Articles, Interviews, MagazinesComments Off on Kate Winslet says she’ll still be acting at 90

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.”

Winslet praised those who have come forward in the recent Hollywood sex scandal

Kate Winslet says the “tide is turning” for women in the workplace and in Hollywood.

She told the audience at the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards: “I’m sure I stand shoulder to shoulder with every woman and man here in supporting those who have had the recent courage to speak up.

“We will create change in the workplace, whatever that workplace will be.”

Winslet, 42, who won the British actress award, went on to present Jodie Foster with the inspiration award. Fellow star Ruth Negga, 35, was named woman of the year.

She spoke about growing up as the only black child at her school in Limerick, Ireland, adding: “You’re outside of something, which gives you a unique perspective.”

Other winners at the ceremony at Claridge’s in Mayfair included Carey Mulligan, who was given the philanthropy award, Victoria Beckham, who won the British brands prize, and Adwoa Aboah, who won the role model award.

Guests included Negga’s boyfriend, the actor Dominic Cooper, Georgia May Jagger and Gemma Arterton.

Articles, Images, MagazinesComments Off on Kate Winslet on Woody Allen, ‘Wonder Wheel’ and the 20th Anniversary of ‘Titanic’

Kate is on the cover of the new Variety magazine. In the article she talks about her new film Wonder Wheel, the 20th anniversary of Titanic, and being an actress in Hollywood for the past 30 years.

With an impressive career that spans three decades, more than 40 movies, seven Oscar nominations and one win, Kate Winslet is the first to tell you that she doesn’t have a process as an actress.

“It’s really interesting how every single job I do I feel like it really is different each time,” Winslet says on a sweltering fall day in New York. “I think it’s kind of like staring at a really untidy room of mess and clutter. You think: ‘Oh f—! Where do I begin?’ The clutter is different every time, and the piles will be different every time. It always feels a bit like moving trash around a room.”

Her latest role, as a deeply troubled housewife in Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel,” presented the actress with challenges she’s never had to face. Her character, Ginny, is an unpleasant narcissist in 1950s Coney Island, who carries on an affair with a self-absorbed lifeguard (Justin Timberlake) under the nose of her husband (Jim Belushi). Winslet wasn’t sure if she could portray the character when she first read the script. She compares the process to steering a car with broken parts: “She’s in a permanent state of falling apart.”

After signing on, Winslet spent a summer rehearsing on her own. On the shoot, Allen interrupted one of her early takes — he shuffled over, looked her in the eye and told her she was “too actressy.” Most stars would have buckled under such harsh directions. “I thought it was hilarious,” Winslet says. “OK, what should I do?” As she recalls, Allen responded: “You know what to do. Don’t do anything. Do it better.”

Since 1994’s “Heavenly Creatures,” Winslet has made it her mission to reinvent herself on-screen. “One of the greatest gifts I’ve had in my life is to receive the sisterhood of Kate,” says her pal Shailene Woodley, who met her in 2013 while making “Divergent.” “It’s easy to forget the amount of courage it takes to be someone like her, to stand up and talk to young women for as many years as she has about body image, self-confidence, being your own person and loving yourself.”

Our meeting with Winslet took place two weeks before bombshell stories were published in The New York Times and The New Yorker, detailing allegations that Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed and assaulted dozens of women. Winslet quickly released a statement to Variety condemning the actions of the mogul, who had worked with her on 2008’s “The Reader.” “The fact that these women are starting to speak out about the gross misconduct of one of our most important and well-regarded film producers is incredibly brave and deeply shocking to hear,” Winslet said.

Since then, Hollywood has been grappling with what can be done to stop sexual predators. Amazon, which is releasing “Wonder Wheel” on Dec. 1, has found itself in the middle of that urgent conversation. The studio’s president, Roy Price, resigned on Oct. 17 over allegations of sexual misconduct. A spotlight has also been shone on Allen. In a 2014 open letter, his daughter Dylan Farrow retold a story of how he sexually assaulted her at 7. (Allen has denied any wrongdoing. Through a representative, he declined to be interviewed for this story.)

In the current environment, Winslet is facing backlash for agreeing to work with Allen. As she enters awards season with her Oscar-buzzy part in “Wonder Wheel,” the actress will have to walk a fine line.

There’s been a discussion about actors in Woody Allen’s movies as a result of the allegations against him. Did that factor in your decision to star in his new film?
Um. [Winslet narrates her own silence.] “She pauses.” It’s just a difficult discussion. I’d rather respectfully not enter it today.

There was criticism on social media of an interview you gave to The New York Times, where you said Allen provided “an extraordinary working experience.”
I don’t read how people respond to things. We’re always as actors going to say the wrong thing. I think it’s better to respectfully step away from the discussion.

Allen had offered you a role before for his 2005 movie “Match Point.”
That’s true. Whenever this comes up, I always feel so bad for Scarlett Johansson. Things shuffle all the time. God knows how many times I’ve been the fourth or fifth choice for something.

Why did you turn it down?
It was Woody Allen, so that’s going to come around once — if ever. So of course I said yes. And very quickly, I realized I can’t do this. My son Joe was only 9 weeks old. I would have had to stop nursing. It would have been too much of a compromise to the rhythm of my life and my new baby. I just couldn’t do it. I said, “I’m really sorry, that wasn’t the right decision to have made.” I knew that there was a strong possibility that might be my one go-around.
