Actress Holly Hunter expecting twins at 47

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter
is pregnant for the first time at age 47, her spokeswoman said
on Friday.

"She is pregnant with twins and expecting this winter," the

The father is longtime boyfriend, actor Gordon MacDonald,
the publicist said.

They will be the first children for Hunter, who is divorced
from cinematographer Janusz Kaminski.

Hunter, a native of Georgia, starred as a driven TV news
producer in "Broadcast News" and won an Academy Award for
playing a mute bride in the 1993 film "The Piano."
