Kate Hudson tells girls to take a risk
WASHINGTON - Actress-producer Kate Hudson says the pressure of stepping out of the shadow of her movie star mother Goldie Hawn was discouraging and daunting. She advised girls to take a chance on their own talent and take risks as they choose a career path. Hudson spoke at the ANNpower Leadership Forum, a week-long program that unites teens from across the country with women leaders in business, entertainment and nonprofit.
The “Almost Famous’’ star and Ann Taylor spokeswoman is a member of the advisory council that mentors the girls and recommends grants for community projects, from a healthy eating program to a clothing collection drive.
