There’s nobody quite like Goldie Hawn! The iconic actress starred in more than 25 movies throughout her illustrious Hollywood career so far, including roles in Private Benjamin, Overboard and The First Wives Club.
The beloved beauty first started in Hollywood when she got her big break on the 1960s TV variety show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. In 1968, she made her film debut when she was cast in Disney’s The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band. The following year, her fame and fortune blew up after she starred in Cactus Flower in 1969, for which she won an Academy Award for best supporting actress.
Following her portrayal in 1987’s Overboard, the There’s a Girl in My Soup actress produced and starred in Private Benjamin in 1980. Aside from the film becoming one of her most memorable roles, she also earned an Oscar nomination. Goldie’s career continued to soar as she appeared in Bird on a Wire in 1990, Death Becomes Her in 1992, The First Wives Club in 1996 and many more.
Following her gig in The Banger Sisters in 2002, Goldie revealed she was taking a break from showbiz to focus on her family. The Golden Globe winner wanted more time with her longtime boyfriend, Kurt Russell, and their blended family of kids including Oliver Hudson, Kate Hudson, Boston Russell and Wyatt Russell.
Fortunately, her Hollywood hiatus came to an end after 15 years when she was cast alongside actress Amy Schumer in 2017’s Snatched. Although she missed being on the big screen, Goldie insisted she didn’t regret the years she took off for her family.
“A break from anything we do sometimes is a good thing,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2017. “I forgot how much fun [acting] was. I came out going, ‘I could do it again!'”
Now that she’s back and better than ever, fans shouldn’t expect the Oscar nominee to retire anytime soon. “Goldie has new goals to accomplish,” a friend of the actress previously told Closer Weekly. “It’s her third chapter, she knows that, and she wants to get it all right.”
Revamping her Hollywood success also includes staying in the best shape possible, both mentally and physically. “[Goldie] always says you’re as young as you feel, and she still feels like a 30-year-old,” the friend added. “She’s healthy, and vibrant, and comfortable in her own skin.”
