Goldie Hawn Says Not Getting Married to Kurt Russell Kept Them Together
From Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber, September has been the month of devastating celebrity breakups. But there's one Hollywood couple that has been going strong for 33 years: Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. On the British talk showLoose Women, Hawn opened up about why not getting married has been a secret to their staying power.
"I would have been long divorced if I ever married [Kurt]," she said. (Hawn was married twice, to Gus Trikonis and Bill Hudson, before Russell became her partner.) She opened up about why she decided marriage was not for her, and how never marrying lets her and Russell choose every day to stay together:
"Marriage is an interesting psychological thing. If you need to feel bound to someone, then it's important to be married. If you have independence, if you have enough money and enough sense of independence and you like your independence, there's something psychological about not being married. Because it gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other. So for me, I chose to stay, Kurt chose to stay, and we like the choice."
She said that people still ask her why she and Russell haven't married, but her kids have always told her to keep things just as they are. Even still, her kids wanted to give marriage a try for themselves. But all Hawn can do is share wisdom about relationships that she has learned—and relate to fellow movie stars who have to endure breakups under the paparazzi spotlight.
"Not every relationship works, and that is the truth, and I don't care whether you're a movie star, or just a person on the street, normal life," she said. "Everybody's normal, relationships are always normal. I think movie stars have a little bit harder time because the cameras are on there all the time.
