Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell Receive Hollywood Walk Of Fame Stars
GOLDIE HAWN & KURT RUSSELL RECEIVE STARS ON HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME
The famous couple were awarded the 2,609th and 2,610th stars, and were joined by guests Reese Witherspoon, Quentin Tarantino, and Hawn’s daughter Kate Hudson. “Can we just get married? We’ve never had a celebration like this before,” Hawn said.
The actors have been together for 33 years, but never married. Still, they share a song, Wyatt Russell, together and raised Hawn’s son Oliver Hudson together.
“That star is part of ‘yes.’ I really went through something then because I didn’t know what it meant to be a star when people didn’t know who I was,” Hawn continued. “I didn’t get my white picket fence but I got a beautiful house. I said ‘yes’ to Kurt Russell. I said ‘yes’ to Bill Hudson, and without Bill I wouldn’t have had Katie and Oliver. I wish my mom and my dad could see me.”
Russell stepped in and said his thanks, with words that sounded almost like wedding vows. “I owe a special debt of appreciation to my family. Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me,” he said. “Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don’t hold a candle to that. There’s no one else I’d rather be next to than Goldie Hawn.”
Kate Hudson stepped up next to speak about her family. “I was slotted in to talk about my mother, but I have two parents, and they’re both here,” she said, thoughtfully. “I always thought I’d be talking about them at a wedding or something, but since a wedding doesn’t seem to be in our near future, this seems to be my only opportunity.”
Lastly, Witherspoon gave a speech as well, and praised Hawn for being an inspiration to women in film and television. “The first time I ever fell in love with a movie star was Goldie Hawn. She’s continued to inspire me in my entire career. She is a true movie star,” she said. “She shattered all sorts of barriers for women. She changed the possibilities of what women can do in film. Thank you for making us laugh, she has lit up my life. She’s changed my life and she’s quite simply my idol. I love you Goldie.”
