Goldie Hawn Feels 'Devoted' To Her Long-Time Lover & Partner Kurt Russell

May 08, 2022 by apost team

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are one of Hollywood’s most enduring couples who have spent nearly four decades together. Hawn and Russel are both into their 70s by now and enjoying their late years in life. The pair have a beautiful, blended family together, full of talented individuals.

Hawn and Russell have an adorable and loving relationship, and their obvious affection for each other is more akin to a pair of teenage sweethearts than a couple that has been together since 1983. While Hawn and Russell have both been married in previous relationships, they have not gotten married to each other; instead, they have enjoyed and are still currently enjoying a long-lasting and fulfilling relationship.

The couple is also well known for their big family, which consists of Hawn’s two children from her first marriage: Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson. Russell’s son Boston Russell is from his first marriage. The couple also have a joint son together named Wyatt Russell. Somewhat unsurprisingly, most of their children have followed their famous acting parents into show business and have also gone on to have children of their own – making Hawn and Rusell grandparents.

Many people have wondered how Hawn and Russell have managed to have such a happy and long-lasting relationship, especially in Hollywood. Fortunately, the couple has opened up about personal details of their partnerships over the years, and have even shown their affection for each other in their social media posts. Let’s take a look at their relationship over the years and what it looks like today.

A Long-Lasting Partnership

Hawn and Russell initially met in 1966 on the set of "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band," but they didn't start a relationship until nearly two decades later when they worked together on the movie "Swing Shift" in 1983. It seemed their age difference was the problem when they first met, as Hawn said in a 2012 BBC interview:

"I was 21 and he was 16. I thought he was adorable, but he was much too young. Then, years later we met up again, and I remembered that I liked him very much when I first met him. We both said we would never go out with another actor so it just shows you never can tell."

After they finally got together, the couple became inseparable and even starred in more movies together, including 1987's "Overboard," which was a big hit, and more recently in "The Christmas Chronicles" in 2018 and "The Christmas Chronicles 2" in 2020, where fittingly, Russell played Santa Claus and Hawn played Mrs. Claus.

With a relationship as long as theirs, and in Hollywood, no less, it's clear that they're doing all the right things. In April 2020, Hawn opened up to People Magazine about her relationship with Russell and how he doesn't hold back from telling her how he really feels. She recalled, "The other night we were going to go have dinner. He looks at me and goes, ‘You’re unbelievable. He said 'I cannot believe how (beautiful) you look.’ He really appreciates that.” Hawn also said she appreciates that Russell doesn’t pretend “to be somebody else.”

Celebrating Their Love

According to Hello! Magazine, Hawn and Russell have been together since Valentine’s Day 1983. Even though they have both been married before and have now been together for around four decades, the pair have no plans of marrying each other. 

Hawn openly discussed the topic in a 2007 interview with Woman's Day magazine. When asked why they won't head down the aisle, Hawn responded

"Because we have done just perfectly without marrying. I already feel devoted and isn't that what marriage is supposed to do? So as long as my emotional state is in a state of devotion, honesty, caring and loving, then we're fine."

In 2015, she said:

“I would have been long divorced if I’d been married. Marriage is an interesting psychological thing. If you need to feel bound to someone, then it’s important to be married. If you have independence, if you have enough money and sense of independence and you like your independence, there’s something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make  decisions one way or the other. For me, I chose to stay. Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice.”

Russell also talked about what really matters in his relationship with the Daily Mail in 2018. He said, “Everyone has their marker on what is really important and where you draw the line. For Goldie and me, that core value was this: the kids come first.”

Not being married has definitely not deterred the pair from showing off their happy, long-lasting romance. On Feb. 14, 2022, Hawn uploaded a sweet photograph of herself and Russell to her Instagram with the caption: “Love is a Many – Splendored thing. Happy Anniversary Loverboy.”
