Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell Achieve Remarkable Milestone: The Untold Truth Behind Their Decision Not to Marry

In 1966, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell crossed paths while working on the film “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band.” Although they had a mutual attraction, they never grew particularly close and could never have foreseen that they would spend nearly forty years together. At the time, 21-year-old Hawn found 16-year-old Russell attractive but considered him too young, so neither of them made a move.

After completing the movie, they went their separate ways and even married other people before their paths crossed again, leading to their eventual romance. Hawn had two failed marriages and two children with her ex-husband, while Russell also experienced marriage and fatherhood before divorcing in 1983.

Their reunion occurred during the filming of “Swing Shift” in 1983, where they rediscovered their connection and realized there was something special between them. Their first date took place at the Playboy Club, where they went swing dancing. Subsequently, they decided to meet at Hawn’s recently purchased house.

Upon arriving at the house, Hawn realized she had forgotten the key, resulting in the need to break in. Russell recounted the incident humorously in an interview with People, stating, “We eventually found our way upstairs, looking around at imaginary furniture, and we were in the imaginary bedroom, now, and we are realistically having sex when the police walked in because we had to break into the place to get in.”

During an appearance on The Ellen Show two years ago, the couple openly discussed their love story. Hawn expressed that they fell in love with each other, but what truly mattered was that they genuinely liked each other. They emphasized the significance of liking someone, as it involves deeper layers and goes beyond mere love.

Although they have never exchanged vows, the couple has no plans to get married. They are content with the way their relationship has developed over time and do not feel the need for a formal marriage commitment. Hawn once revealed that their relationship might have ended long ago had they been married.


When it comes to the secret of their enduring relationship, Russell believes it lies in knowing when to depend on someone and when not to. He emphasizes the importance of each person contributing their share to the partnership, rather than burdening one another. In an interview with Now To Love, he shared, “I think the secret is to know when to depend on somebody and when not to. It’s important that you are able to hold up your side of the house. I believe that one person can’t bear the whole burden because then their shoulders start getting heavy.”

Their love story is truly heartwarming to witness.
