Career

1960s

Hawn began her acting career as a cast member of the short-lived situation comedy Good Morning, World during the 1967-1968 television season, her role being that of the girlfriend of a radio disc jockey, with a stereotypical "dumb blonde" personality. Her next role which brought her to international attention was as one of the regular cast members on the 1960s sketch comedy show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. On the show, she would often break out into high-pitched giggles in the middle of a joke, and deliver a polished performance a moment after. Noted equally for her chipper attitude as for her bikini and painted body, Hawn personified something of a 1960s "It" girl. This persona was parlayed into three popular film appearances in the late 1960s and early 1970s: Butterflies are Free, There's a Girl in My Soup and Cactus Flower. Hawn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Cactus Flower (1969), which was her first film role and which co-starred Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman.

Her career slowed down a bit until 1992, when she appeared opposite Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep in the film Death Becomes Her.

Religion

Hawn became involved in Eastern philosophy in 1972. She is a practicing Buddhist and has raised her children in both Buddhist and Jewish traditions. She has stated on the Larry King Show that she is a Jewish Buddhist, but neither more Jewish nor more Buddhist.[6] Even though she might have converted to Buddhism, she has said in an interview that she never had to forsake her Jewish heritage to embrace Buddhism.

One school official reports that in one classroom, the children went from having the most behavioral problems, to having zero behavioral problems.


Hawn realizes that many parents oppose bringing Buddhist methods into public schools, and recently stated in Greater Good magazine, published by Greater Good Science Center: "There will always be people who see this as scary, or as some kind of Eastern philosophy that they don't want for their kids." Hawn adds, "Mindfulness gives kids a tool for understanding how their brain works, for having more self-control."

Goldie Hawn Picture Galleries (511 words)
A goggle-eyed, dizzy blonde, Goldie Hawn's looks alone make her a natural for the kind of breathless comedy in which she originally made her name.
These first two films and the subsequent Dollars (1971) utilized Hawn's "blonde" persona, but in 1972, she hinted that she concealed more than a talent for perkiness and comedy when she played a young woman who helps her blind lover deal with his past in Butterflies Are Free.
Hawn showed even more depth as a wife who springs her husband from jail in hopes of keeping her child in Sugarland Express, Steven Spielberg's 1973 feature film directorial debut.
