Goldie Hawn: aliens touched my face when I was 20

I’ve made it no secret that I’m fascinated by the paranormal, like ghosts, psychic abilities, dreams, and anything that falls into that broad “Universe-y” category. Well, now we get to talk about another subject that I find fascinating: aliens!

On a recent episode of Apple Fitness+’s Time to Walk podcast, Goldie Hawn shared that not only does she believe in aliens, she once had an encounter with grey-like beings. Goldie’s contactee experience happened in the mid-1960s, which was a decade full of reports of the UFO phenomena. The Hills were (allegedly) infamously abducted in 1961 and among the first to share their story publicly, which led to tons of reports of UFO and alien activity. According to Goldie, she was asleep in a friend’s car when she was awoken by aliens. During this encounter, they pointed at her and touched her face.

While sleeping in a friend’s car in the California desert after a night of dancing, Hawn, who was then 20, said she was greeted by a “high-pitched sound.” At the time, Hawn recalled there were “a lot” of UFO sightings and stories.

“I looked out the window, and I saw these two or three triangular-shaped heads,” shared Hawn, who described the creatures as being “silver in color” and having a “slash for a mouth” as well as small noses and no ears.

“They were pointing at me, pointing at me in the car as if they were discussing me like I was a subject. And they were droning,” Hawn elaborated, noting that she “could not move. I was paralyzed … I didn’t know if it was real or not real.”

Unable to determine if the experience was real, Hawn soon broke from her trance.

“I burst out of it. It was like bursting out of a forcefield. And of course, I go back to all the kids and stuff, and I went, ‘Oh, my God. I think I made contact with outer space.'”

Years later, she recounted her experience to an astrophysicist at the University of Champaign, Ill., sharing that it unlocked her memories of how “they touched my face. They touched my face, and it felt like the finger of God. It was the most benevolent, loving feeling. This was powerful. It was filled with light.”

Hawn isn’t the only person in her household who claims to have an alien connection. Her longtime partner, Kurt Russell, revealed in 2017 to the BBC that he was the pilot who called in a mysterious mass sighting of UFOs over Phoenix back in 1997. The incident came to be known as the Phoenix Lights UFO sighting.

I was a huge fan of The X-Files when I was growing up, so I’m always interested in hearing or watching stories about UFOs (or UAPs as they’re now referred to) and aliens. I think the universe is too infinite and mysterious for human beings to truly be the only life form that exists anywhere. I don’t know if I believe all of the stories and theories out there, but I have always been particularly fascinated by the whole “ancient aliens” concept. CB watched the documentary Encounters, and it’s shot up to the top of my list, now.

I think Goldie’s story is interesting but also kinda scary! I also had no idea that Kurt Russell claims to be the pilot in the Phoenix Lights incident! It’s interesting that both he and Goldie – like many others who share their stories – didn’t remember their full experiences until something triggered the memory later on. I don’t know if I necessarily believe that those beings come here benevolently, so I wonder if Goldie was given that feeling in order to make her more cooperative or spread some kind of good alien PR. I also wonder if somewhere out there, there’s an extraterrestrial being whose claim to fame on their home planet is that they once touched Goldie Hawn’s forehead.

    I think it’s spelled LSD, not UFO.

    • bergamot says:

      Lol, I was about to write the same thing.

    • AB says:

      Right? 😂

    • Giddy says:

      Thank you! 👽

    • Gabby says:

      Yep. Or should I say “wow, man”.

    • AnneL says:

      LOL I was thinking the same thing. A “night of dancing” in the California desert in I assume the late 60s or early 70s? I doubt dancing was the only thing happening.

      Not that I don’t believe these stories can be true. But in this case, I’m not sure I would trust her memory.

    • Sandr says:

      lol..yes! it was the 60’s after all! (who didn’t wake up in a friends car in the middle of the desert! lol) I loved Goldie back then, (yes, I’m THAT old) but I do think she’s a bit whacked…
      I don’t know what Russel’s problem is.

      Anything that is touching you is a bad spirit, probably demonic, and not an alien, whether you are in your house or out in a field. The scariest thing to do around Halloween is hear exorcists’ accounts. Demon spirits can take any form, or apparition, appear as a ghost, or affect any form of light, the plumbing, and even the weather to a certain extent, or knocking sounds, voices, or a breeze inside your house when the doors and windows are shut. I do wonder where our interest in aliens, spirits, and ghosts comes from and if this is just a lack of awareness of being lured in over time instead of evolving away from our fear-driven animal minds. I definitely believe alcohol, drugs, abuse, fear, or any repeated loss of control opens a portal and allows demonic spirits to move in like vultures on an injured animal and attempt to dominate a human or a specific place.

        Someone on one of the threads a while ago recommended the Otherworld podcast and I love it! It’s so creepy (in fairness, I scare quite easily). But as I’ve been listening, there definitely seems to be a pattern with abuse/intoxicating substances/fear/untreated mental illness/anger opening up portals for entities to take over. It’s terrifying!

    I’m convinced that the aliens are studying/observing us. If they have light speed travel then they’re clearly operating at a much higher level than we are.

  3. Bumblebee says:

    On the probability scale of big foot vs alien, I’d go with Nessie. Hehehe

  4. Libra says:

    Not a believer in her story. My drug of choice, Ibuprofen,obviously does not have the same effect.

    I believe her and I believe Kurt Russell. I enjoy a fascinating show on the travel channel called Paranormal Caught on Camera. There’s six seasons of 15 episodes each of doorbell camera videos, security camera videos, cell phone videos and every kind of recording you can imagine of anything paranormal: there’s a direwolf episode, pale walker videos, a real looking up close English fairy video, tons of ufo videos, flying humanoid videos, even a few flying witch on a broom videos, which I speculate are aliens living on earth just flying under the radar so to speak. My husband and several friends, a mix of male and female were on Carmel Beach 20 years ago, having a couple brews and watching the sunset. They all saw a UFO come out of the water, triangulate around over the ocean, then zip up, disappearing into upper atmosphere. They all saw it. Carmel is on the edge of the largest and deepest underwater canyon in the world, so deep we can’t even explore it. It’s the grand canyon of the ocean. You tell me.

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      The Monterey Canyon is the deepest trench off Pacific North America. The world’s deepest is the Mariana, east of The Philippines.

    • nicole says:

      The scariest paranormal show was Paranormal Emergency in 2019, with police officers describing authentic events previously witnessed while on duty, you could see in their faces they were telling the truth. Must say being a science person this was hard for me to watch.

  6. NotSoSocialB says:

    Sounds like a partial awakening to me. Your dream state gets blended into waking, and it’s as if you are living your dream in your actual physical environment. When I worked nights, I went to bed one morning and woke a few hours later in daylight sure I was seeing a huge huge spider descending directly above my head- I shouted, ” spider, spider!” as I pushed my spouse out of bed trying to clamor away. It seemed so real. Anyhoo, anyone can read about that particular type of sleep disturbance/parasomnia. Super weird stuff.

  7. J.Ferber says:

    She’s still kooky as ever!

    It sounds similar The Old Hag type of night paralysis.
