MORE INFO ON GOLDIE HAWN: Goldie Jean Hawn (born November 21, 1945) is an American actress,

film director and producer, whose career has spanned more than four decades. Hawn is perhaps best known for her roles in Private Benjamin, Foul Play, Wildcats, Overboard, Bird on a Wire, Death Becomes Her, The First Wives Club, and The Banger Sisters. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1969 film Cactus Flower. She is also the mother of actors Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson. Hawn has maintained a relationship with her long-time boyfriend, actor Kurt Russell since 1983.

Hawn was born in

Washington, D.C., the daughter of Laura (n?e Steinhoff), a jewelry shop/dance school owner, and Edward Rutledge Hawn, a band musician who played at major events in Washington. She was named after her mother's aunt. She has a sister, Patricia; a brother, Edward, who died before she was born. Through her father, Hawn is a direct descendant of Edward Rutledge, a signatory of the Declaration of Independence. Hawn was raised in Takoma Park, Maryland. Her father was Presbyterian and her mother was Jewish, the daughter of immigrants from Hungary; Hawn was raised in Judaism.

Hawn began taking ballet and tap dance lessons at the age of three, and danced in the chorus of the

Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo production of The Nutcracker in 1955. She made her stage debut in 1961, playing Juliet in a Virginia Shakespeare Festival production of Romeo and Juliet. By 1964, she ran and taught in a ballet school, having dropped out of American University, where she was majoring in drama. In 1964, Hawn, who graduated from Montgomery Blair High School (class of 1963), made her professional dancing debut in a production of Can-Can at the Texas Pavilion of the New York World's Fair. She began working as a professional dancer a year later, and appeared as a go-go dancer in New York City.

Hawn began her acting career as a cast member of the short-lived situation comedy

Good Morning, World during the 1967-1968 television season, her role being that of the girlfriend of a radio disc jockey, with a stereotypical "dumb blonde" personality. Her next role, which brought her to international attention, was as one of the regular cast members on the 1960s sketch comedy show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. On the show, she would often break out into high-pitched giggles in the middle of a joke, and deliver a polished performance a moment after. Noted equally for her chipper attitude as for her bikini and painted body, Hawn personified something of a 1960s "It" girl.

Hawn's Laugh-In persona was parlayed into three popular film appearances in the late 1960s and early 1970s:

Cactus Flower, There's a Girl in My Soup and Butterflies Are Free. Hawn had made her feature film debut in a bit role as a giggling dancer in the 1968 film The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, in which she was billed as "Goldie Jeanne", but in her first major film role, in Cactus Flower (1969), she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress as Walter Matthau's suicidal fiancee.

After Hawn's Academy Award win, her film career took off. She starred in a string of above average and successful comedies starting with

There's a Girl in My Soup (1970), $ (1971), Butterflies Are Free (1972) and Shampoo (1975) as well as proving herself in the dramatic league with the satirical dramas The Girl from Petrovka and The Sugarland Express both in 1974. She also hosted two television specials: Pure Goldie in 1971 and The Goldie Hawn Special in 1978. The latter was a sort of comeback for Hawn, who had been out of the spotlight for two years since the 1976 release of The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox, while she was focusing on her marriage and the birth of her son. On the special she performed show tunes and comedy bits alongside comic legend George Burns, teen matinee idol Shaun Cassidy, popular television star John Ritter (during his days on Three's Company) and even the Harlem Globetrotters joined her for a montage. The special later went on to be nominated for a prime-time Emmy. This came four months before the feature film release of Foul Play (with Chevy Chase), which became a box office smash and revived Hawn's career in the film industry. The plot centered around an innocent woman in San Francisco who becomes mixed up in a murder plot. Hawn's next film, Mario Monicelli's Lovers and Liars (1979), was a box office bomb. In 1972 Hawn recorded and released a solo country LP for Warner Brothers, titled Goldie. It was recorded with the help of Dolly Parton and Buck Owens. Allmusic gives the album a favorable review, calling it a "sweetly endearing country-tinged middle of the road pop record".

