Helen Hunt Celebrated Her Birthday With A Sweet Potato As Her Cake!

Helen Hunt Celebrated Her Birthday With A Sweet Potato As Her Cake!

Helen Hunt hit James Corden‘s couch on The Late Late Show alongside Ron Funches on Monday night (November 18) and revealed why she had a Star Wars-themed sweet potato instead of a slice of cake for her recent birthday.

“Yes, but it had BB-8 on it,” the 56-year-old actress explained, referring to the beloved Star Wars character.

“I was doing a musical at the time in New York and signing. I thought a giant glop of diary and gluten might not be my friend,” Helen continued. “My daughter got me Star Wars balloons and my friend made me sweet potato with a sparkler in it. That’s the whole story. It made me very happy.”

Helen Hunt also expressed her love of Star Wars and revealed that she will be seeing Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Christmas Day.
