Goldie Hawn Adorably Wishes Kurt Russell A Happy 67th Birthday
'Your light still tickles my nose,' the actress wrote of her longtime love.
In celebration of her longtime love's 67th birthday on March 17, the legendary actress wrote a sweet Instagram post reminding us all to keep being jealous. It's funny how just a few little words can carry so much weight.
"Happy birthday baby!" Hawn wrote. "Your light still tickles my nose. Lucky me!"
Hawn, 72, and Russell have been together for almost 35 years. If you, like us, live for 1987's Overboard, you'll remember these two in their prime — young, beautiful, and just as in love as they are today.
In 2015, Hawn — who has had a successful relationship with Russell despite never marrying — shared a little insight on making a relationship work:
"A lasting relationship isn't about marriage. It's about compatibility and communication," she told Porter magazine. "And you both need to want it to work. If one person does not want it to work, it isn't going to work. 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. Everything's a choice.
"I've been married twice," she continued. "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 realize that marriage, or the act of marrying, has nothing to do with the success."
And what Goldie says is gospel.
