Goldie Hawn

Goldie Hawn

Birth Name: Goldie Jeanne Hawn

Place of Birth: Washington, D.C., U.S.

Date of Birth: November 21, 1945

*English, German (father)
*Ashkenazi Jewish (mother)

Goldie Hawn is an American actress, director, singer, and producer. She won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Cactus Flower (1969).

Goldie is the daughter of Laura (Steinhoff) and Edward Rutledge Hawn. Goldie’s father was of one quarter German and approximately three quarters English/British Isles ancestry. Goldie’s mother was Jewish, the daughter of Hungarian Jews. Goldie was raised in her mother’s Jewish faith. She has practiced some aspects of Buddhism, though she has said: “I was born Jewish, and I consider that my religion.”

Goldie has three children, actor and professional hockey player Wyatt Russell, with her partner, actor Kurt Russell; and actors Oliver Hudson and Kate Hudson, with her former husband, musician and actor Bill Hudson.

Goldie is often reported to be a direct descendant of Edward Rutledge (1749-1800), a politician who was the youngest signer of the United States Declaration of Independence. This claim is not correct. Goldie’s “Rutledge” line leads back to a man named Joseph Rutledge (1744-1814), and Goldie is not a descendant of Edward Rutledge.

The Hawn surname traces back to Johannes Jacob Hahn, who was born, c. 1712, in Pfalz, Wurttemberg, Germany. Johannes and his wife, Agnes Langlin, moved to the U.S., where their son, Christian Hahn, was born, c. 1765, in North Carolina. Christian Hahn was Goldie Hawn’s great-great-great-great-grandfather.

Goldie’s paternal grandfather was Otto Delphia Hawn (the son of Aaron Madison Hawn and Nannie Ada Hevrin). Otto was born in Missouri. Aaron was of German descent, and was the son of Alfred Hawn and Elizabeth Caroline Whitener. Nannie was the daughter of George W. Hevrin and Elizabeth Ann Green.

Goldie’s paternal grandmother was Claire Estelle Johnson (the daughter of Henry Spencer Johnson and Mary Frances Hall). Claire was born in Arkansas. Henry was the son of Henry H. Johnson and Mary L. Rutledge. Goldie’s great-grandmother Mary Frances was the daughter of William Roland Hall and Catherine Cole.

Goldie’s maternal grandfather was named Michael/Max B. Steinhoff. Michael was a Hungarian Jew.

Goldie’s maternal grandmother was Frances “Fanny/Fannie” Weiss (the daughter of Menachem Mendel Weiss and Esther Schwartz). Frances was a Hungarian Jew. Menachem was the son of Eliezer Weiss and Eszter Klein. Goldie’s great-grandmother Esther Schwartz was the daughter of Ignatz Schwartz and Goldie.

Even though this site is very interesting, it is fertile grounds for racism. There are many, many racists here.

pookerella May 14, 2017 at 6:00 pm

And some really incredibly ignorant people. But all racists are. I like stupid better. Because there is no reason to be politically correct with a racist.

bearboy May 14, 2017 at 6:54 pm

Goldie Hawn is beautiful. I recently saw Overboard and I was thinking wow she looks flawless. Then I saw Snatched yesterday in the movie theaters and thought wow nothing has changed a bit.

follers May 15, 2017 at 5:39 pm

I think Overboard is Hawn’s funniest film.

Only Anglo Saxons are White? are you mentally retarded? the original inhabitants of Britain(where you get the Anglo part) came from Greenland(Eskimos) who went from Iceland to the British Isles from a now submerged archipelago between Greenland and Britain. The conquering Romans wrote that the inhabitants of Southern England look Iberian(Spanish/Portuguese) The Romans themselves were Italian and basically created the first British civilization creating London, Lancaster and a multitude of other cities in Britain up to southern Scotland. After the Romans pulled their troops out of England, the Anglo Saxons(who were persistently defeated by the indigenous Roman/Celt/Pict population) invaded but eventually the Normans (first generation French Scandinavians) nearly destroyed their civilization. The Normans detested the Anglo Saxons whose ancestry is a mix of Netherlands, German, Danish even Belgian. getting back to the initial argument, the Anglo Saxons whose ancestors came from Central Asia are admixture of Asians, Persian, Slavic, Northern Indian and a whole host of others, so no Anglo Saxon are not necessarily White.

