Goldie Hawn And Kurt Russell’s Son Inherited Good Looks And Love For Acting

Date November 30, 2017 15:33

When two screen legends come together as a couple, it can only be expected that great things are bound to happen. So when Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn came together it was obviously a match made in heaven. Both actors had been successful in their own right.

Goldie Hawn won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in "Cactus Flower" (1969) and maintained bankable status for over three decades since 1970, appearing in films such as "Butterflies Are Free" (1972), and "Private Benjamin" (1980), for which she received an Academy Award nomination.

Kurt Russell, on the other hand, was The Walt Disney Company's top star of the 1970s and has gone on to bigger and better things since then.

When Kurt Met Goldie

While filming the 1968 Sherman Brothers theatrical musical "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band," Kurt and Goldie met for the first time.

However, it was not until they met again in 1983, while filming "Swing Shift," that they became involved. Kurt had just finalized his divorce from Season Hubley, with whom he had a son, Boston, and Goldie had 2 children, actors Oliver and Kate Hudson, from her previous marriage.

Nevertheless, Kurt and Goldie got together and remained so ever since. Their relationship produced a son, Wyatt, born in 1986.

Wyatt Russell - The Youngest of The Russells

Wyatt was born in Los Angeles, California, in 1986. He is the youngest child of both Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. He has three older siblings, Boston Russell, and Oliver and Kate Hudson, who are both professional actors. He is also the grandson of actor Bing Russell.

He had a few early forays into acting, appearing in an uncredited role in "Escape from " (1996), as Todd in "Soldier" (1998), however, it wasn't until the mid-2000s that Wyatt began to take his acting career seriously.

Prior to that, he was a professional hockey player, playing for numerous amateur and professional hockey teams, including the Richmond Sockeyes, Langley Hornets, Coquitlam Express, Chicago Steel, Brampton Capitals, the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Groningen Grizzlies. His hockey career was cut short due to injuries.

Wyatt Finds His Way Back To Acting

It would be expected that having older siblings who were successful actors and parents, who were screen gods, would have made Wyatt feel a bit distant, but it didn't. "We’ve always had closeness as a family," He said, in an interview, "That’s our anchor.”

When he finally decided to join the family business, he said his parents gave him advice about acting:

The best advice was that there’s no real advice. ‘There’s no magic pill I can give you, there’s no magic thing I can say to make you good or make you feel comfortable.’ It was literally the basics: be on time, know your lines and be a nice guy.

Since his return to acting, Wyatt has appeared in a wide range of movies, including films such as "Cowboys And Aliens" (2011), "22 Jump Street" (2014), and "Goon: Last of The Enforcers" (2017).

If the careers of his older brother, sister, and parents are any indications, it is safe to say we can expect great things from Wyatt in the near future.
