‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Cheryl Hines’ Net Worth and Why She Thinks Each Season of the Show Will Be Her Last
Unless you’re a regular viewer of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Cheryl Hines might be to you that face on one TV show or another that just looks so familiar. She’s done a lot of great acting work and landing her gig on the HBO comedy proves she’s the real deal.
Find out more about Hines, including her net worth, plus why it’s a good idea to not Google your name.
Hines is married to a Kennedy
Born in 1965 in Miami Beach, Florida, Hines married Robert Kennedy, Jr., son of the slain U.S. senator, Robert F. Kennedy in 2014.
She told People at that time, “It feels great because you know you are going to be with the person you really like to be with for a very long time. And that’s a great feeling.”
In a 2018 interview with Closer Weekly, Hines joked about life with her three husbands: first husband, Paul Young, with whom she shares a 15-year-old daughter; Larry David, who’s been her Curb Your Enthusiasm “husband” since 2000; and of course, Kennedy.
“Larry David was my first husband, because when I started doing Curb Your Enthusiasm, I was single and had never been married before. Then I married Paul Young, and then I married Robert F. Kennedy Jr.”
All men are supportive of Hines and friendly with one another.
“When I got a star on Hollywood Boulevard [in 2014], all three of them were in the front row.”
Hines says fans talk about human rights and diarrhea
The character actress who’s also appeared on episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond, The Middle, and Fresh Off the Boat, jokes about the different conversations she and husband Kennedy tend to have with various people.
“Someone will come up to Bobby basically in tears and say, ‘What you and your family have done for our country and human rights and democracy has been so important to me and my family,’ ” she said.
Then two minutes later, someone will come up to me and say, ‘I remember that time on Curb Your Enthusiasm when you had diarrhea in the car wash, and it really made us laugh.’”
Her net worth and why she refuses to Google her name
The mother of one is worth $14 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
She told USA Today in 2013 that she’s learned nothing good comes of looking her name up on Google.
“What happens to me,” she related, “and probably happens to most people, is you go down a rabbit hole when you start. . . I’ll look up, `What are the words to The Star-Spangled Banner,‘ and the next thing I know, I’m looking to see how (actor) John Stamos lost weight.”
“I somehow went down that rabbit hole one night and ended up watching a video that had been put to music of shots of my feet. I really try not to Google myself — because nothing good comes from it.”
Hines treats each season of the show like it could be her last and that seems to be the way Larry David likes it. She explained the weird dynamic to Entertainment Tonight in 2017.
“Larry told me from season one that we’re not going to another season,” she recalled. “There have been times when I was frustrated as an actor, like, ‘Are we going to do another season? Should I be looking for another job?’ Larry would always say, ‘Ah, don’t ask me these questions!’ So I just stopped asking.”
It looks like, after 20 seasons, Hines is a keeper.
