Hudson continued, "I forgot to post a note on my parents 34th Anniversary so I figure why not now. Love you madly, deeply, profoundly." Sparks flew between Hawn, 71, and Russell, 66, on the set of the 1983 comedy "Swing Shift," and they've been together ever since.
Born on March 17, 1951, the boy fortunately did not have to wait long enough to commence his journey in the field as Walt Disney Studios surprisingly took notice on his talent and eagerly signed him to a one-decade contract by the 1960s.
Throughout the rest of the era, Kurt therefore busily underwent his stints in a series of Disney's film features, including "Mosby's Marauders" (1967), "The Horse in the Gray Flannel Suit" (1968), also "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" (1969).
The Hollywood legends raised three kids together —their son, actor Wyatt Russell, 30, and also Kate and her brother, actor Oliver Hudson, 40 — Hawn's kids with ex-husband Bill Hudson.
On April 24, 1963, Russell guest starred in the ABC series Our Man Higgins, starring Stanley Holloway as an English butler in an American family.
Russell was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture for his performance in Silkwood (1983). He was nominated for an Emmy Award for the television film Elvis (1979), also directed by Carpenter.
During the 1980s, he starred in several films directed by John Carpenter, including anti-hero roles such as army hero-turned-robber Snake Plissken in the futuristic action film Escape from New York (1981), and its sequel Escape from L. Russell starred in other films, including Overboard (1987), Tombstone (1993), Stargate (1994), Death Proof (2007), The Hateful Eight (2015), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. He joined The Fast and the Furious franchise in 2015, having starred in Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious. Russell played little league baseball throughout his grade school years and also on his high school baseball teams.
He began acting on television in the western series The Travels of Jaimie Mc Pheeters (1963–64).
In the late 1960s, he signed a ten-year contract with The Walt Disney Company where, according to Robert Osborne, he became the studio's top star of the 1970s. Mac Ready in the remake of the horror film The Thing (1982), and truck driver Jack Burton in the dark kung-fu comedy action film Big Trouble in Little China (1986), all of which have since become cult films.
