Goldie Hawn says she regrets not being at the 1970 Oscars when she won her best supporting actress award.
Hawn, who was shooting in London at the time, won for her role in the 1969 film "Cactus Flower."
Hawn only recently watched the moment she won the award after being asked about it by Jimmy Kimmel.
In a Variety interview published Wednesday, 77-year-old Hawn recalled finding out that she won the award. She was 25 years old at the time.
"I forgot it was on television that night," she told Variety's Tatiana Siegel. "Then I woke up to a phone call at like 4 in the morning. And it was a man's voice and he said, 'Hey, congratulations, you got it.' 'I got what?' 'You got the Academy Award for best supporting actress.'"
At the time, she was in London filming "There's a Girl in my Soup" with actor Peter Sellers.
"I regret it. It's something that I look back on now and think, 'It would have been so great to be able to have done that,'" Hawn said of missing the moment.
In 1969's "Cactus Flower," Hawn starred opposite fellow Oscar winners Walter Matthau and Ingrid Bergman.
In the film, Hawn plays Toni Williams, a 21-year-old who attempts suicide after being broken up with by her lover, a dentist named Julian Winston (Matthau). He then proposes to Toni, but must cover up the fact he lied about having a wife and children.
Hawn admitted that she hadn't watched the moment her name was called until recently. She was prompted to watch when Jimmy Kimmel asked her about it on the way to a party they were both attending.
"He said, 'Did you ever see the part where you're being announced by Fred Astaire?' And I said, 'Fred Astaire?!' He's my idol. And I didn't know he was the one that announced my name. I got emotional when I finally saw it," Hawn told "Variety."
Raquel Welch, who died in February, accepted the award on Hawn's behalf.
Hawn was nominated for an Oscar once more for her role in the 1980 film "Private Benjamin." This time as a best actress nominee.
As for where she keeps her golden statue, Hawn opts for a lowkey spot in her bedroom closet.
"I don't brag much," Hawn said. "So those things, I keep kind of quiet."
The Oscars, hosted by Kimmel, will air March 12 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