Wow, this is one of the funniest and dumbest threads i´ve ever read ( and i have read a lot ) ! I don´t want to answer one of the racist posts ( that would be a little bit too far under my level ), but i would like to answer you, none: How old are you? Are you a reader of Murdoch´s “The Sun”? I really like your anti- racist attitude, but what you wrote about the origins of the angles and saxons and their time in britain is hilariously wrong! It seems to be an “The Sun” readíng celt- wannabe´s wet dream!!! LOL, and the romans, whose soldiers were more than only of italic/ italian origin, did NOT basically create the first civilisation on british ground! Never heard of Stonehenge?

Ahmed March 13, 2012 at 8:55 am

LOL this Anglo Saxon guy seems like a Joke, man even many English people have dark hair and eyes so I guess they aren’t white either?

Mr Mint March 7, 2012 at 8:49 am

Why whites in quotation marks?

Did you know how many Irish people are in Hollywood? Or are they not white either?

I love you, Roger Scientist March 7, 2012 at 10:50 am

I put it in quotation marks because they do not exist.

Mr Mint March 7, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Wait, are you saying Whites don’t exist because “white” is a social construct?

bumgum March 7, 2012 at 1:38 pm

He probably believes in big conspiracies too.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 12, 2012 at 12:42 pm
ONLY ANGLO-SAXONS ARE WHITE March 13, 2012 at 6:45 am

Only Anglo-Saxons are white, so if course Jews are not white.

pookerella May 14, 2017 at 5:56 pm

You, are an ass.

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 6:40 am

Anglo-Saxons are the only ‘real white people.’

Roger Is My Lover March 21, 2012 at 9:23 pm

This is true.

rickyflo April 20, 2013 at 11:14 am

No, this is not proven and theorized true. Anglo-Saxons are not the only whites because again, I2 genetics and genetic history of Europe. The Caucasian race was not actually clarified until genetic testing and Skull measurements. That is why some people are classified as Caucasian because they are. Also, I2 is more classified Caucasus/Caucasian regular, and this gene appears less in, oh, guess what, Anglo-Saxons, and a few other groups of upper European Region, but for the Caucasian race it is J2, R1B, I2, and a few minor genes from neolithic and Paleolithic. I hear this from time to time, but the theory proves beyond that belief. Even, Spaniards and Italians are supposedly not white, completely false because there are Neo-Nazis from those countries.

Mr Mint March 7, 2012 at 8:47 am

This page is full of stupid people.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 7, 2012 at 10:53 am

Gwenyth Paltrow is part Jewish. :D

Mr Mint March 7, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Yes, she is.

Ahmed March 13, 2012 at 8:56 am

I agree.

person March 13, 2012 at 12:05 pm

There’s a decent number of African Americans in Hollywood.

person March 13, 2012 at 12:10 pm

At the end of the day, all that matters is if you can act (and you aren’t an ugly bastard too helps lol)

nnnnn April 16, 2013 at 12:13 am

The comparison isn’t correct.

crunty April 11, 2016 at 1:20 pm

Amusing though.

every1 is jewish! even denzel washington… even jackie chan…

nnnnn August 29, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Bloom claims
his father isn’t his native father (greetings from
L.Trier), in ana case his mother Copeland looks like
typical Jewish.

nnnnn April 16, 2013 at 12:23 am

Moore is Kabbalah….

nnnnn April 16, 2013 at 12:28 am

“Oralndo Bloom” lol, lol, lol

He would be a non-jew, if he has a DNA-analyse.
Otherwise, his father is still Harry Bloom, a man from
his birth certificate.

