Goldie Hawn says working with Kurt Russell on Christmas movie was like a ‘honeymoon’

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been together for over 35 years but have only acted together five times.The couple’s most recent movie, “The Christmas Chronicles 2,” has them playing Santa and Mrs. Claus in a feel-good holiday season film that includes magical reindeer and elves.This is Russell’s second go-around as old St. Nick but Hawn’s first full-length feature as Mrs. Claus — she only had a brief cameo in the first film. Oscar-winner Hawn, 75, told Fox News she didn’t blink an eye at working with her significant other. Their first time sharing a movie set was in the 1968 Disney musical, “The One and Only Genuine Original Family Band.” Russell was 15 at the time and Hawn at five years older had a small part billed in the credits as “Giggly Girl”.GOLDIE HAWN AND KURT RUSSELL REVEAL SECRETS TO THEIR 37-YEAR RELATIONSHIPThe duo made more memorable movie magic nearly 20 years later with “Overboard” and pairing for the new holiday film proved to be more than Hawn had hoped for. “I just was going to work to tell you the truth,” she admitted. “But what it was, was actually a great break from everyday life and a new way of being together, which was great.”
