Basking in the Mediterranean sun, Kate Hudson and her beau Danny Fujikawa are pictured with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell on a family holiday in Greece.

The Hollywood A-listers arrived on a boat at a remote beach on the stunning island of Skiathos, catching a handful of tourists who were also there, by surprise.

After enjoying the tranquil water, Kate and her famous family then took their seats at a rustic beach side restaurant for a lazy Sunday lunch.

After knocking back a few glasses of Aperol Spritz they enjoyed a sumptuous feast of freshly caught squid and sardines accompanied by a Greek salad.

One onlooker told Dailymail.com: ‘There were only four other people in the restaurant, and we recognized Kate’s party straight away. It was quite a surprise to see these famous people in a very down to earth place on a quiet beach.

‘It’s not a popular spot at all and quite hard to get to, which is why I think they came here because they knew nobody would bother them. Even when we realized who they were, we left them alone.’

The actress was seen in a skimpy bikini as she manned a boat the group rented to get to the beach spot

Relaxing trip: Kate, Goldie and Danny lingered in the warm sea as they stood around laughing and chatting

She added: ‘But being Americans, they were quite loud, and we could hear Goldie talking about how she loved sardines and how wonderfully cooked they were.’

Kate and her mother Goldie, 75 enjoyed the view of the beach while her stepfather Kurt, 70 walked along it to dry off.

At one point during their two-and-a-half-hour visit, Kate, Goldie and Danny lingered in the warm sea as they stood around laughing and chatting.

This is not the first time that Skiathos has been visited by illustrious actors as it was also used as one of the main filming locations for Mamma Mia!

Oscar nominated actress Kate, 42 was also pictured over the weekend passionately kissing Lightwave Records co-founder Danny Fujikawa.

Enjoying the view: Danny Fujikawa’s mother Melissa Linehan snapped photos of the beach

Paradise: The family trip to Greece is the first vacation the actress has been on with her family since the pandemic began

The Fabletics founder first met Danny in 2002 through his stepsisters Erin & Sara Foster.

But Kate and Fujikawa didn’t go on their official first date until December 3, 2016. 

They only just celebrated the former Chief guitarist’s 35th birthday last Thursday and are now enjoying some quality time in Greece although it was not known until now that they have been joined by her parents.

Kate, shares daughter Rani, two, with the musician, and is also mum to Bingham, nine, whom the actress shares with her ex-fiancé, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy and Ryder, 17, from her previous marriage to rock star Chris Robinson.

Kate’s biological father is actor Bill Hudson but her mother and Kurt have been together most of her life and she has openly admitted that she considers him to be her ‘real’ father, referring to him as ‘Pa.’  

On Sunday, Kate – who boasts 15M Instagram/Facebook followers – shared a cute snap of herself holding little Rani’s hand at the airport.

Hudson captioned her Instagram: ‘Been since March 2020 and now it’s time to roll little lady. We got this!’

The Los Angeles native got to Greece early ahead of the summer start of production on the Netflix sequel Knives Out 2.

Kate scored a mystery role in the 2022 whodunnit which, once again, will be helmed by Rian Johnson and star Daniel Craig as the Southern private detective Benoit Blanc.

Loved up: Kate and Danny shared a kiss on the beach on Sunday during another beach outing on Saturday

Stylish beach look: Kate, 42, rocked a plunging black one piece

Hudson was cast alongside Leslie Odom Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monáe, Dave Bautista, and Edward Norton.

‘In my mind, I don’t even think of it in terms of like a sequel,’ the 47-year-old filmmaker told SiriusXM last year.

‘To me it’s just, ever since we started working on this I was like, “Look, if we can keep this going, the same way Agatha Christie wrote a bunch of Poirot novels. I mean, do that with Blanc and keep making more mysteries.”

‘Whole new cast, whole new location, whole new mystery. It’s just another Benoit Blanc mystery and it seems like there’s just so many different things you can do with it, you know? It seems like it’d be really fun.’

On Sunday, Kate shared a cute snap of herself holding little Rani’s hand at the airport and wrote: ‘Been since March 2020 and now it’s time to roll little lady. We got this!’

Published

Jessica Alves has just ’20 percent’ of her stomach left after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery two weeks ago in Turkey.

