For many years, Goldie Hawn has been among the brightest stars in the Hollywood sky. Even after entering the entertainment industry almost by birth, the adored actress continues to put in a lot of effort to amuse. She and her partner Kurt Russell are still regarded as one of Hollywood’s cutest pairs at the same time.
They appear to be growing closer every day.
Goldie revealed fresh information about their devoted relationship in a recent interview with People Magazine, including how Kurt Russell still makes time to give her the cutest compliments.
The enduring and famous couple’s devotion to one another is remarkable, and their love tale over the years is even more amazing.
Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn: The Love Story
In 1966, while filming The Only and Only, Genuine Original Family Band, Goldie and Kurt first became together. In an interview, Hawn talked about the meeting with BBC Radio 4.
Hawn remarked, “I was 21 and he was 16.”
Although he was far too little, I still found him to be adorable. Years later, we reconnected, and I recalled how much I had enjoyed him the first time. It just goes to demonstrate that you never know. We both vowed to never date another actor.
Russell and Hawn reconnected in 1983 while completing Swing Shift.
This time, Hawn was the target of charming and attractive Russell’s pick-up line, “Man, you’ve got a great figure.”
In a 2017 interview with Conan O’Brien, Russell stated, “I was extremely drunk and I didn’t know Goldie at all outside of having worked with her those many years prior.”
She had a fantastic body, but I simply had no idea what I would see. Consequently, the first comment made was, “Man, you’ve got a great figure.” She answered, “Why thank you,” even though it was delivered swiftly and had the potential to go wrong.
While filming Swing Shift, Kurt and Goldie went out together one night after work. He took her to The Playboy Club, where they spent hours talking.
Afterwards, they decided to move the party to a new house which Hawn had bought. The only problem? She didn’t have the keys, which resulted in the two breaking in.
Goldie Hawn – children
The police later arrived, but it made for an iconic first date. Following that, nothing could split the two lovebirds.
At the time, Goldie had two children from her marriage with Bill Hudson. Her son Oliver was born Sep 7, 1976, and daughter Kate was born Apr 19, 1979.
Kate and Oliver have their own podcast, Sibling Revelry. In one of the episodes, Goldie’s children explained the moment that Kurt stole their mother’s heart.
At the time, Kate recalls being about three years old. Oliver, meanwhile, was six.
“It was the first time he brought him home to the house, wasn’t their first date, but it’s a beautiful story,” Kate said.
“We were living in deep Malibu and mum said that was when she fell in love with Kurt, right away, because she bought him back to the house and we were already asleep.”
Kate and Oliver shared a room, and Kurt Russell walked in one evening and sat down next to the children.
“He sat down next to you [Oliver] first, and watched you sleep. Then came by to me. I believe he watched me longest,” Kate said.
“According to the story when mum tells me the story. I was the last one he was watching and was there for longer.”
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell never married
Kurt and Goldie later welcomed their son, Wyatt Russell, in 1986.
It’s been 37 years, but the super couple are still deeply in love.
Goldie’s children Oliver and Kate, meanwhile, went on to work in movies themselves.
Even though they’re both well-known, busy actors in their own right, the family has dinner together quite often since Kate lives just down the street from her mother.
When Goldie turned 60, Kurt took the entire family to Tahiti, where they spent a lovely vacation together.
“It’s always so much fun when we all meet up. We are very, very close and see each other as often as we can,” Goldie told the site Now To Love.
Goldie and Kurt have been together for almost four decades. However, they’ve decided not to get married.
According to the couple, this is the reason why their bond is so strong. The kind of love and devotion they have is more than just special. And at the same time, Goldie explains that the key to a healthy relationship is not to spend every single hour together.
“We have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted, and isn’t that what marriage is supposed to do?” Goldie told Woman’s Day in 2007.
The last decade sure has been special for the Russell-Hawns.
They’ve now got six grandchildren. Via Instagram, they can be seen giving their love to the smallest members of their family.
The movie stars were captured on camera by daughter Kate a couple of years ago, holding their new granddaughter in a very special moment.
When the picture was posted on Instagram, millions of fans reacted with adoration and sent the most lovely messages.
Kurt has revealed that their grandchildren don’t call them Grandma and Grandpa. Instead, they go by Gogo and Gogi.
The grandchildren and children of Russell-Hawn got to share an amazing moment together in May 2017, when the legendary actors had their names immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The couple even shared a loving moment during the ceremony, kissing each other in front of the stars.
When you’re together with someone 37 years, it’s important to remember to show them love every single day.
Body language expert explains their love
Recently, new details about Goldie and Kurt’s wonderful relationship came to light. Body expert Karen Donaldson analyzed pictures of the two of them – and the results are just as wonderful as you can imagine.
Very often – if not always – Kurt and Goldie can be seen walking in unison. This, according to Donaldson, is a sign that they are on the same level. It’s obvious they can’t get enough of each other.
“Goldie and Kurt walk in unison which tells us that they are also in sync with one another on an emotional level,” said Donaldson, adding that their handholding also gives us another insight.
“[It] tells us that they are affectionate towards each other,” she says. “Plus, it helps that Kurt can’t keep his eyes off Goldie—a sign that he adores her.”
In Kurt and Goldie’s case, their body language is, according to Donaldson, a point of endearing love. How they communicate without using words is a sign of high-level intimacy, and shows how important the physical part is for the two love birds.
“The way in which Kurt holds Goldie’s hands in both of his as he kisses her shows a truly deep connection on an emotional and physical level,” Davidson explains.
Being comfortable around people is one of the greatest things, irrespective of whether it’s with friends or in romantic relationship. In pictures since Russell and Hawn started dating, the two have been very relaxed around one another.
Goldie Hawn reveals details on loving relationship
Comfort is the most important thing for the two lovebirds, and that, according to Donaldson, is a sign that they still are deeply in love.
“This signals a long-lasting relationship, void of competition and full of acceptance,” Donaldson told Woman’s Magazine.
“A natural mirroring of your partners posture and body language is often seen in more established relationships that have a deep connection.”
Now, having a relationship that lasts almost 40 years is very impressive, and the most important thing is to keep showing appreciation for one other.
For Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, this never seems to have been a problem. Pictures of the two over the years have always been full of love; the couple and their children have always aimed to do fun things together.
Speaking with People, Goldie revealed new details about their loving relationship. It turns out that Kurt is always keen to complement his beautiful partner in the most wonderful way.
“The other night we were going to go have dinner. He looks at me and goes, ‘You’re unbelievable,’” Hawn said. “He said ‘I cannot believe how [beautiful] you look.’ He really appreciates that.”
“It is really good combination,” she added.
“We’re very, very lucky”
Now, Goldie isn’t the only one in the family recognizing their beautiful bond. Daughter Kate Hudson – who Goldie had with her ex-husband Bill Hudson – explained that she is in awe of her mother and step-father’s relationship. In fact, she says that Goldie and Kurt’s affection for each other is “really the goal”.
“You and Pa have been together for so long and sometimes I look at it and I’m like, How do you guys do it?’” she said. “I’m still working on that.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Goldie and Kurt were in quarantine together. Even though she’s a great entertainer, the long days without being able to do anything special were reportedly tough, Goldie revealed in an interview with Good Morning Britain.
“We’re very, very lucky and I’m incredibly grateful, but what I do feel is a tremendous angst, a tremendous sadness,” she said.
There isn’t a more wonderful love story in Hollywood than that of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. We are so happy that they found each other and have managed to keep their loving relationship strong even after nearly 40 years.
