Helen Hunt's crush on Rick Springfield didn't go well
Even celebrities have to deal with unrequited love sometimes. On Thursday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Helen Hunt (who currently plays Governor Patricia Eamons on Fox’s Shots Fired) revealed that she once had a crush on Rick Springfield. She was “madly in love,” in her words. Hunt said she decided to make her move when she and Springfield were studio lot neighbors — he was playing Dr. Nick Drake on General Hospital, while she was filming the short-lived series It Takes Two.
“I left a note on his car,” Hunt said. “I left it on his windshield. Somehow he managed to not call me.”
“He was hot,” host Andy Cohen agreed. “His hair was amazing.”
