Hollywood icon Goldie Hawn has lately been a lady about town.
The actress recently met up with her pal Russell Simmons (who knew?) who tweeted a pic while they were hanging out yesterday. “Goldie Hawn is in my office on a mission ‘Mind up’ selling Neuro science of learning ‘mindful intelligence,’" the star shared.
What does that mean? It turns out MindUP is an educational program through the actress' Hawn Foundation.
The initiative incorporates positive psychology to “provide children with emotional and cognitive tools to help them manage emotions and behaviors, reduce stress, sharpen concentration, and increase empathy and optimism.” So now you know what Goldie Hawn and Russell Simmons discuss when they hang out.
Simmons, 53, and Hawn, 65, both participated in the Newark Peace Education Summit, a three-day event that took place in New Jersey this past May. His Holiness the Dalai Lama XIV also attended the summit, which highlights “peacemaking as a way for individuals, communities and nations to resolve conflicts and problems.”
Hawn seems to be making the rounds with hip-hop heavyweights - she lunched with 50 Cent just last week. Fiddy tweeted their encounter: “I had lunch with Goldie Hawn she is complete sweetheart.”
"Goldie was having lunch with a friend who asked him to join them," Hawn's rep, Brad Cafarelli, told E! News. "They talked about philanthropy in education and how to give back to help kids in schools succeed and she thought he was a wonderful person."
"Lunch was especially sweet today cause I met @50cent," Hawn tweeted. "His smile lit up the room."
Looks like the actress is seriously spreading the word about her education foundation.
