Ten years ago right about now Reese & Joaquin took the stage in movie theaters with a full sung duet as June and Johnny Cash. Both were Oscar-nominated for their ringed fire as tempestuous country superstar marrieds with Reese going on to win in a strangely non competitive Best Actress year.

Goldie Hawn hasn't acted in 13 years—not because there aren't roles worthy of her talent, but because she has chosen to focus on her family and her MindUP program. But there was, in fact, a time when Hawn was essentially blacklisted in Hollywood, a time when she was laying the groundwork for future actresses-turned-producers like Drew Barrymore, Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon.
