Goldie Hawn has had an ''incredible ride'' with Kurt Russell.
The 68-year-old actress has been in a relationship with the actor - with who she has 27-year-old son Wyatt - for 30 years and though they are very different people in terms of their personality, she thinks they have stayed together for so long because they want the same things from life.
She said ''Relationships are always challenging because you're living with someone and two people are very different but it really is about, 'What are your core values? What are the things that matter to you?'
''Kurt's quite different in many ways to what I am, and vice versa, but we want the same things out of life and so it's been an incredible ride with him.
''There's nobody like him. He's one of a kind. He's true blue and everything he says he means. You might not like it, but he sure does mean it. He's not political, he doesn't play games. I just have a lot of respect for him.''
Goldie, who was previously married twice and also has children Kate and Oliver Hudson with second spouse Bill Hudson, thinks though marriage is ''nice'', it has never been particularly important to her and Kurt.
Asked by talk show host Jonathan Ross why they have never married, she said: ''I don't know, we just didn't get married. The relationship itself is a big deal. Marriage is a ceremony, which is nice, and it's a promise, which is nice, but you make that promise every day....
''Marriage does not necessarily mean that you're going to stay together and it really has to do with your will to be together, your devotion and your ability to listen to each other.''
