Goldie Hawn: “Because if you’re gone for 15 years, people think you’re dead. Literally.” – Snatched
It’s slightly surreal sitting in front of the 71 year-old legend and star of such classics, Overboard, Private Benjamin, Death Becomes Her and The First Wives Club. For starters, Hawn is expectedly youthful, with feathery, bouncy blonde locks framing doe-eyed, elfin features. She’s casual but sexy in slims jeans and off the shoulder black sweater and laughs with a breathy cool. And after 15 years away from the big screen – since her last outing, The Banger Sisters with Susan Sarandon – Goldie appears enthusiastic and exciting for this new chapter in her life. Or as she calls her return to ‘the best job in the world’. And that’s all thanks to current queen of comedy, Ms Amy Schumer. A lifelong fan of Hawn, Schumer stalked and followed the star until she got a proper audience and presented the script for chaotic comedy, Snatched.
