The Curb Your Enthusiasm actress is beloved in Hollywood. In supporting her husbands campaign, is she normalizing his often dangerous ideas?

On a quiet Thursday in May, there was almost no indication that anyone in Cheryl Hiness house was running for president. A hockey stick poked out from a bush in front of the Spanish colonial home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Leaning up against a wall outside were several surfboards, caked with wax, at least one of which belonged to her husband, the 69-year-old environmental lawyer and vaccine skeptic Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who had announced his candidacy for the 2024 Democratic nomination only four weeks earlier.

In the foyer, the familys three dogs wagged their tails near a portrait of Mr. Kennedys famous uncle and aunt, John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, by the artist Romero Britto. Over the door hung an even larger portrait, of Ms. Hines and Mr. Kennedy, also by Mr. Britto, a friend of the couple.

Ms. Hines, 57, has been in many spotlights during her three decades as a professional actress, most famously for her role as Larry Davids wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but this new one is different. After a lifetime of not being particularly political, she finds herself not only married to a man from a storied American political family, but also attached to his long-shot campaign for the highest office in the country. (Mr. Kennedy is the son of former United States Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy.)
