Evan Rachel Wood survived filming her first full-frontal scene with a little help from a veteran star.

The actress, 23, and her bare body, were guided by Kate Winslet, who stars with Wood in HBO's Mildred Pierce.

"She coached me through my first nude scene," Wood told E! News, gushing, "I mean, she's done it all."

Although Winslet, 35, is experienced at baring it all for the cameras, she admits it is still a challenge each time.

"[I was] talking to [Evan] about how to find a level of confidence within something like [nudity]," Winslet explained. "It is really strange – nudity. And I know I have done it many times now. But you never really get used to it."

Added the Academy Award-winning actress, "[I let Evan] know that there was someone to hold her hand and throw a robe over her at the right moment. I think that made her feel a little bit better."
