KATE’S DEBUT: Kate Hudson made her directorial debut in “Cutlass,” a short film that was a part of Glamour’s “Reel Moments” movie series and screened on Sunday during the Tribeca Film Festival. But her move behind the camera was something that came naturally. “I grew up behind the camera,” said Hudson at the after party hosted by Glamour at the Greenwich Hotel. When her mother, Goldie Hawn, and Hawn’s longtime partner, Kurt Russell, starred in movies when Hudson was a little girl, “we couldn’t be on set unless we were working.”

For example, in “Big Trouble in Little China” which featured Russell, Hudson said she braided hair for the extras in the film. Still, the actress admitted directing “Cutlass” was challenging, particularly because the real story she adapted for the film reflected the glamorous brand message of the film series. Hudson said her own short would have reflected her raunchier sense of humor. “If it were mine, it would have been a differently rated type of short,” she said.
