Someone once told Kurt Russell that his acting career "looks like it was handled by a drunk driver. " And Russell's reply? "I said I can't deny that," he said, laughing.

It's crowded at the beach. Actors Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have listed their Malibu beach house for $14,749,000 — joining about 50 other homes priced at $10 million or more in the coastal city.

It has a screening room, an office and a detached guest/meditation room. The master suite features floor-to-ceiling windows and a beachfront balcony for a total of four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms.

It's hard to believe that Russell, a still-youthful 54, is a 45-year veteran of show business.

A Saturday night in the Rockies: Goldie Hawn's 11-year-old son, Oliver Hudson, and two sleep-over friends have just left for a fast ski run down a nearby slope; 8-year-old daughter Kate Hudson and one sleep-over friend are jack-knifed over a pillow, watching a videocassette of "Saturday Night Fever"; 17-month-old son Wyatt Russell is chasing Snowball, the all-white cat, and Hawn, perky as ever at 42, with hardly a line or wrinkle, is gobbling a quiche-without-crust dinner of broccoli and

The plaid pants did it. And the moment during a practice when Herb Brooks barked an order to his players, hitched up his shoulder and skated away.
