Kate Winslet booking

Category / genre:

Kate Winslet says she wanted to be an actress from the age of five but because her family members
were stage actors, she was not aware of the world of film. She attended Redroofs Theatre School and
made her debut television performance, aged 11, dancing in front of the breakfast cereal mascot, the
Honey Monster. It is ironic her first role was advertising for food because as effortlessly down-to-earth
as she seems, Winslet suffered at the hands of bullies throughout her adolescence. She was trapped
in the art cupboard at school and taunted by the nickname ‘Blubber’ for being overweight. It is this
experience that incenses her to stand up against the trend to shed weight. “I was like all those girls,’’
she said. “It was an unstoppable feeling. I starved myself. So seductive – all my bones sticking out.”
“I was that child, looking at the images of models in films, magazines and fashion shows. This is what
girls are brought up to believe, that to be thin is to be loved, adored, perfect. That’s how they’ll get a
boyfriend – by becoming like a stick insect.”
Winslet’s early roles were small parts in television until 1994, when she won the role of Juliet Hulme in
Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures which set her on an extraordinary path for a girl not yet 20-yearsold. Heavenly Creatures was a film based on the true story of two girls who murdered one of their
mothers. Winslet played a slightly perverse, intense role which was just short of over-the-top but won
her the admiration of critics. Next up was Ang Lee’s Jane Austen revival, Sense and Sensibility. Lee
called Winslet a “bold, raw talent’’ and said Winslet fainted on set several times, so immersed was she
in the masochistic, intense romanticism of her character, Marianne. So by her late teens, Winslet had
been directed by Peter Jackson and Ang Lee and starred alongside Emma Thompson who Winslet
reveres and remains close with. Winslet’s next big role was opposite rising star Leonardo DiCaprio in
1997’s Titanic, the top-grossing movie of all time by a nautical mile. Love the movie or hate it – you’ve
most likely seen it. And so she looked set to become part of the Hollywood machine, just another star
collecting her millions from the big-budget monsters. However, Winslet has always appeared to stand
apart from the other plastic Hollywood starlets, never falling drunk out of a nightclub at 4am or fussing
if a nail breaks. She calls a spade a bloody shovel and rejects the trappings of super-stardom.
Following Titanic, Winslet retained her art-house credentials, turning down scripts from America,
choosing instead to star in a modest British film, Hideous Kinky. Winslet starred as a flaky yet driven
hippie who decamps to Morocco with two daughters in the early 1970s.
It was on location in Morocco filming Hideous Kinky that Winslet met assistant director Jim
Threapleton in 1998. She said she saw him and “just knew’’. They married in November that year in
her home town of Reading and the couple were blessed by the same vicar who baptised Kate as a
child. The wedding cemented Winslet as a rare down-to-earth celebrity as the reception was held at
the bride’s favourite pub, The Crooked Billet, where guests dined on bangers and mash. In 2000, the
couple had a daughter called Mia but they separated the following year and were divorced by
Christmas 2001. By the time the split was finalised Winslet had met her second husband-to-be,
director Sam Mendes whom she would marry in 2003. In Jane Campion’s 1999 film, Holy Smoke,
Winslet plays Ruth, a young woman who goes to India with a friend and meets a guru (Harvey Keitel).
In the film, there is a scene where Winslet stands naked in the Australian scrubland with a great sky
behind her, and urinates on to the sand. She wasn’t actually urinating, she says; there was a saline
drip attached behind her head. However she claims she did insist on trying one take for real. “And the
problem is, of course, that the wee dribbles down one leg.’’ In 2000, it was back to petticoats as
Winslet portrayed a laundress who colludes with the incarcerated Marquis de Sade to help smuggle
out his writings in Quills. In Enigma, the World War II-era spy drama, she took a role that was less
emotionally charged, instead more subtle. In Iris she played the youthful incarnation of British
philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch. In 2003, a year before the release of Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Winslet and Mendes were married in a top secret wedding in the West Indies. The
wedding was attended by three close friends and her daughter Mia. The couple, who are still together,

have a son called Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes. Perhaps motherhood encouraged her to try different
roles. In 2006 she voiced the streetwise Rita, a rat living in a vast sewer metropolis stumbled upon by
a pampered pet mouse Rody (Hugh Jackman), in the animated comedy Flushed Away.
Her role in Little Children earned her another Academy Award nomination. She told television talk
show host Michael Parkinson that nude scenes never got any easier. She was unable to watch the
film, in particular the love-making scenes, with husband Sam Mendes so he went to see her
performance on his own. Winslet wept during the Parkinson interview when she revealed Mendes had
come home in tears after seeing the film and told her he was incredibly proud of his talented wife.
Winslet says she doesn’t read reviews because they give such a distorted opinion, “What matters to
me is what my mum, dad and husband think.’’ In chick flick The Holiday, Winslet stars with Cameron
Diaz, as a woman so totally over men she decides to house-swap and take a break in America.
Winslet got caught in a cross-cultural faux pas when she told reporters: “Cameron could eat me under
the table.’’ To the Brits the sentence sounds like nothing more than Diaz being a big eater, in
American parlance the phrase takes on a lewd connotation referring to oral sex. In typical Winslet
fashion, she laughed it off – even though she says the producer looked as if she was “about to vomit’’
when she made the gaff. Winslet and Mendes were given a nod in August 2007’s InStyle Magazine for
being the best Old School Hollywood couple for their stylish red-carpet public appearances. Typically
for Winslet but rather unusually for a celebrity, she was revealed as the face of Lancôme’s Tresor
perfume but she only accepted the modeling job if the company promised not to airbrush her for the
poster campaign.
Anna Winslet, Kate’s older sister, told reporters: “Kate and I don’t think men like skinny, pointy, spikey
women. She feels women should be allowed to be the natural shape they are without having to
conform into some sort of image that is never going to be what their make-up is really about.’’ Titanic
star Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet appeared again as a couple in Revolutionary Road, released
in 2009. In the same year Winslet won the Oscar for best actress for her role in The Reader.
