Telling the hilarious story of their long-ago first date, Russell said the cops actually caught the couple having sex.
“We were told to go get a hotel room, which we did,” Russell laughed while explaining the night during an interview on Harry Connick Jr.’s talk show airing Friday.
The date started out innocently enough with a World War II movie and continued on into the night at the famed Playboy Club.
“We left and we both agreed night wasn’t over yet,” he said, adding that they went to the house that Hawn was renovating at the time.
“We eventually found our way upstairs looking at imaginary furniture and we were in the imaginary bedroom now and we are realistically having sex when the police walked in,” he recalled, “We had to break into the place to get in so the next thing I see is a flashlight and Goldie and I are like, ‘What?’ It was bizarre and weird.”
He added, “It was a lot of fun, I can’t believe it was a long time ago.”
The house they were caught in now belongs to Hawn’s daughter, Kate Hudson.
Russell, 66, and Hawn, 71, are not married but have been together for 34 years.
The “Snatched” actress said in an interview last year, “We’re always asked why we are not married. Why? What is marriage going to do for us?”
Maybe breaking and entering is the key to their lasting love.
