Kurt and Hubley’s marriage lasted for four years. They divorced in 1983. Hawn, meanwhile, divorced Hudson in 1980. She and Bill had met while she was still married to Trikonis.
Both Hawn and Russell’s marriages failed around the same time and they were both conveniently single again during the same years. However, the two would never have expected that they would end up together.
Kurt Russell had to choose between two things he loved – would he chase a career as an actor or become a professional baseball player? He joined the minor leagues after being inspired by his father who was also a professional baseball player.
He made it to class AA in the California Angels in 1973, where he played second base. He had a pretty good average of .563 which got him to the league but he decided to pursue an acting career instead.
Two Separate Lives
Similar to their differing professional lives, their personal lives were also developing in contrast to one another. Goldie married dancer Gus Trikonis in 1969 in Hawaii. The pair were together for seven years.
Shortly after the divorce, Hawn married musician Bill Hudson of the Hudson Brothers and they had two children together – Oliver and Kate. Russell, meanwhile, tied the knot with Season Hubley with whom he starred in Elvis and had a son with her named Boston.
Hawn`s Steamy Moments With Warren Beatty and Mel Gibson
On Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Hawn shared some steamy moments with her male co-stars, and one was with the strikingly handsome Warren Beatty. The stunning star was actually quite nervous about meeting Beatty, saying, “He was so handsome that I didn’t know if my eyes would burn inside my head if I looked at him long enough.” Hawn and Beatty met each other on the set of the 1971 movie Dollars, which was filmed in Germany.
Andy Cohen asked if Goldie had feared falling under Beatty’s spell. Hawn admitted “I kind of did. Yeah. I really did. I mean, honestly, and you know, uh, and I did.” Hawn said that she and Beatty had a moment, but she wouldn’t share more than that— although she did say that she met his mom and dad. What really happened between the two will stay a mystery, but Hawn was glad to tell us about another handsome actor when she was asked to choose her favorite onscreen kisser. She admitted to it being Mel Gibson, from Bird on Wire.
We Meet Again
Finally in 1983, Goldie and Kurt's story recommenced. They once again met at an audition for Swing Shift. Russell was infatuated with Goldie years after they first worked together. However, Kurt had gone a little hard with the alcohol the night before and was experiencing a terribly bad hangover, a recipe which doesn't produce the best outcome.
He found himself unable to express his feelings for Goldie. Russell admitted to Conan when he was a guest on the show that he approached Goldie saying "Man, you've got a great figure." Well, we do have to agree with him on that.
