While on the set of Nine, Kate Hudson watched son, Ryder, become a man, admired Sofia Loren‘s many talents and brushed up on her maternal banter.
Director Rob Marshall set up a green room for the ladies to hang out in. They bonded,
bragged talked about their children and formed friendships to last until someone a bit more famous comes along.
Hudson witnessed a very proud moment when Ryder recognized the very essence of beauty. “I saw Penelope (Cruz) in the lobby today,” he told her. “You could see that he recognized what a beautiful woman she is. He’s so cute!” she gushed to Extra.
One person in particular who caught Hudson’s attention was screen legend, Sofia Loren.
“‘She’s just incredibly elegant and beautiful,’ Hudson says. ‘And the work she’s done, and the people she’s worked with. It’s like a living legend, an icon!’”
