It had been eight years since Hatcher’s I last episode of Lois&Clark: TheNew Adventures of Superman had aired. In the intervening years, her star—not to mention her income—had been snuffed out. She was persona non grata until Desperate Housewives resurrected her career and thrust that Golden Globe into her hands. Ahuge hit in the 1990s, Lois&Clark ran for four seasons. To Hatcher’s surprise, Desperate Housewives has surpassed it. ‘‘Really few people have the opportunity to be part of different, iconic roles in long runs on television,’’ she says. With another big hit under her belt, the potential is there for Hatcher to have forgotten what it feels like to be a has-been. Have the trappings of success wiped the bad days from her memory? ‘‘No, the whole ride of anyone’s career— well, maybe not anyone’s, but a lot of careers—there are moments where they’re more hot than others,’’ she says. ‘‘What’s great about being in the business a long time is you recognise, respect and really cherish the momentswhenthings are gliding through a little bit easier. So I don’t take that for granted at all.’’ Asked if she returned to the hot list with an ‘‘I’ll show you!’’ attitude, Hatcher responds rather icily. N2005, a delirious Teri Hatcher (below) clutched her Golden Globe and thanked a ‘‘Absolutely not.’’ Surely she could be a little bitter. ‘‘Why would I be?’’ Well, wouldn’t it be justifiable after years of unreturned phone calls and closed doors? ‘‘Yeah, that’s not reallymeto feel that way.’’ Ohwell, there’s enough bitterness and bite to go around in thenewfilm Hatcher managed to squeeze in between Housewives seasons. The spectacular 3D animation Coraline is dark and disturbing in a Tim-Burton-for-kids type of way. Hatcher supplies the voice of a disinterested mother, her spookily toointerested parallel-world doppelganger, and the evil insect queen the doppelganger ultimately turns into. Coraline required only the occasional visit to the studio for voiceover work. Hatcher, a single parent, is unsure whether she could commit to amore demanding movie while her TV show is still running. ‘‘I’m one of those peoplewhosays you can have it all, but not at the same time. ‘‘I’m passionate about storytelling and filmmaking, especially family filmmaking, so I do look forward to being a part of making something like that. ‘‘But it’s not something I can choose to really fit inmyschedule at the moment. Unless it ends up shooting in a week or two, which might happen,’’ she says with laugh. ‘‘You never know.’’ If it doesn’t, she’s still working on ways and means to keep her second chance chugging along. ‘‘I’m doing a lot of writing and producing, that’s probably where I ammost enjoying puttingmyextra energy. And I love the show, the show’s not going anywhere. So I’ll be doing that for a while. And . . .who knows.’’ see > Coraline opens today. +
