Helen Hunt, 56, shows off her toned physique as she enjoys a day out at the beach in Malibu

Helen Hunt is taking full advantage of the fact that LA County beaches have now reopened to the public. 

On Thursday, the 56-year-old showed off her impressive physique as she dried off after a day out at the beach. 

The Oscar-winner looked fit and fabulous displaying her toned body, before dressing down in jeans and a cap.

Helen is perhaps best known for starring on Mad About You for seven seasons from 1992–1999.

The series originally followed a couple of newlyweds (with Paul Reiser playing her husband) as they navigated their relationship and living in New York.

The new eighth season finds their relationship strained but still functioning 20 years later while their almost-grown daughter is leaving to attend nearby New York University.

 The series, which originally aired on NBC, was picked up by Spectrum Originals for what is supposed to be a one-off limited series.

The show confirms her chemistry with her co-star Paul, with whom she has a strong relationship.

‘I have remained very, very close friends with Paul, she told People recently. ‘Reboot, or no reboot we have lunch once a month. We really enjoy and care for each other.’

Though she’s best known for her acting chops, Helen turned to directing in the last few seasons of Mad About You, and also received a story credit on multiple episodes.

After directing the original two-part series finale from 1999, she was once again behind the camera for the revival’s debut episode.

While starring on the series, she won the Oscar for Best Actress for 1997’s As Good As It Gets, which also earned Jack Nicholson his third Academy Award.

She also expanded from directing TV to making her feature film directorial debut with 2007’s Then She Found Me, followed by the 2014 film Ride.
