When she graduated from high school she enrolled at American University where she was majoring in drama, but soon decided to drop out, dance professionally and worked part time as a dance instructor.
In 1964, Hawn relocated to New York City and found work as a go-go dancer which helped land her a spot on the comedy hit show Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" (1968-1970). Soon she was getting cast in the film and television industry. Her first role was on a comedy called, "Good Morning World" (1967-1968) followed by a role that got her a decent amount of media attention in, "Sketch Comedy" (1968-1973).
Her film debut followed shortly in, "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band" (1968) followed by three more film roles, "There's a Girl in My Soup" (1970), "Butterflies Are Free" (1972) and "Cactus Flower" (1969), for which she received her first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
During the mid 70's and into the 80's, roles kept coming to Hawn working on such feature films as, "The Sugarland Express" (1974), "Shampoo" (1975), "The Girl from Petrovka" (1974), "Foul Play" (1978), "Private Benjamin" (1980), "Protocol" (1984), "Wildcats" (1986), "Swingshift" (1984) and "Overboard" (1987).
