A heroine’s return!

Today Kate Winslet toured the charred-out remains of Sir Richard Branson’s once-grand, $70 million estate on Necker Island in the Caribbean. Amid the devastation, the Oscar-winner, 35, posed for photos with the British billionaire, 61, and his mother, Eve. (Branson posed with “Brutus,” the family tortoise.)

Winslet, along with kids Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, and her model beau Louis Dowler, was staying at Branson’s home when it caught fire Monday morning after being struck by lightning. And the Mildred Pierce actress didn’t just ensure the safety of her kids and her man — she carried Eve Branson, 90, out of the inferno.

“Many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90-year mum out of the main house to safety,” Branson blogged earlier this week. (Branson himself was staying with his wife and son at another property 100 yards away when the fire struck.)

Although Branson’s home was completely destroyed, everyone staying at the house — around 20, he said v thankfully escaped unharmed.

“We will rebuild the house as soon as we can,” the Virgin Group CEO wrote. “Currently just huddled up with family and friends in the continuing tropical storm realizing what really matters in life.”

Kate Winslet to the rescue!

Sir Richard Branson’s multi-million dollar Caribbean estate was destroyed by a fire early Monday but his Oscar winning guest saved the billionaire’s mother’s life!

“Many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year mum out of the main house to safety wondering when a Director was going to shout CUT!” Branson profusely thanked his houseguest on his blog today.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Winslet, her boyfriend and her family were staying in the lavish eight-bedroom Great House, along with Branson’s daughter Holly and her friends when disaster struck.

Thankfully, all 20 people escaped unharmed from the fire though.

Sharing shocking photos of his retreat burning, Branson said the fire brokeout before dawn when lighting from a tropical storm hit the home on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands.

“The main house is destroyed and the fire is not yet completely out. My office was based in the house and I have lost thousands of photographs and my note books which is very sad. But all family and friends are well — which in the end is all that really matters,” The Virgin boss said on his blog.

“It’s very much the Dunkirk spirit here. We will rebuild the house as soon as we can. We have a wonderful staff here and we want them to stay in work. We’ll all stay here. There’s a lot of damage but we’ll create something even more special out of the ruins. Thanks again for all the kind messages you have sent — they mean a lot. Currently just huddled up with family and friends in the continuing tropical storm realizing what really matters in life.”

Kate Winslet’s tropical vacation turned terrifying early Monday morning when a fire broke out at Richard Branson’s Caribbean home where she and her family were staying.

The actress, 35, her boyfriend, Louis Dowler, and her children Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, escaped, along with 16 other guests from the eight-bedroom Great House on Necker, Branson’s private island in the British Virgin Islands.

Branson told the AP that the fire broke out around 4 a.m. during a tropical storm. His son Sam, 25, helped guests evacuate, and the house was “completely destroyed” by the fire.

The cause of the inferno is still under investigation, but lightning is likely to blame.

Winslet’s rep confirmed that the actress was unharmed.

Following her modeling gigs for the beauty brand’s L’Absolu Rouge lipstick and Trésor fragrance, the Hollywood actress is putting her relationship with Lancôme to a charitable use.

In aid of her charity, the Golden Hat Foundation, which helps improve the lives of autistic children, Winslet is readying a small collection — including L’Absolu Rouge, Mini Le Vernis Nail Polish, and a makeup palette — for a holiday season launch.

Lancôme has said it will be donating at least 150,000 euros from the collection’s sales to The Golden Hat Foundation, whose logo will be embossed in gold onto the products and packaging.

In related news, Winslet announced this week that she had set up the British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League along with personal friends and fellow actresses Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to support natural beauty in Hollywood.
