About Helen Hunt (1963 – )

Helen Hunt was born on June 15th, 1963, in Los Angeles, Calif. Helen is the daughter of acting coach, Gordon Hunt and Jane Novis. Helen grew up in Los Angeles, California. Helen's talent appeared early. At the age of eight, Helen started being coached by her father in the art of acting. It wasn't long before she was ready to enter the challenging world of a thespian.

Hunt began her career as a child actor in films, theater and television. Helen Hunt is known for her work in the long running television program MAD ABOUT YOU,[1992 – 1999], for which she won awards for her portrayal of New York newlywed, Jamie; ever scrapping and making up with her artsy husband, comedian Paul Reiser, along with a bunch of New York downtown locals.

Helen Hunt is best known for her work on the movie, AS GOOD AS IT GETS, where Hunt plays Carol Connolly; a downtrodden, beleaguered waitress and mother of a special needs child. She enters into a bizarre courtship with an occasionally charming, but seriously Obsessive/Compulsive writer, played by Jack Nicholson.

Both Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson won Academy Awards for their portrayals. Helen Hunt was the second actress to win a Golden Globe;(AS GOOD AS IT GETS), an Oscar; (AS GOOD AS IT GETS), and a Primetime Emmy;(MAD ABOUT YOU TV Series) in the same year!

Besides winning her Best Actress Academy Award, Helen has won many other awards, including: four Primetime Emmys;(MAD ABOUT YOU), four Golden Globes;(MAD ABOUT YOU), two Screen Actors Guild Awards;(GOOD AS IT GETS, MAD ABOUT YOU), Four American Comedy Awards;(AS GOOD AS IT GETS, MAD ABOUT YOU), and three Viewers for Quality Television Awards;(MAD ABOUT YOU). Her family, especially her father must be very proud of her achievements.

Hunt is also known for her role in the 2000 movie with Mel Gibson, WHAT WOMEN WANT, as ad exec Darcy McGuire, who surpasses playboy Mel Gibson at a job he covets, while becoming the object of his underhanded seduction ploy, in which he uses his ability to read the thoughts of women to maneuver her into position.

In 2007, Helen Hunt wrote, directed, produced and starred in the move, AND THEN SHE FOUND ME, an adaptation of the novel by Elinor Lipman. Hunt plays April Epner, a sensitive, lonely New York schoolteacher, whose life is turned upside down when she loses her mother to a sudden death, and her husband to divorce, only to find a wacky birth mom [played by Bette Midler] and a plum, but gun shy lover [played by Colin Firth] taking their place.

Helen was married briefly from 1999 to 2000 to actor/television producer Hank Azaria. She has been with producer/director/writer Matthew Carnahan since 2001. They have a daughter Makena Lei Gordon Carnahan who was born on May 13, 2004. Helen was forty-one.
