Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell received his-and-her Hollywood Walk of Fame stars as the longtime couple also celebrated upcoming movie appearances.

The rare double-star ceremony Thursday celebrated the long careers of Russell and Hawn, and some expressed surprise that they had not been honored previously, Variety noted.

"People say, 'Gee, don't you have one already?'" said Hawn, who won a supporting actress Academy Award in 1970 for he role in the movie "Cactus Flower," Variety noted. "We never did."

Russell, 66, whose movie career dates to the 1960s, will co-star in "The Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2," on Friday, while Hawn, 71, will appear with Amy Schumer in the movie "Snatched" on May 12.

Hawn's daughter Kate Hudson spoke at the ceremony, which was also attended by Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon and Academy Award-winner Quentin Tarantino, who directed Russell in "The Hateful Eight," People magazine noted.

"I owe a special debt of appreciation to my family," Russell said during the ceremony, according to People. "Thanks to my kids Boston, Oliver, Kate and Wyatt. Any father would be blessed to be gifted with the lifetime you have brought me.

"Goldie to you, I owe my wonderful life. Simply put Goldie, I cherish you. All of the stars in the sky or the boulevard don't hold a candle to that. There's no one else I'd rather be next to than Goldie Hawn," he continued.

Russell and Hawn, who have been together as a couple for 33 years, are now doing parallel promotional tours to support their movies in Los Angeles, London and New York, reported USA Today.

"We haven't done that in a long time," Hawn said, according to the newspaper. "And even though we're (promoting the films) separately it just is a really fun time in our lives."

The Hollywood Walk of Fame, one of the top tourist attractions in Los Angeles, averages about two additions per month, according to the WalkofFame.com.
