For an incredible 40 years, Kurt Russell has always stood up for Goldie Hawn when it comes to body shaming. He has shown his support and emphasized the importance of rejecting harmful beauty standards. And this time, it’s no different.

It was love at first sight for them.

Their paths intertwined for the first time on the set of the film One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. Kurt Russell was a 15-year-old teenager at the time, while Goldie Hawn, 22, was among a group of girls auditioning for the movie. Russell’s mother spotted Hawn and confidently predicted that she would land the role. And indeed, her mother’s intuition proved correct as Hawn secured the part.

From the very moment Russell laid eyes on Hawn, he felt an instant magnetic pull toward her. The actor, known for his Escape From New York role, couldn’t help but describe Hawn as unbelievably attractive.

“I thought she was awfully attractive. You couldn’t miss her. She just had this energy about her,” Russel said. And we surely can’t blame him for thinking that way!

Recently, Hawn had to face a harsh criticism.

Hawn accepts the futility of fighting against ageism in Hollywood and embraces a non-combative approach. She believes there is no solution to the age rhetoric and chooses to embrace aging instead. Despite hateful comments on Twitter about her appearance, Hawn remains unfazed, understanding that beauty is subjective and not letting negativity affect her.

Despite not being married, the couple has created a close-knit family with their children from previous marriages and their joint child, Wyatt Russell. Their unwavering desire for each other fuels their long-lasting love. Russell is a profoundly supportive partner to Hawn. In a conversation with People magazine, Hawn shared a swoon-worthy moment when Russell said, “You’re unbelievable. I cannot believe how [beautiful] you look,” before their dinner date.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell continue to exude stunning confidence even in their 70s.

The 77-year-old Hawn looked incredible in a sleek black one-piece swimsuit paired with stylish sunglasses, while Russell rocked shirtless with swim trunks as they enjoyed a speedboat ride together. Unfortunately, amidst their vacation bliss, the couple faced significant backlash.

Their love story is a testament to the enduring power of love. Despite facing harsh public opinions about their appearances, the couple remains steadfast and unaffected. Hawn, in particular, continues to exude grace and confidence as she embraces the natural process of aging.

In a world that often values youth and perfection, Hawn serves as an inspiration. She reminds us that true beauty lies in authenticity and inner strength. Hawn and Russell’s enduring connection showcases the power of love that transcends societal expectations.

Through their journey, they inspire others to embrace their authentic selves and find happiness in cherishing meaningful relationships. Their love story teaches us to focus on what truly brings joy rather than being swayed by judgmental opinions.

I just love both Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell - I think that she looks amazing for a 77 year-old. I have adored her since the movie Private Benjamin back in 1980.
if ppl really are calling a 77yr old ugly it says more about them then anything. probably geeks that are comparing her to her younger movies. Which is just pathetic. Ppl need to remember they have moms and grandmas themselves. I hate bullies. I have my own views on whether it was women or men that said it and why.
