Women and Hollywood

Goldie Hawn to HBO

It looks like another leading lady of the screen is heading to the tube. Darren Star (Sex and the City) is adapting the book The Viagra Diaries by Barbara Rose Brooker as a starring vehicle for Goldie Hawn. Hawn hasn't been on the big screen in a decade and it's seriously about time that we get to see her again. She's too good and too funny to just disappear from our lives.
