After a whopping 15-year hiatus, Goldie Hawn is set to make her return to the big screen this month alongside Amy Schumer in the mother-daughter comedy, “Snatched”.
Speaking with her real-life daughter, actress Kate Hudson, for the May issue of Interview Magazine, the 71-year-old Academy Award winner unveiled her Hollywood story of how she cultivated such a successful career in film and television.
“This is very dangerous,” Hudson began the interview by stating. “I’ve never had the opportunity to ask you about your career. People always ask me, ‘What advice has your mother given you?’ And my answer is always, ‘We don’t talk about that kind of thing.'”
"Now, let's begin with your relationship with your children: who's your favorite?" @katehudson interviews @officialgoldiehawn for our May issue.

When Hudson asked her mother about what kind of advice she would give a young actress, Hawn said, “I believe you have to start with a craft: you don’t just start with a dream. You’ve got to put a lot of work in. If you want to pursue acting, then you go to acting class. If you want to be a dancer, then you learn to dance, which is what I did.”
“Dreams sometimes don’t work out,” the actress added. “But what will carry you through your life is the authenticity of who you are. Start with learning how to hammer a nail into a piece of wood. And be really good at it. Learn what it is to sweat. Learn what it is to fail. Learn how to take rejection. Don’t personalize it.”
Hudson then questioned Hawn on why she chose to wait 15 years to make her next movie. “Because I believe that life is about doing. It’s about changing. It’s about transitioning,” answered Hawn. “I can’t imagine, as a human being, not being able to grow.” She added, “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.”
