Teri Hatcher - Biography


Teri Lynn Hatcher (born December 8, 1964) is an American actress who is best known for her roles as Lois Lane in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, as Susan Mayer in Desperate Housewives and as Paris Carver in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. She won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her role as Susan Mayer on the television series Desperate Housewives in 2005. In the same year she won the Screen Actor's Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actress in a Comedy Series and was also nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, but lost out to fellow cast member and close friend, Felicity Huffman.

Hatcher was born in Palo Alto, California, the daughter of Esther (née Beshur), a computer programmer who worked for Lockheed Martin, and Owen W. Hatcher, a nuclear physicist and electrical engineer. Hatcher's father is of Welsh and Choctaw Native American descent, and her mother is of half Syrian and half French/German descent. Hatcher grew up in Sunnyvale, California. Teri Hatcher took ballet lessons at the San Juan School of Dance in Los Altos. Her big debut was as the lead flying monkey in the "Wiz Of Oz." An only child, she attended Mango Junior High (now Sunnyvale Middle School), Fremont High School in Sunnyvale and De Anza College in Cupertino. As an undergraduate she studied mathematics and engineering.
In March 2006, Hatcher revealed to Vanity Fair that she was sexually abused from the age of five by Richard Hayes Stone, an uncle by marriage who was later divorced by Hatcher's aunt. Her parents, she said, were unaware of the abuse at the time. In 2002, she assisted Santa Clara County prosecutors with their indictment of Stone for a more recent molestation that led his female victim to commit suicide at the age of 14. Stone pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation and was sentenced to 14 years in prison. In an interview appearing in Vanity Fair, Hatcher said she told the prosecutors about her own abuse because she was haunted by thoughts of the 14-year-old girl who shot herself, and feared Stone might escape conviction. Stone died of colon cancer on August 19, 2008, having served six years of his sentence.

Hatcher studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater. One of her early jobs (in 1984) was as an NFL cheerleader with the San Francisco 49ers. During this time, she also appeared as one of the mermaids on the television series The Love Boat in its final season. One of her first major roles was Penny Parker, who served as a friend for Richard Dean Anderson's eponymous hero on the television series MacGyver from 1986 to 1989.
Hatcher landed a co-starring role of Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane (opposite Dean Cain) in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997. At the height of the show's popularity in 1995, a picture of Hatcher wrapped in a Superman cape was reportedly downloaded on the Internet 20,000 times. "It's a great shot," she told Entertainment Weekly. "Not so much because it's me. It's just cool-looking."
Hatcher beat out Monica Bellucci for the role of Paris Carver in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies. Hatcher was three months pregnant at the filming's start, by her then-husband, Jon Tenney. Her publicist said the pregnancy did not affect the production schedule. Hatcher later regretted playing Paris Carver, saying, "It's such an artificial kind of character to be playing that you don't get any special satisfaction from it." She was voted the world's sexiest woman by readers of popular men's magazine FHM in the same year. Hatcher also appeared in films such as Spy Kids (2001), Dead in the Water (1991), 2 Days in the Valley (1996) and The Cool Surface (1994). She co-starred with Alec Baldwin in Heaven's Prisoners (1996), which failed at the box office. ABC cancelled Lois & Clark in 1997. She made a guest appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation as Lt. Robinson.
Hatcher made a much-discussed guest appearance on an episode of Seinfeld, in which her character, Sidra, breaks up with Jerry because she discovers Jerry was trying to have Elaine surreptitiously determine whether Sidra had breast implants. ("They're real...and they're spectacular!")
Hatcher appeared in a series of Radio Shack television commercials alongside NFL player Howie Long. They remain close friends and together have bought farm land on the outskirts of Los Angeles, with the intent of eventually raising endangered species.
Hatcher hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live in 1996. She beat out four other actresses for one of the lead role on ABC's Desperate Housewives, on which she stars as Susan Mayer, a role for which she won the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy Golden Globe Award in January 2005. In 2005, Hatcher won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award in the same category. In July 2005, she was nominated for an Emmy Award as Best Actress in a Comedy Series for the role, along with co-stars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman.
As of April 2006, Hatcher is one of the highest paid television actresses in the United States. She reportedly earns $285,000 per episode of Desperate Housewives. In May 2006, she released her first book, Burnt Toast: And Other Philosophies of Life.
On 9 April 2008, Hatcher appeared on Idol Gives Back, singing Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats".

Hatcher married Marcus Leithold on 4 June 1988; they divorced the following year. On 27 May 1994, she married actor Jon Tenney; they had a daughter, Emerson Rose, on 10 November 1997, and divorced in March 2003. Hatcher dated Stephen Kay, who played Reginald, the Quartermaines' butler, on General Hospital. They have now broken up.
In June 2007, Hatcher appeared on The Paul O'Grady Show, where she revealed she writes a column in Glamour.
In February 2008, Hydroderm sued Hatcher for breach of contract, claiming she had promoted the beauty products of other companies. She insisted her promotion of CityLips' lip plumper did not affect the Hydroderm deal. Her attorney Alan Wertheimer called the lawsuit an "unjustified and public assault" on her "good name, reputation and celebrity." Her lawyer persuaded a judge in Los Angeles to move the case to arbitration.
On 13 September, 2009, she finished the Malibu Triathlon (0.5 mi/0.80 km ocean swim, 18 mi/29 km out-and-back bike course, and 4 mi/6.4 km out-and-back run course) in 2h 6mn 50.7s.


Teri Hatcher - Personal Quotes


"My advice, be healthy, reach your own goals and don't be afraid to impersonate a SNL star... " - AOL 7/96

"Despite the fact that I have a good-size pair of breasts... in "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" (1993), I have the opportunity to show the world they're not my only attribute".

"What's good about talking about being victimized is that it is the beginning of being able to stop it."

"I had to test, the whole rigmarole, but it was one of the greatest auditions I ever had. I left the building knowing I had this". (Regarding her audition for "Desperate Housewives" (2004)).

"Let me just say that every cover of every magazine I've done has been airbrushed to death. No woman should walk around thinking that's what they should be. You shouldn't be beating yourself up."

"I was consumed with being a mom. I didn't think beyond that." (Regarding her marriage to Jon Tenney).

"I feel more comfortable with myself now. I don't know if I feel sexier. I feel more whole." (regarding turning forty)

"I was in some deeply, deeply sad places. I wanted something to be solid for Emerson. When I was crying there, I was feeling I wouldn't be able to pay my mortgage for much longer - there was a lot of money that I'd had that I didn't have anymore. That was a low point." (regarding her marriage breakup and lack of career prospects)

"I love clothes that when you put them on, you feel like you. I don't care whether anyone else likes them" quoted in Woman's World magazine 1-31-06
