Her net worth also started to significantly increase as she got more opportunities, including starring in Steven Spielberg’s “Always” alongside Richard Dreyfuss.

In 1993, Holly would gain two Academy Award nominations for two separate films – “The Firm” for which she got a Best Supporting Actress nomination, and “The Piano” which would win her the Best Actress award. The success of the two films would help Hunter’s continued rise in net worth.

For her personal life, it is known that Holly is deaf in her left ear due to complications from mumps when she was a child.
