The holiday season is rapidly approaching and Kate Hudson is going to be single during the season for the first time in five years…but she’s smiling all the way through it. The actress recently did an interview with the magazine Harper’s Bazaar where she spilled her thoughts about being comfortable with the single life.

The 36 year-old actress says, “It’s nice to get acquainted with myself alone. You know, the goal when you get into a relationship is not to be out of the relationship. It’s to try to stay in the relationship. But if it doesn’t work, you can’t force things.”

Kate was most recently engaged to Matthew Bellamy of the band Muse, but the two called off their engagement last year. Together they have one child, a four year old named Bingham Hawn Bellamy. Kate was also married to the Black Crows singer Chris Robinson for six years, but that marriage ended in 2006. Together Kate and Chris have an 11 year old son named Ryder.

Most recently Kate was romantically linked to the much younger Nick Jonas, but sources maintain that was “just a fling.”

The star seems to have a pretty centered view about relationships and knows what to prioritize to keep her family happy.

“If something’s not right, I don’t believe in maintaining something for the sake of what’s considered a traditional family, because I believe that there are different ways to raise children. It’s far more effective to raise children in happy homes.”

In addition to doing the interview for the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Kate is also looking vibrant on the cover in a shoot done by Terry Richardson.
