Actress and gorgeous comic genius Goldie Hawn is coming back to theaters after a 15 year absence. To mark her return, Hawn gave an interview to Interview, conveniently conducted by her daughter Kate Hudson. (Interview mag, founded by Andy Warhol, was built on the concept of sympatico interlocutors.) Hawn is also making the regulation new movie rounds — she chatted with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show this week.
Hawn’s new film, her first since 2002’s The Banger Sisters, is Snatched, a comedy with Amy Schumer. (That makes two comic geniuses in one movie, if you’re counting.) Hawn didn’t walk away from Hollywood for a decade and a half because she wasn’t successful. Hawn and The Banger Sisters, in which she co-starred with Susan Sarandon, got reviews like this:
“I’m glad [to watch The Banger Sisters] primarily because of Goldie Hawn. She’s infectious and likable in this movie, but not in that ditzy way we remember.” Roger Ebert
“Goldie Hawn infuses Suzette, the world’s most luscious middle-aged groupie, with the same concentrated sunshine her daughter Kate Hudson gave to the role of a much younger rock ‘n’ roll camp follower in ‘Almost Famous.’ ” New York Times
“The charm of two actresses at the top of their game” SF GATE
“Hawn is clearly having a blast as the smoky-voiced Suzette. There’s never any doubt that she can still rock.” Austin Chronicle
