ACTRESS Kate Winslet has revealed her teenage daughter was “very jealous” about her working with Liam Hemsworth in her latest film.

The 40-year-old star confessed the 15-year-old had a touch of envy about her mother’s proximity to the hunk while filming The Dressmaker.

And Mia – Kate’s daughter with her first husband Jim Threapleton – isn’t the only one with a soft spot for the 25-year-old Australian actor it seems.

During her appearance on The One Show tonight, the Titanic star agreed with host Alex Jones who described Liam as “very tasty”.

Kate revealed: “When I told my daughter that I was shooting the scene that day she [spluttering] just made a series of sounds…I took it to be jealousy. But I did feel quite bad for Liam.”

She added: “He’s a sweet guy but I couldn’t stop giggling…”

The Dressmaker, which opens on November 20th, is based on a novel by Rosalie Ham of the same name.

In the flick, Kate stars as the glamorous Myrtle Dunnage who returns to her small town in rural Australia.

With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

The blonde beauty recently celebrated her 40th birthday, and, unlike some stars, Kate couldn’t have seemed happier to have reached the milestone.

Speaking ahead of her birthday, she told Net-A-Porter’s magazine The Edit: “I don’t feel old. I feel excited about being 40. I feel like the past two years have been different for me, deliberately so.

“I really wanted to mix it up a bit and feel that I was going full pelt towards 40 having done as much as I could – pushed myself, challenged myself, exhausted myself, had as much fun as possible.

“The last two years have put a different sort of rocket fuel up my backside.”

The actress, who won an Oscar for The Reader, added: “I’m baffled that anyone might not think women get more beautiful as they get older.”

ArticlesComments Off on Kate Winslet on gender pay chat: It’s a bit vulgar

There has been a lot of discussion recently about the wage gap in Hollywood between Male and Female talent. BBC Newsbeat asked her about it and here is her response.

Jennifer Lawrence may have spoken up about the gender pay gap, but Kate Winslet’s not so keen.

“I’m having such a problem with these conversations,” Kate tells Newsbeat.

“I understand why they are coming up but maybe it’s a British thing. I don’t like talking about money; it’s a bit vulgar isn’t it?”

Women being paid less than men for the same job caused headlines again recently when Jennifer Lawrence wrote an essay about it.

Don’t expect the Winslet essay on this subject anytime soon.

“I don’t think that’s a very nice conversation to have publically at all,” admits Kate.

“I’m quite surprised by these conversations to be honest, simply because it seems quite a strange thing to be discussing out in the open like that.

“I am a very lucky woman and I’m quite happy with how things are ticking along.”

Kate Winslet stresses that it would be “dangerous” for her to comment on other people’s comments but visibly squirms when asked if she’s ever had to cope with sexism in the film industry.

“Honestly no,” she says.

“And if I’d ever been in that situation I would have either dealt with it or removed myself from it. I find all this quite uncomfortable.

“I haven’t ever felt that I’ve really had to stick up for myself just because I’m a woman.”

Kate Winslet stars alongside Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs, the movie about the iconic co-founder of Apple, released in UK cinemas this week.

She plays Joanna Hoffman, who was part of the original launch team for the first Macintosh computer, and a colleague much respected by Steve Jobs.

Both actors have already won critical praise for their roles, but Kate admits it wasn’t an easy task.

“When I read the description of Joanna as being this Polish-Armenian immigrant I just thought, ‘right and that’s supposed to be me?'”

She says she found the accent “incredibly frustrating and really difficult” and swore a lot at home trying to get it right.

As for life at home with three kids, like many, Kate’s not sure if she always gets the work/life balance right.

“I’m juggling a thousand balls and probably dropping them as good as everyone else is,” says Kate.

She’s self-aware enough though to point out that the women she really admires “work 48, 49 weeks of a year, very little holiday, five days a week and are still pulling it all off”.

“I get down time and I also get to choose,” she says.

“As a woman, for me, that’s huge because obviously I want to have time with my children and I get plenty of it so I do feel very lucky.”

