Helen Hunt reveals excitement over nude scenes in 'The Sessions'

New York, Oct 19 (ANI): Helen Hunt, who was uncomfortable with roles involving nudity earlier in her career, was fine to take her clothes off for director Ben Lewin in her new movie 'The Sessions.'

The 49-year-old actress' new movie is a strange-but-true comedy-drama about 38-year-old handicapped writer Mark O'Brien (John Hawkes), who hired a sex surrogate (Helen Hunt) to take his virginity.

Hunt admitted that she had never heard of the profession before she signed on to do the flick, but delved into the sex-heavy role after learning more about her character Cheryl Cohen Greene.

She said that she was excited to play the role of the sex surrogate, as she "had this enthusiasm and this sense of adventure about sex, and I'd never seen anything like it."

"One time in my twenties, I remember thinking, 'I don't like this.' And I didn't have much power at that time to do something about it. It's terrible," the New York Post quoted her as telling Vulture magazine.

"And, of course, when I met Ben the only thing that was going to deter me from doing the movie was if I got any sort of creepy vibe from this person.

"And I got the opposite of that: His wife drove him, his adorable daughter wanted to talk to me about surfing, and he was so well spoken. I could tell he had an interesting take on the whole thing. I felt scared to do the part, but I didn't feel scared of that," she said.

The 'Cast Away' star also admitted to feeling vulnerable after filming intimate scenes with Hawkes for hours at a time.

"I did feel like I wanted to put my clothes on [at the end of the day]...It was partly modesty, but then, that was blown ten minutes into the workday," she said.

"It was more that I had to be vulnerable for so long. Twelve hours of that vulnerability! I loved it and felt liberated by it, but by the twelfth hour, I just wanted to be in my sweatpants, in my zip-up hoodie, socks on my feet, eating an In-N-Out burger in my bed," she added. (ANI)
