The Private Benjamin star began dating actor Russell in 1983 after they co-starred in Swing Shift, and they have become one of few Hollywood couples whose romance has stood the test of time - without the need for marriage rings.
Hawn is adamant she has no plans to take the relationship to the next level - because they are "happy" with their lifestyle.
Speaking on U.S. talk show The View on Friday (30Sep11), she said, "We're not gonna get married. I mean, we're happy. I still like the idea that I'm his girlfriend. And, in a way, the kids like it. We asked the kids about marriage early on and we said, 'Shall we get married?'... and they said, 'No, no!'"
But Hawn insists she would never force her own views on to her daughter Kate Hudson, who is preparing to wed for the second time after becoming a new mum.
Hawn explains, "I was married twice. I think that there's a sense of idealism really about wanting to be married and have a family... My feeling is our journey is our journey, and there isn't any way we're gonna put a stop or should (put a stop to it) because it's all a learning process. How are we gonna learn? How are we gonna know?
"We follow our instincts and impulses. If they're for the good, which is to create a family, to do something good, more power to you. If it works out, that's awesome. If it doesn't, well, you know you're part of a very large statistic. So I think the whole way of looking at it is with an optimistic view."
Hudson and British rock star Matt Bellamy announced their engagement in April (11) and welcomed their first child together, baby boy Bingham, in July (11). The Almost Famous actress was previously wed to The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson.
It's the latest casting saga in the production's history after Matt Dillon, Craig Robinson and Brendan Fraser quit the film earlier this month (Jul11).
They have already been replaced by Billy Burke, Michael Jai White and Christian Slater.
The trio will play hippies who set out to bribe a Hollywood producer, played by Glover, according to Variety.
The Almost Famous star gave birth to the couple's first child on Saturday (09Jul11) and now the Muse frontman has tweeted about the new arrival, Bingham Hawn Bellamy.
The proud dad writes, "So happy! Just had a baby boy, Bingham 'Bing' Hawn Bellamy. Born 7Ib 12Oz, on 9th July.
"Mum and baby are strong and healthy. Mum was a warrior, Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!"
Hudson, the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn, is also mother to seven-year-old son Ryder, from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson.
Bingham is Bellamy's first child. The couple became engaged in April (11).
At some point in the early years of the 21st century a bunch of Hollywood executives must have gotten together and decided that animated films should be made for all audiences. The goal was perhaps to make movies that are simultaneously accessible to the older and younger sets with colorful imagery that one expects from children’s films and two levels of humor: one that’s quite literal and harmless and another that’s somewhat subversive. The criteria has resulted in cross-generational hits like Wall-E and Madagascar and though it’s nice to be able to take my nephew to the movies and be as entertained by cartoon characters as he is I can’t help but wonder what happened to unabashedly innocent animated classics like A Goofy Movie and The Land Before Time?
Disney’s Winnie The Pooh is the answer to the Shrek’s and Hoodwinked!’s of the world: a short sweet simple and lighthearted tale of friendship that doesn’t need pop-culture references or snarky dialogue to put a smile on your face. Directors Stephen J. Anderson and Don Hall found some fresh ways to deliver adorable animation while keeping the carefree spirit of A.A. Milne’s source material in tact. Their story isn’t the most original; the first part of the film finds Pooh Piglet Tigger and Owl searching for Eeyore’s tail (a common plot point in the books and past Pooh films) and hits all the predictable notes but the second half mixes things up a bit as the crew searches for a missing Christopher Robin whom they believe has been kidnapped by a forest creature known as the “Backson” (it’s really just the result of the illiterate Owl or is it?).
The beauty of hand-drawn animation all but forgotten until recently is what makes Winnie the Pooh so incredibly magnetic. There’s an inexplicable crispness to the colors and characters that CG just can’t duplicate. It’s a more personal practice for the filmmakers and should provide a refreshing experience for audiences who have become jaded with the pristine presentation of computerized imagery. The film is bookended by brief live-action shots from inside Robin’s room an interesting dynamic that plays up the simplicity of youth ties it to these beloved characters and brings you right back to memories of your own childhood.
