London: Actress Evan Rachel Wood says co-star Kate Winslet made it easier for her to shoot her first nude scene in mini series 'Mildred Pierce'.
   
The 24-year-old actress stripped off for her role in the Oscar-winning HBO mini-series and although she was going to "chicken out" she says Winslet gave her loads of encouragement, reported website.
   
"Kate is one of the strongest, bravest women I've met. She's so confident and is so comfortable with her body which makes her so beautiful. I had to appear completely nude and I was going to chicken out, but she really put the scene and that moment into perspective and she was right.
   
"I'm so glad I did it. She was waiting with a drink for me afterwards. A toast to my first full frontal. Not that I'm in a hurry to do it again," Wood said.
   
The actress also said working with the likes of George Clooney and Robert Redford on films encouraged her to embrace her sexuality and stand up for what she believes in.
   
"Working with people like them is one of the reasons I finally came out as bisexual this year. If you're in a position where you have the opportunity to go on record and say what you believe in and hopefully help someone, I feel like there is no reason to hide who you are," Wood added.
