Helen Hunt Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Helen Elizabeth Hunt was born on 15 June 1963, in Culver City, California USA, into the family of Jane Elizabeth, a photographer, and Gordon E. Hunt, a film director and acting coach. She is an actress, film director and screenwriter loved by audiences and valued by critics as evidenced by her being the winner of four Emmy awards, four Golden Globe awards, and two Screen Actors Guild awards.

So just how rich is Helen Hunt? Sources estimated that her  net worth grosses over $55 million as of mid-2016, earned this while working in the film industry in a career now spanning over 40 years.

Helen Hunt Net Worth $55 Million

Helen Hunt’s net worth has been accumulated beginning in her childhood, as she began being just seven years old in ‘The Mary Moore Show’ a sitcom created by James L. Brooks and ‘Burns and Allen’. Moreover, Hunt had a regular role in television series ‘The Swiss Family Robinson’ action and adventure series directed by Christian I. Nyby II and Leslie H. Martinson. Helen added to her net worth while playing the role of Sharon McNamara in the TV film ‘Having Babies’, Kristina Matchett in ‘The Spell’, Janice Hurley in ‘Transplant’, Naomi in ‘Child Bride of Short Creek’, Lizzie Eaton in ‘Angel Dusted’, Kathy Miller in ‘The Miracle of Kathy Miller’ and Sandy Cameron in ‘Desperate Lives’. In 1982, Hunt contributed significantly to her net worth by starring in a whole season of the sitcom ‘It Takes Two’ created by Susan Harris. Later, she starred in TV films including the biographical ‘Bill: On His Own’ directed by Anthony Page; the fact-based drama film ‘Quarterback Princess’ directed by Noel Black; a film based on true facts ‘Choices of the Heart’ directed by Joseph Sargent; ‘Shooter’ directed by Gary Nelson, ‘Murder in New Hampshire: The Pamela Wojas Smart Story’ directed by Joyce Chopra; and the western horror film ‘Into the Badlands’ directed by Sam Pillsburry. All added to her wealth.

The television role that brought Helen Hunt most recognition, awards, financial success and so a sharp  jump in net worth was the role of Jamie Stemple Buchman in the sitcom created by Paul Reiser and Danny Jacobson ‘Mad About You’ which was broadcast from 1992 ’til 1999. It brought Helen two Golden Globe Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Meanwhile, Hunt was also starring on the big screen, adding to her net worth, in the science fiction film ‘Trancers’ directed and produced by Charles Band; the dance film co-starring with Sarah Jessica Parker and directed by Alan Metter ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’; science fiction-thriller film ‘Project X’ co-starring with Matthew Broderick, directed by Jonathan Kaplan; and the musical ‘The Frog Prince’ directed by Jackson Hunsicker among others.

However, the films that increased Helen’s net worth the most and brought her further nominations and awards were ‘Twister’ – a disaster drama film directed by Jan de Bont; ‘As Good as It Gets’, a romantic comedy film directed by James L. Brooks; ‘What Women Want’ directed by Nancy Meyers; ‘Pay It Forward’ directed by Mimi Leder; ‘Cast Away’ – an adventure drama film directed and produced by Robert Zemeckis; ‘Bobby’  – a drama film written and directed by Emilio Estevez; ‘Then She Found Me’, a comedy-drama film directed by herself; and ‘The Sessions’, a drama film written and directed by Ben Lewin.

In her personal life, Helen Hunt married actor Hank Azaria in 1999, but they divorced in 2000. She has since been in a relationship with Matthew Carnahan, and they have a daughter together.

#Quote
1 I don't like people to think they know me. It makes me queasy.
2 My no-good Hollywood liberalism, you mean? I don't know what the right thing to do is. All I know is that when it's a month before the election, and there are issues that mean so much to me, and someone says "Put your name and your face on this, it might help", I am moved and I say yes. Do I think it's a good thing for famous people to put their name and face on stuff? I don't know. When I stop and think about it, maybe, if I want to help, I should just put a baseball hat on, not use my face at all, and be one of the people on the march, write a letter to my congressman, and just be a citizen.
3 I always used to say absolutely yes, and I didn't miss my childhood, because I was a child on the set, and often I was working with other kids. On the other hand, do I feel like I was too serious, like I had this vocation?
4 Not having incredible success for a long time probably helped. Of course some 20-year-old beautiful girl, who goes from barely acting to being on the cover [of magazines] ... that's going to be disorienting and confusing, and people can't really be surprised if they have a skewed perspective of their importance in the world, when everyone comes together and tells them they're the most important thing in the world, then hates them for believing it. I didn't go through that. So that was lucky.
5 You're not in control of anything. You're not even like a painter, who can say "I'm just going to go into my studio and do my work, and if nobody wants to buy it, well, maybe they will when I'm dead". You can't even do that. You're waiting for somebody to hand you a part. You're in this wildly dependent position.
6 On a professional level, an Oscar means that your salary suddenly increases by a few million and you get offered a lot more movies which in the past you had to beg to have a chance to read for.
7 I'm not very sexy or glamorous! I have this girl next door kind of look and I have to do the best I can with that.
8 To tell you the truth, I don't have any expensive tastes. I'm just as happy going to a beach and sitting in the sun today as I was ten years ago. I wouldn't feel comfortable if I drove there in a Bentley convertible.
