Hudson has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Kazu “Zu”
Kate Hudson discussed the criticism of her latest film, Music.
The drama written and directed by Sia has been under fire for its casting and portrayal of autism.
She felt the backlash was an “important dialogue,” but felt the intended message of the film was expressed.
She felt “terrible” that some people felt left out over the casting and portrayal of Ziegler’s character.
“I think when people see the film, they will see the amount of love and sensitivity that was put into it. The spectrum is so wide and should be approached with far more conversation and understanding of how can we be more representative, what are the best ways to do that. We want to tell the best stories we can. There is no one who wants to upset anybody. When people feel upset about anything, it’s our job to listen and encourage more conversation with other people who want to tell these stories.”
