Avengers: Age of Ultron star Elizabeth Olsen has Kate Winslet to thank for her willingness to bare all for a movie role, revealing she would never have felt confident stripping off for the cameras before she saw the Brit in Holy Smoke.

From a report by My Twin Tiers, Olsen tells The Edit magazine that Winslet's nude scenes in the 1999 film gave her the courage to get naked for scenes in movies like Oldboy and Martha Marcy May Marlene.

The 26-year-old says, "I remember watching Holy Smoke and thinking that it was so reassuring to see a young Kate doing something that was so bold in so many ways. I thought to myself, 'OK, so it doesn't destroy your career if you appear nude or take risks', because not everyone in my family and group of friends thought it was the best idea to be naked in a movie.

"There are actresses, young and old, who have decided never to do that and they become those examples people talk to you about... (but) there are times when I like to do it. You want that voyeuristic quality, but I never feel I have to be nude - and you won't ever see me in a beauty shot in a bikini on a beach. That's a character I will never play."

In another news according to Mirror.UK, Kate Winslet says she has "never felt more confident and happy" as she approaches her 40th birthday later this year.

The Titanic star, who is more in demand than ever, with five films due out this year, says she consults her children for advice on which roles to take.

She has a 14-year-old daughter Mia from her first marriage to Jim Threapleton, an 11-year-old son from her second marriage to director Sam Mendes, and a baby called Bear with her current husband, Richard Branson's nephew Ned Rocknroll.
