LOS ANGELES (AP) — Longtime partners Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been honored with neighboring stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In a Thursday ceremony, the 66-year-old Russell said there's no one he'd rather be next to than Hawn. Russell and the 71-year-old Hawn have been together for more than 30 years.
Hawn said at the ceremony that she and Russell have never been celebrated in that way and jokingly asked Russell, "Did we just get married?"
Goldie Hawn has suggested her and Kurt Russell's Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony will make up for them not getting married.
The couple have been together since 1983 but famously have never tied the knot, so the 'Snatched' actress thinks their upcoming joint honour - which will be attended by the likes of her daughter Kate Hudson, 'Hateful Eight' director Quentin Tarantino, and Reese Witherspoon - will be all the more "interesting".
Tarantino: ‘I don’t know how I came up with it’

CANNES DO: Boston and Amherst-bred Uma Thurman has a great gig lined up for herself — she gets to go to the south of France, watch some cool movies and judge them. There’s probably wine and great bread in there as well. According to Deadline.com, Thurman is set to preside over the Un Certain Regard jury at this year’s Cannes Film Festival (May 17-28). That category features works which offer a unique perspective and aesthetic. She’s worked with Quentin Tarantino; no wonder the fest picked her to judge.
The new action-crime-comedy "Free Fire" is rated R — R as in ringing in your ears, the result of really repetitive gunfire.
And "Reservoir Dogs."
We've heard this premise before: Two groups of not-so-nice guys, and one girl, meet for an arms deal at an abandoned factory.
It's a cash-for-weapons swap that should go down smoothly but, as is often the case in movies, all goes terribly wrong.
