Almost three and a half decades into their relationship, and careers which have spanned more than 40 years, the two are still as adorable as the younger versions of themselves. In 2018, a remake of their 1987 film Overboard was released.
While the new version of the movie didn’t receive the acclaim it did with the iconic duo, it starred Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez who are also quite adorable themselves. And while we are all waiting to see Kurt and Goldie star alongside in a film together again, we are content in the meantime seeing how loveable the couple is and their growing families.
Fortunately for the talented pair, they evaded the Hollywood relationship prototype of separating after a few years and have managed to stay together despite all odds. And while many couple's relationships succumb to the pressures of time and other life challenges, theirs only continues to strengthen with the years.
It's impossible to say whether the fact that they did not get married has helped them stay together. But something tells me that the two share a special bond that has helped them stay strong throughout the years. What is clear to everyone who knows them is that they are a great example of eternal love.
What's Their Secret?
So, as with any couple, especially one in the public eye, others are dying to know how they do it. "Love, gratitude, compassion, because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex," Hawn easily answered when People asked for secrets to happy relationship. "If you don't nurture that, and remember, you're done."
And on Kurt's end, he has commented: "I very rarely worked when I knew Goldie was going to be working. And vice-versa. Which meant we could be together. I never thought that what the business could provide would ever take precedence over us." Those are some pretty powerful words.
The Perfect Words
While the two each had their own rough starts, that said nothing for how their lives would unfold. When they first met, Kurt was far too young for Goldie.
The next time they met, Kurt was completely tongue tied, and unable to formulate the right thing to say. Now, he has no problem expressing his feelings to 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. There's no one else I'd rather be next to than Goldie Hawn."
Same as Everybody Else
While they have been in the public eye for the majority of their lives, Russell doesn't think that he and Goldie are much different than other people.
"Look, I've said this for 34 years, I don't think Goldie and I, in real terms, are any different than any other couple; we go through all the same things," he explained. "But the important thing of who the two people are in a relationship is what you have to deal with. There's gonna be ups and downs and sideways and everything else ... I just think after 34 years you're gonna have experienced every emotion that you can together."
