Goldie Hawn - Hawn: 'I Needed Therapy To Cope With Hollywood Success'

Hollywood success sent GOLDIE HAWN into therapy for nine years - because she felt like a prisoner of Tinseltown.
The actress had no plans to become a film star when she first came to Los Angeles to work as a dancer - but movie executives liked her look and her spirit and she was on the fast-track to superstardom before she had the chance to catch her breath.
And, in a revealing TV chat with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday (26Jan11), Hawn opened up about her miserable start in Hollywood, explaining, "My whole life was turned upside down... I didn't wanna be a star... I wanted to dance and have fun and travel and go home and open a dancing school. I had my life planned.
"When that (movie success) happened, something happened to my brain; I lost my smile, I became really depressed, I had anxiety attacks, I had panic attacks... I would go into a place and I had to leave because I'd get dizzy and feel like I wanted to throw up."
So the actress turned to therapy to help her cope with overnight fame: "I had to find my smile again... It was probably the hardest time I ever had because it wasn't me and it wasn't what I wanted to be."
