    Evan Rachel Wood in Mildred Pierce.

    "I hadn't made my mind up if I was going to go full until we were rehearsing, and I was talking to Todd [Haynes, the series' writer and director] - like 'What do you think?' - and he was like, 'I think we're going to be chickening out if we don't just go for it."

    "At a New York press event for the miniseries, a retelling of the classic James M. Cain novel, Wood told us she credits Winslet, who famously bared all in The Reader, for giving her the courage to strip. 'I looked at Kate and she was like, 'You've got to do it. Trust me, it's so brave. Put a merkin on and you'll be fine.' A merkin? 'Let's just say, I had to wear a wig because it was in the '30s, and everything had to look like it was in the '30s," explained Wood with a laugh.'"

    ERW is so hot. Lots of actresses have sported a "love rug" in similar circumstances.

    I first came upon (not literally) the merkin concept back in college in the 70s. Like so many silly things, its existence often found its way into many sketches/scripts I wrote over the years.

    This reminds me of the character in Dr. Strangelove: President Merkin Muffley
