Goldie Hawn cries 3 times a day over thought of 'abuse and anger' happening in lockdown

Goldie Hawn has shared that lockdown has left her having up three outbursts of emotion each day as she fears for those who are in confined and troubling situations.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain via video link on Thursday, the Hollywood star told the hosts how she was filled with "tremendous sadness" at the thought of the "abuse and anger" some may be experiencing behind closed doors.

Hawn noted she felt "lucky" to have a spacious home before adding: “The people that I’m worried and concerned about are the people who are incarcerated or feel that they are in their apartments – it’s not a house, there’s no garden they can go out to.

“I cry probably three times a day because it hurts me to think there is abuse going on and anger going on. And it all has to do with confinement, fear, uncertainty … it’s catastrophising.”

Hawn also reflected on what she believes to be the positive aspects of the pandemic, stating: “The positive effects of this pandemic are actually quite a few, because parents are at home with their children… the reality is that children will feel more secure and happier [being with their parents].

“It’s actually an extraordinary time that we will ever get again."

The 74-year-old has been with actor partner Kurt Russell since 1983 and shares 33-year-old son Wyatt with the star. Hawn is also mother to Oliver, 43, and Kate Hudson, 41, both of whom are also actors.

She remarked on the secret to her and Russell's long relationship in the interview, saying "forgiveness" was behind their successful partnership.

It comes as the Death Becomes Her star is asking people to film themselves or their families laughing and post it on social media to help deal with anxiety, highlighting that laughter is "fantastic for the brain".
