The 39-year-old actress admits one of her biggest fashion mistakes came when she refused to wear underwear underneath the lace dress she wore in `Reality Bites` because she finds the garments too restrictive.
She said: "I made the huge mistake of not wearing a bra. When we were trying it on I wasn`t moving around.
"I was young and bras give me backache, you know? The first thing I do when I get home is take off my bra - but I did sort of regret it because I didn`t realise how it was going to look."
Though Winonahateswearingbras, she was happy to don a tight-fitting corset for her role in `The Age of Innocence` as it put her in the right frame of mind for the film.
She explained to Total Film magazine: "The corsets are a tremendous help to the performance, because you`re playing a repressed person and you can feel the pain they endured.
"My waist had to be 19 inches and they had to measure me every day. I would be on the floor and they would pull the strings until it was 19 inches.
"But if I did it again I would want it the same way because it made me performance."
