Making speeches to honor the Hollywood couple were Hawn’s daughter, actress Kate Hudson, actress Reese Witherspoon and director Quentin Tarantino.
“I always thought I’d be talking about them at a wedding or something but since a wedding doesn’t seem to be in our near future — ever — this may be my only opportunity!” Kate Hudson said.
“Their real legacy is what they have instilled in us kids -— our tribe -— that they created that they so vehemently protect and defend, the relationship they fiercely refuse to lose sight of together, and the deep feeling of love and nurturing they reserve for the most important thing we have in this life: family. So that’s what these stars represent to me.”
Kurt Russel is one of the good guys out in Hollywood. He is not afraid to stand up for what he believes no matter the consequences in that liberal mecca.
He has been criticized for standing up for 2nd amendment rights and for standing up for President Trump.
Hawn and Russell, who co-starred together in the film “Overboard,” have been together since 1983.
Hawn, 71, found fame on the TV show “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” and won an Academy Award for her role in 1969’s “Cactus Flower.” She appeared in films like “Sugarland Express,” “Death Becomes Her” and “Private Benjamin.”
Russell, 66, started acting as a child and has appeared in numerous TV shows including: “Gilligan’s Island,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” “The Virginian” and “Gunsmoke.” His film credits include, “Silkwood,” “Escape from New York” “Tombstone” and “Swing Shift.” He stars in the film, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” opening nationwide on Friday.
