In the 90s, Helen Hunt was everywhere. After she starred in the long-running sitcom “Mad About You,” Hollywood went crazy about her. But when the series was canceled in 1999, Helen’s career suddenly got a lot quieter. Oh no, she did not stop acting in movies, but Hunt’s project choices were very strange and made sense only to her.
At the peak of her career, Helen Hunt starred in two highly lucrative movies: 1997’s “As Good As It Gets,” an award-winning drama that grossed $315 million worldwide; and 1996’s “Twister,” a disaster film that grossed nearly $500 million. These big money bags solidified the actress’s future.
Right after “Mad About You” ended, she appeared in such hits as “What Women Want” and “Cast Away.” But after such prominent roles, she switched to projects that were much smaller in scale, like Woody Allen’s “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion,” “The Good Woman,” where she co-starred with Scarlett Johansson, and Emilio Estevez’s infamous “Bobby,” about the day of Kennedy’s assassination.
