In her new film, Helen Hunt plays a sex surrogate who transforms a paralysed man's life and the actress says staying naked on the sets most of the time was "nerve-racking".
But the 49-year-old Oscar winner overcame her inhibitions because she wanted to be part of such a beautiful story, reported Daily Mail.
Hunt said she spent much of her screen time "utterly naked. My jaw dropped at the prospect. But then I thought, 'Do I care about what people think of my body or do I care about being part of a story that is beautiful?' At the end of the day I cared more about that."
Set during the 1980s in Berkeley, California, the film is based on the true story of journalist and poet Mark O'Brien who was paralysed with polio, and confined for hours every day to an iron lung.
