The actress was pictured wearing her jeans a little too low down as she flew out of Los Angeles airport yesterday, displaying her white lacy thong that was clearly visible above her bottoms. The blonde - who turns 70 on November 21 - didn't seem bothered by her slight wardrobe malfunction at all though, as she continued to concentrate solely on her phone call. Goldie teamed her lacy underwear with a pair of casual jeans and a black vest top, that showed off her slim physique.

On both occasions - during her holiday and yesterday - Goldie was seen without her longtime beau, year-old Kurt Russell. However, the pair were pictured looking loved-up as ever as they posed for photographers while heading out in Los Angeles, earlier this month. The star previously gave Twitter followers an insight into her life with her famous man, and how they spent their time off together. Now that's romance," she added.

It has been 30 years since Overboard , the unashamedly and quintessentially 80s romantic comedy, first hit the cinemas screens. Directed by Garry Marshall and loosely based on the Italian film Swept Away , the farfetched feel-good classic is the last of the three films in which real-life couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell starred side by side. With dashings of slapstick humour, Hawn plays the insufferably rich and rude haughty heiress Joanna Stayton, who one night falls overboard from her yacht whilst scrambling to find her wedding ring. When discovered the next morning by a garbage scow she is suffering from amnesia; unable to remember her name or indeed anything about her life, her equally unbearable husband opportunistically chooses not to identify her and spends the following weeks partying aboard the yacht.
