NEW YORK, July 18 (UPI) -- "You, Me and Dupree's" Kate Hudson talks about her latest role, her childhood crushes and her parents influence on her life in an interview with "The Early Show".

In her latest role she plays a newlywed in "You, Me and Dupree." When Hudson and her husband, played by Matt Dillon, get back from their honeymoon they find that they have a houseguest, Dillon's best friend in the film, portrayed by Owen Wilson, who moves in after he lost his job and home, CBS reported Tuesday.

During the interview Hudson described the comedy as "really funny. Really fun. And really sweet, actually. There's something really sweet about the movie."

The actress also hinted that she had a crush on Dillon when she was younger, saying, "I think it was that sort of Matt -- we were saying, like, in the '80s, was like, I was a little girl in the '80s," and Dillon was "kind of a fixture in little girls', you know, minds."

She credited mother Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, with giving her the support she needed to allow her to grow into an adult and be in control of her life.
