Goldie Hawn and her longtime partner Kurt Russell have swapped the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles for the serenity of the California desert. The reason? A pair of frightening home invasions that left the couple shaken and eager for a change of scenery.

In a candid chat with Kelly Ripa on the June 11 episode of the Let's Talk Off Camera podcast, Hawn didn't mince words about her feelings toward L.A. “L.A. is terrible,” she confessed. “I mean, we were robbed once.”

Recalling the chilling incidents, Hawn revealed that the first break-in occurred while they were out for dinner. “We were gone maybe two hours and 20 minutes or something. We came back, and I went up the stairs and walked into my closet and I just lost it,” she shared.

The Death Becomes Her star described the scene of the crime. “They had broken in from the balcony to our bedroom, our closets,” Hawn recounted. “They completely knocked down my door, which is a safe door, so they are very, very sophisticated. They got a lot of my goodies, if you know what I mean.”

Just as Hawn thought her ordeal was over, it happened again—only four months later, this time while she was home alone. “I'm in the house by myself with the dog, and I hear this big thump upstairs,” she said. “I was alone. Kurt wasn't there. And I went, ‘What the hell was that? Was that a sonic boom? Did somebody jump somewhere?'”

The next day, Hawn discovered that the intruders had attempted to break into her bedroom while she was there. The terrifying encounters have drastically changed how she feels about being home alone. Hawn now ensures she is “never without a guard,” especially when she's by herself.
