Even if Kate Winslet is only 12 years older than her Mildred Pierce co-star, Evan Rachel Wood, we’re totally buying them as a mother-daughter combo in the new HBO mini series. Oscar winner Kate plays a mother trying to provide a good life for her family during the Great Depression, while Evan is her daughter, Veda, who seems to be a bit of a rebel, and an opera singer, to boot.
Evan graced the white carpet at last night’s MTV VMA awards, and was also the star of a new ad for Gucci’s latest fragrance, “Guilty,” which aired during the awards.
After seeing Kate on set in her 1930s costumes, this trailer just adds to our excitement to see the series! Mildred Pierce… but we’ll have to wait until 2011!
