Despite her enthusiasm, Hudson acknowledged that her family might have reservations about her taking on the role of the Fleetwood Mac singer. She humorously noted that her mom, Goldie Hawn, stepdad, Kurt Russell, and her siblings might prefer she avoid going too deep into method acting for such a role, fearing she might “go way too far” into the character.

Hudson’s interest in musical biopics extends beyond Stevie Nicks. She finds the genre intriguing due to the fascinating lives these films depict and the challenge of telling their stories accurately. Another figure she finds compelling is Dusty Springfield, an English singer known for her shyness and stage fright, who struggled with being open about her sexuality.

Springfield, who passed away in 1999, remains one of Hudson’s favourites. Hudson believes that a film about Springfield could be incredibly powerful, given her struggles and the depth of her character. This potential project reflects Hudson’s broader interest in exploring complex and intriguing lives through film.

Hudson’s passion for music and storytelling is evident from her breakout role as Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous, a film about a touring rock band in the early 1970s. She credits Crowe for recognizing her love for music and casting her in a role that has influenced much of her career and personal life.
