Many actors will have to bare all for a role. When it was time for actress Evan Rachel Wood to film her first nude scene in the upcoming HBO mini-series “Mildred Pierce,” the 23-year-old actress got some advice from her co-star who has quite a bit of experiencing baring it all in a movie… Kate Winslet.
She told E! News:
“She coached me through my first nude scene. I mean she’s done it all. She was literally next to the camera going [thumbs-up].”
Even though Winslet, 35, coached her, she still advised Wood to cover up as much as she can.
“I looked at Kate and she was like, ‘You’ve got to do it. Trust me, it’s so brave. Put a merkin on and you’ll be fine.’ Let’s just say, I had to wear a wig because it was in the ’30s, and everything had to look like it was in the ’30s.”
Another piece of advice Winslet gave to the young actress was to keep the number of people on set to a bare minimum.
“You keep the room as empty as possible. Just kind of being there for her, really, and letting her know there was someone to hold her hand and throw a robe over her at the right moment…made her feel better.”
