Goldie Hawn has opened up about taking a hiatus from acting. The star and her daughter Kate Hudson sat down together and did an interview for Interview magazine where Goldie discussed her career and how she feels about Hollywood.
One of the questions that Kate had for her mom was why she started seeing a therapist after she started acting. Goldie explained.
“What I wanted in life was happiness, to be honest, and in my young life, I always read about how screwed up Hollywood was. I just wanted to be normal. I wanted to have a normal life. I wanted to have children. And when I was picked out of a chorus line and cast in a TV series, I got anxious, so I took the bull by the horns and went to see a psychologist. And it was the greatest move I ever made.
“At that early age, in order to reduce your sense of imbalance, you have to learn more about yourself. So after about a year of studying — revealing some of my deepest fears inside that room — I realized that the way people see me, as a star, has nothing to do with me.”
Goldie’s new movie Snatched is her first work since the 2002 film The Banger Sisters. She explained why she took such a long break from the industry.
“I believe that life is about doing. It’s about changing. It’s about transitioning. I can’t imagine, as a human being, not being able to grow. When I turned 50, I asked some of my girlfriends, all actresses of the same age, ‘What are we going to do now?’ I wanted to go live somewhere for a while, learn archaeology, or take part in healing the world on some level. I wanted to dig deep and say, ‘Who am I now? What do I have to offer? What do I have to learn?'”
