DEMURE 'Mad Men' star Elisabeth Moss says she had no problem shedding clothes for the nude scenes in her new drama.

The US actress, who shot to fame as 'Mad Men's ambitious copywriter Peggy Olson, stars in 'Top Of The Lake', a BBC2 series written and directed by Oscar-winning 'The Piano' film-maker Jane Campion.

Moss (30) said of her character's love affairs in the drama: "There may be a couple of nipple slips. I'm a shy person, but Jane Campion is the last person who is about to make me feel uncomfortable or exploit me. She's the ultimate feminist."

She said: "You go through all this negotiation about what you'll show, and then you get there, three months in and tired, and you're just, 'Whatever, let's just do it'."

Moss stars alongside fellow US actress Holly Hunter in the six-part series about the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old girl, set in a remote area of New Zealand.

The actress said of preparing for her role as straight-talking detective Robin Griffin: "I worked out and got some muscle, lowered my voice, learnt an accent and trained with guns."
