CULVER CITY, Calif. -- Life was easy for actor Oliver Hudson. He grew up in a show-biz family and didn't particularly want to be an actor. When he was 8 years old he and his pal, John, from across the street would conjure horror movies with buckets of fake blood, latex and firecrackers.
But his sister was Kate Hudson, his mom was Goldie Hawn and his father figure was Kurt Russell. Hey, the DNA was there.
