Goldie Hawn, Oscar-winning Hollywood actress, is interviewed by Kirsty Young for a new series of Desert Island Discs. She chooses her eight discs to take to a desert island.
Kirsty Young's castaway is Hollywood's prototype dizzy blond, Goldie Hawn.
Like most things in Tinseltown the image is somewhat at odds with the reality. Goldie is an Academy Award winner and producer who's been on the A list for 40-odd years, starring alongside Peter Sellers, Walter Matthau and Woody Allen. She's now transmuted from fantasy pin-up to best selling author - she writes parenting manuals and spearheads a childhood learning initiative.
She tells Kirsty about her journey from dancing in sleazy go-go bars to bagging an Oscar, how she coped with the difficulties her early success brought her and how she met her husband of 29 years, Kurt Russell.
