After 34 years together, it was only fitting that Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell should receive their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a special joint ceremony. The couple shared a sweet kiss at the podium as they were honoured for their long-term careers in showbusiness in front of a host of famous guests, including daughter Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon and director Quentin Tarantino.

Addressing the crowd, Goldie, 71, joked: "Can we just get married? We've never had a celebration like this before! Thank you to my beautiful daughter and my other beautiful daughter," she continued. "This means more to me as I start reflecting on things… That star is part of 'yes'… I said yes to Kurt Russell. I said yes to [ex-husband] Bill Hudson, and without Bill I wouldn't have had Kate and Oliver. I wish my mum and dad could see me."

Kurt, meanwhile, said he owed "a special debt of appreciation to my family" as he thanked his mum and sisters in the audience. "Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me." The 66-year-old touchingly added: "Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don't hold a candle to that. There's no one else I'd rather be next to than Goldie Hawn."

During the ceremony, Goldie's daughter Kate also took to the stage to pay tribute to her parents. "I was slotted in to talk about my mother," she said. "But I have two parents and they're both here. I always thought I'd be talking about them at a wedding or something. But since a wedding doesn't seem to be in our near future, this seems to be my only opportunity."

The 38-year-old continued: "Their philosophy is family first. As their child, what really stands out is that somehow in their phenomenal careers, they’ve maintained normalcy with all their children. They never hid away their love for making movies. For me and my brother, we grew up with artists. These shining stars standing next to me, their real legacy is what they've instilled in us kids."
