Working with your family isn’t for everyone, but for Kate Hudson, it is. The Jewish actress recently opened up about what it’s like to work with her “Pa” Kurt Russell on their film “Deepwater Horizon.”
The film, which also stars Mark Wahlberg, Gina Rodriguez and Dylan O’Brien, is based on the real-life events that led up to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which led to one of the greatest man-made disasters in U.S. history. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Hudson explained what it was like working with Russell:
“I got to see Mark and my pa, Kurt, together. I’m biased obviously, it’s my dad, but I thought, ‘Wow what a great combo they are.’ Seeing them together, I think they’re both very much [representative of] working men, American men, just as people. It’s in their blood and to see them onscreen together like that in that pairing was pretty great.”
Russell, also present in the interview, added that he enjoyed working with the entire cast, but that his “little hug” with Hudson stands out in his mind.
Deepwater Horizon is available on Blu-ray and DVD January 10.
