In the early 2000s, Kate Hudson was one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, having starred in a string of hit films including ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ and ‘Almost Famous’. But despite her rising star status, Hudson recently revealed that she was passed over for a role in the 2001 film ‘The Others’, which went to Nicole Kidman instead.
Speaking to Variety, Hudson said that she was in the running for the lead role in ‘The Others’, a horror film about a family living in an isolated house who are haunted by strange occurrences. However, the part eventually went to Kidman, who was in her mid-30s at the time.
“I was up for the role,” Hudson said. “They went way older.”
Hudson, who was in her early 20s at the time, said that she was disappointed to lose out on the role, but she was also understanding of the decision. After all, the character in the film was a mother of two, and Hudson felt that Kidman was better suited to the part.
“I was bummed out, but I understood it,” she said. “I wasn’t a mom yet.”
Hudson went on to say that she was a huge fan of Kidman’s performance in the film, which was a critical and commercial success. She also praised the actress for her ability to take on challenging roles, noting that Kidman has “always been so daring and courageous” in her choices.
While Hudson may have lost out on the role of a lifetime, she has gone on to have a successful career in Hollywood, with numerous awards and accolades under her belt. She also recently starred in the hit Netflix series ‘The Morning Show’ alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
At the end of the day, Hudson said that she has no regrets about the role she lost to Kidman, and she is grateful for the opportunities she has had since then.
“I’ve been so lucky,” she said. “I’ve been able to do what I love, and I’m thankful for that.”
