Acclaimed Actress Goldie Hawn was so smitten by her former co-star Warren Beatty that she could not deny her feelings for him. The veteran star couldn't even hide the fact that they had a full-blown affair.

Goldie Hawn revealed she had more than a moment with her "Dollars" co-star during a 2017 appearance on "Watch What Happens Live!" 

The Academy Award winner admitted she was besotted by the now-84-year-old actor while filming the 1971 caper movie in Germany.

THE NITTY-GRITTY

A caller on the Bravo TV show asked Hawn who had been her most intimidating co-star throughout her Hollywood career. She revealed:

"Most nervous to work with maybe, in the beginning, was Warren Beatty. He didn't intimidate me."

Talk Show Host Andy Cohen asked her whether it was his good looks that made her nervous. Hawn shared: "He was so handsome that I didn't know if my eyes would burn inside my head if I looked up at him."

Hawn admitted she did sort of fall under his spell, enticing Cohen to chime in and question whether she ever had a moment with him. The star replied:

“I had more than a moment.”

Although Hawn said she could not go into specifics about their interaction, she mentioned that she met both his parents. She also emphasized that meeting her co-star's parents was a moment in itself. 

In the "Dollars" movie, Hawn co-starred as Beatty's fellow bank robber in a heist. The pair later starred alongside each other in the 1975 comedy film "Shampoo."

CHEATING CLAIMS

Notably, Hawn's former husband, Bill Hudson, claimed in his memoir titled "Two Versions: The Other Side Of Fame And Family" that she admitted to cheating on him.

Both Hawn and Beatty's former co-star Lee Grant also confirmed that the former lovers were indeed having an affair in her memoir "I Said Yes to Everything." 

She noted Beatty even boasted about their infidelity to another co-star, his longtime girlfriend, Julie Christie. More so, Bill claimed Hawn had several affairs while married to him.

The former musician also claimed the star owned up to another affair with French actor Yves Renier. He also revealed that Hawn begged him to have an open relationship which he refused.

He recalled a conversation they once had regarding her other lovers. He claimed Hawn told him she was seeing a Swedish man called Bruno and had arranged for him to visit her while she was shooting a movie.

Bill explained that Hawn told him Bruno would be at their home for a few weeks before she departed to shoot the film in Denver.

He said he was appalled by Hawn's statement and was left baffled. Bill then revealed he asked Hawn whether she had told Bruno about them being a couple while adding:

“She glared at me but didn’t say a word. That was all the answer I needed. ‘When you are finished with Bruno, you can call me. You have my number.’ And I left.”

SHOWING REMORSE

Following her brief fling with Bruno, Bill claimed Hawn came back begging for forgiveness. He added she sobbed and proclaimed her love for him, noting she knew he was her soulmate but had always believed in an open marriage.

The former couple was married from 1976 to 1982. They welcomed two kids within their union, Actors Kate and Oliver Hudson.

Bill divorced Hawn when Kate and Oliver were young children and has not been in contact with them for years. He was a member of the 1970s' band called The Hudson Brothers when he met Hawn.

POTENTIAL DAD

Meanwhile, his son Oliver, 45, once perpetuated that Beatty is possibly his birth father. He made the eyebrow-raising statement in an Instagram post celebrating Father's Day this June. 

Oliver referred to Bill in the post, saying that the older he gets, the more similar he realizes they are. He followed with a message stating there is a high possibility that Beatty may be his biological father.

In conclusion, Oliver shared it does not matter which one of the three men is his birth father. Instead, he noted that his Pa (Russell) stepped up when he was six years old and made him the man he is today.

The lovebirds met for lunch in preparation for the movie, and that was when Beatty knew that his life would change. He promised Bening that he would not pursue her while making the film but had a change of heart toward the end of the shooting.

The screenwriter eventually asked the actress out to dinner. Even though she hesitated at first, they went out to eat and have been together since.
