Hawn began her acting career as a cast member of the short-lived situation comedy Good Morning, World during the 1967-1968 television season, her role being that of the girlfriend of a radio disc jockey, with a stereotypical "dumb blonde" personality. Her next role, which brought her to international attention, was as one of the regular cast members on the 1960s sketch comedy show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. On the show, she would often break out into high-pitched giggles in the middle of a joke, and deliver a polished performance a moment after. Noted equally for her chipper attitude as for her bikini and painted body, Hawn personified something of a 1960s "It" girl. This persona was parlayed into three popular film appearances in the late 1960s and early 1970s: Cactus Flower, There's a Girl in My Soup and Butterflies Are Free. She made her feature film debut in the 1968 The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band (she was billed as Goldie Jeanne) in a bit role as a giggling dancer. Hawn won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Cactus Flower (1969), which was her first supporting role and which co-starred Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman.

After Hawn's Academy Award win in April 1970 for Cactus Flower her film career took off. She starred in a string of above average and very successful comedies starting with There's a Girl in My Soup (1970), $ (1971), Butterflies Are Free (1972) and Shampoo (1975) as well as proving herself in the dramatic league with the satirical dramas The Girl from Petrovka and The Sugarland Express both in 1974. She also hosted two television specials: Pure Goldie in 1971 and The Goldie Hawn Special in 1978. The latter was a sort of comeback for Goldie who had been out of the spotlight for two years since the 1976 release of The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox, while she was focusing on her marriage and the birth of her son. On the special she performed show tunes and comedy bits alongside comic legend George Burns, teen matinee idol Shaun Cassidy, popular television star John Ritter (during his days on Three's Company) and even the Harlem Globetrotters joined her for a montage. The special later went on to be nominated for a prime-time Emmy. This came four months before the feature film release of Foul Play which became a box office smash and revived Hawn's career in the film industry. The plot centred around an innocent woman in San Francisco who became mixed up in a murder plot. The film was noted for its use of "Hitchcock plagiarism" in that the plot was very similar to some of the late directors murder classics. Nevertheless, Hawn's next film, Mario Monicelli's Lovers and Liars (1979), was a box office bomb.

Hawn's popularity continued into the 1980's starting with Private Benjamin (1980) a comedy which not only starred Hawn but was also her foray into producing. Private Benjamin, which also starred Eileen Brennan and Armand Assante, garnered Hawn her second Academy Award nomination, this time for Best Actress. Hawn's box office success continued with an assortment of pictures, including comedies like Seems Like Old Times (1980), Protocol (1984) and Wildcats (1986) (Hawn also served as executive producer on the latter two) and dramas like Best Friends (1982) and Swing Shift (1984). Hawn posed on the cover of Playboy in January, 1985 at the age of thirty-nine. The pictorial which went on to be one of Playboy's highest selling issues, featured Hawn on the cover, sitting in a martini glass, with her legs in the air, and wearing nothing but a white collar shirt, a loosened black tie and a pair of red stilettos. The headline read: "A SPARKLING PLAYBOY INTERVIEW WITH GOLDIE HAWN". The issue sparked controversy in that a woman going on forty could be a sex symbol and iconic enough to appear in the famed men's magazine - something that English beauty Joan Collins had pushed the envelope for when she appeared on the cover in December 1983 at the age of fifty. Hawn's last picture of the 1980's was opposite partner Kurt Russell (for the third time) in the 1987 comedy Overboard, a critical and box office disappointment which questioned the likability and bankability of the two paired together onscreen.

Her career slowed down after 1987, but was revived somewhat in 1990 with the action comedy Bird on a Wire, a critically panned but commercially successful picture that paired Hawn with action favorite Mel Gibson. The early 90's weren't particularly good to Hawn, with little success associated with the thriller Deceived (1991) or the drama CrissCross (1992). But her success in 1992 when she appeared opposite Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep in the film Death Becomes Her garnered her much attention. Following up that was HouseSitter (1992), a screwball comedy with Steve Martin - which again ventured into commercial and critical success. She was absent from the screen again for four years, while caring for her mother who died of cancer in 1994. She made her entry back into the film business with producing the satirical comedy Something to Talk About starring Julia Roberts and Dennis Quaid, as well as making her foray into directing with the television film Hope (1997) starring Christine Lahti and Jena Malone.

She returned to the screen again in 1996 as the ageing, alcoholic actress Elise Elliot in the financially and critically successful The First Wives Club, opposite Bette Midler and Diane Keaton, with whom she covered the Lesley Gore hit "You Don't Own Me" for the film's soundtrack. Hawn also performed a cover version of the Beatles' song, "A Hard Day's Night", on George Martin's 1998 album, In My Life. She continued her tenure in the 90's with Woody Allen's musical Everyone Says I Love You (1996) and reuniting with Steve Martin for the comedy The Out-of-Towners (1999), a remake of the 1970 Neil Simon hit. The film was critically panned and bombed at the box office.

In 2001 Hawn was reunited with former co-stars Warren Beatty (her co-star in $ and Shampoo) and Diane Keaton for the comedy Town & Country, a critical and financial fiasco. Budgeted at an estimated US$90 million, the film opened to little notice and grossed only $7 million in its North American theatrical run. As of 2008, her last film appearance was in the 2002 runaway hit The Banger Sisters, opposite Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush.

In 2005, Hawn's autobiography, A Lotus Grows in the Mud, was published. Hawn claims that the book is not a Hollywood tell-all, but rather a memoir and record of what she has learned in her life so far. Hawn announced in an interview with AARP's magazine that her next film project would be called Ashes to Ashes and co-star her partner Kurt Russell. The film is about a New York widow who loses her late husband's ashes in India.
