In the mid-1980s, she had a recurring role on 'St. Elsewhere'
as Clancy Williams, girlfriend of Dr. Jack "Boomer" Morrison.

                            *   


TRIVIA: Got the role in 'Twister'based on her performance 
in 'The Waterdance'.

Daughter of Gordon Hunt.

Got the lead in 'As Good As It Gets' after Holly Hunter turned 
it down.

After divorcing Hank Azaria, she moved to New York, intending to 
do theater work, especially William Shakespeare. 

Dated Eric Stoltz, her 'The Waterdance' co-star.

Her best friend is Helen Slater.

Witnessed the World Trade Center attacks from the roof of her 
brand new New York apartment and decided to leave the city right 
away, but could not get a flight out. She booked a private jet at 
considerable expense and flew herself and her staff out of 
Connecticut three days later, the first day they allowed private 
jets to fly. [September 2001]

Only the second actress to win a Golden Globe, an Oscar, and an Emmy 
in the same calendar year. The first was Liza Minnelli in 1973.

Beat Teri Hatcher for the role of Jamie Buchman in "Mad About You" 
at the final auditions.


WHERE IS SHE NOW: Boy it sure seemed like after winning 
the Academy Award for 'As Good As It Gets' and the ending
of 'Mad About You', Helen seemed to fade away. Well 
nothing could be further from the truth. 

She actually appeared in many movies, in fact she appeared 
in four movies released in the year 2000. Two of them were 
in theaters at the same time during the end-of-the-year 
holiday season, and grossed over $150 million each: Cast 
Away and What Women Want.

She also hit Broadway in 'Life (x) 3'.

Helen did take some time off after the birth of her daughter.
Then hit the big screen again in the 2006 movie, 'Bobby'.

This year she wrapped up, 'Then She Found Me' which will be
released in 2008.
