In an interview to CNBC, Hawn, 72, said that sexual harassment has "been there forever", reports telegraph.co.uk.
"The First Wives Club" star said that she was lucky that her circumstances were tempered by her upbringing.
"I had a very strong mom, a very strong dad and I had a lot of resilience and I really knew who I was, and you know the answer was always no I'll never get a job like that.
A lot of girls don't," she said.
Hawn said that one of the "attacks" took place in "a dark room" and she had "to wiggle get your way out of it".
