Kate’s image graced the movie poster for “Almost Famous” which became iconic, and also made our list of one of the sexiest movie posters of all time:

“You may have never seen this poster for Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous” (in fact, I’m not even sure it ever appeared in the U.S. marketing campaign), but it’s definitely better than that boring close-up of Kate Hudson you’re used to seeing. Hudson’s performance as Penny Lane will likely remain the best work she’s ever done, and for good reason. Equal parts naïve schoolgirl and rebellious roadie, this image conveys everything we love about the character – from her innocent sexuality to her devil-may-care lifestyle. The cherry on top is the killer tagline (“Experience it. Enjoy it. Just don’t fall for it.”), though it’s probably too late to do you any good.”
