The 35-year-old actress claimed as much during an appearance on British comedian Alan Carr's Chatty Man show. Hudson declared she and Hawn "can see dead people," but later clarified the experience is more of a feeling than actually seeing something.
"It is not really seeing, it is feeling a spirit," the actress related. "A fifth energy. I believe in energy. I believe our brains can manifest into visual things."
Hudson recalled an incident where she saw a spirit with no face, and admitted, "That was really creepy."
"When you see something, you're are supposed to tell the energy what year it is and that they don't belong there," she advised.
Hudson appeared on the program to promote her new movie with Zach Braff, Wish I Was Here, which opened in theaters in July. The actress will appear in Born to Be King and Rock the Kasbah later this year.
