Oscar winning actress HELEN HUNT dug deep into her pocket to help New York relief charities in the wake of the Tuesday's (11SEP01) terrorist tragedy. Hunt, who was in New York at the time hijacked planes crashed into the two towers of the World Trade Centre, was spotted dining out with friends later that day in Greenwich Village.
When the restaurant's owner told his patrons he was donating the evening's proceeds to local relief charities, the AS GOOD AS IT GETS (1997) star promptly left him a $250(£193) tip. (LE/WNWCE/KMW)
