Helen Hunt: The Sessions
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Actress Helen Hunt says she "flatlined" when approached about playing the role of Cheryl Cohen Greene, a real life sexual surrogate whose experience working with disabled writer Mark O'Brien inspired the film The Sessions. She had no clue what a sex surrogate actually did, but after meeting Greene, she knew this was a part she wanted to play. Hunt talks about some of her favorite roles, from her Oscar-winning turn in As Good as It Gets to her small but meaningful role in Robert Zemeckis' Cast Away, to her role as writer/director in Then She Found Me. Learn what's next for the actress, and what she took away from doing all those nude scenes.
