It took a couple of years after their first encounter on a movie set for Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell to become romantically involved. A look into their iconic relationship.
Celebrity couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, while being iconic performers in their rights, also have one of the longest-running romances in Hollywood.
The duo first met while they were youngsters, trying to kick-start their careers in the movie industry. It took a couple of years before they reunited, and they have since been inseparable.
THEIR ROMANTIC HISTORY
Goldie Hawn was 21 years old when she met 16-year-old Kurt Russell on the set of the Disney film “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band” in 1966.
Goldie found the young actor quite adorable, but due to his young age, she could not make much of her feelings for him.
Seventeen years later, in 1983, the pair reunited on the set of “Swing Shift.” Kurt was severely hungover when he walked up to ask Goldie on a date.
It did not seem like a good plan at the time, but thankfully everything worked out for Kurt because when he complimented Goldie for having a great figure, the actress loved it. He said:
“I just didn’t have in my mind what I was going to say. She had a great body, and so the first that came out was ‘Man, you’ve got a great figure.’ It kind of came out quickly, and it could’ve been wrong, and she said, ‘Why, thank you.'”
Afterward, the pair went on a series of dates, and not long after, they started dating. Three years later, the duo welcomed their child Wyatt Russell.
THEIR PAST RELATIONSHIPS
Little is known about how Actor Gus Trikonis met Goldie Hawn, but the pair got married on May 16, 1969, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Gus Trikonis started as a dancer in Hollywood before playing the character Indio in the 1961 movie “West Side Story.” He directed his first movie, “Five the Hard Way,” in 1969.
After a while, things turned sour for the director professionally, and after working on a couple of low-budget movies consecutively, his marriage to Goldie also started deteriorating.
Their relationship only worsened, and they separated on April 9, 1973, but did not finalize their divorce until June 1976.
After her divorce, Goldie met musician Bill Hudson on a flight from New York to Los Angeles in 1975. A year later, the pair got married on July 3, 1976.
They welcomed their first child son Oliver Hudson on September 7, 1976, and then daughter Kate Hudson on April 19, 1979. Unfortunately, just a year later, on August 15, 1980, Bill filed for divorce.
On the other end, before reuniting with Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell was married to ex-wife Season Hubley.
Kurt and Season got married in 1979 and became parents on February 16, 1980. However, their relationship broke down, and they divorced in 1983.
KURT RUSSELL AND GOLDIE HAWN’S BLENDED FAMILY.
Kurt and Goldie are parents to four children; three from previous relationships and their only child together, Wyatt Russell.
Oliver Hudson is the couple’s eldest child, born on September 7, 1976, while mother Goldie Hawn was still married to her first husband, Bill Hudson.

Boston Russell was born on February 16, 1980, while father Kurt Russell was still married to his first wife, Season Hubley.
Unlike Hawn’s kids, Kurt’s son did not attempt to fill his father’s acting shoes. Instead, he opted for a quiet life, and little is known about his life.
Goldie and Kurt’s only biological child together, Wyatt Russell, was born on July 10, 1986. The couple’s child started as a professional hockey player before pursuing acting.
He has since appeared in multiple movies, including “22 Jump Street,” “Black Mirror,” and “Ingrid Goes West.”
Wyatt married beau Sanne Hamers in March 2012, but after two years of dating, they sadly separated. Their divorce was finalized five years later.
