Goldie Hawn on Acting
Thought all of you would like these insights from Goldie Hawn.
“The childlike part of being an actor is a wonderful thing. The act of pretending, dressing up like someone else in hair and makeup, replacing yourself—it’s make-believe. That tool needs to be honed and exercised for the rest of your life. It’s the quality that constitutes wonder, that helps you to realize “yes” is always a better answer, to go out and do things with bravery and fearlessness, and it creates more energy around you. We get older every day, but youth is a state of mind. That was the thing about Death Becomes Her—I thought it was an incredibly prophetic film. It asks, ‘What would happen if we lived forever?’ And the reality is, it would be terrible! Getting older and sharing the stages of life as we move through them is probably the most important thing we can learn to do.”
