Goldie Hawn began her acting career in the short-lived CBS situation comedy Good Morning, World. She played a stereotypical "dumb blonde" character who was dating a radio disc jockey.

It was her next role, as a regular cast members on the sketch comedy show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, which broadened her reach and garnered her some international attention. The show ran from 1968–1973 but she had already established herself as something of an “It Girl” in the 1960s so at the show’s conclusion she had no problems landing roles. 

Her first major film role was in Cactus Flower (1969), for which she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. From there the bombshell kept churning out roles and earning awards and Goldie’s still rocking it today.
