  • A goggle-eyed, ditzy blonde, Goldie Hawn's looks alone make her a natural for the kind of breathless comedy in which she originally made her name. Though she has built a lucrative career with her screen persona of a vivacious, giggly, and befuddled naif, Hawn's onscreen antics conceal her real-life level-headedness: Beneath the wide expanse of her blue eyes lies a shrewd, intelligent, and multi-talented woman. Born November 21st, 1945, Hawn was the daughter of a musician in Washington, D.C., though she grew up in a Jewish neighborhood in suburban Maryland. At the age of three, she took her first dance lesson, and by the age of 17, she was managing a dance studio while studying drama at American University. In 1964, she danced professionally at the Texas Pavilion of the New York World's Fair, and then began appearing in chorus lines in such musicals as Kiss Me Kate, Guys and Dolls, and The Boyfriend. She eventually moved to California, where her first break came when an agent saw her dancing on the Andy Griffith Show and cast her in Good Morning World, a short-lived comedy series. From there she was cast as a dancer in an innovative comedy-variety show hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. It was on Laugh-In (1968-1970) that Hawn became popular. Originally a dancer on the show, her bikini-clad body painted with funny slogans and designs, she was given a few lines and proved herself a talented performer in a winning, air-headed way.Hawn made her first foray into feature films as a dancer in The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band (1968). Her acting debut came a year later playing Walter Matthau's ditzy, bohemian mistress in Cactus Flower (1969); she won an Oscar for her role, making it an inarguably auspicious debut. Later that year she appeared opposite Peter Sellers in There's a Girl in My Soup. 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. Two years later, she starred as Warren Beatty's girlfriend in Shampoo, further exhibiting her capacity as both a comedic and dramatic actress.Subsequently, Hawn continued to work steadily throughout the '80s and '90s, appearing in films of widely varying quality. Some highlights include the successful Private Benjamin (1980), for which Hawn earned her second Best Actress Oscar nomination, Seems Like Old Times (1982), and The First Wives Club (1996), in which she co-starred with Diane Keaton and Bette Midler. Hawn has two children by her second husband, comedian Bill Hudson, and one by her companion since 1986, actor Kurt Russell. She and Russell met on the set of Swing Shift (1984) and have since starred together in such films as Overboard (1987). Following daughter Kate Hudson's success in the wake of Almost Famous (2000), Hawn hit the big screen again in the notorious box-office bomb Town and Country (2001). Though that film did little to re-ignite her appeal as a box office draw, her turn as a free spirited former groupie in the following year's The Banger Sisters drew favorable reviews from critics and audiences and proved a solid indicator that the talented comic actress still had what it takes to bring in the laughs.

Oh, and give my regards to Schwartzman and Heineken!
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Well the truth of the matter is it's all mine, the boat, the money, everything is all mine.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Are you aware that Joey can't read? And Travis only reads smut magazines? I can never get him out of the bathroom.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
I speak French! Do I know what I said? Yes I do. I must've learned in Paris. When was I in Paris? In the Navy?
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Grant's having another nervous breakdown, he thinks he's God. Keep him busy.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"

Grant Stayton III
What's love got to do with marriage?
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Well, I'm glad you've finally come to your senses. I was prepared to sue you. I don't know who I am, but I'm sure I have a lawyer.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Listen to me, medical people. As of now, I have a life history of a DIRTY garbage scow and a breakfast of EXTREMELY RUNNY eggs-over-easy. Now I REFUSE to be INCARCERATED in this semiprivate room.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
These gnats keep landing on my wet nail polish. I guess I'm supposed to walk around with their little corpses stuck to my fingers, is that it?... It's easy for you to say. You don't have to sit out here in the brine with your perm frizzing to oblivion. I look like a bushman.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
What is this gelatinous MUCK, Andrew? When I tell you to pack staples, must I specify that you are to pack *good* caviar and not this $1.99 fish bait? Caviar should be round, and hard, and of adequate size, and should burst in your mouth at *precisely* the right moment.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
ANNIE GOOLAHEY...where in God's name did I grow up, Dogpatch?
Dean Proffitt Carpenter
No, not there honey over in Goober, Idaho but it's a nuclear waste dump.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
I'm not a bitch. ANDREW. Are you going to bring me my lemon or do I have to squeeze it from my hat?
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Well, the entire civilized world knows that ALL closets are made of CEDAR.
Dean Proffitt Carpenter
[in a backwoods accent] Well up here in Elk Snout ma'am see we don't know 'bout them closets, nor bathrooms neither. Shit woman, you're lucky I am house broke.
Dean Proffitt Carpenter
Yeah, well... that's 'cause we used to do it in the closet.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Oh stop with the sex stories.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Well try to control your bodily noises so I can hear myself think.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
You know forks were invented so that man could at least make a pretence of separating himself from the apes.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
I think I'd remember if I had 3 children...
Dean Proffitt Carpenter
That's something you like to do, go fishing for oysters at night
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
Oysters in a cold ocean at night, doesn't sound like me!
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
I'm a short, fat slut.
Joanna Stayton/"Annie Proffitt"
But WHAT? My children are in need of medical assistance! And you can sit here and smugly lecture me on the importance of tests? Tests which exist to pigeonhole childrens potential, a thing which cannot *possibly* be measured, least of all by anal compulsive HUNS! And my husband may be a "large child," but that's none of your business! And my children may be rotten, but they're MINE. And I think that they're bright, and sensitive, so I have no doubts whatsoever about their intelligence. I do however have *serious* doubts about YOURS.
Elise Elliot Atchison
I'm Monique's mother!
Helen Sharp
Do you remember where you parked the car?
Judy Benjamin
I did join the Army, but I joined a different Army. I joined the one with the condos and the private rooms.
