Kate Hudson wants to star in a London stage show.

The actress – who was on the red carpet in Leicester Square last night for the London premiere of the musical comedy 'Nine', in which she plays a fashion journalist – said she would accept role if it fitted in with her family life.

Kate – who has a five-year-old son Ryder from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson - said: "I've had a really good year which is a kid of a good feeling, it's the first year I've felt like that.

“I have thought about theatre, that would be fun. I would never shy away from that.

"As long as it's the right opportunity and timing for my family, but you know, I could. The decision-making process to do something like that does become a lot harder but I would never shy away from that in the right circumstances."

The 30-year-old star said she enjoyed the singing and dancing in 'Nine' so much that she wanted to do something involving that again.

She said: "I would love to, it was so fun. It's like the most exhilarating, joyful thing in the world, it's like 'Oh my god!'."

She also said it was the praise of her step-father Kurt Russell, who watched her during some of the filming, which provided the most memorable aspect of production.

She said: "My dad coming to watch, that was special, the first time he saw me, he was shocked. I think that's my memorable moment."
