For many years, Goldie Hawn has been one of the brightest stars in Hollywood. The beloved actress, who practically grew up in the entertainment industry, continues to work tirelessly in showbiz today. She and her partner Kurt Russell remain one of Hollywood’s most adorable couples.

Hawn and Russell decided years ago not to get married, yet their love seems to grow stronger every day.

In a recent interview, Goldie shared new insights about their devoted relationship, including how Kurt Russell continues to find time to give her the most heartfelt compliments.

Their response is quite exceptional. Unlike many others, Kurt and Goldie have remained steadfast in their love and commitment to each other. They’ve become the gold standard for enduring Hollywood relationships and have built a beautiful family over the years.

So, what’s the secret to their success? Surprisingly, they attribute it to not getting married.

Few Hollywood couples can match the universal adoration and affection Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn receive from people all around the world. They’ve been together for nearly 40 years, a remarkable achievement in an industry where celebrity relationships often come and go.

Both celebrated for their individual achievements on screen, their genuine and enduring affection for each other is what sets them apart and makes their love story so authentic in the eyes of the public.

Kurt and Goldie have managed to avoid scandals or publicity stunts that often plague celebrity couples, and they don’t use their relationship to boost their fame.

Instead, their love seems timeless, a beautiful and harmonious partnership that serves as a testament to what true love is all about. They’ve been together for 40 years, a milestone they recently celebrated, and throughout that time, they’ve maintained a loving relationship and a strong commitment to their family.

Their exceptional devotion to each other and their love story over the years are truly captivating. Their first encounter was on the set of “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band” in 1966 when Goldie was 21 and Kurt was 16. Goldie recalled in a BBC Radio 4 interview, “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 date another actor, so it just shows you never can tell.”

Despite their initial encounter, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell were not ready to begin dating. At the time, Goldie Hawn was dealing with genuine difficulties, even though one might have assumed she was the happiest person alive.

She struggled with depression but kept it a secret from the world. In an interview on the chat show “Good Morning Britain,” Hawn revealed that her battle with mental illness began when she was just 20 years old.

“When I was young, I became depressed. I was 21 and I was rising to success,” she said. “I know it sounds terrible, but it’s a very, very difficult thing, I didn’t necessarily want that.”

Goldie Hawn married actor Gus Trikonis in 1969, but their marriage ended after four years. She was granted a divorce in June 1976 and subsequently married Bill Hudson just a couple of weeks later, a marriage that lasted six years.

It wasn’t until 1983, while filming “Swing Shift,” that Russell and Hawn crossed paths again.

During their reunion in 1983 while filming “Swing Shift,” Kurt Russell made an impression on Goldie Hawn with a straightforward pick-up line: “Man, you’ve got a great figure.”

Russell later recounted the encounter in a 2017 interview with Conan O’Brien: “I was severely hungover, and I didn’t know Goldie at all outside of having worked with her those many years before. I just didn’t have in my mind what I was going to see, and she had a great body. So the first thing that came out was, ‘Man, you’ve got a great figure.’ It came out quickly, and it could’ve gone wrong, and she said, ‘Why thank you.'”

At the time of their reunion, Goldie Hawn was already a mother of two, with daughter Kate born on April 19, 1979, and son Oliver born on September 7, 1976, from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson.

Despite being a couple for 40 years, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have never felt the need to formalize their relationship with a marriage license.

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have consistently expressed their views on marriage. Russell explained, “For people like us, the marriage certificate wasn’t going to create anything that otherwise we wouldn’t have. I don’t know – 40 years isn’t enough to finally say, ‘Well, I guess…'”

Goldie Hawn added to this sentiment, saying, “Our children got married … Oliver’s very happily married and Wyatt’s very happily married. Katie got married once and that didn’t work, and she’s with this most amazing human, and I don’t know if she’ll marry again. The point is that we all tried marriage, and sometimes marriage doesn’t work. It’s not about the marriage. It’s about the people and the relationship, and the will to stay together. And that’s a big one because if you want it, you can have it. You’ve got to give things up, but the joy and the excitement of being together and touching the toes of somebody at night is really a nice feeling.”
