The blonde actress, 59, started dating 54-year-old Russell after meeting on the set of SWING SHIFT in 1982, following two broken marriages to GUS TRIKONIS and BILL HUDSON.
In her autobiography A LOTUS GROWS IN THE MUD, Hawn explains, "Swing Shift was a bitter experience, but without it I might never have met Kurt. He is the love of my life and we're now one of Hollywood's longest-established couples.
"We are often asked why we have never married. I laugh it off and say, 'Been there, done that.' It didn't work for either of us."
Russell was previously married to SEASON HUBLEY, mother of his son Boston.09/05/2005 13:46