With a just-over-an-hour run time Winnie the Pooh is short enough to hold the attention of children but won’t bore the parents who will love the film mainly for nostalgic musings. Still it’s the young’uns who will most enjoy this breezy bright and enchanting film that proves old-school characters can appeal to new moviegoers.
It was a weekend of babies in the celebrity world, as Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy welcomed a baby boy into the world on Saturday night. A rep confirmed that the Oscar-nominated actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy in Los Angeles, who weighed 7 lbs. 12 oz. This little bundle of joy is Hudson and Belamy's first baby together, and he'll join big brother Ryder, Hudson's 7-year-old son with ex-husband Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes (Kate certainly likes those musician types doesn't she?).
Hudson and Bellamy officially announced their romance in late spring 2010 and confirmed Kate's pregnancy in January 2011. Hudson initially shot down rumors of tying the knot with her Grammy-winning beau, stating, "I don't feel it necessary to get married," on the British chat show The Graham Norton Show. Yet on April 27th the mother of two debuted an engagement ring (worth an estimated $200,000) on the Today show that nearly knocked poor Matt Lauer out of his seat. Hudson slyly remarked, "I haven't really announced it, I was waiting for someone to notice." Who wouldn't notice that thing?
Does the couple plan on having more kids in the future? It's highly likely. Hudson told Marie Claire last month that "I love being pregnant.... I could be pregnant all the time." But for now it's just the start to a wonderful family with a brand new baby for Grandma Goldie to spoil. Hudson, Bellamy and the baby are expected to spend time together at Bellamy's home in London while he records a new album. Congrats to the happy parents!
The Almost Famous star and her rocker boyfriend Matt Bellamy became the proud parents of a little boy on Saturday (09Jul11) and Hudson's mum was among the first visitors.
She was spotted heading into Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday and she was clearly enamoured with her new grandson.
In a post on her Twitter.com page, Hawn writes, "Thank you all for your good wishes for the birth of our grandson! We are over the moon! Kate and baby happy and healthy! Blessings abound."
The as-yet-unnamed baby is the second child for Hudson - she has a seven-year-old son, called Ryder, with rocker ex Chris Robinson. The newborn is Muse frontman Bellamy's first child.
The actress, 32, gave birth to a baby boy.
Leading up to the delivery, Hudson told reporters she did not know the sex of her unborn baby - but suspected it would be a girl.
The couple's first child together was born in Los Angeles.
Hudson has a seven-year-old son, called Ryder, with rocker ex Chris Robinson. The newborn is Muse frontman Bellamy's first child.
The couple became engaged in April (11).
Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Craig Robinson all joined to the cast of Freaky Deaky, the adaptation of Elmore Leonard's crime novel from director Charles Matthau, according to Variety.
The story revolves around a Detroit cop in 1974 who finds himself pitted against a group of '60s radicals plotting to bomb a limousine. Unsurprisingly, each actor is playing a role that looks exactly like a role they would play. Dillon will be a cop. Fraser will be a former hippie activist and current extremist. Robinson will be a former Black Panther (also an assistant to the character Woody Ricks, played by previously-cast William H. Macy). So all in all, these are really brave choices, you guys. Really brave.
"I got to say I love Chris Robinson, loved him, still do. I loved Alex (Rodriguez). We had a tremendous time together. I think Kate has been fortunate with all the men she's gotten close to." Kurt Russell has warmed to all the men his partner Goldie Hawn's daughter Kate Hudson has fallen in love with. The actress is now pregnant and engaged to her rocker fiance Matt Bellamy.
The Hollywood actress is already mother to seven-year-old son Ryder, from her marriage to rocker Chris Robinson, and she is expecting her second child with her British fiance, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy.
Hudson admits this pregnancy has been considerably different as she battles through nasty bouts of sickness.
She tells FOX411's Pop Tarts column, "I was sicker this time. I have more adverse reactions to certain foods. But it's easier mentally. I know what it feels like and I know what that is. I remember the sensations."
