Kate Hudson refers to ‘ups and downs’ after Matt Bellamy split at the People Magazine Awards
She’s newly single after splitting with fiance Matt Bellamy, so Kate Hudson took a moment to reflect when she made her speech at the People Magazine Awards on Thursday.
The 35-year-old actress had just been presented the Celebrity Role Model Of The Year Award by pal Nicole Richie at the star-studded event and said ‘This is a beautiful honour’
She continued: ‘Life is a journey with its ups and downs, its challenges and its triumphs. Don’t ever let anyone ever push you around.’

The mother-of-two also gave credit to her mother Goldie Hawn telling People backstage: ‘My [role model is] easy, mine’s my mom, she’s kind of awesome.
‘My children are my role models, too. I think you learn a lot from your kids – the purity and the sense of how they attack things and how they communicate is inspirational.’
Kate made the evening a girl’s night and took BFF Nicole as her date with the duo looking gorgeous, showing off two very different styles on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Blonde beauty Kate wowed in a cream asymmetric Grecian style gown with gathered waist and intricate gold branch design.
While only 5ft 6in herself, Kate appeared to tower over petite Nicole, who stands at 5ft 1in so must have been hiding some skyscraper heels under the floor-skimming garment.
Her golden tresses fell in glamourous curls and she opted for a natural makeup palette while completing the look with a gold clutch.
Earlier, Kate, shared a behind the scenes selfie to her Instagram alongside Nicole saying, ‘See u soon! #PeopleMagazineAwards’

For the finishing touch she donned classic pointed pumps and carried a silver fringed black satin purse.
The mother-of-two also opted for her trademark slicked back hairdo.

Kate and Nicole looked to be in great spirits and even shared a giggle as they made their way past waiting photographers.
NBC will air the two-hour People ceremony, hosted by Nick Cannon, and will include performances by Maroon 5, Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.
Last week, just one day after news broke of Kate’s split with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, the actress enjoyed a low key girl’s night with the Candidly Nicole star.

Dressed down in jeans and a knitted poncho, the Almost Famous actress was spotted arriving at her good friend Sara Foster’s house with Nicole arriving shortly afterwards for some quality girl time.
Before splitting, Kate and Matt enjoyed a four year relationship together and share three-year-old son Bingham. She also has son Ryder from her previous marriage to Chris Robinson.
Nicole is married to Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden and share a son, Sparrow, five and daughter Harlow, six.
