Biography for Teri Hatcher

Teri Lynn Hatcher (born dec. 8, 1964 (57 years ago)) is an American actress who is best known for her roles as Susan Mayer in "Desperate Housewives", Lois Lane in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and as Paris Carver in the James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies. She won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her role as Susan Mayer on the TV series Desperate Housewives in 2005 (16 years ago). 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.

Early years

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 Mar. 2006 (15 years ago), 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 (19 years ago), 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 Aug. 19, 2008 (13 years ago), having served six years of his sentence.


Hatcher studied acting at the American Conservatory Theater. One of her early jobs (in 1984 (37 years ago)) was as an NFL cheerleader with the San Francisco 49ers. From sep. 1985 (36 years ago) to dec. 1986 (35 years ago), she joined the cast of the TV series The Love Boat, playing the role of "Amy", one of the "Mermaid" showgirls. From 1986 (35 years ago) to 1989 (32 years ago) she appeared in the recurring role of "Penny Parker" opposite Richard Dean Anderson's eponymous hero on the TV series MacGyver. In 1988 (33 years ago), she made a guest appearance in Star Trek: The Next Generation as Lt. Robinson. In 1989 (32 years ago) she guest starred in an episode of Quantum Leap titled "Star Crossed".

Hatcher landed a starring role of Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane (opposite Dean Cain) in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 (28 years ago) to 1997 (24 years ago). At the height of the show's popularity in 1995 (26 years ago), a picture (wallpaper) 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."

In the New adventures of Superman, the cast was worried that she would be taller than superman in heels as she was 5 foot 8.5 and the Dean Cain was 5'10 and she would have "towered" him in heels, but everything was worked out well. Hatcher beat out Monica Bellucci (49 walls) for the role of Paris Carver in the 1997 (24 years ago) James Bond movie 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 movies such as Spy Kids (2001, 20 years ago), Dead in the Water (1991, 30 years ago), 2 Days in the Valley (1996, 25 years ago) and The Cool Surface (1994, 27 years ago). She co-starred with Alec Baldwin in Heaven's Prisoners (1996, 25 years ago), which failed at the box office. ABC cancelled Lois & Clark in 1997 (24 years ago).

Hatcher made a much-discussed guest appearance on an episode of Seinfeld (4 walls), 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.

Hatcher appeared in a series of Radio Shack TV 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 (25 years ago). 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 Jan. 2005 (16 years ago). In 2005 (16 years ago), Hatcher won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award in the same category. In Jul. 2005 (16 years ago), 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 Apr. 2006 (15 years ago), Hatcher is one of the highest paid TV actresses in the United States. She reportedly earns $285,000 per episode of Desperate Housewives. In May 2006 (15 years ago), she released her first book, Burnt Toast: And Other Philosophies of Life.

Hatcher performs The Beatles (31 walls) song "Good Night" on the 2006 (15 years ago) charity album Unexpected Dreams – Songs From the Stars.

On 9 Apr. 2008 (13 years ago), Hatcher appeared on Idol Gives Back, singing Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats".

Personal life

Hatcher married Marcus Leithold on 4 Jun. 1988; they divorced the following year. On 27 May 1994 (27 years ago), she married actor Jon Tenney; they had a daughter, Emerson Rose, on 10 Nov. 1997 (24 years ago), and divorced in Mar. 2003 (18 years ago). Hatcher dated Stephen Kay, who played Reginald, the Quartermaines' butler, on General Hospital. They have now broken up.

In Jun. 2007 (14 years ago), Hatcher appeared on The Paul O'Grady Show, where she revealed she writes a column in Glamour.

In Feb. 2008 (13 years ago), 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 (12 years ago), 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.
