Kate Winslet is ordinarily a dab hand at acceptance speeches having picked up numerous gongs over the years, but even the pros have to phone it in sometimes, but never literally.

The Oscar-winning English actress took a rather unusual DIY approach to her acceptance speech after winning best actress for The Dressmaker at the annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, recording herself on the phone back home in England.

In the self deprecating two and a half minute speech, Winslet acknowledged it took her six takes to film her speech, after she realised she had a hole in her sweater on the fifth take. Ironic, given she won the award for her role as Aussie couturier Tilly Dunnage in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s The Dressmaker.

She begrudgingly put on lipstick and described herself as “lame” and “lazy” for not making the trip to Sydney to the awards ceremony held on Dec 9. She said she did not expect to win as she believed the best actor nod should “go to a local”.

While she gave serious thanks to cast and crew for her award, including co-star and best supporting actress winner Judy Davis, who she called “more inspiring than I think I could have ever imagined or hoped you would be”, she positively gushed about co-star Liam Hemsworth.

“Lovely Liam Hemsworth, I do have to mention him, even though he’s really, really famous and probably doesn’t need more people talking about how gorgeous he is,” said Winslet.

She added: “But I am going to have to talk about him because he is really, really gorgeous and we were very lucky to have him.”

We already know Kate Winslet is adept at surviving fiery situations, but can she outlast Mother Nature under the tutelage of Bear Grylls? We’ll all find out come July when season 2 of NBC’s surprisingly entertaining survival reality series “Running Wild” kicks off.

The show, which last summer featured stars like Zac Efron, Ben Stiller, Channing Tatum and Tom Arnold, will once feature Bear Grylls dragging some big name out to a remote part of the world to rough it for a few days. In addition to Academy Award-winner Winslet, we’ll also get time with Ed Helms, James Marsden, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Hudson, Michelle Rodriguez, and New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees. Locations revealed so far include the jungles of Panama, the Italian Alps and the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

03/20/2014  •  Posted By Holly  •  Comments Off on Kate Winslet Remembers How ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’ Helped Change Her Career

There’s at least one person not surprised Michel Gondry’s “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” is 10 years old: Kate Winslet.

“I can believe it’s 10 years. I absolutely can. I was pregnant with my son when I was shooting that movie, and he’s 10 now,” Winslet told HuffPost Entertainment in a recent interview. “I have incredible memories of ‘Eternal Sunshine.’ That was what took me to New York in the first place. I went to New York to shoot that movie and didn’t leave for nine years. It occupied the beginning of a really big chapter in my life. I always remember it very fondly.”

Winslet was 28 when “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” came out on March 19, 2004, and already a three-time Oscar nominee (“Sense and Sensibility,” “Titanic” and “Iris”). Appearing in Gondry’s film, however, was a watershed moment in her career. It provided Winslet with a leading role in a very modern story that, as written by Charlie Kaufman, combined love, science-fiction and offbeat comedy into a drama about what happens to two people after their relationship falls apart. (Jim Carrey played Winslet’s onscreen partner.)

“I think creatively it opened people’s eyes to other sides of myself as a performer,” Winslet said of playing Clementine in “Eternal Sunshine,” a character notable for her no-bull attitude and changing hair color. “I think that perhaps if it hadn’t been for that, maybe I wouldn’t necessarily have been considered for something like ‘The Reader.’ I was able to show my versatility in ‘Eternal Sunshine,’ and versatility obviously expands in all kinds of different directions.”

Of that versatility, Winslet, who next stars in this weekend’s “Divergent,” recalled how “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” specifically allowed her to branch out from the potentially limiting nature of her nationality.

“I think because I am British, there’s this sort of very strange metaphorical red carpet that is rolled out for us,” Winslet said. “People kind of think that we speak a foreign language and that we’re much more intelligent than the rest of the human race. That we fall asleep with volumes of Shakespeare by our bed. That isn’t me at all. I think ‘Eternal Sunshine’ smashed through any preconceived notions that people may have had about who I actually am.”

While “Eternal Sunshine” only grossed $34 million at the North American box office, the film enjoyed great critical acclaim and awards recognition. Kaufman won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, while Winslet received her fourth nomination overall for the role, and third in the Best Actress category. (She would later win an Oscar for “The Reader.”)

“To receive an Academy Award nomination for ‘Eternal Sunshine’ was just fantastic. Because none of us really thought that was going to happen,” Winslet said. “We were doing Michel Gondry’s completely crazy movie with Charlie Kaufman. We had no idea what it was going to be like. I always had real faith that it would be something very special, but I didn’t know.”
