Meet Linda Kozlowski’s Family
Linda Kozlowski was once married to her Crocodile Dundee co-star, Paul Hogan, an Australian actor, comedian, writer, and producer. In 1986, his role as Michael Dundee in Crocodile Dundee earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and an Academy Awards nomination for Best Original Screenplay.
The duo met while filming the movie and somehow, their on-screen romance became real and on May 5, 1990, they got married. Before this time, the two were both once married. Hogan left his first wife Noelene Edwards shortly after he met Kozlowski and after their divorce was finalized for the second time in 1990, he tied the knot with the actress. Their union produced a son named Chance Hogan in 1998.
In October 2013, Kozlowski filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences”, and their divorce was finalized in July 2014. It was agreed that Hogan would retain all the rights to his Crocodile Dundee character and the film company, while Kozlowski received a one-off payment of $6.25 million. None of them will pay child or spousal support and they will both share custody of their son, Chance. Linda Kozlowski was also allowed to live in their Los Angeles home for four years or until she remarries.
Some years later, Linda revealed the actual reason for her divorce from Hogan saying the major issue in their marriage was the fact that they had no shared interest. This, according to her, led to them drifting apart. She also stated that she was tired of being in the actor’s shadow.
Despite the death of their marriage, Linda Kozlowski and Hogan still share a very close bond and spend a lot of time together. She maintains that their divorce was amicable.

However, the former actress has neither confirmed or denied the speculations.
