It is quite normal for Hollywood couples to get involved in infidelity and distance from one another before ultimately breaking up. However, It seems that Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn are the couple from the fairy tales, the one that gives us hope.
When You Know, You Know
This duo has shown us that they can withstand anything. From the moment they laid eyes on one another, it was love at first sight. Their relationship was the talk of Hollywood, and so was their recent statement.
Is Monogamy Dead?
In an interview with People magazine, they recalled a statement from Hawn where she said, “Monogamy is a very tough order. You’re in the prime of your life; you are attracted to other people, potentially, you have fantasies about that.”
This kind of announcement makes us skeptical as to whether they had any kind of infidelity of their own. This isn’t the craziest claim considering Hollywood is flooded with affairs and infidelity.
Shedding Light On The Honeymoon Phase
The honeymoon phase is the beginning of a relationship where two people are so in love that nothing can get in the way of that. During an interview, Goldie expressed her feeling on the honeymoon phase.
The Hidden Truth
She mentioned that at the start of the relationship you always want to be with the other person. They even bought a mansion with their living areas. In the end, they had separate lives as well.
Where It All Started
Unfortunately, you can never know about what goes behind closed doors for a couple. While we wish we could know what drifted them apart, we sadly can’t. While working on the set of The Only And Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, in 1968, the couple first was acquainted.
A New Chapter
For Russell, meeting Goldie was the beginning of something huge for him and the start of a new chapter in his life. Wait till you hear what happened the two of them on set, it is quite unexpected.
Age Is Not Just A Number
While it was clear that Goldie and Kurt had an attraction for one another, they went their ways as soon as the film was over. Goldie wasn’t too intrigued by their large age gap, she was 21 and he was 16.
Building Their Careers
While she clearly thought he was good looking, he was also much too young. As soon as they finished their first movie together, they each created very successful careers for themselves.
Launched Into Stardom
Goldie won an academy award for her performance in their film, and from then on she became a star. This was definitely not unexpected from Hawn.
A World-Renowned Star
She was soon enough nominated for an Oscar and she was a big-time actress by the start of the 70s. She went on to host the adored Television series Pure Goldie and The Goldie Hawn Special.
Not only was she a successful actress but she also signed a recording deal with Warner Brothers for her country album. She collaborated with very successful artists like Buck Owens and even Dolly Parton and showed the world her multifaceted talents.
The Tables Turned
Unfortunately, Kurt was not as successful. He played various parts in beloved films, but he wasn’t taking off like Hawn. Soon things would begin to change though.
Kurt Russel’s Rise To Fame
Once he played a role in the big time film Elvis, that was it. His career took off and he was nominated for an Emmy. Afterward, everyone knew his name.
A Prediction By Walt Disney
This is something many people probably don’t know, but Russell is involved in a strange Walt Disney fiasco. Long before Walt Disney passed away, he wrote “Kurt Russell” and nobody knows what it means.
Some conspire that Disney foresaw Kurts rise to fame but nobody can know for sure. However, Disney signed Kurt with a long term contract. Today, nobody knows what those words meant.
Sport vs Entertainment
Kurt was a growing baseball player before he became fully immersed in the Hollywood life. His dreams were to make it bro and he wanted to follow in his father’s example.
Back To Acting
Playing as the second basemen for the Bend Rainbows and Walla Walla Islanders, Russel actually made a name for himself. Sadly he tore his rotator cuff, which led him to devote his time to acting.
Change Of Plan
He made quite the name for himself as the second baseman for the Bend Rainbows as well as the Walla Walla Islanders. However, he tore his rotator cuff and as a result decided to take up acting again.
Living Completely Different Lives
Goldie was first married to Gus Trikonis in 1969, and they were together for seven years. After that she married bill Hudson and had two kids with him, this is where Kate Hudson joins in!
At the same time, Kurt was married to Season Hubley, a fellow actress in the film Elvis. Together, they had one son. It seemed that Goldie and Kurt were enjoying their lives apart from one another.
It All Ended
In 1983, Kurt and Season ended four years of marriage. Also, Hawn and Hudson were also breaking up and apparently Hawn and Russell, were back on the market.
Little did these two know that they would one day come in contact again. During the auditions for the 1983 filming of Swing Shift, Hawn and Russell ran into each other after so long.
A Tale Of Fate
Later on, Russel said that he was totally starstruck by her and didn’t know the right thing to say. So what he led with was, “Man, you’ve got a great figure.” Apparently it worked well!
A Memorable Date
You may be surprised but such a cheesy line actually worked wonders and the two enjoyed a first date at the movies and a second one dancing.
