Ali Ammonite Comments Off on Kate Winslet Reveals She & Saoirse Ronan Choreographed Ammonite Sex Scenes: We Felt ‘Really Safe’

The actresses had total control over their sex scenes in their upcoming film Ammonite

Kate Winslet’s latest film Ammonite gave the actress control over her nude scenes.

The Oscar winner, 44, appeared on the cover of this week’s The Hollywood Reporter in which she spoke about her upcoming film opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Ammonite follows the story of Mary Anning (Winslet), a paleontologist who takes on an apprentice, Ronan’s Charlotte Murchison. The two are wary of one another at first but fall passionately in love in 1800s England.

“Saoirse and I choreographed the scene ourselves,” Winslet told THR of the most explicit scene in the movie. “It’s definitely not like eating a sandwich. I just think Saoirse and I, we just felt really safe.”

Director Francis Lee “was naturally very nervous,” the Titanic star said.

“And I just said to him, ‘Listen, let us work it out.’ And we did,” Winslet continued. “‘We’ll start here. We’ll do this with the kissing, boobs, you go down there, then you do this, then you climb up here.’ I mean, we marked out the beats of the scene so that we were anchored in something that just supported the narrative.”

Winslet referred to the moment as a career highlight. “I felt the proudest I’ve ever felt doing a love scene on Ammonite,” she said. “And I felt by far the least self-conscious.”

The period piece also stars Killing Eve’s Fiona Shaw, Gemma Jones, James McArdle and Alec Secareanu.

While Ammonite was set to play at the Cannes Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival earlier this year, the debuts were canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently, the film is scheduled to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Ali Articles Comments Off on Kate Winslet’s Role in “Contagion” Prepared Her for Coronavirus

The actress says she was wearing masks, sanitizing, and wiping things down weeks before everyone else.

Little did Kate Winslet know in 2011 that playing an Epidemic Intelligence Service officer in the film Contagion and shadowing CDC epidemiologists as research for the role would pay off in spades less than a decade later.

In her new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress discussed her approach to the current pandemic, saying, “I think it’s the unknown element of this virus — we just don’t know how it’s going to affect any given individual — I think that was what’s so terrifying. I’m a very practical, straightforward person, and if I have to respond to an emergency, I just go into that zone.”

Which is why back in February, while on set in Pennsylvania shooting HBO’s Mare of Easttown, she says*,* “People thought I was crazy because I had been walking around [Philadelphia] wearing a mask for weeks, going into the grocery store and wiping everything down with isopropyl alcohol and wearing gloves. Then all of a sudden March 13 came around, and people were like, ‘Fuck, where do I get one of those masks?'” Meanwhile, on March 13, Winslet was already on a flight back to her home in London where she’s been quarantined for the past five months.

Winslet adds that there is a bright side to forced social-distancing when it comes to award show season, explaining to the outlet, “I can be barefoot and I don’t have to put a dress on and feel sick. So it’s awesome. I can have my glass of wine just out of frame.”

However, there is one side effect of the pandemic she wasn’t prepared for: “Now that I’m going to have to go back to work, I’m like, ‘Oh fuck, I’ve forgotten how to act.’”

Ali Ammonite, Interviews, Magazines Comments Off on “Oh F***, I’ve Forgotten How to Act”: Kate Winslet, Back in the Awards Race With Same-Sex Romance ‘Ammonite,’ on Getting Back to Work

Even before reading this article I knew it would be classic Kate (love the title!) Kate is featured on the cover of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

The perennial contender on the pleasures of a quarantined awards season, the pride that came from choreographing her own sex scenes with Saoirse Ronan, and why a virtual Toronto Film Festival isn’t the end of the world: “I can be barefoot and I don’t have to put a dress on. It’s awesome.”

On March 13, the day the United States morphed into something barely recognizable, Kate Winslet was on a set in Philadelphia shooting HBO’s limited series Mare of Easttown. With just 21 days to go on a grueling 116-day shoot, the production shuttered, and she hopped on a flight back to her home in the London countryside, where she has been riding out the COVID-19 pandemic for the past five months.

“I think it’s the unknown element of this virus — we just don’t know how it’s going to affect any given individual — I think that was what’s so terrifying,” she explains. “I’m a very practical, straightforward person, and if I have to respond to an emergency, I just go into that zone.”

Perhaps it was only fitting that the actress, 44, who once embedded with CDC epidemiologists to research her role in Steven Soderbergh’s eerily prescient Contagion, became the one on set best prepared for a coming plague.

“People thought I was crazy because I had been walking around [Philadelphia] wearing a mask for weeks, going into the grocery store and wiping everything down with isopropyl alcohol and wearing gloves,” she says of the time when early reports of the virus had started to emerge from Wuhan and Europe. “Then all of a sudden March 13 came around, and people were like, ‘Fuck, where do I get one of those masks?'”

Her early caution proved predictive. She notes that two close friends have been impacted by COVID-19.

“One was in L.A. and was very lucky to get on a trial using convalescent plasma and did really, really well in the space of, like, 72 hours after the treatment,” she says. “And a dialect coach who lives in London has had it, was in hospital for 11 weeks, is out, and has had every lung test, blood test, blood pressure test, and is clear of everything but just cannot get better — is breathless, lethargic, still feels very unwell.”

On this August evening, Winslet looks every inch the pragmatic woman. Wearing a white T-shirt with a brown sweater draped over her shoulders, she’s drinking a mug of breakfast tea even though it’s well past the dinner hour. The Wi-Fi is spotty at her house in Sussex, so she’s sitting in the kitchen of a neighbor “who is in our bubble,” she says, echoing the new lockdown vernacular in which people keep a tight-knit group of family and friends with whom they socialize. If all goes as planned, she will return to Pennsylvania and the Mare of Easttown set in September. There’s a degree of trepidation, albeit unrelated to the virus.

“Now that I’m going to have to go back to work, I’m like, ‘Oh fuck, I’ve forgotten how to act,’ ” she says. “It will be with some extraordinary back-to-work protocols, which are great. But when you’re an actor in a film or a TV piece, social distancing is obviously sometimes just not possible, based on the scene.”

Ali Articles, Campaigns Comments Off on Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, more Contagion stars reunite for coronavirus PSA

Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion cast has reunited to spread infectious knowledge on how to help contain the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has killed nearly 1,400 people in the United States.

In partnership with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, and Jennifer Ehle — who all previously appeared among the principal cast of Soderbergh’s 2011 thriller about a deadly viral outbreak — teamed for a series of videos in which they share evidence-based information (supplied by university professionals) about COVID-19 in an effort to assist viewers in better protecting themselves and their communities.

“I played an epidemiologist trying to stop the spread of a hypothetical virus. To prepare for the role, I spent time with some of the best public health professionals in the world,” Winslet, who also offered tips on how to properly sneeze or cough into the pocket of your elbow, says in her clip. “What was one of the most important things they taught me? Wash your hands like your life depends on it, because, right now, in particular, it just might.”
