Nothing like a Monday night movie premiere in the Big Apple to bring the stars out in their best! Co-stars Guy Pearce, Kate Winslet and Evan Rachel Wood donned their most glamorous looks to bring attention to their new movie, Mildred Pierce, which premiered in NYC last night at the iconic Ziegfeld Theatre. Although young star Evan always seems to ooze confidence, she had to ask her on-screen mom Kate for some advice during filming!
Evan was nervous about her nude scene in the 1930s flick, something Kate is very familiar with. “I was a lot more nervous than I thought I was going to be,” Evan told xfinityTV.com, via Huffington Post. “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.’ ”
Oh and for those not in the know, a merkin is a pubic wig — Evan had to don one to appear naked, as in the 1930s, women didn’t get bikini waxes. No wonder she was nervous!
