His wealth has also been elevated thanks to the success of his parents, with his father having a $70 million estimated net worth. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career
Even during his birth, Boston caught a lot of media attention, being the first biological child of actor Kurt Russell. He grew up with three step siblings from his father’s other relationships. Wyatt Russell is the son of his father and Goldie Hawn while Kate Hudson was Hawn’s daughter from her marriage to Bill Hudson. The family grew up in an unusual extended setting but was able to work together.
He grew close with his father and stepmother and both of his siblings would also pursue careers in acting. He did try his hand at acting in small roles but discovered that he did not have the same talent as his family had. He decided to work behind the scenes as a production assistant in his father’s projects. He worked on the film “Executive Decision” in 1996. A few years later, he appeared in the television program “60 Minutes” in a segment about his stepmother.
Father – Kurt Russell
Kurt has had a storied career, beginning acting in his childhood. He’s been nominated numerous times throughout his career for works such as the remake of “The Thing”, and “Big Trouble in Little China” which have become cult films. Other starring roles he’s had include “The Hateful Eight”, and “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2”. He was also a part of “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, starring in “Furious 7” as well as in “The Fate of the Furious”.
Boston is from Kurt’s first marriage to Season Hubley, whom he met while filming 1979’s “Elvis”. It was after their divorce that he began a relationship with actress Goldie Hawn whom he’s been with ever since – the couple have appeared in numerous projects together. He is a supporter of the right to bear arms, and said that gun control will not reduce terrorism. He is also a licensed private pilot, and has moved around the country along with his children, but he’s never been public about his son’s life, and prefers to keep him away from the spotlight, which is something that Boston also prefers.
Mother and Stepmother
Boston’s biological mother Susan began her career in supporting roles in the 1970s before working with his father in “Elvis” which she played the role of Priscilla Presley. She had numerous film and television projects during this time but her fame decreased during the 1980s up to the 1990s. During the latter part of her career, she focused more on television work and one of her latest projects is the film “Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror”.
After his parent’s separation, Boston became very close to his stepmother Goldie Hawn, who also found her fame during the 1970s, and has received numerous awards over the course of her career as well. Some of her popular works include “Shampoo”, “Private Benjamin”, and “There’s a Girl in My Soup”. During her later career, she had roles in “Snatched”, “The Banger Sisters”, and “The First Wives Club”. Her children include Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson, but who consider Kurt as their father. She is also the founder of the Hawn Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at helping underprivileged youths. His stepmother is of Jewish descent, though he mentions that spiritual development is more important than religion.
Personal Life and Siblings
For his personal life, not much information is known about Boston’s romantic relationships. Since his youth, he has prioritized his privacy and has seldom shared any personal information, so it is not known if he is single or his married. One of the reasons for the lack of any public information is due to the lack online presence – he does not have accounts in any of the major social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. He has rarely been seen in public with his family.
His half-brother Wyatt Russell is a former ice hockey player, who also tried his hand at acting after his playing career was over. Some of his projects include “Cowboys & Aliens”, “This is 40”, and “22 Jump Street”, and he also starred in an episode of the anthology series “Black Mirror”. His stepsister is Kate Hudson who is known for her award-winning career as well. She rose to prominence for her role in “Almost Famous”, and other projects she’s worked on include “Bride Wars”, “You, Me and Dupree”, and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”. She is also the co-founder of the fitness brand Fabletics, and has also written several books over the course of her career.
