Helen Hunt is always glamorous whenever she steps out on the red carpet. However, the Ride actress says she much more comfortable in sweats than haute-couture.

“The people I work with beg me to put on something other than sweatpants, like, ‘Please, please don’t go out in another pair,’” Helen Hunt told People magazine.

That doesn't mean she doesn't enjoy getting all dolled up from time to time. In fact, Helen Hunt says she considers those high-glam events, like Tuesday's premier of her surfing film, Ride, the perfect "prom" moment.

“I didn’t go to my high school prom, so I try to turn those events into a prom moment.”

In Ride, Hunt plays Jackie, "an editor from The New Yorker who follows her son (Brenton Thwaites) to L.A. after he drops out of college to surf and find himself, ultimately leading Jackie on her own road to self-discovery," as reported by Entertainment Tonight.

At 51, Helen Hunt looks fabulous, healthy and glowing. She says she doesn't spend a lot of time on her beauty apart from working out with a combination of biking, hiking and yoga — “you [have to] do a little bit of everything.”

Helen Hunt shared one beauty secret with People.

“Love yourself, love yourself, love yourself. That’s kind of the aspiration that I hope I will achieve at least by the time I get to my death bed," said Hunt, who conceded she is very protective of her 10-year-old daughter Makena. “We watch very little in the way of television and commercials. I don’t want her head there, I want her head in what she’s painting, thinking, singing or learning on the violin as long as I possibly can.”
