Imogen Poots says she didn't mind showing her bottom for A Long Way Down

Imogen Poots has said she didn't care that she had to show her bottom to her A Long Way Down co-stars including Pierce Brosnan and Aaron Paul.

The actress stars in the adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel about a group of suicidal people who form their own support group and Imogen's character ends up flashing her rear.

She said: "I feel like my bum right now is the best it's ever going to be and literally in a year's time it'll just be game over. I felt fine about it, I'm a European, we're always showing our bums to everyone, it's fine."

Asked if she felt nervous about the scene, she replied: "No, I wasn't really. I'm sure the crew were more embarrassed, they didn't really know where to look."

Imogen also praised her co-stars, including Toni Collette, saying: " Toni's an incredible actress and she's also an incredible everything, incredible mother and lady and role model. I've hopefully learned a lot from Toni - she knows a lot about wine, too, which is always a good thing.

"She has an attitude and an outlook on life which I think is something very, very special. She's just a very strong lady, no BS, and makes extraordinary choices, I think, in her work. I'm very lucky to have a woman like her in my life."

Breaking Bad star Aaron also appeared alongside Imogen in Need For Speed, shot after A Long Way Down.

Imogen said of their second joint project: "It was a huge help just having somebody holding your hand who you know inside out.

"Doing Need For Speed, the majority of time we were in the car together, so you've got four very confined walls. So it was wonderful knowing somebody well enough who you can just kick back with and be quiet around, too."
