Hollywood legends Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together since 1983

Despite never marrying, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are one of the longest-standing couples in Hollywood and have been together since 1983.

Over the past 40 years, the pair have shared the screen, blended their families, welcomed a son and become grandparents to seven children.

“No, we never got married but one thing that continues to grow is our love,” Hawn wrote in a birthday tribute to Russell on Instagram in 2021. “You’re a wild one, brilliant, lovable, childlike, perfectly maddening, a father supreme and deeply funny! I can’t imagine my life without you at any age, Kurt Russell. You’re the catch. And you’re all mine.”

From sharing the screen to becoming grandparents, here’s everything to know about Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell’s relationship.

The two actors first met while filming Disney’s 1968 live-action movie musical The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band — but it would be another 15 years before romance sparked.

Despite their nearly six-year age difference — and the fact that they were both determined not to date other actors — Russell made a strong first impression on Hawn.

“I was 21 and he was 16 and I thought he was adorable but he was much too young,” the actress said in 2012. “And then years later we met up again and I liked him and I remembered that I liked him very much when I first met him. But we both said we would never go out with another actor so it just shows you never can tell.”

Hawn and Russell reconnected around 17 years later at Russell’s audition for the film Swing Shift. When Hawn arrived to read with him, a “severely hungover” Russell put his “worst foot forward” and blurted out the first thing that came to mind — but the pickup line ultimately worked.

“I didn’t know Goldie at all outside of having worked with her many years before,” he recalled to Conan O’Brien of meeting Hawn again. “I just didn’t know in my mind what I was going to see. She had a great body, and so the first that came out was ‘Man, you got a great figure.’ And it kind of came out quickly and it could’ve been wrong and she said, ‘Why thank you.’ ”

They had their first date soon after, although it got a bit out of hand. As Russell recalled during an appearance on Harry, the evening started out with swing dancing at the Playboy Club in Los Angeles. He and Hawn then decided that “the night wasn’t over yet” and headed to a house she had recently begun renovating.

“We eventually found our way upstairs, looking around at imaginary furniture and we were in the imaginary bedroom, now, and we are realistically having sex,” Russell explained. “The police walked in because we had to break into the place to get in.” The pair high-tailed it to a hotel room, where they ended their evening in peace.

“That was our first date,” the actor said. “It was a lot of fun, I’ll tell you what. I can’t believe it was a long time ago.”

1984: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell costar in Swing Shift
After their first date, the couple fell in love on set. “He was so good-looking, but he had no pretense about him. I could tell right away he wasn’t a womanizer,” Hawn later told PEOPLE of her first impressions of Russell.

Hawn, who was already mom to Oliver and Kate Hudson from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson, said that their relationship became serious when she saw how Russell interacted with her kids.

“What really got me was when I watched my kids when they’d come to the set and how he was with them,” she added. “He was amazing with them. He was such a natural.”

July 10, 1986: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell welcome their first child together, son Wyatt
After three years of dating, the pair welcomed their first child together, son Wyatt Russell. Wyatt joined the couple’s blended family, which included Hawn’s children Oliver and Kate, as well as Russell’s son Boston, whom he shares with ex-wife Season Hubley.

1987: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell show their on-screen chemistry in Overboard
One year after welcoming Wyatt, the pair returned to the big screen in the 1987 romantic comedy Overboard. Hawn played a spoiled, wealthy heiress who loses her memory and is convinced by the carpenter she fired, played by Russell, that they’re married.

The couple watched the film together in 2020 when it happened to air on TV one night. “It was so fabulous … how we started, looking at what we did together,” Hawn said of the movie night.

March 29, 1989: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell present together at the Oscars

Hawn and Russell staged an almost-proposal while presenting the Academy Award for Best Directing in 1989. After walking to the microphone, Hawn said, “We fit in completely to the theme of the show. Because we’re costars, we’re compadres, we’re companions and we’re a couple.” Russell said, “There’s only one thing we’re not … married.” Hawn, laughing, asked, “Is that a proposal?”

After some banter —
and cheers from the audience — the Escape from New York actor glanced backstage and added, “Oh, they want us to speed things up … listen, we’ll talk about it later tonight.” Hawn replied, “We will talk about that later,” before introducing the nominees.

Years later, Hawn posted the memorable moment on Instagram in honor of Russell’s birthday.

In summer 2003, Hawn told PEOPLE that she was looking forward to welcoming grandchildren. “I would love to be a grandmother,” she said. “I’m not pushing the matter, but it would be so much fun.” Kate announced her first pregnancy shortly after.

Of the four children in the Hawn-Russell family, Kate was the first to welcome a child.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress and her then-husband Chris Robinson welcomed their son, Ryder Russell Robinson, on Jan. 8, 2004. Kate, who was 24 at the time, had previously said she was partly motivated to have children at a young age so that her kids would have ample time with their grandparents.

“I want [children] early enough to really experience my parents young,” she told PEOPLE. “I want my parents to be able to see my kids graduate from high school.”

That same day, the couple’s daughter shared one of the touching birthday gifts Russell got Hawn on Instagram: a new fireplace in their home. “My Pa laid the stone for the fireplace in their new home and if you look closely he put a big heart representing Mama (and I’m gonna say him too) with four little hearts representing us kids,” Kate wrote alongside a photo of Russell posing in front of the fireplace.
