Goldie Hawn opened up about her relationship with Kurt Russell in a candid interview with CNN’s Chris Wallace. The 77-year-old actress explained why she and Russell, despite being together for 40 years, have chosen not to marry. When asked about their decision, Hawn questioned why they should get married and suggested it was a better question to ask. She pointed out that both she and Russell had been previously married and experienced the complexities and challenges of divorce, emphasizing the negative aspects and the impact on children.
Hawn had been married twice before starting her relationship with Russell, while Russell had one previous marriage. Their past experiences with divorce led them to question the necessity of marriage. Hawn expressed her belief that staying independent and true to oneself is important in a relationship, allowing individuals to make daily decisions about their commitment. She acknowledged the difficulties that come with relationships but stressed the importance of maintaining independent thinking and holding onto one’s identity.
The couple shares a son, Wyatt Russell, and also have children from their previous marriages. Hawn’s children, Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson, were born during her marriage to Bill Hudson, while Russell has a son named Boston from his previous marriage to Season Hubley. Despite not being legally married, Hawn and Russell have built a lasting partnership over the years, navigating the challenges and hurdles that come with long-term relationships.
