    Helen Hunt feels "grateful to be here" following her car crash

    The 56-year-old actress was rushed to hospital last month after being involved in a terrifying smash in Los Angeles when the SUV she was in collided with another vehicle and ended up on its side, and she admits it was a "scary" moment


    Speaking alongside her 'Mad About You' co-star Paul Reiser, she said: "It was scary.

    "I'm grateful to be here with my friend."

    And Paul admitted he is also pleased Helen is still here.

    He added: "Me too."

    The pair have reunited for a revival of the 90s US sitcom, in which they play a married couple who live in New York City, and admitted they were keen to reprise their roles before they died.

    She said: "We agreed for 20 solid years that it was a terrible idea, we must never do it.

    "Then, I don't know, 'Will & Grace' was good and we realised that our [characters'] daughter - who was born the last year of the original show - would be leaving home and so suddenly an empty nest seemed like [something] we could write about."

    Paul joked: "Plus, if we waited any longer we would be dead."

    Speaking in a joint interview with 'Entertainment Tonight', Helen added: "It would be a really slow reboot."

    Following her car crash, Helen was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, and her representative admitted she was shaken but didn't suffer any major injuries.

    Helen returned to work on the 'Mad About You' set just a week after the incident.
