Oscar-winning actress Helen Hunt gets "totally, completely naked" for her new movie The Sessions.

The 49-year-old actress, who is already generating Oscar buzz for her new role, said that she got completely naked while filming some of the intimate scenes for her new movie.

Hunt said:

''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."

Hunt said:

''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.''

Hunt said that Greene has seen the film and loved it.

Hunt said:

'The day we met she quickly jumped into the shower because she had a therapy session due with a 70-year-old man... She loved the finished film because she got her message through and said the things she wanted to say.''
