Kate Hudson was a young starlet focused on her acting career and didn’t live out any wild-child Hollywood stereotypes.
And luckily, she doesn’t think she’ll have to worry too much about her preteen son Ryder giving her any problems, either.
“Ryder’s a great kid. But, you know, he’s 12. So it’s all changing and starting. It’s a beautiful time,” she told PEOPLE Tuesday at the CFDA and Fabletics Celebrate for a Cause, which doubled as the opening of her 16th Fabletics store in Torrance, California.
Adds the 37-year-old Almost Famous actress, who shares Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, “I feel like seeing him now is the most amazing thing because you’re really starting to understand and see their character as they get to this age.”