Good Story To Tell
The night ended at Goldie’s home, but with a twist. Turns out Goldie lost her key that evening and they had to break-in, the police actually thought they were breaking in for real!
The couple could not be apart for the next three years after. As soon as Hawn announced her pregnancy, the families immediately merged together for the birth of their baby boy Wyat Rusell in 1986.
Now, Goldie with her two children, and Kurt with his one son, became a family of their own. Goldie and her daughter Kate are quite similar, especially since Kate is also a famous actress.
Mother And Daughter
You definitely know Kate from beloved films like several timeless movies, like How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days and My Best Friend’s Girl. She also has her clothing line and dipped her toes in the field of writing.
Finding Her Own Success
Although she had two very successful parents, Kate wanted to make something of herself without help from her parents. She began by performing in small roles, and then made her debut when she starred as Penny Lane in the film Almost Famous.
The film was a success and she was nominated for an Academy Award. Kate was extremely blessed to have such strong role models as her parents. This helped her in many ways given her passion for acting.
For many kids, it can be hard agreeing to a new step-parent joining the family. However, Kate was thrilled to build a connection with Russell and welcomed into the family. They have a great relationship and he is basically her father.
Kate and her biological father don’t have the best relationship because he didn’t even care to get to know her. She wasn’t around him for very long, and Kurt came into her life when she was only 18 months old.
Kate And Oliver’s Views On Bill
Both Kate and her brother Oliver Hudson announced that they tried to get in contact with their real father, but things went south. I wonder what happened, what do you think it could have been?
Kate and her brother are very close friends and they tried desperately tried to form a relationship with their father, but he was not as motivated. This busy musician could not make time for his children, they were heartbroken.
Bill’s Saddening Statement
Oliver posted a photo on Father’s Day 2015 and said, “Happy abandonment day”. Everyone was sure he was referring to his complicated relationship with his father, but it was directed to his ex-wife who got his children against him.
No One Knows
On the other hand, Bill says that he wanted to have a connection with his children, but Goldie would not allow it with Kurt involved. To this day we don’t know if he was telling the truth as it was never confirmed.
How Bill Feels About Goldie
After breaking up with her ex-boyfriend, Matt Bellamy, Bill publicly referred Hawn. He said that his daughter was just like her mother, “She has a wandering eye, just like her mother,” harsh for poor Kate!
Kate’s Relationship With Her Mother
While Kate did not have the best relationship with her father, she and her mom were besties. Kate says she was an excellent role model and she is so grateful that she has been there always to lead her through life.
Wyatt’s Road To Stardom
Wyatt is the also child that Kurt and Hawn have together and he recently started a career in acting. He has been quite successful and was featured in the baseball film, Everybody Wants Some!!
Sky’s The Limit
Before beginning his acting career, he was quite an avid hockey player. His parents always allowed him to be or do anything he wanted. As long as he followed his dreams they were supportive.
The couple has raised their family together and now their children have families of their own. Kate has three kids, one son with her ex-husband, and two children with her ex-boyfriend. She also recently had a daughter with her current boyfriend, and Oliver has three children with his ex-wife.
Raising In Faith
Goldie is a strong believer and follower of the Jewish religion and made sure to raise her children on that faith. Unfortunately, some of her kids went in another direction and leaned more towards Buddhism. Kate is a strong follower of meditation and devotes half an hour a day to meditate. Oliver is also a Buddhist and wanted a Buddhist monk at his wedding.
Work And Personal Life
Goldie and Kurt made fans fall in love with them when they were on the film Swing Shift. Audiences went crazy to love their performance together and were hoping to see more. However, the film itself wasn’t as much of a success.
A Strong Duo
The next film they did together, Overboard, brought in $27 million! After this, Kurt announced that he hoped for more work with Goldie going forward. The two looked great together on and off the screen.
Her Feelings On Marriage
Kurt and Goldie have been such an inspiration for 35 years now. Fans have been awaiting their wedding day but the two have chosen not to tie the knot. When asked they say, “What is marriage going to do for us?”
Goldie spoke about this with her children and they are completely on her side with whatever she decides. Even though there is no wedding on the horizon, that does not mean these two do not know how to celebrate together.
No Need For Vows
When interviewing with Vanity, Goldie explained that not marrying has kept them together. She feels like that if they made it official then they probably wouldn’t have gotten divorced already.
For Hawn, she feels that not being married has something psychological to it. It allows the people involved to have the freedom to make their own decisions. She feels like their decisions to stay in the relationship because they want to is much more powerful.
