Who better than naked pro Kate Winslet to coach you through getting your kit off in front of the cameras? The Oscars winner, who's bared her flesh in films from 1997's Titantic to 2008's The Reader, apparently advised her Mildred Pierce co-star Evan Rachel Wood on how to handle her nude debut...
Talking about taking the plunge to E! News, 23-year-old actress explained:
"She [Kate] coached me through my first nude scene. I mean, she's done it all. She was literally next to the camera going [thumbs-up].
And to Fancast.com, Marilyn Manson's ex added:
"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."
Yep, we get the idea, Evan, Brazilians weren't invented back then...
Meanwhile, Winslet herself added:
"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."
It helps to have an enviable figure like Wood or Winslet too, I suspect…
