Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn were honored with a special double Walk of Fame star ceremony in Hollywood on Thursday, and the joyous occasion ended up being a wonderfully emotional experience for the longtime loves.

After the festivities, the cute couple spoke with ET's Nischelle Turner, and reflected on the grand occasion, which saw their daughter, Kate Hudson, and actress Reese Witherspoon deliver touching speeches that made Hawn cry.

"It was tears of joy," Hawn explained. "[I have] so much respect for the girls and it mattered to me what they said, a lot."

Hawn and Russell began dating in 1983 while shooting their romantic WWII period drama Swing Shift, and have been together ever since, yet have famously never married.

The pair have said that many of their friends and family joked that this dual star dedication was sort of like the wedding ceremony that they never had, and Russell said that he had "actually written something that was along [the] lines" of vows, but decided not to read them.

"Everyone always ask the same question," Hawn said, referring to whether or not they will ever tie the knot. "We are kind of having fun with it."

While they might not be officially wed, now that they are immortalized side-by-side on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the pair are really connected forever.

"No one is going to dig that up," Hawn said of their honorary stars. "I don't think so."

"There's nothing you can do about it, so you better get along," Russell quipped.

The pair also opened up about their long love affair, and how they've worked hard to make their relationship successful and to improve their lives and themselves.

"You can't just go along and say, '[This] is the way I am, so whatever,'" Hawn shared. "No, you really try and be better and better."
