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.
