Evan Rachel Wood goes full frontal for Mildred Pierce with a little help from Kate Winslet and a merkin! See photos and a couple of videos below from the HBO mini-series.
Kate Winslet is no stranger to having to go nekkid in a movie that is set in the 20th century. That’s why she was able to advise Evan Rachel Wood on what to do when she had to do a full-frontal scene as Veda in the upcoming HBO mini-series ‘Mildred Pierce’.
Mildred Pierce is set in the 1930s and Evan Rachel Wood is a 21st Century kinda woman, so what’s a girl to do? Winslet let Wood in on a little secret to the craft, use a merkin! Duh! That’s a little wig specially made for the pelvic area. This is how it went down according to Wood.
The “True Blood” star is slated to go full frontal in the HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce” — and at a recent NY press event explained, “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.”
According to Wood, her co-star Kate Winslet encouraged her to do it — “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.”
