Holly's Baseball Embarrassment

Movie star HOLLY HUNTER walked off THE TONIGHT SHOW in America on Thursday (29JAN04) after JAY LENO ridiculed her about her family and baseball skills.

However, OSCAR nominated Hunter was only joking and quickly resumed her seat on the show, but was horrified when the comic teased her about her family links to ANAHEIM ANGELS superstar TIM SALMON.

The actress only found out Salmon was her cousin last year (03) when the baseball star revealed he was related to the OSCAR winner in a SPORT ILLUSTRATED interview.

She told Leno, "I don't know how my family missed it, but they did. My whole family is from Oklahoma and so is his."

She was further humiliated when Leno showed footage of her badly pitching the first ball to her sports star cousin before an Angels game last season.
