Boston’s Father Kurt Russell
Kurt Russell has had an illustrious career that began right from his childhood. He has starred in so many movies throughout the years and earned himself awards and nominations for works such as the remake of The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China. The movies went down in history as cult films.
More recently, the actor has made his appearance with starring roles in movies like The Hateful Eight and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Furious 7, and The Fate of the Furious.
Kurt first met Season Hubley at the set of the 1979 TV biopic, ‘Elvis,’ which was based on the life of iconic American singer-songwriter and actor, Elvis Presley. Season played the real-life wife of Elvis. On February 17, 1979, they decided to get married. However, their marriage was a short one that lasted four years. The couple separated on May 16, 1983. Soon after the divorce, Kurt began dating American actress Goldie Hawn. The family dynamic changed with Goldie’s children from her earlier marriage to Bill Hudson joining the fold.
Growing up, Boston was close to his father, stepmother, and his siblings. Both of his siblings eventually ventured into acting with successful careers. Kurt has stated that he never put any pressure on his children to follow in his footsteps. Instead, the great actor allowed his kids to make their own decisions. He is quoted to have said, “I believe very much in allowing my children to be who they are, and that is how I was brought up.”
Kurt is known to be very encouraging and supportive of his children. He explained that: “Sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed… I tell my kids: ‘you know yourself when you’ve done a good job, and you know when you have let yourself down… Don’t blame other people or let them give you a sense of your value.” Very inspiring words, if you ask me.
Although Kurt is still with Goldie Hawn, many people have wondered why they are not married. According to Goldie Hawn, she likes the idea of being his girlfriend, and he likes being her boyfriend also. She has also spoken about monogamy, calling it a very tough order. Kurt Russell also shares similar beliefs and has said he did not want to get involved in marriage.

Among his notable works is his acting and work as a production assistant in the American thriller action flick Executive Decision (1996) directed by debut director Stuart Baird.

He has also been on some TV shows. It is hard to know what Boston is up to these days in terms of work, but we hope that he is building a successful career for himself.
