In the crazy world of Hollywood, it’s rare to find a relationship between two stars that is actually able to stand the test of time. That’s what makes the 37 year relationship of actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell so unusual! Now, the couple has added a new member to their family, as Hawn has revealed that they got a puppy.
“Look what Santa rescued for me,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of herself and her puppy. “Introducing Roy Hawn Russell #GoodBoyRoy.”

This comes after Hawn and Russell recently teamed up for The Christmas Chronicles: Part 2, in which they play Santa and Mrs. Claus.
“When we’re working together, we’re not on screen. We’re just going to work together, and it was the most fun for me,” Hawn told Entertainment Tonight of working with her partner. “Kurt’s amazing to work with.”
“It’s not just fun, but it’s exciting. And this one especially,” Russell agreed. “I just think this is a fun world. We’re both right for the people that we’re playing and we had a great time.”
In a recent interview with People magazine, Hawn and Russell opened up about the reason why they have not walked down the aisle together.
“You’ve just got to want to be together. I don’t think there’s any way other than do it,” explained Hawn, 75.
“For people like us, the marriage certificate wasn’t going to create anything that otherwise we wouldn’t have,” Russell added. “I don’t know. 40 years isn’t enough to finally say, ‘Well I guess…’ ”
“Well, we’re not at 40 years yet,’ Hawn continued. “Our children got married. I mean, they didn’t not get married. Oliver’s very happily married and Wyatt’s very happily married. Katie got married once and that didn’t work, and she’s with this most amazing human and I don’t know if she’ll marry again. The point is that we all tried marriage and sometimes marriage doesn’t work.”
And this is just fine with Hawn and Russell.
“It’s okay. It’s not about the marriage,” Hawn insisted. “It’s about the people and the relationship, and the will to stay together,” Hawn says. “And that’s a big one because if you want it, you can have it. You’ve got to give things up, but the joy and the excitement of being together and touching the toes of somebody at night is really a nice feeling.”
