She has two young children of her own so Kate Winslet knows all about the joys of story time.

So yesterday, July 24, she took time out of her busy schedule to read to children at a literary festival.

Wearing a pair of black shorts and wellingtons, the Oscar-winning actress chose the storybook “Mr. Gum” to delight a group of young children at the Port Eliot Festival in St. Germans, Cornwall.

The “Mr. Gum” books are set in the fictitious town of Lamonic Bibber and feature nine-year-old Polly her dog Jake and grumpy Mr Gum.

And the 35-year-old actress appeared to enjoying the experience as much as the children as she brought the story to life and pulled a series of faces while bringing the book to life for the enthralled audience.

The Port Eliot festival is a garden party that combines “everything from slam poetry to rock’n’roll”.

Miss Winslet used to have a house close to the north Cornish coast and is understood to be extremely fond of the county and regularly spend time there on holiday.

The actress is thought to have been taking a break in Cornwall after filming two films Movie 43 and Carnage, which was written and directed by Roman Polanski.

The Port Eliot Festival which includes music, cabaret, comedians and authors also featured writers, Hanif Kureishi and Jay McInerney and rock groups such as the Jim Jones Revue.

In what I’d call a Titanic u-turn, Kate Winslet has secretly rekindled her relationship with model Louis Dowler.

The couple, both 35, dated for four months last year but split when Kate reportedly decided that she wanted to be alone.

Now relatives of the easy-on-the-eye model have confirmed the pair are back together, after they spent a romantic holiday meeting his family in Cornwall this week.

Speaking from his home in the seaside village of Lelant, near St Ives, Louis’ grandfather Jack Pearce said: “They are on holiday down here.

“He brought Kate round yesterday and it is the first time I have met her.

“We went for a pub lunch. She is a very attractive girl. She was polite and very friendly. They didn’t talk to me much about their personal life but they seemed very much together.”

Louis grew up in Penzance before becoming a professional stud model and moving to London, where he has worked for Burberry and Louis Vuitton.

He was spotted on Wednesday taking Kate along the town’s historic Chapel street. They later visited Marks & Spencer and then the local fish market. Which would have been very romantic.

His sister Natasha, who works in Specsavers in the port town, said yesterday: “They were only on holiday down here for a short while. He brought her down to meet me for lunch last Wednesday and she was lovely.”

Kate and Louis have been spotted together in New York and Edinburgh in the past two months, fueling rumors they’d rekindled their relationship.

Attempting to woo Kate back, he took her on date nights to places like London club Mahiki. No mention of a fish market though. He clearly saved the best ’til last…

Soderbergh has amassed an impressive cast for this viral thriller including Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, John Hawkes, Josie Ho, Demetri Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Bryan Cranston, Elliott Gould and Sanaa Lathan and one thing I didn’t know prior to seeing this poster was that the film will be shown in IMAX theaters as well.

As for the film itself, Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

She likes them, she really likes them!

After hitting the stage as the face of St. John’s theatrical-themed Fall 2011 campaign, Kate Winslet is opening up about her affection for the womenswear brand in a just-released behind-the-scenes video.

“St. John and the message they want to put across in their clothes is something that very much goes hand in hand with how I feel about being a woman, being a mother, and being an actress,” the British beauty asserts from the campaign’s Jersey City set.

“The clothes are cut beautifully, the fabrics are elegant, you can look extremely chic without trying too hard… These are the kind of clothes that I would wear.”

The Oscar winner, who succeeds past campaign stars like Angelina Jolie and Karen Elson, says she was drawn to the label because of its suitability for “real shapes.”

“You don’t feel as though they’re clothes that only a model would be able to wear,” the Lancôme brand ambassador says. “And obviously, I’m not a model, I don’t have a model’s body. I have a real shape, and that means a lot to me to be able to wear clothes that do embody that message that I’m constantly trying to put across, of strength and power and femininity in a real shape.”

Singling out a camel knit dress and gray drawstring-waist trousers paired with a cashmere twinset as her favorite pieces from the collection, the actress also discusses her personal style inspirations.

“Women that inspire me… it seems to change all the time,” she says. “Sometimes it goes from political figures to incredible actresses to members of my own family, but really at the moment I’m very much inspired by mothers, women who can pull it all together, do it all, and those moments when you think ‘I can’t go another day, I’m exhausted, I can’t cope,’ and you just have to keep on going. Those are the women that really inspire me, because those are the women who are setting examples to a future generation of young women, and that’s what I’m trying to do for my daughter.”

Lucky kid!
