Goldie: Buddhist, Jew, Jesus Freak

'For the rest of my life, everything I do has to be with good intentions.'

Continued from page 10

I'll bet they were more embarrassed.

I'm sure they were. Anyway, they were awfully cute and they left. We didn't want to leave each other, and at the end of the next day we ended up checking into the Holiday Inn. We just checked in to the Holiday Inn. The whole thing was just too much fun. And then when I had to leave that weekend, he dropped me off back at my mom's.

How old were your kids then?

Katie was three and Oliver was five.

What I thought was that I would never find a man who loved my children as much as I did. And I actually did--my prayers were answered.

Does Kurt have a spiritual practice?

His is being out in nature. He can sit out and look at the lake for hours. It's an interesting mind; it's not very tumultuous.

So do you have an "interfaith" relationship?

Listen   Goldie on Kurt Russell's spirituality


He respects mine and I respect his-but there again, that's not important because you realize it's all a subjective belief system. I don't think "Well, I can't be with somebody who doesn't believe what I do, or I can't share my spirituality." Your spirituality is shared by your actions and your interconnectedness with your family and everybody else. It's not conceptual. What's going to make you whole is your self-reflection and examination of yourself.

I guess if he has such tranquil mind, then your need to search is a probably a good match.

It is a good match. I've often thought about it. What if Kurt was a guy who was spiritual and was always searching? I would probably go mad!
