Goldie Hawn Discusses Harvey Weinstein Drama, And Looks Back At Her Possible 'Chicago' Role
Goldie Hawn is looking back at a precarious time in her career working with the less-than-favourable Harvey Weinstein. The actress talks on the 90's film, Chicago.
Goldie Hawn remembers the 90's!
Goldie Hawn appeared on Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live, and is sharing some details to Andy Cohen about the 90's when she worked with Harvey Weinstein on the Chicago film.
The actress was asked to star in the film, alongside none other than Madonna.
“Madonna and I were gonna do it and I was working with Harvey Weinstein on it because he was producing," she told Cohen.
Hawn recalls, "I thought that was great and then I got the script a while later and it was for a 23-year-old."
“So I called him and I said, ‘You know, I’m not 23, who’s writing my part for a 23-year-old?’ He said, ‘Well, actually, you can’t play 23.’ And I said to him, ‘Oh, yeah I can actually,” she said.
Hawn continued saying, "So how else are you gonna do it? Why don’t you just come out and say you want to do it with somebody else?"
“We had a pay-or-play, we got into it, I met with them, [but] the script was so bad I told them myself, as a producer not an actress, I wouldn’t touch this with a 10-foot pole," she says.
Eventually she loved the release of the Chicago film, and was glad that Weinstein took her advice to change the script.
