‘Crocodile Dundee’ Co-Stars Hogan and Kozlowski Are Wed in Australia

From Associated Press

“Crocodile Dundee” star Paul Hogan married co-star Linda Kozlowski on Saturday at the multimillion-dollar mansion he built for her as a wedding gift.

In the two “Dundee” movies, Hogan, 51, played the ruggedly handsome character from the outback who fell in love with an American journalist played by Kozlowski, 33. He also has appeared overseas in television commercials promoting Australian tourism.

The wedding took place in Byron Bay in the northern part of New South Wales state, about 350 miles north of Sydney. Hogan, who started his working life as a painter on the Sydney bridge, built the $2-million mansion for his bride as a wedding gift.


Reporters were barred from the ceremony, which Hogan had said would be attended by about 100 close friends and family as well as a “couple of mates.”

Hogan was married twice before--to the same woman, Noelene. They separated in 1986 but remarried seven months later before finally ending their 29 years together. They have five children.

It was not known if his former wife attended, but Hogan said the children were among the guests. The bride’s parents, Maj. and Mrs. Stan Kozlowski, flew in from California.

Hogan recently completed “Almost An Angel,” a film he wrote and starred in.
