She starred in the sitcom, Mad About You, for seven years before being cast in the romantic comedy film, As Good As It Gets, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Some of her other Hollywood film credits include Twister, Cast Away, What Women Want and Pay It Forward. She made her directorial debut in 2008 with the film, Then She Found Me. Learn more here.

Ms. Hunt was a member of the Host Committee for a Hollywood fund-raising party organized by political consultant Chad Griffin and Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen held on October 20, 2009 to help support the marriage equality campaign in Maine. The invitation read:

While the fate of marriage equality in California makes its way through the Federal court system, the voters of Maine will decide whether or not to take away marriage rights, granted in May by the legislature, on November 3rd…OF THIS YEAR. That is why I am co-chairing, along with Bruce Cohen, a fundraiser for NO ON 1/PROTECT MAINE EQUALITY at Bruce’s house on Tuesday Night, October 20th from 6:30-8:30pm, and we are so hoping you will join us and/or contribute to help fight this important battle.
