“There’s a real paradigm shift now because women can respond in real time. Now they will be believed when they say this is happening to them.”

ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING actress Holly Hunter grew up on a farm in Conyers, Ga., the youngest of seven children.

In addition to being one of the Peach State’s proudest exports, she has become the virtual embodiment of the notion of the independent, truth-telling woman.

She first came to the world’s attention with her breakthrough role alongside another future Oscar winner, Nicolas Cage, in 1987’s Raising Arizona.

In 1993 she was nominated for two Academy Awards the same year—quite a feat in and of itself—one for Best Supporting Actress in The Firm, and another as Best Actress in The Piano, the latter of which she won.

From 2007-2010 Hunter produced and starred in the groundbreaking cable TV series Saving Grace.

She is in Savannah Oct. 28 to receive an Icon Award at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival. We spoke to her last week.
