With a 4 ½-year-old son at home and known for playing sweet, loving characters in countless movies, Kate Hudson is often depicted as the girl-next-door. The actress however, begs to differ as she admits that "now that I have a son, I don’t do it as often on a day-to-day basis," but the 29-year-old has been known to "throw out some bad words every once in awhile." While Kate, who was thankful for a role where she felt like she could "say the inappropriate things that I say sometimes in real life" in her new movie, My Best Friends Girl, she credits the time she spends with her son Ryder Russell as being her real center in life. Soaking up all of the time she has off to enjoy her every day life with her only child, she shares that it provides a "pretty good balance" when she is then faced with phases of "working 18 hours and feeling guilty about not being able to be home and be a mother."

Kate’s new movie, My Best Friends Girl, hits theaters this Friday.