Jessica, 37, spoke exclusively to MailOnline after the operation, revealing she is recovering at a facility in Antalya and losing ‘one kilo per day’ while ‘only consuming detox drinks’.

She explained: ’14 days ago I had gastric sleeve surgery due to the fact that I was 102 kilos (16 stone) and my diet wasn’t working.’

Surgery: Jessica Alves, 37, has just ’20 percent’ of her stomach left after undergoing gastric sleeve surgery two weeks ago in Turkey

Jessica hailed the surgery as being ‘the best thing she’s done’ as she ‘no longer craves food’.

The blonde bombshell went on: ‘Having the gastric sleeve surgery was the best I have done as I don’t feel hungry anymore, nor am I craving food.’

She revealed that her gender reassignment process, including taking hormones, had led to her weight gain, saying: ‘I attribute my weight gain to all the surgeries I’ve had done in the past two years as part of my transition alongside hormone therapy.’

Jessica explained: ‘The hormones retain a lot of body liquid and that makes me hungry all the time.’

Weight loss: Jessica revealed she is recovering at a facility in Antalya and losing ‘1 kilo per day’ while ‘only consuming detox drinks’

As well as a diet of detox drinks, Jessica added that ‘body massages and therapy’ are also helping her recover, with the star already looking to her next bout of surgery.

‘My next surgeries will be another nose job and voice feminization. But for now I would like to enjoy the summer and take care of myself and my health,’ said Jessica.

After her weight rose to 16 stone in lockdown and doctors branded her obese, Jessica decided to undergo the operation at Turkey’s Mono Obesity Clinic yet admitted she was scared and concerned.

Details: ’14 days ago I had gastric sleeve surgery due to the fact that I was 102 kilos (16 stone) and my diet wasn’t working,’ Jessica explained

Therapy: As well as a diet of detox drinks, Jessica added that ‘body massages and therapy’ are also helping her recover, with the star already looking to her next bout of surgery

She told MailOnline: ‘This is more complex and health related. They’re cutting my stomach and I’ll be left with just 25% of my stomach. Hopefully after that I will start losing weight.’

Last month, after undergoing another breast enlargement, Jessica revealed she was considering the gastric bypass after gaining weight following her recent sex reassignment surgery, leaving her ‘suffering with her confidence’.

She admitted that she’s debating going under the knife to help with her weight as she revealed she’s ‘at 100 kilos’ and ‘can’t shift it’.

Weight gain: After her weight rose to 16 stone in lockdown doctors branded Jessica obese

Having now taken the plunge, Jessica spoke to MailOnline from the Mono Clinic ahead of the operation, saying: ‘I did all the exams and my health is good they check everything – heart, breathing and blood tests – the doctor has performed like 3000 gastric sleeves.’

‘I have been diagnosed as obese as I weigh 16st [101kg] – i used to be 10-11st [65-70kg] – I am really huge but you can’t see it in pictures.’

Speaking about her results, she said: ‘After three months I will be able to see drastic results and just one a liquid diet and I’m not gonna feel hungry ever…

‘Obviously the biggest hunger will be removed from the stomach and when I’m thinner I’d like to be a glamour model and explore my femininity.’

Jessica revealed: ‘My next surgeries will be another nose job and voice feminization. But for now I would like to enjoy the summer and take care of myself and my health’

It comes after Jessica proudly flaunted the results of her latest procedure as she showcased her ‘massive’ new boobs in skimpy red lingerie.

Speaking with MailOnline, Jessica explained: ‘I went up to 1500cc they are massive but suits me so much better- I think that I will be a cup size H.’

While sharing her snap to Instagram, she penned: ‘Day 1 after my breast implants surgery at @beclinic_brussels by doctor Frank Plovier and I am feeling great no pain at all !!’

Jessica has been keeping fans updated with her latest surgery, taking to social media earlier in June to praise her surgeon’s work.

She penned: ‘Today was a very good and special day to me when I had my breast implants changed at @beclinic_brussels by the amazing Dr Frank Plovier.

‘My previous implants were far apart and too low, I could only use a push up bra which is very uncomfortable. My previous implants were 725cc and the new ones are 1500cc and it suits me so much better.

‘Dr Plovier is the master in breast surgeries woman from around the world comes here for it and I could not be in better hands. I am feeling so happy today!’
