Kurt Russell dismisses marriage rumours
Kurt Russell has laughed off speculation he's married Goldie Hawn, claiming the rumours are "trotted out" every few years to keep people on their toes.
The 64-year-old actor has been in a relationship relationship with the 70-year-old actress since 1983, and recently they sparked speculation they had tied the knot after Goldie was spotted sporting a band on her ring finger. Kurt has now cleared things up, insisting nothing has changed in the romance.
"I was just talking to Goldie last night, I said, 'I should really have fun things to say. I have none,'" he laughed to Extra. "They trot that one out every four or five years, now that we're 400 years old... No unfortunately, for those that need to hear yes, I do not have good news."
Both Kurt and Goldie have been married before, but neither sees any reason to make their relationship official. Goldie has given her reasons in the past, explaining that "compatibility and communication" are the key to being with someone for the long term, not marriage. She's much more interested in working on her relationship and ensuring she and Kurt are on the same page with life plans than she is in buying a nice dress to exchange vows in.
This was something the blonde star touched on in October (15), when she joked to British talk show host Alan Carr that simply having a wedding is no promise that a romance will last.
"'I’ve been married twice," she explained. "The reality of, 'Oh, oh, oh,' in Beyoncé’s single ladies can turn into a (depressed tone), 'Oh, oh, oh.' Basically, once you’ve done it once, once you’ve done it twice and you realise that marriage, or the act of marrying, has nothing to do with the success.
"The wake-up call every day is, 'Do you I want to be with this man? Do I want to be in this relationship? Am I willing to give something? How can it flourish and do I want to be there?' So the idea is do we want to be there, or do we not want to be there? Any marriage, any ceremony, any ring will not define that truth."
