Biography

The enduring star power of Goldie Hawn is a fairly unusual phenomenon for a contemporary Hollywood actress. She first gained celebrity through a brief stint as a "dumb blonde" dancer-comedienne on TV in the late 1960s and segued to the movies as an acclaimed supporting player before quickly achieving star status. The now gracefully middle-aged showbiz veteran has maintained her celebrity and pumped up her industry muscle without any major tinkering with her persona. Sharp-eyed viewers may have detected a subtle evolution but, to the general public, she has remained an eternally youthful and joyously giggly girl for nearly three decades. Hawn has long been one of the elite group of actresses who can "open" a major motion picture.
