Kate Hudson & Bing: Ready For Take-Off

*EXCLUSIVE* Kate Hudson and Bingham jet out of LAX on Mother’s Day **USA ONLY**

Kate Hudson held hands with her adorable son Bingham, 2 1/2,  at LAX on Mother’s Day Sunday (May 11) in Los Angeles, Calif.

The 35-year-old actress wore a black leather jacket over a white top, grey pants, suede boots and a fedora.

“You have to exhibit so much patience with your kids and accept them for who they are,” Kate recently told Haute Living. “Your kids come out who they are.”

“For me, the biggest lesson I’ve learned from my kids is patience. I’ve been always been very quick to [get frustrated].  If I have to repeat directions twice, I start to get frustrated –  I’ve always had to move. With the kids, it has just slowed all of that processing down for me.”

Robin Wright: I Didn’t Want to Get a Face-Lift to Play Claire Underwood

05/15/2014 at 06:40 PM EDT

Robin Wright isn’t afraid to stick a knife in someone’s back while portraying ruthless political spouse Claire Underwood on House of Cards.

Yet Wright, 48, says her aversion to going under the knife potentially prevented her from accepting the role on the hit Netflix series when executive producer David Fincher pitched the plum part to her several years ago.

“I was sitting there going, ‘You’re 45, and you’re not gonna get a face-lift,’ ” she tells Town & Country for its June/July cover story. “I was really considering that stuff, because in Hollywood the pressure’s there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!’ “

(In the end, it appears the actress settled on a compromise, telling UK’s The Telegraph in February that she does “the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year.”)

Wright’s decision to tackle the role put her back in the spotlight after a long absence, which she attributes to her refusal to take on “wife and arm candy” roles that often came her way.

“Hollywood is difficult to navigate if you have integrity, so I opted not to work if there wasn’t enough to do in a role, which doesn’t have to do with the role’s size,” she says. “If there’s nothing for me to do as an actress, that’s frustrating … I’d rather go work at a menial labor job, where I can actually get my hands dirty.”

Yet Wright, who spent much of that off-screen time raising now-grown daughter Dylan, 23, and son Hopper, 20, with ex-husband Sean Penn, now realizes her choices came with consequences.

“In a sense it hurts, because you’re like, ‘I want to play too! I just don’t want to play that way,’ ” she explains. “I’m not up there with Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts. I don’t sell tickets. I’ve known that for a long time.”

Despite that, the actress, now engaged to Ben Foster, does seem able to laugh about the craziness of her 30-year career – including her breakout role as Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride.

“It was my first film experience, and so you might say that I fully immersed myself in the role,” she says. “I did not act. It was mostly telling myself, ‘Don’t be an idiot in front of Mandy Patinkin and Christopher Guest.’ “

Helena Bonham Carter Once Drunkenly Asked Prince William to ‘Be a Godparent’

Helena Bonham Carter Once Drunkenly Asked Prince William to 'Be a Godparent'

Helena Bonham Carter, emboldened by a few drinks, once asked Prince William to be a godfather.

“I got very drunk at one point, and I was determined to ask him to be a godfather to my daughter,” the actress, 47, recalled this week at a glamorous Windsor Castle charity dinner to benefit the Royal Marsden cancer hospital, of which William, 31, is president. “He quite wisely said ‘no.’ “

Bonham Carter said she cheekily popped the question when she met William and his then-girlfriend Kate Middleton while they were vacationing on the Caribbean island of Mustique.

Bonham Carter added, “I admire him. He has got the same grace as both his parents.”

At the Windsor Castle gala, fashion titan Ralph Lauren announced he is funding a new breast cancer research facility at the hospital. Besides Bonham Carter, celebrity attendees included Emma Watson, Cate Blanchett and Kate Moss, who wore Ralph Lauren.

The 200 guests enjoyed an elegant dinner of seared hot-smoked salmon, green beans and sugar snaps, roasted fillet of beef with caramelized shallot and tarragon butter, and steamed English asparagus, followed by a chocolate and salted caramel tart.

Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch said of meeting the Prince: “He is just a stand-up guy. I completely forgot to ask him how he got over his jet lag from his trip to Australia, because I was there at the same time and I saw all the commotion when he went to Sydney Opera House.”

At the dinner in the castle’s Great Hall, William sat between Ralph Lauren’s wife, Ricky, and Royal Marsden chairman Ian Molson, while the designer sat across from the Prince and next to Blanchett.

Also seated near William were David and Julia Koch, the American billionaire philanthropists.

Earlier, William told Lauren, “It’s a wonderful thing you’re backing. It will be another great addition to the hospital.”
