Magazines, VideosComments Off on Meet GLAMOUR’s brand-new cover star: Kate Winslet

Kate is featured on the October cover of Glamour UK. She talks about her new film and her friendship with Leo!

And yes, we asked her about Leo…

Who doesn’t love Kate Winslet? She’s a national goddamn treasure and now she’s our brand new cover star. She wasn’t easy to get hold of though – you’ll find out why in our new issue – but she spoke about her long-term friendship with Leonardo DiCaprio (cutest story ever!), her plan B, and revealed the tricky scenes in her new movie The Mountain Between Us.

Kate Winslet on… her friendship with Leonardo DiCaprio…

“You don’t even want to know the last conversation we had, because it was so funny and made me laugh so much. We found ourselves saying to each other, ‘Can you imagine if the world really knew the stupid things we say?’ I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.”
Kate Winslet on… not having a plan B if acting didn’t work out…

“I should have had one, because if it had all gone tits up, I would have been stuck. I had a fleeting idea about becoming a hairdresser, but I cut off a friend’s earlobe trying to cut their hair. I saw him again not too long ago and I was like, ‘I’m so sorry for your earlobe.’ He said, ‘Yeah, you can still see the marks, but I’m proud of that now, Kate!”

She also gives her advice for aspiring actors…

Kate Winslet on… the filming of The Mountain Between Us being physically gruelling, and the scene where she falls through the ice on a lake before being wrenched out by Idris Elba…

“The most difficult part was being dragged soaking wet through the cold snow, but my biggest fear was not actually getting pneumonia, it was Idris [Elba] treading on my hair. I didn’t want to ruin a take by going, ‘ARGH, he’s stepping on my hair!’ And however hard it looks for me, it was harder for Idris to anchor his feet on the ice; it was freezing cold, he was also soaking wet, and I weigh a ton because all those clothes I’m wearing are soaked through.”

AwardsComments Off on Kate Winslet to Receive SAG Actors Inspiration Award

Congratulations to Kate!

Kate Winslet is an inspiration to many people, and it’s about time she’s recognized for it.

The Oscar-winning Brit will receive the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Actors Inspiration Award at the Patron of the Artists Awards ceremony, the organization announced Thursday. The star-studded event will take place on Nov. 9 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.

Winslet is being recognized for her many, many career achievements and admirable philanthropic efforts over the years.

SAG-AFTRA Foundation President JoBeth Williams said in a statement, “Without a doubt, Kate is an incomparable actress who we admire for her work and contribution to our craft. Yet, what makes Kate this year’s honoree is the work she does behind the scenes making a difference in the lives of children and adults living with autism through her Golden Hat Foundation while simultaneously supporting so many other worthwhile charities.”

Williams continued, “Kate has been a game changer and role model in our industry, setting a sterling example for all artists and leaders to use their influence to give back to the greater welfare of others. We look forward to presenting her with this award for all she has accomplished, and all she has given back.”

She joins Titanic co-star and close friend Leonardo DiCaprio, who was the first recipient of the Actors Inspiration Award.

This year’s Patron of the Artists Awards celebration will also recognize previously announced honorees Judd Apatow, director Kathryn Bigelow and Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

MoominvalleyComments Off on Kate Winslet, Rosamund Pike, Taron Egerton Sign Up for Moomins Animated Series

A star cast is headed to Moominvalley, home of the Moomins and the setting for an animated series based on the classic Finnish stories.

Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”) will voice Moomin family matriarch Moominmamma, opposite Matt Berry (“The IT Crowd”) as Moominpappa in the series “Moominvalley.” Taron Egerton (“Kingsman: The Secret Service”) is Moomintroll and Kate Winslet (“Titanic”) gives voice to Mrs. Fillyjonk.

Warwick Davis (“Harry Potter”) will play Moomintroll’s brother Sniff, and Richard Ayoade (“The IT Crowd”) the Ghost. Author Will Self will voice the Muskrat and Akiya Henry (“Bing”) will be Moomin’s girlfriend, Snorkmaiden.

Tove Jansson created the Moomins, which are one of Finland’s biggest cultural exports. Finnish production company Gutsy Animations is making and distributing the new animated series, which will have 3D animated characters on 2D backgrounds.

“Moominvalley” has been developed by the Moomin Characters business, set up by Jansson and his family, and Finnish pubcaster YLE, which will launch the 13-part series in spring 2019.

“We are thrilled with this stellar cast who have been carefully chosen to inhabit Tove Jansson’s much-loved characters,” said Gutsy’s creative director, Marika Makaroff. “They will speak to audiences young and old and for the family drama that we are creating, which doesn’t shy away from the depth and complexities of Jansson’s original work.”

