It's all happening! Kate Hudson is officially 40 years old!

Unlike Hudson's character Penny Lane in Almost Famous, we are total groupies of this actress and all that she does.

Technically we are Band-Aids like she was in the 2000 flick as well, because let's face it, we appreciate her, her craft and all that she does. Sadly, we don't exactly inspire her work, but the birthday girl does inspire us.

After two decades worth of hits and roles to look back on, it's clear that Hudson has made her mark on Hollywood and we are forever grateful that she did.

She might've started out as an indie film star and the daughter of the one and only Goldie Hawn—not to mention she was raised by her Pa, Kurt Russell—but throughout her career she's made a name for herself and made us all want to be a carefree sun goddess/actress/designer/author!

The mother of three is one of Hollywood's favorite celeb kid success stories and a total golden girl.

She's won over fans with her unique and iconic roles in films like Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Bride Wars, Raising Helen and even had a fierce stint on Glee as Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) hardcore instructor in New York City.

In addition to her acting career, she is a published author, co-founder of Fabletics, and now she has a second clothing brand called Happy X Nature

When she's not busy doing one of her many ventures she is hanging out with her famous fam, killing it at the mom game and living her best zen and California-based life.

Even though we love Hudson for all of her successes, her personal style and her overall good vibes, today we're focusing on her epic career in Hollywood.

There have been a lot of great moments in Hudson's movie and television career, and we want to know which one you love most?

For example, are you a fan of her rom-com work in films like Something Borrowed? What about her more serious roles including Deepwater Horizon and Marshall? No matter what your answer we want to know, so vote now!

Oh, and happy birthday, Kate! We hope it's just as bright and bubbly as you are.
