London: British actress Naoko Mori has confessed that she got drunk to film all the nude scenes in the new drama ‘Lennon Naked’.

The Japanese-born actress is playing Yoko Ono alongside Christopher Eccleston, who plays Beatles legend John Lennon, in the BBC Four film.

Former Torchwood star Naoko, 34, said that she was so nervous to bare all in front of the camera that she drank half a bottle of tequila before 8 am.

“I can`t really remember much of that day. Maybe it was the half bottle of tequila. I`ve always sworn I`d never do nudity on screen,” a news daily quoted her as saying.
