A detailed look at her relationships will certainly help us to determine this. But before we go into exploring facts about her marriage and family life, let’s keep up with what she does for a living.

How Goldie Hawn Became an Entertainer

Hawn is an American actress, comedian, singer, and film producer. She first came to public attention in the late 1960s with her outstanding performances in Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In (1968–70) and Cactus Flower (1969). The actress was born on the 21st of November 1945 in Washington D.C into a Jewish family. Her mother Laura Hawn owned a jewelry shop and a dance school while her father Edward Rutledge Hawn worked as a musician. She is of German and English descent.

Goldie grew up in Takoma Park, Maryland and at age three, she started attending ballet dance classes. Her first performance on stage was in 1964 when she was featured as Juliet in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet during a Virginia Shakespearean festival. Hawn went to Montogomery Blair High School in Silver Spring before gaining admission into The American University to study drama but unfortunately, dropped out by 1964.

Subsequently, she relocated to California where she began her acting career with a role in the CBS comedy, Good Morning, World (1967-68). The following years saw her establish herself as the famous entertainer we all admire.

The Secret of Her Long Relationship with Kurt Russell

Goldie Hawn has been in a romantic relationship with Kurt Russell since 1983. The duo met in 1966 on the set of Disney’s 1968 musical film, The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. However, they didn’t start anything until they meet again while filming Swing Shift in the early 1980s.

Goldie and Kurt eventually got together in 1983 and about three years later, they welcomed a son; that was in 1986. Their relationship flourished through the years with no news of any scandal or controversy. However, rumors broke in the early 2000s that Hawn and Russell’s relationship was on the verge of collapse, citing infidelity on Goldie’s part. It was said that the actress cheated on Kurt with popular news reporter Charles Glass and Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Kahn. The claims haven’t been substantiated and the two are still together.

Despite being unmarried, Hawn and Russell’s relationship has outlasted many marriages, especially those of fellow celebrities. Speaking in an interview with People in 2017, Goldie Hawn mentioned things like love, gratitude, compassion, laughter, and sex as the secrets to their long-lasting relationship. Earlier, she mentioned that managing and resolving arguments has helped them remain together.
