Goldie Hawn says making The Christmas Chronicles 2 with Kurt Russell was like being on honeymoon

They’ve been together for 37 years but haven’t acted together in a movie since 1987’s Overboard.

And on Monday, Goldie Hawn told Ellen DeGeneres that working with Kurt Russell on Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles 2 had felt ‘just like a honeymoon.’

The couple made the holiday film earlier this year in Vancouver, Canada, and Goldie explained: ‘We’d go out and have dinner and we were just together and it was intimate – it was just the two of us. 

‘I just thought it was the most fun time ever. It felt like our honeymoon.’
