Having starred as Lois in the ABC series "Lois and Clark," Hatcher often finds herself a role model to young
women in journalism and carries a Superman fan base that is nothing short of global. Her first movie role in
Christopher Guest's "The Big Picture" remains one of her career highlights, along with movie roles in "Soapdish,"
"Spy Kids," "Tomorrow Never Dies" and when she voiced all three mothers in Henry Selick's Oscar -nominated
animated film "Coraline." Her fearless desire to challenge herself and experience the world led her to star as
Sally Bowles in the Sam Mendes-directed touring company of "Cabaret" in 1999, for which she received critical
acclaim and standing ovations from Los Angeles to Boston. Her comedic expertise was wildly noted when she
hosted "Saturday Night Live" in 1995, landing at least two of her sketches in the "Best of SNL" highlights series.
In 2006 Hatcher wrote her first book, a funny and inspiring look at a woman finding balance between family,
career and self, entitled "Burnt Toast and Other Philosophies of Life." It remained on The New York Times
Bestseller list for four weeks.
Hatcher enjoys writing and blogging articles for Glamour UK magazine, Newsweek and more. She is raising her
teenage daughter, who is still her highest priority, and seven rescued animals, participates in triathlons and
charitable fundraisers. She has traveled to five of the seven continents, both for personal and philanthropic
ventures, and looks forward to conquering the other two soon.
Hatcher has been a cornerstone of support in many charitable causes over her more than 20 years in Hollywood,
including the Aviva Foundation, Aids and Cancer research and fundraising, Feeding America, Keeping Memory
Alive, Starlight Starbright, Make a Wish, the TS Alliance, Step Up, Chrysalis and is championing the nonprofit
Juvenille Arthritis Association, along with many more national and global causes of concern to women and
children. She considers it a blessing to be able to use her celebrity to give back in powerful ways.
Among her pop culture honors, Hatcher has had the distinction of being the most downloaded image on the
internet the year she posed wrapped in Superman's cape -- and nothing else!
