Watch: Does Kate Hudson Keep Any Secrets From Mom Goldie Hawn?

There are no secrets in Kate Hudson's family.

Unlike her character in Mother's Day (in theaters Apr. 29), Hudson and her mom Goldie Hawn know everything about each other. Like, everything. "I've always had a really super open relationship with her," the actress told E! News' Erin Lim over the weekend, adding that Hawn and Kurt Russell "were pretty on top of things" during her formative years in Colorado. "I talk about everything. I'm like the person who comes home and can't hide anything. Even my friends sometimes are like, 'Kate, you've got to stop talking so much about your life.' And I'm like, 'Why?' I can't keep things in, really." For as long as she can remember, "I've never felt like I've had to hide anything from mom. If anything, she's always been my confidante."

While Hudson has often turned to Hawn for advice, the mom of two is a much "stricter" parent. "Kurt is pretty tough," she said. "I kind of have more of a balance."

Hudson has fond memories of her youth. "It was one of those childhoods where you say, 'Well, they must have done something right,' because we're all so close," she explained. "My mom, as busy as she was, was a very present parent."

Hudson, 36, is just as present with her own sons, Ryder Robinson, 12, and Bing Bellamy, 4. "Ryder's a funny guy. One time we were at a Super Bowl party and the person who was throwing the Super Bowl party had all of the USC cheerleaders there doing a routine...For some reason, someone dared him to go in front, and he did this twerk across the whole show in front of the girls. It was one of those things where it was like, 'Oh, you're going to be that guy in college.' You know what I mean? Like, 'That's who Ryder's going to be,'" she said. "He took the bet on, he was courageous, and he was so funny. He had maybe 150 adults really laughing."

The actress' kids know there's a time and place to be silly, though.

"In public, they're super behaved," Hudson told E! News. "They're good kids."
