Crocodile Dundee is one of the most iconic Australian films of all time – not only for its storyline, but also for the relationship it produced between its stars Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski.
At the time of filming in 1986, Paul was still married to his first wife Noelene Edwards. The pair had met at a Sydney swimming pool back in 1958, where Paul worked as a lifeguard before becoming an actor. Paul was married by the time he was 19, and himself and Noelene went on to have five children together.
They were married for over 20 years, separating and divorcing in 1981, before then remarrying a year later.
By this point, Paul was a household name thanks to his roles on The Paul Hogan Show and his comedy sketches on A Current Affair. Then Crocodile Dundee came along, and it propelled him to fame in the US.
The film about a crocodile hunter from the Australian outback going to America turned out to be one of the biggest movies of 1986.
In Crocodile Dundee, Linda played street-smart NYC travel reporter Sue Charlton. Both her character and Paul's had lots of chemistry on screen – and that chemistry extended to off-screen as well. Because ultimately, life imitated art.
