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.

How SAG Stars Got Their Start: Sofia Vergara Credits Her 'Hooker Looks'

Originally posted 01/27/2013 09:20PM



Today, she's one of the world's sexiest stars. But Sofia Vergara wasn't quite as celebrated for her curves early in her career.

The Modern Family actress was among a handful of actors who kicked off Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards with personal stories about how they got started in the business. Vergara, 40, joked about her famous figure.

"I grew up in Barranquilla, Colombia, in a very traditional Catholic home," she said. "My father told me that if I ever did anything artistic, I was going to look like a hooker. I told him, 'With these huge boobs that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!' "

Helen Hunt Directs Commercial Airing During Oscars

Originally posted 02/19/2009 05:25PM

Academy Award-winning actress Helen Hunt returns to the Oscars on Sunday – but not this time as a nominee.

Hunt directed a commercial for Frito-Lay's TrueNorth brand, which held a contest eliciting stories from people around the world who have discovered their own "true north" or passion in life.

The actress was drawn to the gig after completing her own passion project, last year's film Then She Found Me, in which she starred, wrote and directed.

"This came very out of the blue. I wasn't in the world of commercial directing, but it was really fun," Hunt, 45, a best actress winner for As Good as It Gets, tells PEOPLE. "Thousands of people sent in their stories of following their life's passion, and I was part of the group that chose this really fiery, passionate woman. I really felt inspired by her."

The 60-second ad features Lisa Nigro, an ex-Chicago police officer who founded Inspiration Café, which feeds and supports the needy.