Hawn's popularity continued into the 1980s, starting with

Private Benjamin (1980), a comedy which not only starred Hawn but was also her foray into producing. Private Benjamin, which also starred Eileen Brennan and Armand Assante, garnered Hawn her second Academy Award nomination, this time for Best Actress. Hawn's box office success continued with an assortment of pictures, including comedies like Seems Like Old Times (1980), Protocol (1984) and Wildcats (1986) (Hawn also served as executive producer on the latter two) and dramas like Best Friends (1982) and Swing Shift (1984).

At the age of thirty-nine, Hawn posed for the cover of

Playboy's January 1985 issue, which went on to be one of their highest selling issues. Hawn posed in a giant martini glass wearing nothing but a white collar shirt, a loosened black tie, and a pair of red stilettos. The headline read: "A SPARKLING PLAYBOY INTERVIEW WITH GOLDIE HAWN". Her last film of the 1980s was opposite partner Kurt Russell (for the third time) in the 1987 comedy Overboard, a critical and box office disappointment which questioned the likability and bankability of the two paired together onscreen.

Hawn's career slowed down after 1987, but was revived somewhat in 1990 with the action comedy

Bird on a Wire, a critically panned but commercially successful picture that paired Hawn with action favorite Mel Gibson . Hawn had mixed success in the early 1990s, with the thriller Deceived (1991) and the drama CrissCross (1992). But her role opposite Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep in 1992's film Death Becomes Her garnered her much attention. Earlier that year, she starred in HouseSitter (1992), a screwball comedy with Steve Martin, which was a commercial and critical success. Hawn was absent from the screen again for four years, while caring for her mother who died of cancer in 1994. Hawn made her entry back into the film business with producing the satirical comedy Something to Talk About starring Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid, as well as making her foray into directing with the television film Hope (1997) starring Christine Lahti and Jena Malone.

Hawn returned to the screen again in 1996 as the aging, alcoholic actress Elise Elliot in the financially and critically successful

The First Wives Club, opposite Bette Midler and Diane Keaton, with whom she covered the Lesley Gore hit "You Don't Own Me" for the film's soundtrack. Hawn also performed a cover version of the Beatles' song, "A Hard Day's Night", on George Martin's 1998 album, In My Life. She continued her tenure in the '90s with Woody Allen's musical Everyone Says I Love You (1996) and reuniting with Steve Martin for the comedy The Out-of-Towners (1999), a remake of the 1970 Neil Simon hit. The film was critically panned and was not successful at the box office.

In 2001, Hawn was reunited with former co-stars

Warren Beatty (her co-star in $ and Shampoo) and Diane Keaton for the comedy Town & Country, a critical and financial fiasco. Budgeted at an estimated US$90 million, the film opened to little notice and grossed only $7 million in its North American theatrical run. As of 2009, her last film appearance was in The Banger Sisters (2002), opposite Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush.

In 2005, Hawn's

autobiography, A Lotus Grows in the Mud, was published. Hawn has said that the book is not a Hollywood tell-all, but rather a memoir and record of what she has learned in her life so far. Hawn announced in an interview with AARP's magazine that her next film project would be called Ashes to Ashes and co-star her partner Kurt Russell. The film is about a New York widow who loses her late husband's ashes in India.

Hawn's first husband was dancer (later director) Gus Trikonis, who appeared as a Shark in West Side Story; his sister Gina played Graciella, Riff's girlfriend. Her second husband was

Bill Hudson, of the Hudson Brothers, but the two divorced in 1980. They have two children, Oliver Hudson (born 1976) and Kate Hudson (born 1979), both of whom are now actors.

Hawn has been in a relationship with actor

Kurt Russell since 1983, when the two met again on the set of Swing Shift (they had previously met while filming 1968's The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band). The couple have a son, Wyatt Russell (born July 10, 1986), who lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Hawn is stepmother to Kurt Russell's son Boston and she became a grandmother on January 7, 2004, when her daughter,

Kate Hudson, gave birth to son Ryder Russell Robinson. Hawn became a grandmother for a second time when her son, Oliver Hudson and his wife, actress Erinn Bartlett had a son Wilder Brooks Hudson, on August 23, 2007.

