Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood is spotted on the set of her George Clooney-directed political drama The Ides of March in Detroit on Tuesday (March 5). Co-star Ryan Gosling was also spotted on set. Check out all the pics in the gallery.
Wood is currently appearing in the HBO Depression-era miniseries Mildred Pierce with Kate Winslet. The beautiful actress explained to Fancast that the Titanic star helped her get over her fear of shooting a full-frontal nude scene that appears in the fifth and final part of the series:
"I was a lot more nervous than I thought I was going to be. 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.'"
"I looked at Kate and she was like, "You've got to do it. Trust me, it's so brave. Put a merkin [pubic wig] on and you'll be fine.' I had to wear a wig because it was in the 30s, and everything had to look like it was in the 30s."

Looking beautiful as ever, Evan Rachel Wood is seen on the set of The Ides of March at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on Tuesday (Mar. 15). Wood was seen wearing a badge identifying her as a staff member of the fictional Governor Mike Morris (played by George Clooney).
Angela Smith, an extra on Ides, had a pretty interesting write-up of her experience on set Tuesday that she posted on AnnArbor.com:
9:50 a.m. "The director comes on to stage and introduces himself to us, the audience of roughly 700 extras. Who is directing this film? Why, none other than George Clooney.
"Most of us had no idea if we would even see the superstar today, so cheers and excitement erupted throughout the theater. The captive audience has no problem following direction and enjoying Mr. Clooney’s humorous quips and light banter.
"We enjoyed every minute of his attention, and he ours. During the day he tells us about his dinner last night at Ann Arbor’s Pacific Rim, joked with us the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State, and had the crowds cheering for a University of Michigan film student named Yuri.
"There is a lot of waiting but the crew and cast are personable and friendly.
"We, the extras, are rearranged throughout the theater to shoot and reshoot a scene where George’s presidential candidate character is giving a speech about the importance of changing the world and the science of global warming. We are the enthralled supporters. We cheer and wave flags."
Being an extra sounds like fun!

According to the Cincinnati Film Commission, 26 area locations are scheduled to be used for filming
