Having spent the past three and a half decades together, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are proof that Hollywood romances really can work. But despite their longstanding commitment to each other, the two have, perhaps surprisingly, never tied the knot. So, after 34 years of speculation, Hawn has addressed the issue – and explains why her fans won’t be hearing wedding bells anytime soon.
Goldie Hawn seemed destined for a career in the spotlight. With her mother working as an actress and her father as a musician, the young star had many inroads to success. Indeed, Hawn’s love of dance was evident when she was just three years old, at which point she started learning ballet and tap. And come the time she was 18, she was running her own ballet school.
Meanwhile, Kurt Russell was making his own strides in showbiz. Following on-screen success as a child, the budding actor was quick to sign a ten-year contract with Walt Disney Studios, and his talents amazed the company’s legendary owner. In fact, Russell impressed Walt Disney so much that his name reportedly constituted the last words that the cinema icon ever spoke, or at least wrote – on a scribbled note on his desk.
