Kate Hudson understands the power of forgiveness.
The Almost Famous star -- who has not spoken to her biological father, Bill Hudson, in many years -- revisited their strained relationship in a new interview, and revealed how she's found a virtuous way to make peace with it.
"[His] issues ... are just something that he has to live with, and that must be painful for him," the 37-year-old actress said on Sirus XM's The Howard Stern Show. "I forgive him."
"When you have a father like Kurt, whose sort of been there for the hard stuff ... He's not a perfect man," Hudson admitted to Stern, adding, "But the trust that I got from him in terms of his dependability was priceless for me."
Meanwhile, despite forgiving her biological father, Hudson did confess that she has had no contact with him in a long time.
Back in 1989, Hudson's estranged father addressed his ongoing custody battle with Hawn to ET.
"I've been living with the problem of visiting my children and seeing them on a regular basis for nine years now," he said at the time. "I want to see my children on my terms and I'd like my relationship to flourish with my children, my hands are tied."
