Kate Hudson says monogamy is tricky business – but she’s still faithful to her hubby.

The Almost Famous Oscar nominee, hot on the promotional trail for her new thriller, The Skeleton Key, opines that marital fidelity isn’t practical – though some folks can pull it off.

“I don’t believe (monogamy) is realistic,” Hudson, 26, tells TV’s Access Hollywood. “But, I believe that we, as people, have the power to make it happen.”

Hudson – who married Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson on Dec. 31, 2000, and welcomed their son, Ryder, Jan. 7, 2004 – was quick to add: “I will not disrespect my husband and stray.”

Asked if she believes Robinson has remained true to her, Hudson answered: “If you focus your attention on that, then you are always wondering if your husband or men are out there cheating on you. … If for some reason, that’s what he has to go do, I just don’t want to know. As long as things are good in our house, just please, don’t get caught.”

Just last September, while shooting Skeleton Key in New Orleans, Hudson told PEOPLE about the state of her marriage in the wake of the arrival of Ryder: “We’re sharing something so gigantic now. I think it’s the best we’ve ever felt being together.”
