Maybe It's Time to Stop Asking Goldie Hawn Why She Hasn't Married Kurt Russell

11 May 2017 7:45 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Max Mumby / Indigo Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell first met while starring in 1968's The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, but it wasn't until 1983 that they began dating while working on their second joint film, Swing Shift. The couple recently rang in their 34th anniversary, an incredible feat for any couple but especially one made up of Hollywood A-listers. But what is particularly unique about Kurt and Goldie's relationship is the fact that they aren't married. Over their three decades together, they haven't felt the need to "make it official," and it's something that still seems to both fascinate and perplex the public. "A lasting relationship isn't about marriage. It's about compatibility and communication." It feels like in nearly every interview Goldie does with a major publication, she is asked about her choice not to marry Kurt. Despite the fact that she has made her »

What Is the Secret to Goldie and Kurt's Romance? "Family, Fun, Laughs, and Sex"

10 May 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Goldie Hawn is an open book when it comes to her 34-year-long romance with Kurt Russell. During an interview with People, the Snatched actress opened up about her instant connection with him on the set of their 1984 romantic war drama, Swing Shift.

At the time, Kurt had just finalized his divorce from Season Hubley and was already a father to his son, Boston, while Goldie had two kids, Oliver and Kate, from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson, but it didn't take long for their friendship to develop into something more. "What really got me was when I watched my kids when they'd come to the set and how he was with them," she added. "He was amazing with them. He was such a natural." RelatedKurt Russell and »

Movie Poster of the Week: The Early Films of Jonathan Demme

1 May 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

We’re all still reeling from the death of Jonathan Demme, one of the most unpredictable, open-hearted and by all accounts best loved of American filmmakers. I was surprised to learn that he was 73 when he died because he, and his films, always seemed so youthful. The fact that his swansong was the beautifully exuberant Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids only added to that impression of vitality.Many of the posters for Demme’s films are as well known as the films themselves: the Dali-esque death’s head moth for Silence of the Lambs; the cutout of Spalding Gray’s head bobbing in a flat plane of blue for Swimming to Cambodia; an upside-down Jeff Daniels on Something Wild; Pablo Ferro’s Strangelove-esque titles over the Big Suit for Stop Making Sense. And of his later films I particularly like the screen-print look of Man From Plains. But the posters for Demme’s early films, »

Familiar Faces: The Jonathan Demme Players

27 April 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Nathaniel R

Dearest reader, as you've probably heard by now the director Jonathan Demme has passed away at 73. He died due to esophageal cancer. I had run into him at a screening of La La Land  this past September and I took the opportunity to tell him how much Rachel Getting Married  meant to me (he joked about being first with interracial weddings for Rosemarie deWitt onscreen). Then we talked Swing Shift for a little bit as we had just discussed it on this very site. I was so saddened by this yesterday that I couldn't do much but tweet my farewells. The words wouldn't come out for a lengthy piece but then, surprise, I remembered I'd written the following piece that was never published (oops) to coincide with the release of Ricki and the Flash (2015). I filled in a few of the blank spots and adjusted some verbs »

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell Were Caught Doing This by the Cops on Their First Date

27 April 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for 34 years now and are one of Hollywood's most enviable couples, but even they went a little overboard on their first date. During an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.'s talk show on Friday, the Fate of the Furious actor talked about their sexy night out and how they ran into trouble with the cops. The duo was costarring in the 1984 romantic war drama, Swing Shift, at the time, and Kurt recalled going to the Playboy Club with Goldie to help get into character for his role. "I said, 'You know, if we have to dance in this, you're a professional dancer. You know how to dance, but I just need to figure something out,'" he told Harry. "She said, 'We should go somewhere and dance to that kind of swing music.' I said, 'I'll find that.' The Playboy Club »

"Jonathan was as quirky as his comedies and as deep as his dramas. He was pure energy, the unstoppable cheerleader for anyone creative. Just as passionate about music as he was about art, he was and will always be a champion of the soul."

Jonathan Demme Appreciation: A Filmmaker Who Turned His Humanity Into Art

26 April 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The great filmmakers who came to prominence in the 1970s — and Jonathan Demme, who died Wednesday, was one of them — had stylistic traits that made them iconically identifiable. Robert Altman had his multi-character hubbub, Martin Scorsese had his volcanic rock ‘n’ roll virtuosity, and Francis Ford Coppola had his lavishly scaled operatic grandeur. But Demme, vivid and stirring as his filmmaking voice was, had no such obvious signature. You could almost say that he was defined by his lack of signature.

What defined a Demme film was the open-eyed flow of its humanity, the way his camera drank in everyone on screen — it didn’t matter whether the character was a goofy truck driver, a derelict billionaire, the troubled wife of a mobster, a new wave rock ‘n’ roller, or a serial killer — and took the full measure of their life and spirit. For Demme, the magic of movies resided »
