Since she left college, acting is the only job Jean Smart has ever had. Jean Smart accepts the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for Frasier in 2001. In a memorable scene from Hacks, Jean Smart plays a wax dummy of herself. If the dummy looks remarkably lifelike, there’s a good reason: the mannequin is, of course, just a stock-still Jean Smart. Jean Smart met her husband on the set of Designing Women and married him in co-star Dixie Carter's rose garden.
