Jason Reitman has praised Kate Winslet as ”one of the greatest actresses living today” and he’s glad he waited until she was ready to film ‘Labor Day’.

Jason Reitman has praised Kate Winslet as ”one of the greatest actresses living today”.
The ‘Labor Day’ director decided to wait until the Oscar-winning British actress was ready to make their new drama rather than re-cast the part when Winslet decided she wanted a break from Hollywood.

Instead, the director shot ‘Young Adult’, which earned star Charlize Theron an Oscar nomination, while co-star Josh Brolin filmed ‘Men in Black 3’.

Reitman recalled: ”Kate Winslet is one of the greatest actresses living today, and that there will ever be. If I’ve got a script that Kate Winslet is willing to say yes to, I will wait a year, I will wait five years.
”If Kate had said, ‘Fuck this s**t’, I would have found someone else. But, for the rest of my life, I get to say I directed Kate Winslet. It’s huge.”

The drama features a salacious kitchen-based sex scene and Reitman has likened it to the infamous scene between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze in ‘Ghost’.

He told Empire magazine: ”I think it’s the dirtiest sex scene I’ll ever shoot. People have been comparing it to the ‘Ghost’ ceramics scene and I like that comparison because that scene was an inch away from being ridiculous but works. I think that’s what we’ve achieved here.”

12/23/2013  •  Posted By Holly  •  Comments Off on Kate has named her newborn son!

Congratulations again to Kate, and we find the baby’s name adorable!

Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll have chosen a unique moniker for their first child together. U.K.’s The Sun reports that the couple will call their son Bear. “They are all doing so well. They both absolutely adore him – and the name Bear,” a source close to the pair said.

A spokesperson also confirms that the baby’s name is Bear Winslet. After giving birth at an NHS Hospital in Sussex on Saturday, December 7, the “Titanic” star took care of her new baby with her husband at their home in West Sussex.

Baby Bear is the third child for Winslet. She is also a mother a to 13-year-old daughter Mia from her marriage with film producer Jim Threapleton and a 10-year-old Joe with Sam Mendes. The baby boy, meanwhile, is the first child for Rocknroll.

The actress recently hit back at people who criticized her parenting skills. “People go, ‘Oh, my God! Those poor children. They must have gone through so much.’ They don’t go from pillar to post. They’re not flown here and there with nannies. That’s never happened. My children live with me. That is it. That is it,” she told Vogue.

Winslet is not the first celebrity who named her son Bear. “Clueless” star Alicia Silverstone, who is an animal right activist and a vegan, named her son Bear Blu. According to Silverstone, many people think that the name Bear is “super cute.”

12/18/2013  •  Posted By Holly  •  Comments Off on Kate threatens to sue Fathers4Justice

Actress Kate Winslet has threatened to sue parents’ rights group Fathers4Justice after they planned to attack her in a campaign following reports where she said her children live with her.

The Oscar winner’s solicitors Schillings have issued Fathers4Justice with a legal letter claiming that an advert the group were about to publish regarding comments the actress made in Vogue magazine about 50/50 parenting was ‘misleading and seriously defamatory’, the organisation claimed.

The row stems from a Vogue interview with Ms Winslet in October, where the actress claimed her children had a stable home life as they live just with her and they weren’t passed ‘from pillar to post’.
Fathers4Justice have reacted to this with a photo of the 38-year-old and the slogan ‘Kate, every child deserves their father this Christmas’ in their advertising campaign.

Despite Fathers4Justice emphasising that Ms Winslet’s private arrangements did not form the basis of their advert, they have potentially unfairly used her in a campaign about fathers’ access to their children.
Now Fathers4Justice say that before the publication of their campaign, they were contacted by Winslet’s representatives and her former director husband, Sam Mendes, claiming the advert was ‘false and damaging’.
She said: ‘People go, ‘Oh, my God! Those poor children! They must have gone through so much.’ Says who?’ the actress told Vogue when asked about the criticism she’s received for her private life.

Hollywood director Sam Mendes has criticised a fathers’ rights group after his ex-wife Kate Winslet was targeted in the organisation’s Christmas campaign. Members of Fathers4Justice, which campaigns for custodial rights for dads, have launched a new poster featuring the Oscar winner’s face alongside the caption, “Kate, every child deserves a father this Christmas.” The campaign refers to Winslet’s controversial quotes in which she claimed her two eldest children, who have different fathers, live with her full time. She said, “My kids don’t go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and dads – my children live with me, that is it.” Mendes, who has a nine-year-old son, Joe, with the actress, has now spoken out to defend his ex-wife, telling Britain’s Daily Mirror, “It is inappropriate for this organisation to involve my family and I when they know nothing of our personal circumstances. “Whilst I fully support fathers’ rights, I can happily state this has never been a concern for me or my son.” In response, a statement from the group reads, “We are running this advert as part of a campaign to highlight the sensitive issue of four million children waking up on Christmas Day without their father. It is clear from what Kate says that she does not support ‘shared parenting’.” Winslet also has a 13-year-old daughter, Mia, from her marriage to Jim Threapleton and she gave birth to a son with her third husband Ned Rocknroll on 7 December (13).
