After 34 years together, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell know keeping their romance alive isn’t always easy.
In fact, the 71-year-old actress admitted in a new interview that the duo sometimes struggles with keeping their relationship totally monogamous.
“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. It really runs the risk, if you will, if you’re not aware that you could maybe screw up a really good thing by doing that,” Goldie recently told People.

“I’m sure I’ve been party to it, and Kurt’s been — we’re all normal this way. It’s like, ‘You really liked that guy, didn’t you?’ Or the woman says, ‘You were looking at her.’ My answer would be, ‘Of course. Why not? She’s beautiful,'” she continued.
“Would you want a man who doesn’t look? Who doesn’t feel inspired by the beauty or the curves of a woman’s body? Or the way she is? I mean, come on,” Goldie added. “We’re human beings. There is, I guess, an elasticity to the relationship. Otherwise it’s going to break, just like a rubber band.”

The Overboard star and Kurt, 66, began dating in early 1983. They first met years earlier while filming the 1968 musical The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. Their blended family includes four children: sons Oliver Hudson, 40, Boston Russell, 37, and Wyatt Russell, 30, and daughter Kate Hudson, 38.
Earlier this month, the longtime couple received matching stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that,” Kurt sweetly said during their joint ceremony. “There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.” Too cute!
