BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD still shudders at the memory of performing nude in her first stage show The Hamlet Machine.

THE VILLAGE star and daughter of actor/director Ron Howard insists the 30 naked minutes caused her untold distress.

She says, "In the first play I ever did, The Hamlet Machine, I was nude on stage for half-an-hour. I am kind of over it.

"It was terrifying."