Tove’s niece Sophia said: “Tove gave the inhabitants of Moominvalley the values of tolerance, love, respect, friendship and bravery, which are needed in today’s world more than ever. We’re very excited to have a wonderful cast and team who share these values bringing Moomin to life in a new way.”

Articles, Mountain Between Us, Wonder WheelComments Off on Kate Winslet Says Woody Allen’s Movie Was More Grueling Than Idris Elba Disaster Pic

The Oscar-winning actress spoke to Vanity Fair at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Kate Winslet has an Oscar, seven total Academy Award nominations, and enough heart-wrenching performances under her belt to easily qualify as one of the best living actresses. But even she has moments of massive professional insecurity—the latest of which came while filming Woody Allen’s upcoming period film Wonder Wheel.

“It was a really difficult part,” Winslet told Vanity Fair’s Krista Smith at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday. “I would spend every day just thinking, ‘I am sure I am getting this wrong.’ I was trying so hard not to be a cliché and was convinced that I was. I just wanted to do my best.”

The film is set in 1950s Coney Island, with Winslet playing a waitress in a clown house who lives above a shooting alley right in the center of an arcade.

“She isn’t really living the life she is imagining she would,” Winslet said of her character, married to a character played by Jim Belushi. “She has a son who is troubled to a certain degree. And my character embarks on an affair with a lifeguard played by Justin Timberlake. My character really believes it is worth throwing it all a way for this man, and believes that she could have another, better life. It all goes wrong when the lifeguard meets my stepdaughter, played by Juno Temple.”

Winslet had wanted to work with Allen ever since she dropped out of Match Point. Even having previously communicated with the director, though, Winslet was still freaked out by the script.

“I was actually shell-shocked because of the volume of the dialogue,” Winslet said. “I had never come across anything like it. Just the scope and the complexity of this woman was really overwhelming. I remember thinking, ‘I can’t.’ And my husband went, ‘What are you talking about? Come on. You are not going to get another go at this.’ I almost wanted to cry. I thought, ‘Do I have to do this?’”

When Winslet finally did get to set, her fear did not subside.

“Every day on the shoot felt like being on a fairground ride—like I was just clinging on for dear life. I didn’t sleep properly on the shoot because the adrenaline was firing so often. I was terrified I wouldn’t wake up. I questioned everything constantly: ‘I am going to be late. I am going to fail. I am not going to be prepared. I am going to fail. I am going to screw up.’ And Woody Allen has a way of working that is really specific in terms of his visual choices, so we would shoot gigantic scenes in one long shot—and not just the classic walk and talk, [but] long choreographed shots—cooking, smoking, talking, drinking.”

“With Justin, Jim, and Juno, we would just look at each other and go, ‘Is everyone O.K.? It’s going to be O.K.’ But as an acting challenge, it was completely immersive. I would wake up saying my hands were hurting, because my hands would be clenched in my sleep. I had divots in my hand. I didn’t really breathe properly, I don’t think, the entire shoot. I actually did throw my neck out doing a physical scene with Jim Belushi. I couldn’t really look to the left or look to the right, so you can’t drive.”

The doctor gave her a “neck collar” right before filming the drama’s final climactic scene, and that made Winslet even more worried about how Allen would react.

“He is a lot about about ailments and illnesses and skin conditions. I walked in and he just looked at me and went—[shifting into full Woody Allen impression], ‘Oh my god. What happened?’ I said, ‘No Woody, it will be fine.’ I somehow got through it. It was a total body experience playing this part. This was in some ways more physically demanding than being on a mountain with Idris Elba.”

Oh, that’s right. Did Winslet mention that she also spent months in the Canadian Rockies—negative temperatures included—for The Mountain Between Us, out in theaters October 6?

“I am lucky to be married to a man who is all about safety and has done quite a few extreme things,” Winslet said of her husband Ned Rocknroll. “He was the one giving me extra supplies. I would go up in the helicopter every day with my Ned-packed backpack—with my battery-operated heated scarf, my battery-operated gloves, my scarf, my flares, a head torch . . . you just never know what is going to happen. So he sort of prepared me for every eventuality.”

Knowing how terrifying the conditions were, why did Winslet take the role?

“I am nearly turning 42, and I have three kids, so there is something very empowering about saying I can do that [physically],” Winslet explained. “To work with someone like Idris, and be in these very extreme circumstances, and doing something supermom . . . I never would have imagined that I’d have this kind of opportunity, being a mom in my 40s.”

“It definitely toughed us up,” Winslet added, revealing that even the most routine activities were difficult in such frigid, below-zero conditions.

“What happens when you pee . . . you pee, and it freezes instantly as it leaves your body,” Winslet laughed, before providing sound effects. “It’s like clink, clink, clink. It’s hilarious.”
