Actress Goldie Hawn says she can't go into Aspen from her nearby ranch anymore because of aggressive paparazzi who pursue her car and stake out her home.
Hawn and longtime companion Kurt Russell have been part-time Aspen-area residents for 25 years. She says, in the past, she could wander Aspen freely because the town attracted few celebrity photographers, and they were discrete.
But Hawn tells The Aspen Times it's not "like the old days anymore." She says she's had to resort to running and dodging and jumping in her car because of the paparazzi -- and feels like she can't go into her own town.
Hawn says photographers also stalk her daughter, 27-year-old actress Kate Hudson.
Hawn says she spoke with Aspen Mayor Mick Ireland about the problem.
Ireland told the Times the paparazzi pursuit was "abusive" and "inconsiderate," but that there's little the town can do.

r>3They don't often compete for parts, but William Shatner beat out Bill Cosby for his longest-running role
r>Ten years ago, online travel company Priceline.com Inc. narrowed
its list of potential spokesmen to Shatner and Cosby. The former Captain Kirk won out because he was more "futuristic," and because "anyone holding a credit card aged 18 to 95 had heard of William Shatner and knew who he was," said Brett Keller, the company's chief marketing officer
r>It has been a happy union
r>Shatner lent his credibility and camp to the company's early TV spots, in which he performed contemporary hits like "Bust a Move" in a classic lounge-lizard style
r>The ads, which became a cultural phenomenon and were sent up on NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "propelled Priceline from a second- or third-tier brand to a top-tier brand with extremely high brand awareness," Keller said
r>Shatner, too, saw a bump in his fortunes
r>After some lean years, he began finding work and was eventually cast as lawyer Denny Crane in ABC's "The Practice," then took the role to the spinoff, "Boston Legal." The part earned him an Emmy
r>"It's possible that when I was being amusing in these commercials, (writer) David Kelly saw them and brought me to mind for a part in "Boston Legal," Shatner said on the set of a new Priceline commercial
r>Shatner, 76, has played the role of Priceline spokesman for far longer than the four years he spent as Captain Kirk on the original "Star Trek" series, though he reprised that role over the next several decades
r>In the new spots, Shatner plays "The Negotiator," a superhero summoned when a customer needs help
r>Pavarotti Is Irreplaceable
r>4The Three Tenors will never re-form with a new singer replacing the late Luciano Pavarotti, tenor Jose Carreras says
r>The 61-year-old Spanish singer, who is visiting Australia to give concerts at the Sydney Opera House, said in Thursday's editions of The Australian newspaper that re-forming the immensely popular trio would be disrespectful to Pavarotti, who died of pancreatic cancer in September at age 71
r>"For Placido (Domingo) and myself to do something would betray the memory of Luciano; I don't think that would be ethical," Carreras told the newspaper
r>Carreras was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 but overcame the disease to take part in the "Three Tenors" concerts from 1990
r>Carreras told the newspaper he traveled to Pavarotti's home in Modena, Italy, and called him often as he was dying
r>"It was important to show him that someone who suffered from such a severe disease was able to overcome the situation and win the battle. This is the kind of comfort I could give him," Carreras said
