Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have an enduring, inspiring love story. The Hollywood mainstays have been together for 40 years.
On Thursday the lovebirds – who were last seen on Valentine’s Day– were spotted walking hand-in-hand around New York City looking very much in love.
The Overboard stars were dressed casually.
Goldie, 77, was all in black as she had on leggings, a top, fitted jacket, fanny pack and sunglasses.
Kurt, 71, looked distinguished in jeans and a cream V-neck sweated with a blue t-shirt underneath.
Long lasting love: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn were spotted walking hand-in-hand in New York City on Thursday
These latest photos come just two days after some endearing photos of the couple on Valentine’s Day were released.
In one of those snaps, Russell fell laughing onto Hawn’s shoulder as they sat together on the border of a planter in New York.
Goldie and Kurt met on the set of 1966’s The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band but they didn’t get together as a couple until each of them had been married and divorced.
By the time they met again on the set of 1983’s Swing Shift, Goldie was divorced from Bill Hudson and Kurt was divorced from Season Hubley.
During an appearance on Loose Women in 2015 Goldie quipped that ‘we’ve been married before, it didn’t work, so why do it again?’
She reasoned that ‘marriage ends up being a business deal because at the end of a marriage, no matter how long or short it is, somebody owes somebody money.’
And she thinks not being married makes their bond stronger.
‘There’s something psychological about not being married,’ she said on Loose Women in 2016, ‘because if gives you the freedom to make decisions one way or the other. So for me, I chose to stay, Kurt chose to stay and we liked the choice.’

Goldie rose to fame on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In and is a comedy legend.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, she used her talent to try and lift the spirits of her friends and fans.
The Private Benjamin star started an Instagram challenge encouraging fans to post videos of themselves or their loved-ones laughing.
‘Laugh guys and shoot it and put it all over and let everybody know that there is a piece of us that everyday can feel happier,’ she said.
She started the laughing challenge because the lockdowns had her crying three times a day.
So in love: The Hollywood couple looked very in love as they walked through New York City
The First Wives Club actress said she worried about how people were holding up during the COVID-19 lockdowns.
‘The reality is that the people that really I’m worried and concerned about are the people that are actually incarcerated or they feel that they are in their apartments,’ she said during an appearance on Good Morning Britain.
‘It’s not a house. It doesn’t have a garden they can go out into. It doesn’t have these things,’ she continued.
She knew that she was ‘very, very lucky and I’m incredibly grateful,’ but she couldn’t help but think about those less fortunate.
‘What I do feel is a tremendous angst, a tremendous sadness,’ she said. ‘I find that every day honestly I cry probably three times a day because it hurts me to think that there’s abuse going on. There’s anger going on. And this all has to do with confinement, fear, uncertainty, what’s going to happen.’
