Kate is featured on the cover of the December 2017 issues of Harper’s Bazaar UK, here is an excerpt from the interview!

The actress also opens up to Bazaar about why she’ll never join social media

Kate Winslet is not only one of Hollywood’s most established actresses, but she’s also one of the most liked.

This year alone she has starred in two films, The Mountain Between Us and Wonder Wheel. In a candid interview with Bazaar, she opens up about why she’ll never retire, the joy of ageing and the reason she’ll never join social media.

On why she loves being in her forties

“I don’t mind being 42 and not 22. I’m honestly OK not being sent scripts anymore where the main requirement is to be easy on the eye. I’m loving playing women who are more worn-in because of life experience. And it takes away the pressure of needing to conform, which I’ve never been very good at anyway.”

On why she’ll never stop acting

“I don’t want to be a person who won an Oscar and then disappeared off the face of the Earth. I want to be the person who is still here acting their socks off aged 90. And you don’t get there by being complacent.”

On whether she still comes under scrutiny for her appearance

“Not so much. We have celebrated curves more in the last five years.”

On the dangers of social media

“I do worry about the extra pressure to be ‘perfect’ on girls growing up now. I’m obsessed about the misuse and potential perils of social media for our younger generation. We need to be aware of how damaging to children’s self-esteem and the natural process of growing up certain aspects of this ‘sharing’ are.”
