Goldie Hawn has revealed the secrets to her long-lasting relationship with Kurt Russell.

The actress first met Rusell 34 years ago when they were working on the set of Swing Shift and, judging by their heart-warming display on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week, the couple have learned the secret to keeping their love alive.

Speaking to People magazine, Hawn (70) shared her secrets to a long-lasting relationship.

"Love, gratitude, compassion, because sometimes every man or every woman will drive their partner crazy. Family. Fun. Laughs. Sex," she said.

"If you don’t nurture that, and remember, you’re done."

The Snatched star, who is mother to Kate (38) and Oliver (40) with second husband Bill Hudson, said that monogamy is a "very tough order."

"You’re in the prime of your life, you are attracted to other people, potentially, you have fantasies about that. It really runs the risk, if you will, if you’re not aware that you could maybe screw up a really good thing by doing that.

"I’m sure I’ve been party to it, and Kurt’s been - we’re all normal this way. It’s like, 'You really liked that guy, didn’t you?' Or the woman says, 'You were looking at her.' My answer would be, 'Of course. Why not? She’s beautiful.' Would you want a man who doesn’t look? Who doesn’t feel inspired by the beauty or the curves of a woman’s body? Or the way she is? I mean, come on. We’re human beings. There is, I guess, an elasticity to the relationship. Otherwise it’s going to break, just like a rubber band."
