Goldie Hawn

Oscar nominee for 'Private Benjamin'
Goldie Hawn (born November 21, 1945) is a Washington, D.C. born actress who began her career as one of the regular cast members on the 1960s sketch comedy show Laugh-In. Noted equally for her chipper attitude and her bikini and painted body, she personified a 60s "it-girl." On the show she would often break out into high-pitched giggles in the middle of a joke, yet in the next moment deliver a very polished performance. She embodied both the concept of the free-loving hippie girl and the determined feminist. Hawn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the 1969 film Cactus Flower . Into the 1970s and 1980s Hawn remained a popular figure in entertainment, appearing in various films (generally comedies.) She gathered great respect as a comedic actress, outspoken on her liberal political views. Her career died down a bit until 1992 when she revitalized it opposite Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep in the film Death Becomes Her. She eventually came full circle playing an aging actress in the late 90s film The First Wives Club opposite Bette Midler and Diane Keaton. Through the late '90s into the year 2002 she has remained popular (in partial thanks to the success of her now adult daughter, actress Kate Hudson). She appeared in The Banger Sisters opposite Susan Sarandon in 2002. Her son Oliver Hudson is also an actor, appearing on the US (WB) TV series The Mountain. She has been in a relationship with Kurt Russell since 1983 and they have a son together, Wyatt. Source: goldie-hawn.biography.ms
