Happy birthday, Goldie Hawn! Our favorite blonde bombshell turns 69 today and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than by taking a look back at her best moments over the decades.
And no -- we assure you, that's not Goldie's lookalike daughter, Kate Hudson. Yes, Hawn and her daughter, 35, still look a lot alike -- even though Goldie is nearing 70. With her feathery, blonde hair and those bright-blue doe eyes, it's easy to see why.
Hawn originally started her career in dance, quickly landing a role in Disney's "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band," where she met Kurt Russell, who would later become her long-time love. She also appeared regularly on Rowan & Martin's "Laugh-In" in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It wasn't long before Hollywood was taking notice of her vivacious, bubbly persona. She went on to win an Oscar for her performance in "Cactus Flower," and enjoyed other memorable roles in films like "The First Wives Club" and "Private Benjamin."
But Hawn's personal life has been just as intriguing as her professional career -- most notably, her long-term romance with fellow actor, Kurt Russell. They've been together over 30 years -- a Hollywood anomaly.
She's also, of course, known for her bombshell good looks (she posed for Playboy in the '80s). But earlier this year, she was scrutinized for her appearance at the Oscars -- with speculation that she'd gone overboard with plastic surgery.
But we'll repeat now what we said then, Goldie, we love you just the way you are.
