While many are envious of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn‘s long relationship, it almost didn’t happen. Kurt revealed that he didn’t make the best first impression on Goldie when they met. They reconnected on the set of Swing Shift and Kurt said he put his “worst foot forward.”

He said, “When I met Goldie, I was at a time in my life where I was definitely gonna put my worst foot forward when it came to any kind of relationship. I put my worst foot forward, and if you can handle that, then maybe there’s a chance of some reality there of us being together.”

She said, “You want to stay in your power, but you also want to be forgiving. And you want to understand and have compassion for the other person. If you cannot do that, then you’re not giving yourself a real fair chance at a long-term relationship. And that’s a lesson that we all have to learn.”

We just love them together!
