For most celebrities, finding the right partner can be very tough; this is so because the dynamics around their life makes it very different from what regular folks would face. The relentless media attention combined with their wealth and the reality of their profession makes it difficult to find a partner who is willing to navigate the complexities of their world, which is why they often look to fellow celebrities for a love life that suits their mutual realities.
Anyone who follows Kate Hudson closely would attest to the fact that she doesn’t shy away from any opportunity to shower encomium on her boyfriend Danny Fujikawa. While Kate is a widely recognized individual with a popularity that extends across the globe, Danny Fujikawa’s claim to fame is his LA-based rock band, Chief.
