Before Goldie Hawn broke out in Hollywood, a sexual predator tried to break her spirit when she refused to fall victim to his advances in a "casting couch" moment.
"I was 19. I went up for the 'meet,' and it was so scary," Hawn said. "He took off his business clothes and came in in, like, a dressing gown. I got the picture, and I thought, 'I'm in trouble. Where’s the door?'"
Hawn said at first, she and Capp discussed her acting skills. He offered up suggestions that she thought were coming from a credible source, but as the meeting went on, things took a creepy turn.
"I went, 'Wait a minute. He knows what he’s talking about,'" she said. "I said, 'Okay, so I’ll do it, like, more quiet, more real.' Then he wanted me to show my legs, and I said, 'You know, Mr. Capp, I don’t know. I don’t think so,' and then I sat down and he wanted me to give him a kiss, and I went, 'I don’t do this. I’m sorry.'"
Of course, Capp was not happy with her reaction. Hawn recalled him telling her to go home and marry a dentist, and saying she was "never going to make anything in your life."
"I was crying and I didn’t have any money to go back to the World’s Fair, where I was dancing, and so he threw me $20 for a taxicab," she added. "It wasn’t a good day."
Hawn returns to the big screen for the first time in over a decade when "Snatched," co-starring Amy Schumer, hits theaters Friday.
