Helen Hunt - Helen Hunt Loves Good Storylines

Helen Hunt is a ''w***e for a good story''.

The 49-year-old actress spends most of her time on screen in new movie 'The Sessions' naked as she plays a sex surrogate who assists a disabled man in losing his virginity as he approaches his 40th birthday and although she didn't relish the thought of filming in the nude, she was willing to for the sake of the film.

She said: ''I'm not dying to walk around a sound stage and get naked in front of a bunch of people ... but anything less than the amount of nudity in the movie would be antithetical to the spirit of the movie.

''I think what this proves is that I'm a w***e for a good story.''

Helen also revealed she took on the role because there are a lack of good scripts.

She said: ''I was very predisposed to do it because there are so few good scripts - it just never happens.''

Meanwhile, director Ben Lewin believes Helen's role was the most difficult in the movie because it's so complex.

He said: ''I think it's a more complex character. She's so paradoxical; a middle class soccer mom who has sex with strangers.''
