Kate Hudson Tops 100 Most Beautiful List

Actress Kate Hudson graces the cover of People magazine this week for the release of its "100 Most Beautiful People" list, but the single mother said she does not spend a lot of money on how she looks.

Hudson, 29, daughter of Oscar-winning actress Goldie Hawn, told the magazine that she can't remember the last time she had a manicure or a facial.

The actress said, "I was a tomboy. I had three brothers. I was the girl with the dress on that always came back in the house filthy with scrapes and bruises. But I was always very girly. I had to be able to twirl so that my underwear showed."

Her best time for looking good, she says, comes "at the end of the night, when everything's soaked in and I'm still up. I like the leftover makeup in the morning. You've got to wash your face but there's always the leftover eye makeup, I love that."

Hudson was born in Los Angeles, the daughter of Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, an actor, comedian, and musician. Hudson's parents divorced eighteen months after her birth; she and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson, were raised in Colorado by her mother and her mother's long-time boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell.

Hudson has stated that her biological father "doesn't know me from a hole in the wall", and that she considers Kurt Russell to be her father. Hudson has described her mother as "the woman that I've learned the most from, and who I look up to, who has conducted her life in a way that I can look up to.

Other Celebrities on the List:

Joining Kate on the list, which People said is not ranked, are teen queens Miley Cyrus, of "Hannah Montana" fame, and "High School Musical" star Vanessa Hudgens, who have both been criticized for appearing in sexy or nude photographs.

"Just recently I've learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup," said Hudgens, whose image took a battering when nude pictures of her appeared on the Internet last year.

New moms Isla Fisher, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry -- on the list for the 12th time -- are named, along with mothers-to-be Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, making her sixth appearance, and Nicole Kidman, named for the ninth time.

Jolie's partner Brad Pitt is named for the eighth time, along with George Clooney, while Matthew McConaughey makes it for the fifth time.

From the music business, Carrie Underwood, Mary J. Blige, Norah Jones and Josh Groban are considered among the most beautiful, while from television Tina Fey, Vanessa Williams, Mariska Hargitay and Marcia Cross make the list.
