okay so I made hannah a rebal cause then its more interesting when she falls in love buuuuuuut,i'm discontinuing it for 3 reasons.1 i've got some serious writers block.2 since the huge flood my house is wrecked so we have to fix it up a LOT!
This is our job.”’ She grins, standing up to head to her next appointment.
‘But if I didn’t love it I wouldn’t do it, it’s that simple,’ she says. We wouldn’t do what we did if we weren’t crazy and somewhat dysfunctional!
I’m worried about the guy who marries Kate,’ her mother’s partner, actor Kurt Russell, observed when the couple got engaged. As for her new role as a single mother, ‘It’s pretty much the same as before. He loves to go on the road, and it’s not easy to bring a toddler on a tour bus.
But impressively, Kate and Chris have maintained such a close relationship that they talk several times a day; Kate even jokingly advises him which girls to date. But I can’t wait till Ryder gets a bit older and I get some time off, so we can go back on the road with his dad’s band.
‘Chris and I divorced for the right reasons – we just didn’t work.
But we remain extremely close.’ The partnership between the older rocker and the young, pretty daughter of Hollywood royalty did seem unlikely – there was a 13-year age gap and they got together just as she sprang to stardom with Almost Famous.
Since the divorce she has dated Owen Wilson (after they broke up he reportedly tried to commit suicide), has been seen with actor Dax Shepard and, most recently, Tour de France legend and Sheryl Crow’s ex-boyfriend Lance Armstrong.
Despite being photographed canoodling with Lance in public, she claims she is not looking for a relationship with any man other than her son, and has said in the past that dating becomes very different after having a child.
Instead, Kate calls the man who raised her with Goldie – Kurt Russell – ‘Pa’.
She is proud that they’ve celebrated their silver anniversary, and grins broadly when I say I have met her mum. I have a wonderful, grounded family but it’s hard to be together now we’re all older – my mum is travelling like crazy right now.
Her last movie, Fool’s Gold, due out on Blu-ray and DVD, reunited her and Mc Conaughey.
