Looking for the lowdown on lover Kurt Russell? Hot for Hollywood dish? Forget about it. Hawn, the goofy blonde of TV's Laugh-In and the star of Cactus Flower, Private Benjamin and other films, isn't too interested in discussing her career or her love life, although she does chat about her girlhood years. She was slow in school, but her loving parents nurtured her other talents, especially her dancing. Breaking into show business in the 1960s, when women still had to deal with the casting couch, was tough-Hawn gives graphic detail on cartoonist Al Capp's lechery. But she loves men anyway, feeling sorry that they have all those "hormones raging through their blood like a drug." What she really wants to share with readers is her attitude toward life, which boils down to flower power minus the drugs. A spiritual traveler (tourist, some would say), Hawn embraces all people of faith and makes a point of finding a "spiritual teacher" whenever she visits a "holy city." India is a special love: "People live their lives on the street.... Everybody shares." Hawn's a big supporter of Operation Smile, which offers reconstructive surgery to youngsters in less-developed counties. Indeed, readers learn more about the various orphan boys (Hopi, Asian, Peruvian) Hawn has looked after than about her own children. Her handsomely produced volume, including two photo inserts, positively overflows with spiritual enlightenment.
