Happy 37th birthday Kate Winslet! (b. October 5, 1975)
“People say to me, ‘You seem to have made this conscious decision to do independent films’. In reality, I haven’t. After each movie, I always think, how different can I possibly be? Is this going to challenge me, is this going to inspire me, and is this going to make me love my job more than I already do?”
(on remarks about her weight) “It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it.”
fun fact: Kate Winslet created a whole background history for the character Rose. She says it helps her know how to go about playing the part by knowing where they came from and what they’ve gone through.
