Actress HELEN HUNT has rebounded from her failed one-year marriage to HANK AZARIA - straight into the arms of KEVIN SPACEY.
And despite AMERICAN BEAUTY star Spacey's notorious fear of commitment, pals have told American newspaper THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER he's fallen head over heels in love with Hunt. Spacey has been spotted at the AS GOOD AS IT GETS star's home, and spent the night there over a late August(00) weekend, an insider has disclosed.
A pal of the actress, who was said to be heartbroken when her six year relationship with Azaria ended, says Hunt was incredibly lonely and confused" following the split - and was helped by Spacey. The pal adds, "The couple have kept their relationship under wraps most of the summer, but now they're making public appearances together. "Kevin's private like Helen and best of all he's totally enchanted by her affections. Helen can pull an attitude or star-trip with Kevin and he'll just laugh it off."
A spokesman for Spacey confirmed the actor "has been secretly dating Helen for several weeks". (LE/NE/JM)
