Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell hold hands as they enjoy a trip to the South of France

Goldie Hawn, 75, and partner Kurt Russell, 70, hold hands as they enjoy a sunset stroll around Cannes… before hopping on a speedboat

They were spotted earlier this week vacationing in Cannes, France, amid the town’s high-profile film festival.

And Goldie Hawn, 75, and Kurt Russell, 70, continued their tour of the South of France on Friday as they explored the legendary town together.

The longtime couple held hands while taking a romantic stroll through a busy thoroughfare, before heading out on the water for a speedboat ride.

Goldie was dressed colorfully for the stroll in a red-and-white patterned dress that highlighted her age-defying figure.

She kept her look comfortable with gray sandals, and she brought along a black handbag that she wore tied across her waist.

Kurt looked more casual in a wrinkled white linen shirt that he left unbuttoned and untucked, along with black pants and low-key black trainers.

The two beamed throughout their walk and held hands.

The two were out at sunset as restaurants around the popular tourist destination filled up with diners.

Their trip coincided with the Cannes Film Festival, which is finally happening after going silent for more than two years.

The 2020 edition was canceled due to the raging coronavirus pandemic, and this year’s edition was pushed back from its normal May spot in hopes that more visitors would be vaccinated by July.

Despite Goldie and Kurt’s storied careers, both have only had one film each that was ever entered into the festival’s competition.

The Death Becomes Her actress starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1974 sophomore feature The Sugarland Express, which preceded his blockbuster breakout Jaws the following year.

Kurt didn’t have a film in competition at Cannes until well into his career with the 2007 horror movie Death Proof, directed by Quentin Tarantino.

The film was originally part of the double-bill feature Grindhouse, along with Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror, but Tarantino also released a longer standalone version of his movie.

The longtime lovebirds also cooled down on the water with a speedboat ride.

Kurt could be seen holding Goldie from behind while another person drove them about.

Earlier in the week, the couple enjoyed some sunbathing and swimming from the deck of a luxurious yacht.

The outing was reminiscent of their 1987 cult-classic comedy Overboard, in which Goldie played a haughty heiress who falls overboard from her yacht and loses her memory.

Kurt stars as a carpenter whom she stiffed on a bill, and he tries to get revenge by tricking her into believing she’s his wife.

The film earned a gender-swapped remake in 2018 starring Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez.
