The good old-fashioned Ouija board has experienced a revival lately thanks to a series of low-budget horror films about the supernatural tool. And one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses has attested to its power, too. Here’s how an impromptu Ouija session back in the 1980s spooked Goldie Hawn for life.
Born in Washington, D.C.. in 1945, Goldie Hawn initially pursued a career as a professional dancer before switching to acting in the late 1960s. She achieved her breakthrough as a regular on sketch show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. And with her vivacious personality and beauty, she also became one of the decade’s ultimate It girls.
But Hawn proved there was much more to her talents with an Oscar-winning performance in her first major film role. The star picked up Best Supporting Actress for her turn in 1969’s Cactus Flower. She also impressed in the likes of The Girl from Petrovka, The Sugarland Express and Shampoo.
