Boston Russell is best known as the first son of Hollywood ace actor Kurt Russell, who he had with his first wife Season Hubley. Although he was born a celebrity baby, Russell’s eldest child leads a very private life, unlike his half-brother Wyatt Russell, who is heavily involved in the family business. In fact, Boston’s seclusion has led to much more interest in what is going on in his life. Follow us as we explore some facts about Boston Russell.
Boston was born Boston Oliver Grant Russell on February 16, 1980, in Los Angeles, California, USA, the son of Kurt Russell and his then-wife Season Hubley. As the child of parents who were stars in Hollywood, Boston became a celebrity baby who attracted a lot of attention in the media. However, he never fully engaged himself in Hollywood, which made him less well known.
Although Boston didn’t follow in his parents’ footsteps to become an actor, he did have some roles behind the scenes.
In the 1996 film Executive Decision, in which his father played the lead role of David Grant, Boston was one of the production assistants. The American thriller film also featured such well-known names as Steven Seagal, Halle Berry, Oliver Platt, Joe Morton, and others. Executive Decision received lukewarm reviews from critics, but was a box-office hit, selling for $122.1 million at the world’s box offices compared to a budget of $55 million.
In 2005, he appeared as himself – as the stepson of Goldie Hawn in an episode of the Goldie segment of CBS’ 60 Minutes news magazine.
Boston Russell Married/Wife, Kids
Russell did a perfect job keeping his private life away from the media. Although he was born into an incredibly popular family whose members are well known to the media, Boston has decided to continue to keep his distance. He does not have a social media account, so details of his personal life are not known to the media.
Therefore, it would be completely absurd to say that Boston Russell is an unmarried man just because the media does not know about his personal life. The truth is that Russell’s personal life, including whether he was married and had children, is best known to him. The easiest channel to find out more about Boston would be his father, Kurt, or his brother, the stepbrother Wyatt, but both hardly ever talk about Boston in the media.
Boston Russell Parents
The biological parents of Boston are Kurt Russell and Season Hubley. His parents met on the set of the 1979 television movie Elvis, in which Kurt played the role of Elvis Presley and Season appeared opposite him as Priscilla Presley. Kurt’s role earned him a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award as an outstanding leading actor in a miniseries or movie.
Later in 1979, the parents married in Boston and one year later they welcomed their first child in Boston. Together the parents of Boston starred in Escape from New York, one of Kurt Russell’s iconic films.
Unfortunately, the parents from Boston did not stick together for too long. Their marriage broke up four years later in 1983. After the divorce, the Boston mother continued to act and married David Hayball in 1992, but as her first marriage, it was short-lived and ended two years later, in 1994. The union did not produce any children. In the late 1990s, Hubley retired from acting.
On his father’s side, almost immediately after his divorce from Season, Boston’s father Kurt began a romantic relationship with actress Goldie Hawn, whom he met on the set of Swing Shift (1984). Kurt and Goldie Hawn have remained in a romantic relationship ever since, but have never been married.
Boston Russell Family
Thanks to the mixed family of his father Kurt and stepmother Goldie Hawn, Boston can count Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson (who had Goldie from her previous marriage to actor/musician Bill Hudson) among his family.
Russell also has a blood-related half-brother, Wyatt Russell, the only biological son of Kurt and Goldie. Wyatt Russell was born on July 10, 1986. He is best known for his role in 22 Jump Street (2014). Before becoming an actor, Wyatt Russell was a professional hockey player. He is married to stylist Sanne Hamers, whom he met in the Netherlands.
