Russell is a licensed pilot.

Many sources have indicated that Russell made his film debut in an uncredited role in Disney's "The Absent Minded Professor" (1961), but in a 1997 interview with Larry Mendte of the TV show "Access Hollywood", the actor stated that he was not in the film.

"You know, I feel when an audience sees my name attached to a film, they think it'll probably be a pretty good movie. The movies I do, if we make them well, will be fun to watch. They may not be the best movie of the year, and I may not be your favorite actor, but people come up to me all the time and say, 'I like the movies you do'." --Kurt Russell, quoted in MOVIELINE, January-February 1996
