The couple complement each other perfectly, and also serve as an inspiration to their daughter Kate Hudson.
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell could very well be the epitome of #couplegoals. The 74-year-old Oscar winner has been with Russell, 69, for nearly four decades now. She told PEOPLE at a Beautiful Issue cover shoot interview in Los Angeles back in February that he always makes her feel beautiful. "The other night we were going to go have dinner. He looks at me and goes, "You’re unbelievable,'" Hawn recounted. '"He said I cannot believe how [beautiful] you look.' He really appreciates that." The powerhouse couple seemed to have struck the right balance with each other during the 37 years together (and counting), and considers themselves to be a "good unit". "You want to stay in your power, but you also want to be forgiving. And you want to understand and have compassion for the other person," Hawn shared. "If you cannot do that, then you’re not giving yourself a real fair chance at a long-term relationship. And that’s a lesson that we all have to learn."
According to E! Online, Russell shared how they celebrated their 31st anniversary. He had opened a place called The Wine Saloon."I've been making wine for the past the last years. It's a really high-end pinot noir and it's a really high-end chardonnay. So I said, 'I want to have a great to showcase it at,'" he explained. "In Los Alamos, Calif., there's this old 1880 Wells Fargo station coach stop that's still there, and inside of it is this great old saloon that we've taken over." The Wine Saloon sells Russell's GoGi wines, along with Hudson Bellamy Wines (a rosé inspired by Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy) and Ampelos Cellars. "I took Goldie there for Valentine's Day," the actor said.
Their close relationship has also served as an inspiration to their daughter Kate Hudson. "You and Pa have been together for so long and sometimes I look at it and I’m like, 'How do you guys do it?'" she admits. "I’m still working on that. Just the fact that they’ve been able to maintain a unit for all of us, in times of turmoil, they really are the center of all of our lives." Hudson noted that the two of them complement each other so well, and that is why they have maintained a strong bond with each other. She said, "Mom is kinetic and she is a butterfly. And Pa likes his family and his home. But when they’re together, it’s so powerful."
Hawn and Russel's daughter also went on to share a sexy '80s throwback of the pair on Instagram back in 2017 in honor of their anniversary. She captioned the photo: Mama Goldie and Pa killing it 80's style. I forgot to post a note on my parent' 34th Anniversary so I figure why not now. "He was so good-looking, but he had no pretense about him. I could tell right away he wasn’t a womanizer" Hawn told PEOPLE then.
The actress recently told Russell that she would love to do a one-woman show in New York. "And he said that’s why we needed that apartment; I knew you’re going to do this one day," she recalls. "That was so sweet." The actress says that Russell is more low-key when they're at home, and loves to play golf and spend time with family. To which she laughingly adds, "In the meantime, I say, 'So no bike ride?'"
Hawn's secret to a lasting and fulfilling relationship is: "Love, gratitude, compassion because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex. If you don’t nurture that, and remember, you’re done." Spoken like a wise lady, and we can all learn a thing or two from her.