Why Kate Winslet Wants More Roles Like Joanna Hoffman in ‘Steve Jobs’

In Steve Jobs, Danny Boyle’s buzzy film about the legendary Apple founder, Kate Winslet tackles a role that has brought a new sense of excitement to her storied career.

We meet in early autumn, two weeks before her 40th birthday, but Kate Winslet—her noble, luminous face suffused with pure joy—is clapping her hands like a delighted child. “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job!” she sing-songs, almost throwing her almond milk cappuccino across the Music Room of England’s glorious Goodwood House in her excitement.

The reason for the Oscar-winning actress’s delight is her latest movie, Steve Jobs, in which she plays Joanna Hoffman, the “work wife” of the late Apple creator, whose unique mix of charisma and cold blood is tackled by Michael Fassbender. Written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network), directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), and also starring Jeff Daniels and Seth Rogen, this was, on paper, a picture that had “Awards” stamped across it from the get-go. “The script was beyond brilliant,” says Winslet. “So much so that if you dropped or changed a single word, the whole thing would unravel, like a beautiful handmade jumper disintegrating into a pile of wool.” But with 23 years and some 30 films’ experience under her belt, Winslet is all too aware that a movie’s greatness is never a dead certainty. “From the beginning, I knew that I was a part of something that had the potential to be incredibly strong,” she concedes. “But watching it for the first time—and this is going to sound so stupid—I had this incredulous ‘wow’ moment. This moment where I thought, Oh my God, this film is so good and so extraordinary and I’m actually in it!”

Steve Jobs is certainly an extraordinary movie: as slick and stylized as the Apple products it pays homage to, but full of the heart and humanity that a world almost entirely powered by them can sometimes lack. Fassbender’s monstrously winning characterization is the Pentium chip that drives the story forward, but Winslet’s (at first totally unrecognizable) role as Joanna Hoffman, the company’s dark-haired, Eastern European marketing executive, is the moral compass that holds it in check.

Neatly divided into three acts, each centered on a real-life launch—of the first-ever Macintosh in 1984, the NeXT (the black cube devised by Jobs after Apple fired him) in 1988, and the iMac in 1998 (when Jobs had long since been returned to his full glory)—Steve Jobs takes us on a journey, not just through Jobs’s working life but through his living interior, too. Here is a man so profoundly disinterested in making anyone care for him that he forgets to care for the one person who actually means something to him: his daughter, Lisa. Our only real legacy in life, Sorkin seems to be saying, has to take a human form, and Winslet’s part, as the long-suffering Hoffman, is the mouthpiece through which he says it.

Just to be clear, Steve Jobs is not a biopic. Loosely based on Walter Isaacson’s definitive 2011 biography of Jobs, Sorkin’s script is first and foremost a story. “There are no invented characters,” says Winslet. “But there has been a freedom with the truth. In fact, Joanna Hoffman only appears on about three pages of the book. So, while yes, there is a Joanna Hoffman, who I spent time with, and whose crazy Polish-American dialect I tried my darndest to catch, Aaron chose to make her much more into Steve Jobs’s work wife than she actually was. She was his head of marketing, absolutely, but only for four years, and not for the 14 that the film would have us believe. What she is, in reality, is very much an amalgamation of all the women who worked at Apple over the years. What Aaron did was to pick one person who stuck out for him and channel a combination of experiences that several different women had while working for Steve Jobs.”

As soon as Winslet met Hoffman, she understood precisely why she was the character that Sorkin had chosen to hang the film’s heart on. “Aaron himself told me that, of all the people he had met whilst researching the film, Joanna had stood out for him as being a really exceptional person,” she says. “And my experience of her was certainly very similar to his. As soon as I met her, Joanna struck me as someone who has integrity in spades. She has a warmth to her. And it is through her warmth and humanity that we, the audience, are able to access Steve’s.”

While Winslet heaps praise on the real-life Hoffman, she is adamant about protecting her privacy. “I have to be sensitive because this is a woman who still lives in the world that the film centers around,” she explains.
