Goldie Hawn Thinks Getting Older and Kurt Russell Are Both Great

In an interview with Porter, Goldie Hawn talked about getting older, staying happy, and her marriage-free romance with Kurt Russell. The 69-year-old actress (who has not been in a movie since 2002’s The Banger Sisters) said aging is merely a “fact of life” and that the “key to happiness is all about perspective.”

“It’s wonderful to know you’re aging, because that means you’re still on the planet, right?” she jokes. “It’s all about how you make it. It’s all in your mind.”


Blah blah blah OK Goldie we get it. Aging exists only in your mind. You know what else exists only in my mind? Sequels to Overboard and The First Wives Club. I’d even take a sequel to Town & Country! But no, you have to sit around giving interviews about sustaining “one of the longest surviving partnerships between megastars in Hollywood.”

On the secret behind her 32-year-old relationship with Kurt Russell, she tells the magazine, “a lasting relationship isn’t about marriage. It’s about compatibility and communication...Intention is the key...It’s also about not losing yourself in each other. Being together, two pillars holding up the house and the roof, and being different, not having to agree on everything, learning how to deal with not agreeing.”

You’re obviously wonderful at not agreeing, Ms. Hawn!

I think Overboard needs a follow-up chronicling Joanna and Dean’s retirement in Italy. I think Dean needs to fall off a yacht in the Mediterranean, suffer from the same acute amnesia as Joanna in the first one, and get taken in by a kooky Italian family on the Amalfi coast. I think Joanna needs to travel the Italian coast looking for her husband in a laugh-filled second act that’s filled with miscommunication.

You know what else I think? I think The First Wives Club 2 should follow Elise, Brenda, and Annie as they help a new batch of recent divorcees - played by Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Angela Bassett, and Julianne Moore. That’s what I think.

But Goldie disagrees. Figures.

My dear, sweet brother Numsie!

Goldie and Kurt have a cottage the next lake over from ours. I’ve met them a few times and they are suuuuuuper nice. Like, you could mistake them for actually being Canadian they are so nice.

I haven’t seen them in a couple years, and that’s good, because they are so sweet they’re gonna give me a fucking cavity.
