‘She can’t imagine the world without him in it’: Paul Hogans’s ex-wife Linda Kozlowski BEGS Crocodile Dundee star to quit smoking ahead of his 80th birthday amid fears for his health
He soared to fame as the iconic character Mick Dundee in 1986.
But as Crocodile Dundee legend Paul Hogan approaches his 80th birthday, it seems those close to him are beginning to worry about his health – and his ex-wife is begging him to make a change, according to New Idea.
Paul was famously married to Linda Kozlowski, 60, for 23 years after meeting on the set of Crocodile Dundee. The pair share son Chance, 20, together.

But while their marriage ended in 2013, it seems she’ll never stop caring for the actor.
According to reports, Linda has begged Paul to quit smoking as she continues to fear for his well-being – after he was recently spotted lighting up a cigarette immediately after strolling out of a medical centre.
‘Linda used to ride him for smoking in front of their child, and rightly so since Chance now smokes, too,’ the source said.

‘But now Linda is becoming all too aware of Paul’s age. He’s no spring chicken and the years of hard living are starting to show.
‘He’s definitely looking his age, and doctors are paying a lot more attention to him and his health needs than they used to.’
The source added that Linda is consistently badgering Paul to have regular health check-ups, because she wants to have him around for as long as she can.

‘Paul’s had an incredible life and she can’t imagine the world without him in it,’ the source added.
It appears the pair are still incredibly close following their divorce in 2013, where they cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split.
The pair had married in May 1990, and welcomed their son Chance into the world in 1997.
It was reported that Linda married her new partner Moulay Hafid Baba in 2017, after the pair were spotted wearing matching gold wedding bands.
