Town & Country shared this feature on the Kate who Inspired Kate in her work!

“It’s through these women that I have learned about sisterhood in the working world,” she says.

When Kate Winslet received the prestigious Peter J. Owens Award for Acting from SFFILM in San Francisco last week, she took the opportunity to honor six famous women who have been role models throughout her career.

“All of these women have taught me about determination, strength and stamina, being properly prepared to play a role, but most importantly and above all else, about looking out for one another. It’s through these women that I have learned about sisterhood in the working world, which today could not be more crucial. Indeed, we must depend on it.”

Here are the six women who have inspired Kate.

Dame Judi Dench
“Judi Dench taught me how to act.”

Julie Christie
“Julie Christie taught me how to stand correctly and how to remain poised under pressure.”

Emma Thompson
“Emma Thompson, my friend, taught me about being well-behaved and generous”

Judy Davis
“The great Judy Davis taught me how to be unafraid and reckless. ”

Kathy Bates
“Kathy Bates taught me about trying out a scene in a way that I really had not planned at all.”

Jodie Foster
“Jodie Foster taught me how to stick to my guns.”

Deadline’s Actor’s Side invited Kate to their studio.

Kate Winslet visits our The Actor’s Side studio for a special two-part edition of my Deadline video series that explores the life and work of the industry’s top actors. In Part I, Winslet talks about why she never gets tired of being nominated for and winning awards. With an Oscar, Grammy and Emmy, she is just a Tony short of joining the EGOT club, and she says her 14-year-old son has made her very aware of that. But she says those awards are just a byproduct of her love for acting and the craft. She says she loves making movies now more than ever.

Among those movies we discuss in detail are her spectacular debut in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures, followed closely by Ang Lee’s Sense & Sensibility. Our conversation also leads naturally to that juggernaut known as Titanic and how she felt she could never have been prepared for the reaction or the change in her career after that movie opened. She also discusses about how she is excited to be returning to work with Titanic director James Cameron on the long-awaited Avatar sequels on which she will be doing motion-capture performing for the first time in her career. Part I wraps with what she calls the “most shocking moment of her career” (hint: it happened at the Golden Globes). Check out Part I above.

In Part II we explore one of her most beloved roles of Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and how stunned she was to get it. She also talks about her two current films. With The Mountain Between Us, she praises her tendency to like diving into extremes and how she couldn’t wait to get on that mountain with Idris Elba despite punishing conditions. Finally she details her joy in working with Woody Allen for the first time in Wonder Wheel, a movie for which she is enjoying more awards buzz. She says Woody is the best writer of women she has encountered. Wonder Wheel opens Friday through Amazon Studios.

EW shares information from James Cameron on Kate’s character for the sequel to Avatar.

James Cameron is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Titanic, in part, by reuniting with star Kate Winslet. The pair are currently filming The Avatar Sequels, a.k.a. Avatar 2, the first of four planned continuations to Cameron’s record-setting 2009 blockbuster.

“She’s very excited about it. She blazed through for a couple of days of rehearsals and saw the world that we had created, and how we do the work, and she’s very excited,” Cameron told Vanity Fair in an interview.

The director previously revealed Winslet will star as Ronal in the film and explained to Vanity Fair that she’s “a character who’s part of the Sea People, the reef people.”

“The one thing she did do is demand that she do all her own water work,” Cameron said of Winslet. “I said, ‘All right, that’s fine, we’ll have to teach you how to free dive.’ The other actors are up to three- and four-minute breath holds. We’ve already been doing underwater capture. We did a scene last week with six teenagers, well, actually five teenagers and one 7-year-old underwater holding their breath for a couple minutes and acting, actually doing a dialogue scene under water because they speak kind of a sign language.”

Winslet’s casting was first announced in October. “Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career. I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life,” Cameron said previously.

As EW revealed back in October, the second Avatar film will focus on the offspring of Jake Sully and Neytiri (original stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, who will return for the sequels). “We never had this youthful element before, and that brings a different kind of energy to the film,” Avatar producer Jon Landau told EW. “They represent the future generation of Pandora [the plant the film’s aliens, the Na’vi, call home] and play a very significant role — not just in this movie but throughout all the movies.”

The first of the Avatar Sequels is set to hit theaters in 2020, 11 years after the original. “It will be a natural extension of all the themes, and the characters, and the spiritual undercurrents,” Cameron told Vanity Fair of what fans should expect. “Basically, if you loved the first movie, you’re gonna love these movies, and if you hated it, you’re probably gonna hate these. If you loved it at the time, and you said later you hated it, you’re probably gonna love these.”
