Star actress Goldie Hawn had a refreshing take on the role Hollywood should take in politics stating that her preference is to serve her audience and “stay in her lane.”

The Oscar-winning actress also told SiriusXM host Megyn Kelly on Friday that their job is to entertain “for all people.”

“I think it’s why it drives people crazy when Hollywood tries to act holier than thou and starts lecturing middle America about morality and so on,” Kelly said to start the conversation. “And you know, these people sitting in Iowa who have never done any, they’ve never tried to put someone on a casting couch … They’re like, you could save your lectures for somebody else.”

That’s right, exactly,” Hawn concurred. “And the idea that … I do have a feeling about keeping — Okay, how do I say this?”

“A lot of Hollywood has a lot of missions, right?” the 76-year-old actress said. “And you know, you want to put your name onto something that you believe in, but it doesn’t make a difference. And that’s the reality.”

“I stay in my lane,” Hawn explained. “The reality is, is that if we want to do anything, we want to do it for all people, not just for a group or whatever.”

“What makes polarity even more is creating teams on either side of the aisle,” she added. “And I don’t think that’s what we do. I think we entertain. I think we bring awareness to people, just of their ability to laugh, to have joy, to experience it, to cry. We are emotional beings and create emotion in others. And it’s in this case, I think we’re in service.”

There were many people that were happy to see Hawn’s simple approach to keeping politics out of entertainment and applauded her speaking out albeit about not speaking out.

But it seems that no words spoke volumes to other people on social media, indicating that her silence could only mean one thing: she’s conservative.

Others cast the “Overboard” actress out for not taking a firm political stance.

Comedian Ricky Gervais spoke out earlier this month about Hollywood’s political “lecturing” and “virtue signaling” in an interview about the Golden Globes.

“I know what it is. With all of the austerity and people struggling, they think, ‘Why are these people lecturing me? They’re going   to an awards ceremony in a limo and are telling me to recycle?’” he explained. “People just got sick of it, just got sick of virtue signaling. And they were like a beacon to aim their wrath at.”

“The people with nothing became tired of being lectured by people who had everything,” he added.

Gervais doesn’t regret anything about the time he spent hosting the Golden Globes either.

“You have to make a decision as a comedian,” he said. “Do you pander to the 200 most privileged people in the world in the room or the 200 million watching at home?”
