Goldie Hawn and her indescribable role as "Gogo"

09/23/2007 at 08:16 PM ET

Actress Goldie Hawn, 61, has graced our screens for over 40 years. With her girl-next-door charm, she is warm and loving. Goldie spoke to Woman’s Day about love, life and most importantly, being a grandmother.

Goldie, who is grandmother to Ryder Russell, 3 1/2, from daughter Kate Hudson’s marriage to Chris Robinson, and Wilder Brooks, 4 weeks, from son Oliver Hudson’s marriage to Erinn Bartlett, says that it is the most wonderful role she has ever played.

How can you explain love? Being a grandmother is a feeling that you cannot describe. It is such an excitement to see another offspring. And also, it’s great to watch the beautiful relationship of your own children with their own children. And of course, it’s always nice to hear my nickname, "Gogo". Ryder is calling me that all the time. He is so wonderful and funny. He has got a lot of the dramatic in him.

Isn’t the women that is walking with Goldie her daugher Kate? If so she looks to be sporting a baby bump. Hmmmm could it be??

Shannon’s note: It’s actually in old picture. Sorry. It was the only one we had on the site featuring Goldie and Ryder. The woman is Erinn Bartlett – Oliver’s wife – she was pregnant with Wilder when the picture was taken. Here is the original post:

I wish I had a grandmother. At least I have a fantastic mother who’ll be a fantastic grandmother when/if I’ll have kids.

Kate, cut your son’s hair!

Why is it the new trend in Hollywood to grow your son’s hair out?
