Kate Hudson Has Almost Famous Reunion With Billy Crudup, Eric Stonestreet: Instagram Photo

Still wild and free! Kate Hudson gave Almost Famous fans a thrill when she reunited with her former costars Billy Crudup and Eric Stonestreet on Friday, May 15.

"Impromptu Almost Famous reunion @ericstonestreet," the Deepwater Horizon actress, 36, captioned an Instagram photo. Quoting the Cameron Crowe-directed movie, she added: "'Your mom called….she freaked me out. And then there's that other guy far left.' #AlmostFamousLove."

"We didn't coordinate it, we were all out and I ran into them," Stonestreet told Us. "Kate and I have the same agents so I've seen her around L.A. a bit. It was great to see them. That was the first movie I ever did."

Almost Famous was also Hudson's breakout role, and landed her a Golden Globe win for Best Supporting Actress and an Oscar nomination.

Hudson played groupie Penny Lane in the 2000 drama, set in the early 1970s. She falls for rocker Russell Hammond (Crudup), and takes young writer William Miller (Patrick Fugit) under her wing. Fugit goes on tour with the band to write a story for Rolling Stone magazine, and runs into Sheldon the desk clerk (Stonestreet) at one point.

The fan favorite flick is loosely based on Crowe's own experiences. As for the most memorable scene? Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" bus sing-along, of course!

The star-studded cast also included Jason Lee, Zooey Deschanel, Anna Paquin, Jimmy Fallon, and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
