It was an obvious baby bump Gaby Hoffmann was showing off in a tight brown dress at Thursday’s screening for the new film, “Obvious Child”. The 32-year-old posed sideways to give a side view and a big smile to photographers.
Hoffmann has a four-episode stint on HBO’s Girls. She takes on the role of Carolyn Sackler, the mentally unstable sister of Adam Sackler.
Hoffmann is best known for her earlier roles in movies such as Now and Then, Sleepless in Seattle, Uncle Buck and the Field of Dreams. Her newer roles include Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus and Nate and Margaret, both in 2012.
Gaby is excited about her family addition and so is cinematographer and long-time live-in boyfriend Chris Dapkin.
Hoffmann claims she took the acting business for granted when she was younger but now she feels privileged. She says she is realizing how lucky she is as an adult to be able to do what she loves and get paid for it.
Born as Gabriella Mary “Gaby” Hoffmann, Gaby took to acting quickly. She was four years of age when she debuted in the film, Field of Dreams in 1989 and took on several more roles afterward. She filmed her role in Uncle Buck in 1989 as well. She grew tired of acting as she got older and chose to pursue a degree in literature at Bard College.
In 2001, Hoffmann decided to stop acting while studying. From 2001 to 2003 she concentrated on her major. After graduating, Hoffmann focused on plays. From 2003 to 2007, she mostly took on stage roles.
There has been no announcement as to when the baby is due, but it seems Hoffmann is back to work until the bundle of joy arrives. For now, she has figured out she enjoys acting and is eager to get on with the work.
