  • How you not love Goldie

    I think that Goldie Hawn is one of the all time great actresses of these times. She is the essence of what acting should be. She makes every oart she plays believable and you are into the character she plays totally. She can play any part that is given to her. She has a natural ability to make you laugh and make you cry. She plays each part she gets with such conviction. In "Overboard" she went from playing a hoitie toidy rich woman to a poor and humble wife. Though decieved into playing the wife she played both parts well. I give her a 10+ on her acting ability.moreless
