Lydia Susanna “Linda” Hunt (born April 2, 1945) is an American actress of stage and screen.
As Linda Hunt got older, she began to yearn for more time at home
Linda Hunt’s enthusiasm for acting has never faltered — but over the years, she’s begun to prioritize her own time at home. As she told CBS News in 2013, “I look forward to a time when I don’t have to work anymore, which is close at hand, I think.” Free time off work would mean more time to spend with her wife, Karen, and their three “doggies” (via USA Today). It might also mean more time spent on her hobbies, like reading, writing, and studying psychology.
For Hunt, acting also comes with a lot of stress. After a decades-long career, it has become difficult to manage. She told the Daily Beast, “At this time in my life, I’d rather just not do it [act] … I’d rather be the person who has more time to stretch, more time to think, more time to reach out to other people.”
As the Los Angeles Times revealed, Hunt and her wife share a beautiful but small bungalow in Hollywood. As Hunt told the publication, “I often go to the guesthouse to practice lines and look at the window of the sunroom and think how pretty it is.” No wonder she can’t wait to spend more time there!
Does Linda Hunt have any children?
Hunt rarely gives interviews and it isn’t often when her and wife Kline talk about one another in public.
However, speaking to CBS Sunday Morning, Kline did briefly explain her initial thoughts of Hunt. She joked: “I was kind of struck [by] Linda’s corduroys.”
Kline is six years younger than the NCIS LA actress which she often teases her about, saying how she “forgive[s]her daily”. While Hunt and Kline have been together for many years, they have no children together. Neither of them were married prior to starting their relationship so they also don’t have children from any previous marriage.
Hunt does have an older sister called Marcia but it is unclear if she had children herself which would make the actress an aunt. Instead, back in 2008 when they got married, Hunt and Kline adopted three dogs from Best Friends Animal Society.
