Kate Winslet is on the cover of this month’s issue of V Magazine and taking photos that pay homage to Elizabeth Taylor.
I love Kate as an actress and she’s always seemed very sure of herself as a person, which I always find admirable. She spoke about her disdain for nude scenes:
“I hate it! Listen make no mistake, I just get on it,” she says about baring it all on film. “I just go in and say ‘Oh f*ck’ let’s do it.’ and boom. If you complain about it or procrastinate it’s not going to go away. Its a profoundly bizarre thing to do. As actors you talk about it all the time. You can literally be tangled in sheets, and you turn to the other actor and say ‘What the f*ck are we doing?’ Dear Mum, at work today I had so-and-so’s left nut sack pressed against my cheek. It’s sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms.”
…and her hopes for her future as an actress:
“I hope I am shitting myself over the characters I play for the rest of my life,” Winslet tells V, in an aspirational forecast for the rest of her career. “Because the day I go ‘Oh yeah, that’s going to be a piece of pie’, why f*cking bother? If you do that, you do not learn. I hope I’m always learning something. So I won an Oscar. It’s amazing. I’ve got that for the rest of my life for a performance I am proud of. It nearly killed me. I am really proud of the film. That’s it, moving on.”
Loves it. I think that’s the attitude that all actors should have. Btw, can we talk about how tickled I am by the fact that she said “left nut sack pressed against my cheek”??!
