Oscar-winning actress HOLLY HUNTER's marriage came to an end because she's five months pregnant - with another man's baby. According to American tabloid the Globe, Hunter, 43, got pregnant during an affair she had with stage actor Gordon MacDonald while they co-starred in the play By The Bog Of Cats last year (2001).
The big screen beauty, who's currently filming LEVITY (2003) with BILLY BOB THORNTON in Canada, told her husband of six years, famed cinematographer JANUSZ KAMINSKI, the sordid truth, which prompted him to throw her out of their Beverly Hills, California home. Kaminski, whose credits include SAVING PRIVATE RYAN (1998), Jerry Maguire (1996) and Schindler's List (1993), then slapped Hunter with divorce papers in December (2001), citing "irreconcilable differences".
A source close to Hunter explains, "Holly had not been happy in her marriage with Janusz for a while. Gordon suits her much better. She was attracted to him because he's a great stage actor, like she is. And Holly has always wanted children, while Janusz did not. Even though Holly's affair has ruined her marriage, in the end, this is the best thing that could have happened to her. "
