Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn in Snatched

For Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn, playing daughter and mother in the action-comedy “Snatched” felt like more than movie roles.

“I drew from my own relationship with my mother,” Schumer tells Made in Hollywood reporter Julie Harkness Arnold. “But I also feel like we really lived it out.”

Hawn says that initially she didn’t pattern her role after anything in her real life —¬†or so she thought.

“I didn’t think of anybody,” she says. “What I did learn, when my kids saw it … and they were crying, then turned around and they said, ‘Mommy, we’ve seen that look on your face.’ And they were really emotional.”

In Schumer’s followup to the hit “Trainwreck,” the actress plays the impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton who after being dumped by her boyfriend on the eve of a vacation¬†persuades her cautious mother, Linda (Hawn) to accompany her on an exotic getaway to South America. These polar opposites must work through their differences to escape from a wildly outrageous and dangerous jungle adventure.

“Action movies are really fun,” says Hawn. “You don’t get tired. When you’re out there walking up and down and running it doesn’t tire you the way sitting in a trailer or doing a scene over and over again.”
