Goldie Hawn on Overcoming the "Illusion" of a Perfect Relationship

Aired on 12/14/1987 | CC tv-pg
While they had worked together before, in 1983 Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell fell hard for one another on the set of Swing Shift. For more than 30 years, the couple have defied odds by staying together and supporting each other through the thick and thin of a long-term relationship.

In 1987, on The Oprah Show, Goldie explained how she and Kurt kept their relationship strong when they began to exit the honeymoon phase, and how believing in the "illusion" of an ideal relationship has dangerous downsides.
