Among the many highlights of her career is hosting Saturday Night Live, playing Sally Bowles in Cabaret, and in Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues.
Hatcher still considers the first movie she ever made - The Big Picture, directed by Christopher Guest - to be her favourite. Hatcher also appeared in Soapdish, Two Days in the Valley, Spy Kids, directed by Roberto Rodriguez, and as a Bond girl in Tomorrow Never Dies.
Nor will anyone ever forget the line she made famous in Seinfeld - "They're real - and they're spectacular."
Hatcher became a New York Times best-selling author with her first book, Burnt Toast and other Philosophies of Life.
Hatcher is involved in worthy causes, including the Tuberous
Sclerosis Alliance, the Starlight Starbright Foundation and the
Make A Wish Foundation.
