Perhaps they had a change of heart. Actors Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have put a Pacific Palisades property they bought two years ago on the market at $6.5 million -- minus the house. The couple purchased the lot in early 2011 for $5.7 million, public records show, and razed the existing house and swimming pool. The graded lot of more than half an acre is level and has views of the Getty, Century City and the mountains. Russell, 61, starred in "Touchback" (2011) and will star in the upcoming films “The Fix” and “Bone Tomahawk.” Hawn, 67, gained recognition among television viewers in the late 1960s for her role as a regular and dancer on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

Art thief-turned-daredevil rider Crunch (Kurt Russell) - fresh from prison, having been burned by his weaselly partner-in-crime half-brother Nicky (Matt Dillon) - wants nothing more to do with heists. Yeah, right. "The Art of the Steal" is another Last Big Job concoction, albeit one in which writer-director Jonathan Sobol doubles down against staleness by stuffing his cast with appealing character actors who know their way around a profane quip (Terence Stamp, Jay Baruchel, Chris Diamantopoulos, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones)

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. But the boyishly handsome 63-year-old Russell, whom most baby boomers first saw as Jungle Boy on a 1965 episode of "Gilligan's Island," may be selling himself a bit short. His choices might not fit the straight and narrow, but many of his parts over the years have been memorable.

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. Entered through a gated, landscaped courtyard, the Balinese-inspired house backs up to sand dunes and the ocean. The 4,300-square-foot house, built in 1978, was redesigned and renovated in 2005. 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.

Claudia Eller expressed surprise that Kurt Russell, a star with less "marquee value" than A-list actors, was being paid $10 million for the upcoming "Escape From L.A." ("Despite 'Waterworld,' Big Movies Won't Dry Up," Business, July 25). Liz Smith likewise remarked that Russell's fee was a "sensational salary for a guy who's really not quite in the upper echelon of box-office draws" ("Russell's Banking on 'L.A.,' " Calendar, July 21).

"GO, Moj. Go get him, Moj. Do your job." Kurt Russell is lounging outside the lush Malibu home he shares with longtime companion Goldie Hawn, watching his 3-year-old English bulldog, Mojo, bark as he runs after any birds that dare land near the beach property. 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. Sitting in a screening room in Burbank, alone except for my memories and a predisposition to dislike Walt Disney Pictures' "Miracle" for dramatizing an event that needed no theatrical enhancement, I gasped, shaken more deeply than I'd expected.

Los Angeles didn't get chosen as the location for the latest "Fast & Furious" movie, but it did land the spoof version of the popular car chasing franchise. The actual "Fast & Furious 7" has been filming in Atlanta to tap into Georgia's 30% tax credit, though some filming is expected to occur in L.A. But "SuperFast," a parody of Universal's "Fast and Furious" films, began filming in Vernon, south of downtown, last week. The independently produced movie comes from writer-directors Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, known for the "Scary Movie" films and for parodies of "Twilight" with their satiric "Vampires Suck" and the historical epic "300" with their comical "Meet the Spartans.

It's cold and damp, just the sort of night where most movie stars would stay cozied up in their trailers. But tonight one of the stuntmen is doing a daredevil motorcycle jump and Kurt Russell--something of a cycle nut himself--wouldn't miss it for the world. "This guy's really a hot rod," says Russell, pointing to the cyclist. "He knows his bikes. You can bet this gag's going to be really good." In movie parlance, gags are stunts and there are plenty in "John Carpenter's Escape From L.A.

It could be that he recently moved to Canada, or that he doesn't have his own publicist. Or that he's been acting professionally for 41 of his 51 years, or that he once played minor league baseball for the Angels and the Padres. Maybe it's that he flies airplanes, hunts deer and holds political views that oppose those of his liberal friends, or that he hasn't made a career of trading on his dimpled good looks.
