The 77-year-old actress and Russell, 72, were recently seen goofing around with puppets while out to eat.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are so adorable together! As a couple, they've beaten so many stereotypes and have managed to be one of the most long-lasting Hollywood couples who haven't officially tied the knot. The pair, who have been together for nearly 40 years, are living proof that love doesn't need labels. So what does it need? Lots of laughter and great communication skills, it seems!
The 77-year-old actress recently posted a fun reel of her and Russell, 72, goofing around and playing with puppets while out to eat. The two clearly treasure play in their relationship as they imitated their puppets hilariously. Hawn tried quacking like Donald Duck, while Russell got into character as Goofy. "Working on our communication skills," Hawn captioned the post. Hawn's daughter and Russell's stepdaughter Kate Hudson teased them in the comments, "Yep…They taught us everything we know."
In 2012, Hawn recalled their first meeting on set in an interview with PEOPLE, saying Russell was "adorable but he was much too young." The two first met on the set of The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, which was released when Hawn was 22 and Russell was 17. But as destiny would have it they reconnected 17 years later while filming Swing Shift in 1983, one year after Hawn separated from her former husband, Bill Hudson. Soon enough they began dating and the rest as they say is history. They were simply meant to be!
Goldie Hawn called her longtime partner the "wacky man" in her life in a sweet birthday tribute last month. The Oscar winner is fond of the fact that Russell has a playful side to him and she also loves the way he laughs. The two have been together since 1983 and have never felt the need to get married.
In another interview with PEOPLE in December 2020, the couple talked about the things they love about each other. Russell started off saying, "I love the things that happen in our life and whatever part of it that I am, I'm happy for..." before Hawn interrupts him and says, "So far I'm not in this story." Russell continues with a laugh, "Hang on, it's coming. Wait for it. The way she is when she's happy is irresistible. I like that. That's what I love most about Goldie."
The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two stars deeply respect and care for each other. Hawn gushed, "He has a child in him. He loves to play. He laughs big." She also added that he's really smart and that when he decides to work on or do something, he could be a little obsessive-compulsive, but at the same time, he gets it right. She thinks he's one of the great actors of all time and a fantastic father.
What Hawn also appreciates about her man is his honesty. "Like it or not, he can't lie. I mean, he's lied a little. But the truth of the matter is that what you see is what you get," she said. She continued that he doesn't fake things and that he's not a womanizer, where he's trying to be cool. "I like the fact that he’s not pretending to be somebody else," she adds. These two are true couple goals.
