Brave are the naked

Helen Hunt takes on nudity

Helen Hunt and John Hawkes stepped out onto London’s Leicester Square red carpet, exposing surprisingly little flesh for the Oct. 16 preem of Fox Searchlight’s “The Sessions.”

Hunt had clearly become accustomed to interviewers’ encrypted compliments about playing a sex surrogate. When asked of her ‘brave’ performance in the role, she replied, “‘Brave’ means ‘naked,’ right?” putting any ciphered confusion to bed.
