Her film credits include Rain Man, Dave, Jerry McGuire, The Green Mile, Jumanji, Random Hearts, Only You, Cheaper By The Dozen, Cheaper By The Dozen 2, Beethoven, Beethoven's 2nd, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc., Cars, as well the films Stolen Summer, Loggerheads, I Want Someone To Eat Cheese With and Patriots.

Ms. Hunt raises funds to sponsor research for treatments and cures for cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, and she also gives her time and support to organizations such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and American Veterans. Ms. Hunt was recently honored by the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary with the True Grit Humanitarian Award.
