Helen Hunt made a splash at the beach – and the water had nothing to do with it!

On Monday, the Oscar-winning actress, 50, was photographed wearing a flattering black one-piece swimsuit at Venice Beach in L.A., while shooting scenes for her new surfer movie Ride, which she not only wrote but is also directing and producing.

In the film, Hunt plays a magazine editor who discovers her son has dropped out of college to become a surfer. Her character follows the boy to California, where she meets a surf instructor played by Luke Wilson.

It's hard to believe she's also a mother – Makena Lei, her daughter with Matthew Carnahan, is 9.

"I fell in love, I had a daughter," the actress has said about her step back from the spotlight. "It was hard to find a part that was as interesting as watching her grow up."
