Winslet 'feels sick before nude scenes'

Actress Kate Winslet braved the rain last night for the premiere of her new film Little Children.

Actress Kate Winslet braved the rain last night for the premiere of her new film Little Children.

The 31-year-old dazzled in a black and white floral evening gown by designer Ben de Lisi.

She also revealed that stripping off for sex scenes with co-star Patrick Wilson had left her feeling physically sick.

“As an actress, when you have to take your clothes off and get naked it’s really, really terrible,” she said.

“It’s a terrible day and when you wake up you feel sick and you think to yourself: ‘I must be absolutely mad and I must remember not to do this ever again’.”

In the drama, Winslet plays a reluctant mother and housewife who cheats on her husband and has little interest in her children.

The actress, a devoted mum to Mia, six, and Joe, three, admitted she found the role tough.

She said: “There was a part of me that thought: ‘Can I do this?’ But then I decided I was up to the challenge so I said yes.”

The film had its British premiere as part of the London Film Festival.
