Kate Hudson on overcoming fear and rejection

Kate Hudson has explained her reason for delaying her music career was down to nerves.

The 45-year-old Oscar nominee is best known for her acting career but last month unleashed her debut album, titled Glorious.

Reflecting on her reason for waiting to make music, the star - whose parents are actress Goldie Hawn and musician Bill Hudson - says she would have been devastated if she released music in her twenties and it flopped.

She told Variety, "Rejection, generally, I can handle. I think when you're growing up and you want to follow in your family's footsteps, and they're big footsteps to follow in, I'm not sure people realise how tough-skinned you have to be to get there. You feel like you're under a microscope, just internally, in the business...

"And I don't know if it's the way my parents raised us or what a tight family unit we have, and how happy we are in our real lives, that we don't value the noise... that we really value the work. That's how we were raised, and I've created a very tough skin for the acting world."

She added, "When it comes to this (music), though, it felt so vulnerable that if I would've done this in my late twenties, I think it would've been very hard for me to not sort of get carried into what people were saying. And at this age and where I'm at in my life, I don't have that same fear of rejection anymore. I really just want to share it."
