Goldie Hawn had a booming career in the 1970s. She started her acting career on the show Good Morning World in 1967. After that, she appeared on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In as a regular performer, and her career really took off. She worked in movies consistently until about 2002.

Then, Goldie didn’t act for about 15 years! When asked about the dry spell, she said, “I wasn’t going to wait for a phone to ring. And I certainly wasn’t going to continue to produce, because I produced for like 25 years and I didn’t want to do that anymore. I’d done it, I did it, it was done. Great, but now it’s time to move on.”

Goldie saw a double standard in Hollywood, where men get more opportunities later in life. She was ready to hang up her acting and producing hat until she got an opportunity she couldn’t pass up. Actress Amy Schumer was working on a movie in 2017 called Snatched and she wanted Goldie to play her mother in the film.
