Actress Goldie Hawn weighed in on the pervasiveness of crime in Los Angeles, revealing that her own home has been burglarized twice in four months.

The 78-year-old made the comments during an appearance on the SiriusXM podcast “Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.”

“What if we couldn’t live in L.A, where would we live? We both decided, I think it’s Palm Desert (California). … It’s so safe,” Hawn told Ripa of herself and Kurt Russell, her longtime boyfriend of four decades.

“It’s just because L.A. is terrible. I mean, we were robbed once,” she added. 

Hawn went on to describe what happened the first time her home was burglarized. She said she and Russell were out of the house for just two hours before coming back home to discover what happened.

“We came back and went in the house. I went up to the stairs and I walked into my closet. I just lost it,” Hawn said. “They had broken in from the balcony to our bedroom, our closets.”

She continued, “And they completely knocked down my door, which is a safe door, so they’re very, very sophisticated, and they got a lot of my goodies, if you know what I mean.”

The Academy Award-winning actress said she assumed it was something she would only experience once, but that wasn’t the case. “So, I’m thinking, ‘Oh, my God, so the chances are, I guess that’s it,'” Hawn told Ripa. “It’s gotta be. The odds are that’s not gonna happen again.”

But then, four months later, that’s exactly what happened. The actress said she was home alone with her dog when she heard a noise.

“I hear this big thump upstairs — and I was alone; Kurt wasn’t there — and I went, ‘What the hell was that?'” she explained.


“It was just like, was that a sonic boom? Did somebody jump somewhere? And as it turned out, the next day, we discovered that they were trying to get in my bedroom while I was in the house.”

“That’s terrifying,” Ripa replied. 

“I couldn’t believe it. What is happening here?” Hawn said, adding that she has had additional protection since the incidents. “I’ve had a guard, especially when I’m alone now,” Hawn said. “I’m never without a guard. We have a nice relationship with our guard.”
