Goldie Hawn has been a favorite of mine for years! She is and has been an exceptional actress with the all-American look and charisma. She is beautiful, smart and humble, to boot. Hawn is a master at her craft. Her craft being acting.  

Her first aspiration was to be a dancer. Goldie Hawn began her dancing career at a very young age and found small successes in that field. Ultimately, she was cast on Rowen & Martin’s Laugh-In, in which she portrayed the “dumb blond” personality. Hawn appeared on Laugh-In, as a regular with her chipper attitude, high-pitched giggles and curvy, bikini-clad, painted body. She obviously commanded a lot of attention! Although her character was very stereotypical, it was not a true portrayal of the real Goldie Hawn.  She is no dumb blond!

Goldie Hawn is extremely intelligent and insightful. Besides being known as an iconic actress, she has also been a successful movie director, producer and occasional singer… somewhat of the total package! And make no mistake friends… she has always been in control of her career.  

Appearing in, Laugh-In, turned out to be quite prosperous for Hawn. She was ultimately recognized for her natural talent and sex appeal. Soon she would be cast in movies including Cactus Flower, There’s a Girl in My Soup and Butterflies Are Free. There is nothing like a beautiful face to draw attention to a movie…. or anything else, for that matter!

Although she has long enjoyed celebrity status, Goldie Hawn is no different from other people, both notable and not so notable. She has loved and lost, being unsuccessfully married two times. She ultimately found her one true love, Kurt Russell. Although they never “legally” married, they remain committed to their longtime relationship. The pair is often referred to as one of Hollywood’s sweetest couples. I especially enjoyed the movie, Overboard, where they acted opposite each other.  

For some reason, Goldie Hawn just does not appear to age. She has always had a beautiful and youthful look. In my opinion, physical appearance is only part of what makes a person beautiful or not. Plenty of people are easy to look at but become ugly the second their mouths opens. Have you ever heard the saying, “beauty is only skin deep?” It sounds cliché, but it is so true.

Hawn is beautiful, lighthearted and optimistic. She has the type of personality that lends itself to roles in comedies. She is a natural when it comes to acting and has been going strong for years, always landing roles that seem like they were written just for her. There are a lot of movies that I can either take or leave as far as seeing them in the theater. Often, I will wait until they finish their run and watch them at home when I get a chance. When it comes to Goldie Hawn, though, I will run right to the theater every time because I can’t wait to see her in action!