MORE INFO ON CHRIS SARANDON:

Christopher Sarandon (born July 24, 1942) is an American actor. He played Prince Humperdinck in the film The Princess Bride, the vampire Jerry Dandridge in Fright Night, Detective Mike Norris in the first entry of the Child's Play series, and provided the speaking voice of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas and its spin-offs. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Leon in Dog Day Afternoon

Sarandon was born and raised in

Beckley, West Virginia, the son of Greek immigrant restaurateurs Mary and Christopher Sarandon. In his teens, he played drums and sang back-up with a local band called The Teen Tones which later went on to tour with such musical legends as Bobby Darin and Gene Vincent. He graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley. He earned his master's degree in theater from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, where he met his first wife, actress Susan Sarandon; they divorced in 1979. Sarandon then married and divorced model Lisa Ann Cooper during the 1980s; they have three children, Stephanie, Alexis, and Michael Sarandon. He went on to marry Joanna Gleason in 1994.

After graduation, he toured with numerous improv companies and became heavily involved in

regional theatre, making his professional debut in The Rose Tattoo in 1965. In 1968, Sarandon moved to New York, where he landed his first television role as Dr. Tom Halverson on The Guiding Light (1969-1973). He also appeared in the primetime TV movies The Satan Murders (1974) and Thursday's Game before landing the role of Al Pacino's overwrought transsexual wife in Dog Day Afternoon (1975), a performance which earned him nominations for Best New Male Star of the Year at the Golden Globes and the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award.

In spite of his recent success in film and television, Sarandon chose to focus on stage work for most of the next decade, appearing in

The Rothschilds and The Two Gentlemen of Verona on Broadway, as well making regular appearances at numerous Shakespeare and George Bernard Shaw festivals in the United States and Canada. He also appeared in a series of television roles, some of which (such as A Tale of Two Cities in 1980) mirrored his affinity for the classics. He also took roles in horror films, this time in co-leads, opposite the late Margaux Hemingway in the thriller Lipstick (1976) and as a demon in the shocker The Sentinel (1977). To avoid being type cast as creepy characters, Chris took on various roles in the years to come, portraying the title role in the made-for-television movie The Day Christ Died (1980). He received accolades for his portrayal of Sydney Carton in a made for television version of A Tale of Two Cities (1980), co-starred with Dennis Hopper in The Osterman Weekend (1983), which was based on the Robert Ludlum novel of the same name and co-starred with Goldie Hawn in Protocol (1984). These were followed by another mainstream success as the hypnotic vampire-next-door in the teen horror classic Fright Night (1985).

He is best known in the film industry for his role as Prince Humperdinck in

Rob Reiner's 1987 film The Princess Bride, though he also has had supporting parts in some other successful films such as the original Child's Play (1988). In 1992, he played Joseph Curwen/Charles Dexter Ward in The Resurrected. He also provided the voice of Jack Skellington, the main character in Tim Burton's animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), and has since reprised the role in many other spinoff productions, including the Squaresoft/Disney video games Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II and the Capcom sequel to the original film, Oogie's Revenge. Sarandon also reprised his role as Jack Skellington for "Haunted Mansion Holiday", a three-month overlay of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, where Jack and his friends take over the Mansion in an attempt to take over Christmas, much as his character did in the film.

Sarandon would later find work on television again with a recurring role as Dr. Burke on

NBC's long-running medical drama ER. In recent years Chris has been seen on stage, film and TV but with fewer roles and without leading roles.

In 1991 he performed on Broadway in the short-lived musical Nick and Nora (based on the

Thin Man film) with Joanna Gleason, the daughter of Monty Hall. Sarandon married Gleason in 1994. They have appeared together in a number of films, including Edie & Pen (1996), American Perfekt (1997) and Let the Devil Wear Black (1999). In the 2000s he made guest appearances in quite a few TV series, notably as the Necromancer demon, Armand, in Charmed, and as superior court judge Barry Krumble and love interest for Judge Amy Gray in six episodes of Judging Amy.

He returned to Broadway in 2006 playing "Signor Naccarelli" in the six-time

Tony award-winning Broadway musical The Light in the Piazza at Lincoln Center. Most recently he appeared in Cyrano de Bergerac as Antoine de Guiche, alongside Kevin Kline, Jennifer Garner and Daniel Sunjata. He is on the Advisory Board for the Greenbrier Valley Theatre in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
