London: Kate Winslet helped her latest co-star Evan Rachel Wood to go nude for new TV mini-series Mildred Pierce, it has been revealed.

Wood has told how British Oscar-winner Kate, 35, was right next to the camera, giving her an encouraging thumbs-up.

"Kate coached me through my first nude scene. I mean, she’s done it all,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

Kate herself said that making the 1950s-set series had been harder than any project since Titanic in 1997.

Mildred Pierce, made by Sky Atlantic, tells the story of a single mum and her difficult relationship with an ambitious daughter.
