  Biography  

 early life
Hines was born in Miami Beach, Florida, a daughter of James and Rosemary Hines.

Part of the family came from Frostproof, Florida; but she grew up in Tallahassee, where she was a member of the Young Actors Theatre throughout high school. Hines also attended Lively Technical Center and Tallahassee Community College, in Tallahassee. She has two brothers and a sister and was raised Catholic. She attended West Virginia University and Florida State University, before graduating from the University of Central Florida.

 career
Before making her break in Hollywood, Hines worked as a waitress, television reporter, and telephone operator, as well as a personal assistant to Rob Reiner when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Though Reiner did not play a critical role in her career, he would watch her shows when she began acting.

Hines began her acting career by doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. Among the people she studied with was Lisa Kudrow. She also learned to write comedy sketches, which served her well when working on Curb Your Enthusiasm, on HBO, as Larry David's fictional wife, Cheryl. The show is written using the retroscripting technique, in which the plot outlines are generally and loosely drawn and the individual actors improvise to create the dialogue.

"When the show first came out, people from Tallahassee thought, 'Well, maybe Cheryl got married'", she recalls of the show's initial reception. "Sometimes, I do feel like I live two lives." In July 2006, Hines received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In films, she was one of the stars of RV opposite Robin Williams, Waitress with Keri Russell, and the 2008 mockumentary comedy The Grand, a spoof of the World Series of Poker. Her 2009 directorial debut Serious Moonlight stars Meg Ryan with a script by the late Adrienne Shelly, Hines's co-star in Waitress.

During the 2009-2010 season of Brothers and Sisters, she guest-starred as Kitty Walker McCallister's campaign manager, Buffy.

It was announced in July 2010 that Hines would be joining the cast of the new Nickelodeon film based on their series The Fairly Oddparents, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up Timmy Turner!. She served as Wanda, the main character's godmother. (She plays live-action scenes while Susan Blakeslee voices CGI scenes).

Hines serves as the executive producer for the 2010 reality series School Pride, which follows the renovation of a different school each week.

 personal life
Hines married Paul Young, founder of the management firm Principato-Young, on December 30, 2002. They have one child. Hines serves on the Board of Trustees of United Cerebral Palsy.

On July 20, 2010, Hines and Young filed papers for their divorce after nearly eight years of marriage.
