Winslet’s family ‘fury’ over topless Hemsworth

Kate Winslet admits she enjoyed shooting a twelve-hour scene with her Australian co-star Liam Hemsworth, who spent the entire time topless.

The Titanic actress stars alongside the heart throb in Australian film The Dressmaker and one scene features 25-year-old Hemsworth peeling off his shirt.

Winslet confessed the shoot took half a day and gained a lot of attention from female crew members as several re-takes were ordered, meaning Hemsworth had to repeatedly disrobe.

“We struggled to keep a straight face during that scene,” Winslet said to UK talk show host Graham Norton during an episode broadcast on Friday night.

“Poor Liam, for 12 hours straight we kept making him take his clothes off. We didn’t mean to!”

Getting up close to the semi-naked Hemsworth made the Oscar winner’s 15-year-old daughter Mia green with envy, Winslet admitted.

“My teenage daughter was furious that I got to be (in) the same space as him at that moment. She just made a series of sounds!”
