They are one of those rare couples that have shown us that long-lasting relationships in Hollywood are possible.

Who doesn’t love the pair of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell? These two have entertained us with their films for decades now with their own on-screen chemistry and comical flair. But, what you might not know is that these two are pretty much like that in their daily lives together.

Recently in an interview they gave to CBS News correspondent, Tracy Smith, at their Los Angeles home, they talked about their lives, how they met and of course about their latest film together, The Christmas Chronicles 2, that was released on Netflix just a few days ago, on the 25th of November.

This isn’t the first time the real-life couple had the opportunity to work together and show us how well they fit together. As they explain in the video, their first work together was back in the late 1960s, on Disney musical film, The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, when they were both quite young.

To the question of the interviewer, if during that first meeting were any sparks between them, Hawn and Russell replied with all honesty that as there was a slight age gap between them, both didn’t see each other in that way.

Hawn said “I think for me, I mean, he was way too young for me. I mean, I was like dating older guys, right? I was what, 20?”, while Russell replied “I was only 15-years-old. I didn’t even have a car. I didn’t have a license.”

Years later though, in the early 1980s when both of them were divorced, they met again on the set of the film Swing Shift and have been together ever since. They are blessed with four kids, three from the actors’ previous marriages and one they share together, and six grandchildren. Although Hawn and Russell have never been officially married, their relationship proved stronger than of some married couples.

“What is the secret, if you could boil it down?”, asked Tracy Smith about the success of their relationship. “There’s no secret. And I love you for asking that question because it’s a normal question. But there’s two things, for me, anyway. And it’s that you both wanna be together. I mean, you’ve gotta want to be together,” confessed Hawn.

This powerful Hollywood couple has starred in quite a few films together, such as Swing Shift and Overboard, with the latest being The Christmas Chronicles 2, they play the Christmasy couple of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus, and as both actors explain in their interview they saw these roles as “real” characters and not caricatures.

Undoubtedly, everyone can attest that Hollywood is a difficult place for relationships to flourish, however, these two have proved that where there is love, everything is possible. Hopefully, this loving and talented couple will make more films together in the future as their chemistry is off the charts.
