Goldie Hawn at 67: Charity, Cycling, and Grandchildren
Goldie Hawn gained fame in the 70s, 80s, and 90s as a comedic actress in movies such as Overboard and Death Becomes Her. The 67-year-old actress may have put aside her acting career a decade ago, but she is still making the rounds in Hollywood circles.
Since stepping aside and allowing her daughter, Kate Hudson, to take over the family acting business, Hawn has kept herself busy lending her name and image to charity. According to a Los Angeles Times report, the 67-year-old actress was spotted just this week at a charity event in Cannes, France, where the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival is being held.
Hawn attended the Foundation for AIDS Research’s (amfAR) annual Cinema Against AIDS charity auction. She was joined by stars such as Zachary Quinto, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Renner, Adrien Brody, Christoph Waltz, and amfAR Ambassador Janet Jackson. AmfAR has stated that this year’s auction raised $25 million for HIV and AIDS research.
When she’s not lending her name to AIDS research, the retired actress spends time with her longtime boyfriend of 30 years, Kurt Russell, as well as her children and grandchildren. She is also an avid cyclist. Hawn chronicles her love of cycling through her Twitter feed, and also shows that she still has a sense of humor:
