old actress - who has Ryder, 12, with her ex-husband Chris Robinson and four-year-old Bingham with her former fiancé Matt Bellamy - endeavours to teach her children the importance of manners.

Speaking to reporters at the New York screening of her new movie 'Mother's Day', she said: "I'm surprisingly strict sometimes but pretty easygoing when it comes to TV stuff, video games ... I'm really more about how they're treating people, politeness and manners.

"I'm a good pointer. I point - you go there, you do this - I have to go do that. I'm doing an okay job, my kids are happy."

Meanwhile, the 'Bride Wars' star previously admitted she is a bit of a "wild mom".

She explained: "I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder. So, our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we're close, and I am his mom. I'm big on manners. I'm big on politeness. I'm big on gratitude. But I'm a bit of a wild mom ...

"Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don't have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realise I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children ... [But] I wouldn't be the best mom I could be if I didn't follow my creative endeavours. I would feel an emptiness that would be felt in our home. So a stay-at-home mom will never be my life and that will never be my kids' experience of me."
