Goldie Hawn Career
“Laugh-In” is where Goldie Hawn first achieved fame nationwide. Goldie’s portrayal of a bikini-clad blonde who regularly giggled on the program made her a sexual icon of the era. From 1968 to 1973, “Laugh-In” aired 140 episodes over six seasons. Goldie went on to create a very successful film career. Goldie won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her performance in the 1969 film Cactus Flower, in which she played a severe dramatic role that successfully separated her from her Laugh-In persona. Several notable film roles followed in the 1970s, including a leading role in The Sugarland Express, the first feature film directed by a young man named Steven Spielberg.
Goldie Hawn continued to appear on television during this time, most notably in two specials at the beginning and end of the decade: Pure Goldie in 1971 & The Goldie Hawn Special in 1978, which served as a de facto comeback after two years away from the public eye to raise her son. A few months later, after the release of Foul Play, a comedic thriller in which she starred alongside Chevy Chase, her career on the big screen was also back in shape. 1980 saw the release of another television special, Goldie and Liza Together, starring Liza Minelli. Later that year, she would portray one of her most recognizable roles in the film Private Benjamin. The portrayal earned her a second Academy Award nomination, and her film career continued to flourish throughout the 1980s, with Jonathan Demme’s Swing Shift and Kurt Russell’s Overboard.
Hawn continued to appear in films throughout the following decade, collaborating with Steve Martin in Housesitter and The Out-of-Towners, Mel Gibson in Bird on a Wire, and Meryl Streep in Death Becomes Her. Then, in the 2000s, she began to settle down and become more selective with her projects, making a film with Warren Beatty in 2001, followed by The Banger Sisters in 2002, her last feature film for approximately 15 years. She released her autobiography A Lotus Grows in the Mud in 2005.
Hawn eventually returned to the big screen in 2017, starring alongside Amy Schumer in Snatched. She also portrayed Mrs. Claus alongside Kurt Russell in the holiday-themed Netflix film The Christmas Chronicles, a role she reprises in the sequel. After the series’ cancellation, Goldie Hawn did not participate in the 2019 Laugh-In reunion special, despite being one of the show’s most successful cast members.
