Kate Winslet has a personal connection to charitable causes — because her family had to fall back on the generosity of others after her father “lost his foot” in an accident.

The Titanic star gives a large portion of her film wages to her chosen causes and reveals it’s something she has always felt compelled to do after being on the other side of hand-outs as a child.

She tells Ladies’ Home Journal magazine, “My father… lost his foot in an accident when I was young.

“It was awful, it caused all sorts of problems, both physically and psychologically — and for a while my family was supported by a charitable trust. So I understand on a very personal level what a charitable organization can do.”

Kate Winslet may have won a Golden Globe this month, but the actress’ most cherished role is her real life one as a mother.

Her children Joe, 7, and Mia, 11, are never far away from her, it seems, although Winslet says that her parents, Roger and Sally, sometimes step in to help out with childcare.

While talking about balancing work and children, the actress said, “you just do it”.

“I just figure it out and pull it off. But I will say this: I have never left my children to go away to work. I have always been able to figure out a schedule where I am shooting during part of their school holidays,” the Daily Express quoted her as saying.

“I am a mother… That is what I do. Just before I came here today I said out loud‚ ‘OK, famous person hat on.’

“This is playing a completely different role. I always find these occasions thrilling but it is so very far removed from my own life,” she said.

Denying last week’s rumors, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Kate Winslet will not be in Charlie Kaufman’s musical media satire Frank Or Francis, after producers have failed to meet Winslet’s guarantee of a minimum three awards nominations — and the good ones, not just the Indie Spirit Awards or something. Or maybe Winslet was just never attached, despite those reports to the contrary. At least we got Catherine Keener right, who’s now been joined by the additions of Elizabeth Banks and Paul Reubens, a combination that more than equals one Kate Winslet and possibly even part of a second Kate Winslet, such as a Kate Winslet haunch.

Kate Winslet no longer worries about her career now she has gotten older.

Kate Winslet doesn’t worry about her career now she is in her 30s.

The 36-year-old actress — who has been married twice before — used to let her “ups and downs” affect how she felt about herself, but has now learnt to let go of things she is not happy with.

She said: “I’m not going to get upset the way I used to. Once you’re in your 30s you learn not to panic or stress too much about work.

“You don’t let the ups and downs of your career affect your sense of self-worth or personal well-being. That’s probably the greatest lesson I’ve learnt from all of this.”

The Oscar-winning star — who will soon be seen in cinemas in Roman Polanski’s new movie Carnage alongside Jodie Foster — is particularly happy with the direction her career is taking at present.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: “I’m very happy and I can’t complain. I’ve had the chance to work on very good projects of late and work with very talented directors. I hope things continue that way.”

The actress joins Jack Black, Nicolas Cage and Kate Winslet in the musical satire about Hollywood.

Elizabeth Banks, who stars in this weekend’s Man On A Ledge with Sam Worthington, has joined the star-studded cast of Frank Or Francis, Charlie Kaufman’s musical satire about Hollywood.

Banks joins a roll call that includes Jack Black, Nicolas Cage, Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Kevin Kline in a story that follows a battle of wills between Frank, an intellectual film director (Carell) and Francis, an online blogger (Black) who still lives at home and who delights in attacking the other man’s films.

Cage plays an actor who is famous for his high-concept films while Kline will play the director of the world’s top-grossing movie as well as that character’s brother who turns into an animatronic head.

Banks will play a highly-regarded actress making formulaic comedy bombs who is having an affair with Carell’s Frank.

Anthony Bregman of A Likely Story is producing.
