Winslet's bum wig

When it comes to naked scenes, actresses and actors are well known to call in a body double. Kate Winslet on the other hand was given the rather unpalatable option of a pubic wig during filming of The Reader because her modern day well trimmed hedge just wasn't up to the job.

Kate gallantly explained all about her bushy woes in the new issue of Allure. “The film is set in the 50s, I couldn’t have just had a landing strip! I had to grow the hair down there. But because of years of waxing, as all of us girls know, it doesn’t come back quite the way it used to. They even made me a merkin – a wig – because they were so concerned that I might not be able to grow enough.”

Luckily Kate's fake shrubbery didn't put off 18 year old co-star David Kross, "he didn't need much help.." she quipped. Bet he didn't!
