Appearance: Recalls a bushbaby/ Barbie cross: blonde, mildly wacky, large eyes and mouth. The Sun described her as a "Wide-eyed bubblehead", and her status as Peter Pan-ette du jour hints at a cross between innocence and experience.
How does she do it? She "still loves sex". "Great sex and lots and lots of it."
Home: Aspen, Pacific Palisades, California. Of Jewish and Presbyterian parents, she is now a citizen of the West Coast. Goldie on women: "Women understand on a compassionate level the plights of mankind. We're healers and we can work on many different channels at once."
Love interest: She has been with lantern-jawed actor Kurt Russell for 12 years, and one of her three children, Wyatt, 10, is by him. He is a raw Republican, who said: "The first thing I fell in love with was her behind." Goldie said that he "turns on her female energy": she is a Democrat.
Past husbands club: Gus Trikonis (seven years) - he directs Baywatch - and Bill Hudson (four years, two kids: Oliver, 20, and Kate, 17). The first was "a wonderful man; he never took a dime from me". The latter she called a "Goldie Digger". He called her "a cold-eyed shark".
Hawn-ography: "A smile doesn't cost anything - and it uses fewer muscles than a frown!" she said recently.
Career: Started as a chorus girl. Went on to Rowan and Martin's Laugh- In. Moved to films (Shampoo, Private Benjamin, Cactus Flower, There's A Girl In My Soup). Used to act dumb characters, but has moved on to a wisecracking maven. In First Wives she plays an alcoholic actress past her prime.
The future: Best legs in the cryogenic-preservation parlour.Reuse content
