03/08/2012  •  Posted By Roberta  •  Comments Off on Video and captures: Kate receives César’s Honorary Award

Kate Winslet got the verbal equivalent of a French kiss at the “37th Annual César Film Awards”.
The 36-year-old Mildred Pierce star was presented with an Honorary César award (the French equivalent of the Oscars) by French filmmaker Michel Gondry, who directed her in the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.

Appropriately dressed in a gold sequined dress by Van Cleef & Arpels, Winslet laughed as Gondry serenaded her with a sexy poem — read in French with sometimes nonsensical English translation.

“My dear Kate, it is never too late to win a César, because Kate wins late,” he began. “It’s hard work to make you come.”

To this, Winslet burst out laughing, before Gondry went on to claim that getting access to the actress’ “bottom” was a “no go.”
“In conclusion, your cleavage is generous,” he said. “Can your boobs touch my illusion… brilliant fortress of common desire.”

Winslet then took the podium and said with a sigh, “All of those comments about my cleavage!”
After thanking the crowd for honoring her with the award, she referred back to her naughty valentine.
“I’m thankful to Michel Gondry,” she said, “for talking about my boobs and my bottom on live French television.”

Winslet evidently could not get over Gondry’s cheekiness. As she walked off the stage with the director to cheers from he audience, she could be heard saying one final time, “I can’t believe you talked about my boobs and my butt!”

The British actress was the recipient of this year’s honorary César, presented to her by Michel Gondry after a retrospective of her career, to a standing ovation. The French filmmaker, who directed her in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, gave a rather unusual bilingual speech. “Ma chère Kate, Kitty, Kitty Cat, it’s never too late to win a César…” The French part of his speech recognized her as a talent, while the English part amply praised her cleavage and derrière! “Michel was my introduction to French cinema,” Winslet said afterwards. But she seemed even more proud to have worked with Roman Polanski (in Carnage) and wanted to remind everyone twice. “I’m going to say it again, I worked for Roman Polanski!” and ended her speech in the local tongue: “Merci de votre gentillesse et cette charmante soirée!” (Thank you for your kindness and this charming evening.)

She wore a stunning Jenny Packham dress to the event. Correction: Kate wore a stunning Van Cleef & Arpels dress along with the Virevolte earrings in yellow gold and diamonds and the Galuchat bracelet in yellow gold and diamonds.

Today is Valentine’s Day, and we asked Kate Winslet if she’s doing anything to celebrate.

“I might be,” says the Academy Award-winning actress with a mysterious glint in her eye. “I might be not. That’s my answer.”

OK, OK, we understand — even if we’re still dying to know! While she’s keeping her love life a secret — can you blame her? — she happily chatted up the 3D release of Titanic, officially out on April 2 but screening in 44 cities today as part of a special Valentine’s Day preview (sorry, the free tickets have all been snapped up).

“I do feel very excited about it, because I can tell that a whole new generation is going to get to experience the film,” says the 36-year-old actress. “(My children) Mia (11 years old) and Joe (8 years old) still have not seen it. So it is very exciting that I can actually sit with them — together — and we can all watch it together in a movie theater, and that is going to be quite amazing, actually.”

What do the kids think of their famous mom’s most iconic role thus far? “They’re actually really not interested. But they are intrigued, I think, would be fair to say.” Winslet, on the other hand, is “slightly freaked out” about revisiting her 21-year-old self on screen. “I’m sure I wasn’t really a very good actress. Seriously, we are talking about something that happened 15 years ago. It is a very long time ago. I’ve learned so much, and I’ve changed as a person so much since then. It is really quite weird. Can you imagine anything stranger? It’s going to be like famous all over again, Titanic all over again!”

The 3D version of the film is “extraordinary,” says Winslet, who has only seen 17 minutes of it. “I was literally like, ‘Oh my God, make it stop! Is that me? Oh my God, that’s me. Block my ears, somebody! Somebody club out my senses. Make it (expletive) stop!'” exclaims the star, waving her hands in front of her eyes. “And Leo looks so young and so skinny!” she gushes in a baby voice. The on-screen lovers, she says, have remained “closer than ever,” but “we definitely won’t” be having any sort of Titanic reunion. “No, we’ll just sit around going, ‘Can you (expletive) believe this? Isn’t this weird?'”

It’s official: We heart Winslet.

The acting heavyweights could be working together

Hollywood legend George Clooney has admitted he’d love to work with Kate Winslet on a future movie.

Speaking on the BAFTA red carpet last night The Descendants‘ star said he’s a huge fan of the British actress: “I’ve never worked with Kate Winslet and I’d love to work with her.”

But the ladies man, who’s currently dating former pro-wrestler Stacy Keibler, went on to admit that Kate’s not the only woman on his mind:

“There are a million more out there. Pretty much any actress — I love working with actresses in general.”

Director Jason Reitman is gearing up for his next project, Labor Day, which will star Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin.

The movie is based on Joyce Maynard’s book of the same name and is set on a late summer Labor Day holiday weekend in the 1980s. It opens with a divorced, depressed single mom (Winslet) who encounters a large, bleeding man (Brolin) while shopping with her 13-year-old. He asks for a ride and against their better judgment, they agree. Meanwhile, they learn that police are searching their town for an escaped convict. The story is mostly told through the eyes of 13-year-old Henry, who spends most of his time daydreaming or watching TV.

As we reported last month, there have been rumors that the movie would be filmed in the Boston area next summer and now, based on the casting call below, it looks like the rumors are true.

Chrystie Street Casting recently issued a casting call for the part of Henry, which Reitman has stressed is crucial to the movie because, “we’ve got to find someone very special.” He has also implied that he has not ruled out using an unknown actor for the role.

But, the casting call also confirms that the movie will be filming in Massachusetts in June. You can check out the complete listing below:

Chrystie Street Casting is casting Labor Day, a feature film. Chrystie Street Casting has cast the films Young Adult, Precious, Shakespeare In Love, Good Will Hunting, Cider House Rules, Pineapple Express, The Wrestler, and 200 other major films, as well as the TV series Pan Am. Jason Reitman (Juno, Up In The Air), dir.; Suzanne Smith Crowley & Jessica Kelly, casting. Shooting begins June 2012 in MA.

Seeking — Henry: boy, 13 years old (submit ages 10-14), Caucasian, a true innocent, has taken over the role of caretaker and protector to his fragile and reclusive mother Adele, an observant boy who understands his mother’s loneliness, but is too young to understand why he cannot entirely fill it, when a new man enters the picture the friend-less Henry is both exhilarated by the relationship and threatened by the prospect that he is no longer needed by his mother, LEAD; Eleanor: girl, 14 years old (submit ages 10-14), Caucasian, a skinny girl, a product of a broken home, newly moved from a big city to live with her father and is already bored with the small town entertainments, an intelligent girl, learned how to get what she wants with wit, calculations, and her newly developed sexual awareness, to Henry she is the mysterious hot girl who seems to know everything about the world that he doesn’t, LEAD; Barry: boy, 15 years old (submit ages 12-17), Caucasian, mentally challenged, could be Down’s Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy, the wheelchair-bound son of Evelyn (the lead character’s only friend), can only communicate through gurgles and mumbles, is perhaps more engaged in the world around him than his mother realizes, seeking actors who have either condition described above, supporting role.
