Helen Hunt Talks Nude Scenes As Sex Surrogate In 'The Sessions'
Helen Hunt, 49, who stars in the new movie, The Sessions, directed by Ben Lewin and also starring John Hawkes, William H. Macy and Rhea Perlman, about a man with an iron lung who consults a "sex surrogate," stopped by Chelsea Lately with Chelsea Handler to talk about her racy new role, and Handler, not one for wasting time, jumped right into the matter at hand.
"So, do you like being naked on screen?" Handler asked Hunt. A taken-aback Hunt stumbled over her words a bit, "No. It was ... nervous-making," she said, after which Handler quickly reacted, remarking, "Your body looks pretty hot."
"This is a good place to have a personal conversation," Hunt said before revealing that she had no time to get herself into shape before production. "It was, like, two weeks before I started shooting, so that option was off the table."
Hunt went into a little more detail about her racy nude scenes in The Sessions when she sat down with the New Zealand Herald. "It's not nothing to take your clothes off in front of a room of people," she said. "But my desire to bring this story to life outweighed my fear. I remember talking to my friend about doing it and describing how beautiful the screenplay was and saying how I'm older or whatever and I'm gonna be naked, but it just didn't seem as big a deal as the chance to be part of a movie about being human, which I feel like the movie really is about."
The Sessions is playing now in limited release.
