Helen Hunt was "totally, completely naked" when she shot scenes for The Sessions
The 49-year-old actress portrays a sex surrogate in the new movie and admits she felt "vulnerable" when it came to shooting the intimate scenes. She told the New York Post
: "This poet had polio at age six. At 37, he's told he won't live much longer. With an iron lung, can only turn his head at a 90-degree angle, he wants to experience sexual life for the first time. That's when a professional sex surrogate is called in. I play the sex surrogate. The material created a vulnerability. I personally felt extremely vulnerable. No body make-up, because that gets sticky and creepy. So I did it naked. All naked. Butt naked. Totally completely naked. Naked beyond just naked.
My jaw dropped at the prospect. When I was about to take my clothes off, my palms started to sweat."
