Kate Hudson Talks About Parenting In The Spotlight

With lots of attention around her professional and private life, Kate Hudson is no stranger to scrutiny and teaching her 3-year-old son, Ryder, about the family fame comes with the territory. "Every once in a while, he'll go, 'Oh my God, mommy, you're on TV, you're on TV!'" Kate told PEOPLE at Tuesday's Glamour Reel Moments premiere of her directorial debut, Cutlass, in West Hollywood. "I don't think he has any understanding of [it]," Kate said, when asked if he recognizes that she is a Hollywood actress. "I think he's aware that it's mommy's job."

Kate who gave birth to Ryder in January 2004 with then-husband Chris Robinson, brings her son with her to movie sets, she says, noting that he pays close attention to what his mother does. "I watch my son when he goes on set, and [he] watches what we do," Hudson said. "You can't help but be interested in what everybody is doing."

Remembering her own on-set upbringing with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Kate says, "People ask me that, about my parents, growing up. I don't ever remember a defining moment where I understood what my parents did. It was their job, like anybody." In recent months, Kate has declared dating as a single mom "very different" after filing for divorce last year after six years of marriage. Hudson then dated Owen Wilson for about a year, before splitting in May and picking up with actor Dax Shepard in July. Tuesday night, Kate told a reporter that Dax is a "great guy," but that she didn't like talking about her personal life. "Less is more," said Kate, who also, with a smile, declined comment to PEOPLE.
