Hollywood couples aren’t exactly known for being everlasting. In the glitzy world of failed romances and high divorce rates, one couple seems to have maintained a strong and stable 32-year relationship. Yes, I’m talking about Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. So what’s the secret to their perfectly – imperfect – relationship?


For Peoples January issue, Hawn opened up about her relationship with Russell, her foundation The Hawn Foundation and the MindUP program she has pioneered with schools around the globe to help kids center themselves in a stressful world. Mindfulness is something she incorporates into her real life, and it also happens to be the foundation of her relationship to Russell.


“In relationships, particularly love relationships, people are impatient,” she told People. “They don’t listen”. Communication and patience is the foundation of a healthy relationship. Taking the time to have a conversation and respecting one another is key – but no one is perfect. Not even our favourite celeb couples.


“We don’t have a perfect relationship, sometimes I get mad and sometimes Kurt gets mad. It’s normal. Continuing to to listen and grow is important because we get into bad habits in relationships. We’re cognizant of these things in our relationships, being mindful and caring and listening”.


Life is messy and the same goes for relationships. It’s not always easy. You need to listen, love and respect – and you need to be willing to work at it and stick by your significant other when times get tough. “We have our ups and downs live everybody else,” Hawn told People. “You have to want to stay together, and we really want to. Therefore you work to be together”. Wise words, and thank you Goldie for reminding us that no relationship is without its flaws.
