Get ready for a fun walk down memory lane! Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been one of Hollywood’s cutest couples for nearly 35 years — but do you know how the duo first met? Scroll down to learn the latest news about Goldie and Kurt’s relationship!
How did Kurt and Goldie meet?
The future-couple met while filming the 1968 movie The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. Though Goldie has admitted she had a crush on Kurt when they were first introduced, she didn’t reveal her feelings because of their significant age difference.

“I was 21 and he was 16 and I thought he was adorable but he was much too young,” the actress said during a past radio interview. “And then, years later, we met up again and I liked him and I remembered that I liked him very much when I first met him. But we both said we would never go out with another actor so it just shows you never can tell,” Goldie added. How sweet!
Goldie, 71, and Kurt, 66, officially started dating in 1983 when she was 38 and he was 32. At the time, Goldie was newly divorced from her second husband, Bill Hudson, and Kurt had just split from his first wife, Season Hubley.
Do they have children together?
Yes, Goldie and Kurt have a 31-year-old son, Wyatt Russell, together. The actor has an older son, Boston Russell, 37, from his past marriage to Season and Goldie is a mom to Oliver Hudson, 41, and Kate Hudson, 38, with her former husband Bill.
Are Kurt and Goldie married?
No! In a previous interview, Goldie confessed if she and Kurt had tied the knot they’d be “long divorced” by now.

“Marriage is an interesting sociological thing. If you need to be bound to someone, then it’s important to be married,” she once said. “If you have independence, if you have enough money and enough sense of independence and you like your independence, there is something psychological about not being married because it gives you the freedom to make decisions.”
Have Goldie and Kurt ever broken up?
Yes, they once split because of another man! “Their open relationship got complicated,” an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly about a couple of indiscretions and some public humiliation that rocked the stability of their blended family. “It led to a separation, which was a real gamechanger in the relationship. The day she left Kurt was their greatest test.”
The insider added, “They were both acting out a little, and he was on a jealousy kick that hadn’t really shown itself. They called an adult time-out to get some space so tempers could cool.”
How many movies have they starred in together?
Goldie and Kurt have co-starred in three movies: The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band (1968), Swing Shift (1984), and Overboard (1987). Here’s hoping they team up for more movie gigs in the future!
