Kathy Bates and 'About Schmidt'

In the new film About Schmidt, Kathy Bates plays Roberta Hertzel — an aging hippie and free spirit. Jack Nicholson plays the repressed insurance salesman Warren Schmidt. In one scene Bates strips nude in front of Nicholson. It's the scene everyone is talking about. NPR's Michele Norris talks with Kathy Bates about the scene and about her career in film.
