Goldie Hawn is seriously enjoying her comeback!
The veteran actress is in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, goofing off in the photos and looking AH-Mazing at 71!
Doesn’t she seem so much younger???
But even as she was having fun, Kate Hudson‘s momma was also unafraid to tackle more serious issues.
Speaking on ageism in Hollywood, she said:
“You think you’re going to fight the system? You think you’re going to prove to Hollywood when you hit 45 that you’re still a sexy, viable object? No. There’s a certain reality. Does it make me angry? No. I’m not an angry person. I’m not a militant person. Anger doesn’t get you anywhere. It’s not productive.”
She also recalled working on The First Wives Club, and how studio execs were worried three female stars wouldn’t be able to equal a big payoff at the box office.
“Even though we were all stars, [Hollywood] was nervous about the movie. For First Wives, we all took a cut in our salary, we all took a cut in our back end. Because the studios were never sanguine on trusting that women carrying a movie would actually work.”
Well, studios were wrong as that movie went on to gross $180 million worldwide!
Goldie also admitted she had so much fun working on Snatched alongside Amy Schumer after taking 15 years off, and that there might be more films in her future.
“A break from anything we do sometimes is a good thing. And I forgot how much fun it was. I forgot about the perks. Three months in the best hotel ever, looking out at the water. When I had to pack up and leave, I shed a tear. We held each other on our last shot and we cried. I came out of that going, ‘Yeah, I could do it again.'”
Yes! More Goldie movies, please!
As for what the future holds? The actress is leaving her options open. She said:
“There’s so much to say about the decades I’ve lived through. I’ve never gone the normal route, whatever that is. If it even exists.”
Please don’t let Snatched be your last film! You’re a gem!
