Kate Hudson on Matt Bellamy split: 'We had different visions of how we wanted to live'

Almost a year since calling off their engagement in December 2014, Kate Hudson is finally opening up about why she and Matt Bellamy ultimately decided to split. Speaking to Allure Magazine about the demise of her relationship with the Muse front man, the Almost Famous actress said: “[Matt and I] chose to move on because we had different visions of how we wanted to live our lives.”

Kate continued: “Relationships ending are painful, and you can choose to carry that or you can choose to reframe it…If Matt and I had a great relationship, we would still be together.”

However, the 36-year-old insists that just because they aren't together anymore, it doesn’t mean that she and Matt can’t work together to create a loving environment to bring up their 4-year-old son Bingham, and Ryder Robinson, Kate’s 11-year-old son from her relationship with Chris Robinson.

“[Just because we aren’t together] doesn’t mean that we can’t rebuild something that would be the best for the kids," the Mother's Day star shared. "We said ‘We need to try to create something for the kids where they feel like they’re gaining something rather than losing something.’”

Goldie Hawn's daughter then revealed: “It’s been a seamless transition. Kids just want to see their parents be cool. Everybody’s cool; everybody’s good.”

Despite the breakup, the blonde beauty hasn’t ruled out romance again in the future, but is now looking for someone who will be a permanent fixture in her children’s lives. "Being someone who has come from a broken family and has a stepfather, I really benefited from having that very consistent [presence] in my life," she said. "It's something I am mindful of and want in my life."
