Goldie Hawn says ageism in Hollywood doesn't make her angry

There are a lot of amusing, even laugh-out-loud moments in Snatched, the new mother-daughter comedy starring Goldie Hawn, in her first film role in 15 years, and Amy Schumer.

During her appearance on ITV's Loose Women in London this week, the comedienne revealed exactly what she's looking for in her next beau after she and Snatched costar Goldie Hawn were asked if they likes a good or bad guy during a game of What You Prefer.

"I used my words", she said.

Hawn, 71, began her career in the late '60s with Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and went on to star in classic comedies such as Foul Play (1978), Private Benjamin (1980) and The First Wives Club (1996).

On ageism in show business: "You think you're going to fight the system?" You think you're going to prove to Hollywood when you hit 45 that you're still a sexy, viable object? No.

"But then we officially met in London at this awards show and I properly introduced myself and we talked about the movie and we both decided, let's do everything in our power to make this movie together". No. Im not an angry person.

"I like a bad guy, I have to say". Anger doesn't get you anywhere.

It also warned Barkati that "appropriate action" would be taken if he chose to "violate any terms of the letter of termination". However, the controversial cleric refused to acknowledge trustee board's order and declines to step down from the post.

Schumer plays self-obsessed sales assistant Emily Middleton, who's left in the lurch when her soon-to-be-rock-star boyfriend (Randall Park) dumps her, leaving her with two non-refundable tickets to a five-star resort in Ecuador.

She said: 'He's very protective of me.

Hawn isn't gifted a single amusing line during 90 deflating minutes while Schumer continues to mine half-hearted laughs from her role as the childlike clown. Though nothing came from that encounter, when they met again months later at an event in London, Hawn agreed to read the script for Snatched, a new Jonathan Levine-directed action comedy about a mother-daughter trip that goes awry. Schumer's intensity is insane (watch Emily as she's told her face is too "puffy" to attract sex traffickers) and Hawn (who hasn't appeared in a movie for 15 years) makes for an above-average foil. However, by the time Schumer flashes one of her breasts for a cheap laugh, we know the film-makers are up the Amazon without a paddle.

Things worked out for the best, didn't they?

"There's so much to say about the decades I've lived through", she explains. If you've never seen her before, your heart's about to be snatched.

"He's a great guy", Hawn said of Hudson's new beau.
