Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy are "better as friends". The 'Bride Wars' star insists she has no qualms about splitting from the Muse rocker - with whom she has four-year-old son Bingham - because she believes they work better together when they're just pals. She told the April issue of Red magazine: "The goal is always to stay together. "Matt and I worked on it together and we came to the point where we realised that we are better as friends. That is a healthier approach for our kids and we can see the results." Meanwhile, the 36-year-old actress - who also has 12-year-old son Ryder from her previous marriage to Chris Robinson - recently revealed she would love to have a relationship like her mother Goldie Hawn does with Kurt Russell. She said: "I think what they have, in terms of connection, is really rare and beautiful and something to strive for. But it doesn't come without its stuff, [as do] all relationships." When asked what the best advice her mother has given to her, she added: "Be true to yourself. When you're connected intimately [with someone], it's a huge time of growth. [You have to] accept what that is and to go there, even when it's uncomfortable, [that's] the time you learn the most about yourself."
