“Girls” alum shared that in a way she had an old-fashioned childhood.“What I had was a neighborhood, a community,” she explained. “The hotel was my little community and I had independence, freedom and I also had a hundred eyes on me at all times.

I had my own little world that I could explore at a very young age and I really had a village that was participating in raising me.”Hoffmann, 42, began acting as a child and appeared in some memorable movies, including “Uncle Buck” with fellow child actor Macaulay Culkin, “Now and Then,” “Sleepless in Seattle” and “The Man Without a Face” opposite Mel Gibson.But Hoffmann said for many years she had no desire to act as an adult. “I had no interest in being an actress when I was a kid or a teenager,” she confessed. “I just kept doing it because it was kind of fun and it was a means to an end.

I was just waiting to go to college and start my real life, which I thought was going to be as a teacher.”It wasn’t until several years later when Hoffmann found herself “depressed and anxious” and directionless that she considered going back to work as an actress.

What has followed is a string of critically acclaimed performances in independent movies and TV shows like “Transparent.”Hoffmann’s latest project is the Netflix limited series “Eric” opposite Benedict Cumberbatch.In it, she plays a mother whose young son goes missing when walking to school in New York City in the early 1980s.