nnnnn April 16, 2013 at 11:41 pm

Kaballaha followers (Moore, Kutcher etc).

nnnnn April 17, 2013 at 12:07 am

You didn’t understand my point.

nnnnn April 19, 2013 at 1:36 am

Do you prefer Tilda Swinton now? That ugly
COMMUNIST and grupensex fan? Typical example
for physical and moral degeneration.

nnnnn April 19, 2013 at 1:41 am

Follers: it’s very reasonable, that Jade and Jaden
with their 1/64 are not jewish to you. But they are –
for many visitors at that site

fuzzybear44 April 20, 2013 at 2:21 am


Although I do believe the original Hebrews were black,I have no confirmed proof,so I leave it alone.However what I’m curious about,is why you would dilute the Jamaicans Jews down to
(typically something like “1/64th Jewish”, if that.)?

Especially when you just admitted ,to not knowing what the average contribution is

fuzzybear44 April 20, 2013 at 6:43 am


You misunderstood,I was asking about jews in general,not Jada family .Also if you look black,you were called black on the census,no matter what you had in your ethnic background.Now there were many Jews by blood there,but slave weren’t allowed to practice their faith anymore.You practice what the slave master tells you.Now I said slave because jews went into West Africa.They mixed ,and were shipped out as slaves.

(Black Jamaicans did sometimes have a small amount of (White) Jewish ancestry. I suppose I could have said “1/16th” or “1/256th” instead of “1/64th”, what’s the difference?)

The difference is from what I see,your basing your assumption on the white jew contribution,that came later.Instead of the home grown blacks,who most likely predominantly mess with each other,like your group did.Therefore not diluting themselves as much as you may have thought.So the contributions to their bloodlines,could be higher.Yet this is me just being curious.


Don’t hate me,and stop rolling your eyes at the screen.HAHAHA

fuzzybear44 April 20, 2013 at 7:49 am


You seem to be sticking with jada.My comment was about Jam Jews % in general not her.You know more about jada right now,than I do.So it probably was a white jew,like you wrote.

nnnnn April 21, 2013 at 2:38 pm

Also, one-drop-rule is stupid.

nnnnn April 21, 2013 at 2:43 pm

bomgum: J.Chan is “partly jewish”? Some people
believe the whole nonsence, they read im Web.

nnnnn April 24, 2013 at 11:51 pm


nnnnn April 25, 2013 at 12:39 am

I see common people.

nnnnn April 25, 2013 at 12:57 am

It’s not the same,
as catholics marry with protestants

nnnnn April 27, 2013 at 12:41 am

You, narrow-minded persons.

nnnnn April 28, 2013 at 1:27 pm

F.e., Schwarzenegger is my
favourite actor.

nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 2:24 pm

Actually, Jon Voight is nice, opposite to his

Crazy Panda March 7, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Some more:

Gene Hackman, Tim Robbins, Clive Owen, Meryl Streep, Woody Harrelson, Jim Carey, Ryan Reynolds, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Heather Graham, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Swayze, Nick Nolte, Willem DaFoe, Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, Sigourmey Weaver, Billy Bob Thornton, Bill Paxton, Dennis Quaid, Julianne Moore, Tilda Swinton, Vera Farmiga, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, Naomi Watts, Diane Keaton, Judi Dench etc etc

dee = dumb March 12, 2012 at 10:20 am

I guess that invalidates his point.

Crazy Panda March 12, 2012 at 10:22 am

Guess I was wrong.

nnnnn April 24, 2013 at 11:53 pm

Crazy. Orlando Bloom is a “non-jew” and Jackie Chan
is a “jew” or “partly jew”? lol

nnnnn April 25, 2013 at 12:45 am

You can see, how simple is the thing. Smb start
a rumour, that Chan is partly jewish, and so,
all ignorant racists mean, it’s a “reason” why he’s
in Hollywood and don’t pay attention, that he’s
the best acrobat and Kung-fu fighter and talented
Of course, there are more “victims”
