    Probably, because she realized not all of us were Mad About her. We were instead mad that she got the statue instead of Kate Winslet in Titanic. Helen Hunt had 1 acting style, manic/spastic/ocd. If she were in the Alien movies, she'd be spastic/ocd. In the mutant/super hero films – we'd get the same acting.

    so… she got old and as her beauty faded she lost ticket power because starlets are there primarily for their youth and beauty? Replaced by a new crop of starlets who will be replaced in turn.

    Tell the truth here! Helen Hunt is a terrible actress! She over acts and lets viewers know that she's acting! It's almost like she is reading her lines in her scenes! The makings of good acting is to convince the audience that they're not acting, but being real as if the dialogue was an actual event! Helen seems to have never discovered this in her "acting".

    I like the few times when she showed the bottoms of her feet in Mad about You.

    Good for her knowing how to actually manage her fortune rather than piss it away on substance like many other fallen stars.

    That was a fantastic ending. She almost always played such a relatable person that to hear her not signing up for the next sharknado or expendables type movie is awesome!

    the reason no one hears her anymore is that she now looks like an ugly dude….

    if she is a progressive, liberal I won't go out of my way to watch her shnit, if she keeps her political opinions to herself (regardless of what they are), I will make an effort to support her. I do like her, but I hate the progressive eliteness of hollywood actors, directors and studio's.

    She has a house on Maui and a lot of the locals call her Helen Cunt! True story and if you've seen her lately you'd be suprised! She's going bald and to tell the truth I've never thought she was a good actress,just my humble opinion.
