Actress Helen Hunt opted to wear a "privacy patch" to protect her modesty on the set of The Sessions after becoming a little nervous about her nude scenes in the movie.

The Oscar winner has received another Academy Awards nomination for her role as a sex surrogate in the film but admits her courage to bare all in front of the cameras quickly faded when it came time to shoot.

The As Good as it Gets star explains, "They did offer me a privacy patch... it's a piece of fabric covers your privacy needs. I said, 'I don't need that; it's the human body, it's beautiful.'

"I got on the set and I'm like..., 'Go and get the privacy patch!'"
