I love the TV show Curb Your Enthusiasm and Cheryl Hines. What can you tell me about her?
—Joe Salatino, Auburn, Maine
Hines, 45, was born and raised in Florida, where she was active in theater in high school and graduated from the University of Central Florida. She worked as a personal assistant to director Rob Reiner when she first moved to Hollywood and was very active in the improv community, where she learned to write comedy sketches. She made her directorial debut in 2009 with the film Serious Moonlight, was executive producer for the 2010 reality series School Pride, and often does voice work on animated projects. Hines, who has filed for divorce from her husband of eight years, has a 7-year-old daughter.
