Into the 1970s and 1980s Hawn remained a popular figure in entertainment, appearing in various films (generally comedies.) She gathered great respect as a comedic actress, outspoken on her liberal political views. Her career died down a bit until 1992 when she revitalized it opposite Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep in the film Death Becomes Her. She eventually came full circle playing an aging actress in the late 90s film The First Wives Club opposite Bette Midler and Diane Keaton. Through the late 90s into the year 2002 she has remained popular (in partial thanks to the success of her now adult actress daughter, Kate Hudson.) She appeared in The Banger Sisters opposite Susan Sarandon in 2002.
