Maybe I missed this day in history class, but I’ve never heard of Mildred Pierce. The only reason I even know the name is that my friend’s twin baby girls were in the HBO film and they got their picture taken with Kate Winslet. So my curiosity was piqued when Mildred Pierce started trending on Google. Sure, the movie is coming out soon, but why would that merit all the buzz?
Find out what the deal is on Mildred Pierce… after the jump!
So evidently, the reason why Mildred Pierce is abuzz today is that the premiere was last night. And Evan Rachel Wood rocked the red carpet with her insanely goreoug dress.
Oh, and she also has a NUDE SCENE in the film. I bet that’s a major reason for the buzz! It was reported that Evan Rachel Wood sought the advice on said nude scene from veteran nude scene actress and co-star, Kate Winslet.
E! Online reports that at the New York premiere of HBO’s miniseries “Mildred Pierce,” co-star Evan Rachel Wood described the help she got from Winslet, who plays her mother.
She coached me through my first nude scene.
Winslet said she and Wood discussed several things: If the nudity was necessary for the story; not to let lookey loo’s on set during the shoot (Winslet was there, however, rooting her along), and to always keep a robe handy.
“Mildred Pierce” airs beginning Sunday, March 27, on HBO.
