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."
