“I was severely hungover…and I didn’t know Goldie at all outside of having worked with her many years before,” Kurt Russell shared with Conan O’Brien when discussing how he started up a conversation with his now-longtime partner.
“I just didn’t know in my mind what I was going to say.” Then, he thought in his drunken stupor, that it would be a good time to compliment her on her body.
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.
A First Date To Remember
Against all odds and Russell's horrible hangover, his compliment worked in his favor. Kurt scored a date with the blonde stunner. On their first date, they went to see a movie. From there, things started to heat up and the two continued their date to a club for some swing dancing.
The night was quite memorable and even involved the police... usually not the type of date which leads to everlasting love. After the two clubbed until the wee hours of the morning, they went back to Hawn's home. Since she had just purchased the home to start renovations on, she didn't have a key yet. The two broke into her own home and that's when the police showed up, thinking that there had been a break in and suspected robbery. The two didn't let the hindrance ruin their first date and they continued on to a hotel room. That sure as hell beats any first date we've ever heard of.
Recalling the First Date
"That was our first date," Russell remembers. "It was a lot of fun, I'll tell you what. I can't believe it was a long time ago." When things are that great, they sometimes feel like they happened just yesterday.
But, their Valentine's date was a whopping 35 years ago. It's adorable to see Russell recall their slightly bizarre and scandalous first date with such fondness.
