Goldie Hawn has signed on to play Amy Schumer's mother in an upcoming film directed and produced by the Trainwreck producer and star. This will be Goldie Hawn's first film role since starring in The Banger Sisters back in 2002.

On a recent episode of Good Morning America, Goldie Hawn's daughter, Kate Hudson, shared her excitement about her 70-year-old mom's upcoming role.

"I can't wait!" she said. "I'm so excited! She hasn't worked in 14 years."

Goldie Hawn said Friday, during an interview with The Today Show, that she considers raising her two children--Oliver and Kate Hudson--to be an even greater accomplishment than her career as an actress.

Her love of children doesn't stop there either. The Private Benjamin star says her hiatus from the film world served a philanthropic purpose. She and longtime partner Kurt Russell worked to create The Hawn Foundation--a children's education charity. The foundation introduces new teaching techniques to teachers in schools worldwide to make sure kids are well-versed in social skills--an important facet of their emotional wellbeing.

Do you remember when Goldie Hawn first appeared on TV in the late 1960s on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In? It's hard to believe she is now 70 years old.

It will be fun to see Goldie Hawn back on the big screen when she appears alongside Amy Schumer. Alas fans have a while to wait for her return to the film world, as the as yet unnamed film isn't set to premiere until 2017.
