Goldie Hawn has never taken herself too seriously. Combining blonde bombshell looks with comedy chops, she’s always embodied fun. And unlike some fellow actors of her generation, her star has never waned. Rising to fame on the NBC comedy show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In in the latter half of the ’60s, she quickly became a household name. By 1969, she had scooped an Oscar and a Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her stellar performance in Cactus Flower

For more than three decades she played a string of leading roles in box office hits, including Nancy Meyers’s Private Benjamin, Death Becomes Her (with Meryl Streep), and The First Wives Club. She’s a powerhouse, and the mother of three children who followed her into the business: Oliver Hudson, Kate Hudson, and Wyatt Russell. After meeting on the set of Overboard in 1983, Hawn and actor Kurt Russell have been love’s young dream ever since. Having never felt the need to get married, they’ve gone against the grain, and proven that enduring partnerships do exist in Hollywood. 

These archival photos of Hawn reflect the same energy and elegance she emanates today at 75.
