Paul Thomas Anderson / Remembering Sex Columnist Cynthia Heimel

Set in 1950s London, Anderson's new film, 'Phantom Thread,' stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a renowned and obsessive fashion designer. The director says he was inspired by fashion icons like Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga. 'Phantom Thread' has six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. Also, we remember sex and relationship columnist Cynthia Heimel, who died on Sunday. She was known for the humorous advice she doled out in columns for 'The Village Voice' and 'Playboy.' She spoke with Terry Gross in 1991.
