Kate Winslet Quotes

Kate Winslet Quotes On Body Images

As a child, I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body”. Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia , because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.

I accept my body. I accept how I am and make the best of what I am given.

I don't know how much

Kate Winslet Quotes On Challenges

I would never accept a role that wasn’t going to stretch me or challenge me in some way. I’d say Holy Smoke! probably did that more than anything I’d ever done. It took me to places I didn’t actually know I could go to, and that’s what I want my career to be all about.

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?

It’s my chance to challenge myself to the fullest, which is one of the great joys about my job… I love it when a character requires me to look less than my red-carpet best. It’s more fun playing a character that requires you to look like dog s – t.

I wanted to play incredibly challenging, multifaceted characters. Because we are all a puzzle.

For me, they definitely made it more challenging. The comfort zone factor really kicked in between Leo and I, and I just think that’s because we know each other so well. We’ve known each other since we were 20-years-old.

Yeah, acting is very

Yeah, acting is very difficult. As much as I love it, and the challenge of it, I’m so often just terrified by it.

I’m often drawn to characters that are more obviously one thing. They’re passionate, and there is always an element of strength because I think every person possesses that in some way, even if they’ve experienced hardship in their lives.

The whole concept of ‘grounding’ children is utterly stupid – they just go off and rebel and don’t like you. When my kids eventually come along, I don’t want them to not like me.

As a woman, especially when you have children, one gets so good at soldiering on – almost too good.

I ordinarily do one film a year and the rest of the time I’m at home with the kids. Even when I am working I’m still basically at home and with the kids. I’ve never left them to go to work.
