Going 'Overboard': 30 Years Later, Will Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell Ever Get Married?
We'll love them either way.
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. We wouldn't change anything about them, and the dynamics of their 30-year relationship are clearly working. But there's something satisfying about seeing your favorite actors celebrating their love in a new way; doing something fresh and fun with the power to make them feel just a little more complete. So, when The Daily Mail alleged the two had a ceremony planned last year, we were rightfully happy for them.
Hussell would officiate their relationship "in a Wild West-themed ceremony at their $2 million ranch near Aspen, Colorado," they said. There would be "cowboy hats, horses and rock ’n’ roll," they said.
In truth they really could have said anything, because it turned out there wasn't much to that story; no marriage (that we know of) occurred, and Hawn and Russell continued to live their lives as they had before.
Still, rumors persisted. In February, Hollywood Life published another article furthering the rumor that Hawn and Russell became engaged during New Year's Eve 2015.
At the time, Russell attempted to lay rest to the rumors, illustrating just how silly they were to the couple during an interview with People:
"I was just talking to Goldie last night, I said, 'I should really have fun things to say. I have none,' They trot that one out every four or five years, now that we're four hundred years old...no, unfortunately, for those that need to hear, yes, I do not have good news."
Sounds definitive enough, right?
But what really convinced us we shouldn't be holding our breath was what 70-year-old Hawn told Porter Magazine just months before The Daily Mail's piece:
"A lasting relationship isn't about marriage. It's about compatibility and communication. 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. 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.
So, is a Hussell marriage in the stars? Probably not. As she states, marriage is in no way necessary in order to have a happy, fulfilling relationship.
Though we do love Goldie in white.
