Snatched star Goldie Hawn, 71, who looks like she’s in a slow-aging contest with Helen Mirren, made — and sometimes produced — $1 billion worth of movies and earned 14 Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe honors. So why has it been 15 years since her last movie?
Partly because, as her character observes in The First Wives Club, “There are only three ages for women in Hollywood; Babe, District Attorney and Driving Miss Daisy.” Nine years younger than Jessica Tandy in the latter film, Hawn would need more years to play Daisy convincingly. Yet she only got Snatched because Amy Schumer insisted on her casting. Like Reese Witherspoon and many other A-list young’uns, Schumer regards Hawn as a role model.
