Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell 'Don't Agree on Everything': 'His Politics Are Different Than Mine' (Exclusive)

The actress revealed what the "sticking glue of our relationship" has always been

Goldie Hawn is sharing what keeps her and Kurt Russell bonded even when they don't see eye to eye on everything.

PEOPLE has an exclusive clip from the actress's appearance on the April 15 episode of SiriusXM’s Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, during which she explains what the "sticking glue of our relationship" has always been.

Hawn, 78, points out, "We don't agree on everything. His politics are different than mine. You know, there's all these things that could divide you. But the one thing that we have, the greatest thing in God's world, is our family."

"That is where we thrive and where we have incredible amounts of joy and really focus on that," she adds.

She adds, "The seduction was really his personality and his focus on the children."

"Relationships are hard. They’re not always easy. There’s all kinds of hurdles we go through. There’s things that we believe in, things we don’t believe in, we agree on," she said at the time.
