However, the union didn’t last long. The two had been separated for about six months, before Helen filed a divorce petition at a Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences. Their divorce was officially finalized in December 2000.

Meanwhile, the actor in an interview on Radio Andy, confessed there was a time that he felt jealous of his ex-wife during their relationship. He said:

When your wife is Helen Hunt, and your best friend is Matthew Perry, what was this, fifteen years ago? I mean that is some pressure. I feel jeaous.

Helen Hunt’s husband

Both Helen and Hank moved on with their lives not long after they parted. The actress started dating producer Matthew Carnahan in 2001 and broke up after a year. Seven years later they met and rekindled their romance.

The Mad About You star gave birth to their daughter, Makena Lei, in 2004. By 2017, the pair went their separate ways.

Exes on good terms

Hank in an interview with Larry King Now got candid about going through a divorce in the spotlight. The actor said that going through the process in the public eye was annoying, he and Helen are on good terms now.

Hopefully Helen’s failed marriage didn’t turn her off from matrimony for good. So maybe one day she will give marriage another chance.
