Oscar-winning actress, producer and comedienne Goldie Hawn has been entertaining us for a very long time. She’s actually 71 now and has reached that time in life where partings are often more common than new beginnings. But with age also comes wisdom. And after one of her close friends died, she took to social media to share a memory and some good advice for the young people of today.

If it seems like Goldie Hawn has been on screens or stages her entire life, that’s because she pretty much has. She began taking dance lessons at the age of just three and, in 1955, used her skills to dance in a production of the famous ballet The Nutcracker. It was clear even back then that she was destined for the spotlight – and so it proved, as in 1964 she had her first major stage role, playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet.

After that, she continued to both dance and act on stage. And her talent for “dumb blonde” roles served her well in 1967, when she took on that persona for the sitcom Good Morning, World. The following year saw her also join the cast of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, a show that increased her profile considerably.
