Evan Rachel Wood filmed nude scene with Kate Winslet's help
Evan Rachel Wood says actress Kate Winslet helped her film a full-frontal nude scene for the HBO miniseries "Mildred Pierce."
Winslet, a 35-year-old British actress, appeared naked in the 2008 movie "The Reader." She won her first Oscar for her role.
"She coached me through my first nude scene, "Wood, 23, told E! News at the recent New York premiere of "Mildred Pierce." "I mean, she's done it all. She was literally next to the camera going [thumbs-up]."
"You keep the room as empty as possible and 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," Winslet added. "It is really strange, nudity. I know I've done it many, many times now, but you never really get used to it. You don't!"
In "Mildred Pierce," Winslet plays the title character, a divorced, single mother who decides to open a restaurant business. Her new business venture does not help her strained relationship with her daughter, Veda, played by Wood. The miniseries is based on a 1941 novel by James M. Cain and is set to premiere at on March 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
Joan Crawford won an Oscar for her portrayal of Pierce in a 1945 movie, which was nominated for a total of six Academy Awards and which also starred Ann Blyth, Jack Carson and Eve Arden.
Wood, an American actress who was once engaged to shock rocker Marilyn Manson, is known for her roles in the movies "The Wrestler" and "Across the Universe" and the HBO vampire series "True Blood."
