Early life

Hines was born in Miami Beach, Florida, the daughter of Rosemary Graham Harbolt and James Hines, whom she has described as "sort of a redneck."[1] Part of the family came from Frostproof, Florida;[2] Hines grew up in Tallahassee, Florida,[2] where she was a member of the Young Actors Theatre throughout high school. Hines also attended Lively Technical Center and Tallahassee Community College in Tallahassee.

Hines attended both West Virginia University and Florida State University, before graduating from the University of Central Florida.

Career

Before making her break in Hollywood, Hines worked as a waitress, television reporter, telephone operator as well as a personal assistant to Rob Reiner when she moved to LA. Though Reiner did not play a critical role in her career, he would come watch her shows when she began acting. Hines moved to Los Angeles, California, to pursue an acting career and began by doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. Among the people she studied with was Lisa Kudrow.[2] She also learned to write comedy sketches, which served her well when working on Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO as Larry David's wife, Cheryl. The show is written as retroscripting in which the plot outlines are generally and loosely drawn and the individual actors improvise to create the dialogue.

Hines and Meg Ryan at the premiere of Serious Moonlight, Hines's directorial debut.

“When the show first came out, people from Tallahassee thought, ‘Well, maybe Cheryl got married,’” she recalls of the show’s initial reception. “Sometimes, I do feel like I live two lives.”[3 ]

In July 2006, Hines received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In films, she was one of the stars of RV opposite Robin Williams, Waitress with Keri Russell, and the 2008 mockumentary comedy The Grand, a spoof of the World Series of Poker.

Her 2009 directorial debut Serious Moonlight stars Meg Ryan with a script by the late Adrienne Shelly, Hines' co-star in Waitress.

Personal life

She is married to Paul Young, founder of the management firm Principato-Young, since December 30, 2002, and their daughter, Catherine Rose, was born on March 8, 2004.
