VIDEO: Helen Hunt Discusses Oscar Nom On CBS THIS MORNING
Academy Award-winning actress Helen Hunt said her compelling life as a mother combined with her off-screen work has kept her away from movies and television for a while, but she's looking to get back into it, in an interview that was broadcast live today, Feb. 14, 2013, on CBS THIS MORNING on the CBS Television Network (7:00 AM - 9:00 AM). Check out the appearance below!
Excerpts from the interview are below.
KING: The New York Times called your movie a pleasant shock. And I think that is a really great description. Because your first sexual experience is awkward, can be awkward under the best circumstances. So here you are, full nudity with someone who's physically challenged-were you nervous about this part?
HUNT: Stupidly, I was not. I mean, I read it and thought it was just so beautiful, and that's so rare that I said yes before I had a chance to really think about the implications. And then by the time it was time to shoot, I was so deeply in love with the spirit of the movie and the intentions of both of those people that I kind of skipped the part where I went "eek."
