ArticlesComments Off on Kate Winslet Calls Harvey Weinstein Allegations ‘Disgraceful and Appalling’

Kate Winslet spoke exclusively to Variety about the allegations against Harvey Weinstein. I am proud of her for speaking up on such an important topic!

Kate Winslet condemned Harvey Weinstein for allegedly sexually harassing multiple women over three decades.

“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 has been deeply shocking to hear,” Winslet said in a statement given exclusively to Variety.

Winslet joins a chorus of prominent actresses, including Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Glenn Close, who all voiced their disapproval on Monday of Weinstein’s alleged conduct.

Winslet won the best actress Oscar in 2009 for her role in The Weinstein Company’s “The Reader.”

On Sunday, the board of the indie studio that Weinstein co-founded voted to terminate him with cause. He’s denied parts of a bombshell report published in the New York Times last week that detailed his alleged harassment towards women, including the actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan.

Read Winslet’s full statement below:

“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 has been deeply shocking to hear. The way Harvey Weinstein has treated these vulnerable, talented young women is NOT the way women should ever EVER deem to be acceptable or commonplace in ANY workplace.

“I have no doubt that for these women this time has been, and continues to be extremely traumatic. I fully embrace and salute their profound courage, and I unequivocally support this level of very necessary exposure of someone who has behaved in reprehensible and disgusting ways. His behaviour is without question disgraceful and appalling and very, very wrong. I had hoped that these kind of stories were just made up rumours, maybe we have all been naïve. And it makes me so angry. There must be ‘no tolerance’ of this degrading, vile treatment of women in ANY workplace anywhere in the world.”

Co-Stars, Mountain Between Us, VideosComments Off on Idris Elba says Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain among best actors he’s ever worked with

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly on Idris Elba’s home turf in London, the 45-year-old actor — who has three movies coming out before the end of this year (The Mountain Between Us, Thor: Ragnarok, and Molly’s Game) – initially tried to diplomatically hem and haw his way out of the question.

Who is the best actor you’ve ever worked with?

After a long pause, Elba rubbed the salt-and-pepper stubble on his face and finally sighed, “F—, that’s a really hard one.”

It’s designed to be.

“I don’t know what to say, man. I don’t want to offend anyone, but I think it’s a cross between Naomie Harris [with whom he costarred in 2013’s Madela: Long Walk to Freedom] and Kate Winslet [his leading lady in the high-altitude adventure-romance, The Mountain Between Us, which is in theaters now]. Both of them are like pure deliverance in every single take.”

On Winslet, Elba had this to say: “She really comes prepared. When she shows up she’s incredibly well-researched to the point where you’re like, ‘F—, really?!’ She’s like, ‘Did you know that ice doesn’t actually turn that color when it hits this type of water? She’s that rehearsed.” Elba continued, “I’m more instinctual. When you’re filming on a mountain at 10,000 feet and it’s minus-38 degrees, I could care less what color the ice is. It was a real lesson in preparation.”

When Elba finished waxing rhapsodic about Winslet, we moved on the to the next question. But he couldn’t let this one go. “Oh, can I say a third? Ruth Wilson [his costar on the BBC America cop procedural Luther]. She’s definitely on that list. She’s a beast!”

And, if you’re reading this, Jessica Chastain [Elba’s costar in the upcoming Oscar contender, Molly’s Game], fear not. About a half an hour later, Elba returned to the question yet again, saying, “Oh, I have one more. You have to include Jessica. Her performance in both this movie and The Help are bonkers.”

Avatar SequelComments Off on Kate Winslet, ‘Titanic’ director James Cameron to reunite for ‘Avatar’ sequels

Kate Winslet will star in James Cameron’s upcoming “Avatar” sequels, reuniting with the director 20 years after they collaborated on the Academy Award-winning film “Titanic.”

Winslet will play a character named Ronal in the fantasy/science fiction films. Cameron has announced his 2009 film will have four sequels, but it is not clear how many films Winslet will be a part of.

“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,” Cameron said, according to Deadline Hollywood. “I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life.”

Cameron and Winslet worked together on the 1997 epic film “Titanic.” The movie was the highest-grossing film of all time until “Avatar” surpassed it. Winslet was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Rose DeWitt Bukater in the film but lost to Helen Hunt. She won the coveted award in 2009 for “The Reader” after being nominated five times previously.

The “Avatar” sequel will also star Zoe Saldana, CCH Pounder, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang and Sigourney Weaver, who all acted in the first film, Variety reported. The first sequel is slated to premiere in Dec. 2020 then another in Dec. 2021. The other two are scheduled to premiere in Dec. 2024 and Dec. 2025.
