Cheryl Hines (born September 21, 1965) is an American actress and television director, best known for her role as Larry David's wife Cheryl on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. In 2009 she made her directorial debut at the Tribeca Film Festival with Serious Moonlight.
Hines was born in Miami Beach, Florida, the daughter of Rosemary Graham Harbolt and James Hines, whom she has described as "sort of a redneck." Part of the family came from Frostproof, Florida; Hines grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, 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.
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 come 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 as retroscripting, 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.
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 will serve as the voice of Wanda one of the the main character's (Timmy) godmother.
She is married to Paul Young, founder of the management firm Principato-Young, since December 30, 2002. Their daughter, Catherine Rose, was born on March 8, 2004. Cheryl 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.
