Kate Hudson has admitted that her mother, actress Goldie Hawn, was a bit concerned about her daughter's pre-occupation with the opposite sex, which started at a fairly young age.
Talking to American Elle magazine, the Almost Famous star, said that she began to take an interest in boys when she was 16, as she "loved" them.
The actress explained that she had always been that way. She said: "I always loved boys. I still love boys. First of all, I always had a boyfriend. This is the first time I've been single since I was 16!"
She went on to explain the importance of having a healthy love life and said that "you have to find time" for it. This was apparently one of the pearl's of wisdom her mother imparted to her.
The star admitted that she has been dating but has suffered her fair share of bad dates previously.
Clearly not one to suffer fools gladly; the actress admitted that she simply left one date as she thought he was "boring".
Hudson was previously married to Chris Robinson, frontman for the Black Crowes.
