BONNIE HUNT (Sally Carrera) adds humor and heart to the voice of a sensible sports car who has taken the road less traveled and cozied up to a rewarding life in Radiator Springs as the proprietor of the Cozy Cone Motel.

Hunt is a multitalented artist who has conquered the worlds of film, television, and theater as a performer, writer, and director. Growing up in one of Chicago's blue-collar neighborhoods, Hunt worked as a nurse's aid in high school and later became a nurse at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. She simultaneously pursued an acting career, performing at the renowned Second City. After making the move to feature films, Hunt became familiar to audiences for her hilarious and unforgettable cameos. She made her feature-film debut in Barry Levinson's "Rain Man” as the toothpick-dropping waitress and was the comically dedicated White House tour guide in "Dave” ("We're walking, we're walking…”).

In 1996, Hunt portrayed Renée Zellweger's quick-witted sister in Cameron Crowe's smash "Jerry Maguire.” Other film credits from the first half of the 1990s include "Jumanji” with Robin Williams; Norman Jewison's "Only You,” where she played Marisa Tomei's best friend; and the role of Charles Grodin's beleaguered wife in Universal's family hits "Beethoven” and "Beethoven's 2nd.”

In addition to her many onscreen successes, Hunt directed and acted in the feature "Return to Me” in 1999, which she co-wrote with longtime creative collaborator Don Lake. Starring David Duchovny, Minnie Driver, and David Alan Grier, the sweet romantic comedy was shot almost entirely in the filmmaker's home of Chicago.

In the last half of the 1990s, Hunt co-starred in "The Green Mile” with Tom Hanks, and played alongside Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas in "Random Hearts.” She also lent her voice to two Disney/Pixar features, playing Rosie the Spider in "A Bug's Life” and Flint, the haggard Scare Simulation engineer in "Monsters, Inc.”

On television, Hunt was known early in her career as a regular on two series, "Grand” and "Davis Rules.” In 1993, she became widely recognized as the first woman to write, produce, and star in her own series, "The Building.” The ensemble comedy, which she also executive produced, featured Hunt and her Second City colleagues playing young adults living in a Chicago apartment building. She then wrote, produced and starred in the critically acclaimed "Bonnie” for CBS. Her frequent and hilarious appearances on talk shows earned her Entertainment Weekly's appellation as "the hands-down best [talk show] guest in America.”

In 2002, Hunt appeared in the Miramax feature "Stolen Summer,” which gained further publicity thanks to the HBO "Project Greenlight” series chronicling the production of the film. She appeared as Kate Baker in "Cheaper by the Dozen” in 2003, and reprised the role opposite Steve Martin in the sequel "Cheaper by the Dozen 2” in 2005. In addition to roles in "Loggerheads” and the upcoming "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With,” Hunt spent the years 2002 through 2004 directing, writing and starring in the hit ABC series "Life with Bonnie,” which garnered her two Golden Globe® nominations for Lead Actress in a Comedy and an Emmy® nomination.
