Kate Winslet Topics
After Titanic it would have been completely foolish for me to go and try and top that. I'm an English girl, I've always loved England, I've never felt the desire to leave it for any particular reason. And whilst I'm ambitious and care very much about what I do, I'm not competitive. I also don't want to act every day of my life...So it was important to me after Titanic to just remind myself of why it was that I was acting in the first place, which is of course because I love it.
Since I was 13 or 14, I've always felt older than I actually am.
I'm not fat, I'm just not skinny any more. When I was skinny, I was really unhappy and unhealthy.
I've always applied the same attitude to things, an impulsive, instinctive reaction. It's hard to describe, but I often get a sense of absolute certainty - like, 'Yeah, that's the thing I really would want to do'. Maybe this is the part of me that's not very business savvy, but I never think, 'Oh, this or that will be good for me'. Only afterward will it dawn on me, where I say, 'Oh, this is good because I haven't played an everyday American woman as I do in Little Children, or a modern Englishwoman as I do in The Holiday'. It's only after I've finished it that I realize something worked out. Which is very typical of me in life. I've never been a good planner. I can plan my life and kids and everything, but in terms of work, I've never been good at it. I like the flying-by-the-seat-of-your-pants thing. Life is more interesting then.
When I was 18 and 19 and 20, I would weigh myself and write it down in my diary. I'm not that person now. I have that feeling of not caring. I'm just happy being me.
The whole concept of 'grounding' children is utterly stupid. They just go off and rebel and don't like you. When my kids eventually come along, I don't want them to not like me.
You know, I've never met Brad Pitt, and I'm really looking forward to shaking his hand.
My life did change from Titanic, and for the better in many ways, but I was only 21, and there were some things that were so tough. I just thank God I never stuck a needle in my arm, or snorted cocaine or was found drunk in a gutter, I never, ever even skimmed the edges of that world. And that's really because of my parents, how they raised me and my two sisters. But my life is so drastically different now from what it was then, my day-to-day life. I have my two kids and my marriage, and it feels like it happened to another person, which makes it easier to think through.
When you have kids, you lose any shred of vanity you may have had.
There's not an awful lot that embarrasses me. I'm the kind of actress that absolutely believes in exposing myself.
I have a crumble baby belly, boobs are worse for wear after two kids...I'm doing all right. I'm 33. I don't look in the mirror and go, 'Oh, I look fantastic!' Of course I don't.
To be honest with you, I'm more nervous through this award season than I have ever been before in my life. I'm still not used to it at all. I'm not exercising at all, and I'm eating whatever I like. Pressure? Gone! That's how I'm going to get through it.
I never had huge ambitions...never. I was fat. I didn't know any fat famous actresses. I just did not see myself in that world at all, and I'm being very sincere. You know, once a fat kid, always a fat kid. And I still sort of have that. I often look at women who wear great jeans and high heels and nice little T-shirts wandering around the city and I think, I should make more of an effort.
I don't feel like a movie star in my life at all, and I don't particularly think I behave like one. I don't have my own plane. I don't have a chef or a trainer. To me, you're a movie star only during the time when you're at the Academy Awards or at an important glamorous event. It's very much a hat that you wear, and as soon as the event's over, that hat comes off. I'm back to being me and being Mommy, and that's my priority.
I don't think I will get naked in a movie again. I can't keep getting away with it and I don't want to become 'that actress who always gets her kit off'.
I finally moved out of my parents' house. It was only fair to let my sister have her own room.
I've been Skinny; it's fu..ing boring.
I'd rather do theater and British films than move to LA in hopes of getting small roles in American films.
Just because society, and government, and whatever was different 100 years ago, doesn't mean that people didn't have s.., pick their nose, or swear.
Mum and dad were very much friends, and up to life. There was no anxiety for anything when I was growing up, they just taught me to be me.
