Calender Girls Let It All Hang Out

Actress HELEN MIRREN got her CALENDAR GIRLS co-stars so fired up about filming a difficult nude scene, even the director and crew offered to bare all in support.

The GOSFORD PARK star takes the lead in the upcoming movie, about a British women's group who posed for a controversial naked calendar to raise money for their hospital.

A veteran of on-screen nudity herself, Mirren says her castmates, including BILLY ELLIOT star JULIE WALTERS, managed the moment wonderfully.

She says, "When we did the key scenes in Calendar Girls, all of us agreed to go totally naked. We all got drunk one night and told the director NIGEL COLES our decision.

"He even offered to go naked himself, poor thing - as did the film crew - but we said, 'Hold on a minute, that's taking things a bit far.'

"Some of the actresses had never done a nude in their lives, yet there they were letting it all hang out."
