Who is Boston Russell?
Boston Oliver Grant Russell was born on 16 February 1980, in Los Angeles, California USA, and is best known as the son of actor Kurt Russell with his first wife, actress and singer Season Hubley. He’s been exposed to the entertainment industry from an early age thanks to his lineage.
The Wealth of Boston Russell
How rich is Boston Russell? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned through success in his various endeavors, but also apparently through the of his father, who has a net worth estimated at over $70 million. As he continues his endeavors, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early LifeSince his birth, Boston has been surrounded by fame being the first biological child of actor Kurt Russell. His father has been known for being a part of numerous popular films, such as the remake of “The Thing”, and “Silkwood”. Recently, he’s been a part of projects such as “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “The Fate of the Furious”.
The marriage of Boston’s parents only lasted from 1979 to 1983, as soon afterwards his father started a relationship with actress Goldie Hawn, and appearing with her in numerous projects. Since then the two have remained together, and Russell has been considered the father of Goldie’s children from the preview marriage. This also meant that Boston became quite close to his new extended family, including actress Kate Hudson. While his father continued in his acting career, his mother remarried, but soon divorced again. She retired from professional acting in 1998.
Working in the Entertainment Industry
While several of Russell’s family members mostly appear in front of the camera, he prefers to work behind the scenes, including a few projects alongside his father. In 1996, he served as a production assistant in the film “Executive Decision” which starred his father Steven Seagal as well as Halle Berry, and was Stuart Baird’s directorial debut. Boston would also appear in the TV news magazine “60 Minutes” in 2005, in a segment entitled “Goldie” featuring Goldie Hawn, who now considers him as a stepson.
Eventually, Boston decided to steer away from the entertainment industry though no one really knows the specifics of why. One of the reasons many sources believe is that like most people born into the spotlight, they prefer keeping out of it. He has since been seen only a few times by the media, but despite the complex family tree they have, the family remains close knit showing good relationships with each other.
Much like the children of many actors in the industry today, Boston keeps his private life away from the camera and there is not any known romantic associations with any popular personalities. The media has not reported him being linked to anyone, nor has he been involved in any controversies. There are rumors that say that he is already married, though there has never been any confirmation. Even his famous family say very little about him in interviews or in public appearances.
Is Boston Russell on Social Media?
One of the reasons there is a lot of mystery surrounding Russell is because of his lack of presence on any of the major social media websites. He does not have any accounts associated with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – the very few pictures of him available online are of when he was young and the media seems to be somewhat confused as to what he actually looks like, due to his desire to keep out of the spotlight. Reports say that he’s been seen with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn a few times at red carpet events.
Boston Russell’s Family
While Boston is the only son of Season and Kurt, he shares a half-brother in Wyatt Russell, the only child between his father and Goldie Hawn – Wyatt was a former professional ice hockey player turned actor, appearing in films such as “22 Jump Street” and “Cowboys & Aliens”. His stepmother on the other hand has also appeared in numerous high profile films throughout her career, including “Cactus Flower”, “Foul Play”, and “Private Benjamin”. Her siblings from her stepmother include Oliver Hudson who is known for his work in the series “Nashville” and “Rules of Engagement”, and Kate Hudson who is best known for finding popularity in the film “Almost Famous”, and has also appeared in “Deepwater Horizon”, “Fool’s Gold” and “You, Me and Dupree”. Goldie Hawn’s children created controversy when they declared Bill Russell their father much to the dismay of their actual biological father, actor Bill Hudson.
