Joan Crawford must be rolling because Todd Haynes has apparently done a solid job in adapting Mildred Pierce into a five-hour HBO miniseries that will premiere on March 27.

In the below review, cultural critic Brendan Lemon says he liked Kate Winslet in the title role — she’s right for it, and has the time to flesh it out — and he also gives thumbs up to Brian F. O’Byrne as thoroughly modern Mildred’s first husband.

Plus Lemon sprinkles in comments about Mare Winningham, Melissa Leo and Evan Rachel Wood as the vicious daughter.

Kate Winslet thinks the public believe she is a “fat Viking” because people often regard her as bigger than she actually is.

The 35-year-old actress — who is well known for defending her curvy figure — is often complimented on how good she looks, leading to her presuming people think of her as bigger than she is.

She said: “It seems to me I look very different from how people expect me to be.

“Clearly they think I’m a great big fat Viking. My body is different through nothing other than my being older. My clothes fit me the same way they’ve fitted me for the last five, six years. And of course I was a lot more voluptuous then.”

However, she admits she is less keen to talk about her body now because its “hypocritical”.

Kate added to Britain’s Vogue magazine: “I felt I had to defend my body and took a very public stand, which I still absolutely believe in. But I’ve stopped talking about it now. And, at a certain point, it does become hypocritical.”

Despite not wanting to talk about her figure, Kate’s face is becoming more important to her and she often notices how she is gaining wrinkles.

The Revolutionary Road star explained: “I’m more aware of things like wrinkles on my face. They’re becoming much more pronounced, because that’s the muscle I use the most when acting. But it’s my face. So, whatever.”

Actress Kate Winslet goes platinum blonde for Vogue’s UK April 2011 edition.

In the intimate interview and accompanying shoot by Mario Testino, Kate Winslet talks about being single and what’s next in her career and personal life.

In Solo Act tells Jo Ellison about starting again following her split from husband Sam Mendes.

She said: “It’s empowering…

“Experiencing those moments of being alone… is a very, very weird flooring and exposing position to be in when you’re just not used to it. And it’s not just being in a relationship.

“It’s also the fact that I grew up in a family full of people.”

Kate is currently filming Carnage where she plays Nancy in the comedy alongside Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly.

Kate Winslet turned to exercise to help her get over her marriage split.

The British actress and Sam Mendes went their separate ways last year, and she admits finding it hard to deal with. Kate has ten-year-old daughter Mia with ex-husband Jim Threapleton, and seven-year-old son Joe with Sam, and the realization she would be a single mother was hard.

She knew it was a situation she had to embrace with open arms, and found working out gave her some focus.

“That’s the main reason I took it up,” she replied, when asked if exercise helped her get through her divorce. “But I do feel… I don’t know… a part of, I suppose, my way out of everything, has been really taking care of myself. I think that comes from an awareness that my children really need me, and they need me to be the healthiest version of myself that I can possibly be…,” she says having a fag and a glass of wine.

Kate has been amazed by how well she’s coped following the end of her marriage. She has spent much of her adult life in serious relationships, and is now finally happy to be on her own.

“I really am. I really am,” she told the British edition of Vogue. “I actually keep saying it out loud. Last night I went out for a drink with two friends and, as we were walking, I said, ‘God, you know, I feel so good.’ Not in a, ‘Wow! I feel so good!’ way, but just in that quiet centered way. I’m almost surprised by it. I feel well, I feel healthy. I feel clear. I feel centered.”

The 35-year-old has given herself time to grieve for her relationship with Sam, and isn’t rushing into another romance too quickly. Last year she was linked to male model Louis Dowler, but the Oscar-winning actress has hinted that relationship was not as serious as many thought.

“I do feel that I have been sifting through the debris for quite some time. And I’ve emerged the other side and I’m walking forward. Completely by myself, having done a little bit of personal healing,” she said.

Asked if she was referring to Louis, Kate smiled: “I’m not talking about waving joss sticks around, or lighting purple candles. None of that sh*t!”

Kate Winslet is ready to be “destroyed” by an acting role again, after taking time off following The Reader.

The British star played war criminal Hanna Schmitz in the 2008 film and had to endure a difficult time, often spending eight hours a day in make-up to look the part.

She went on to win a best actress Oscar for her performance, plus a Golden Globe for best supporting actress.

Kate is finally ready to fully immerse herself in a new project, admitting that she cannot function without her career.

“In the last few years, I’ve allowed myself to acknowledge the fact that I do really need my job. I need that outlet,” the 35-year-old told Vogue. “And so, not only did I feel good and ready, I felt good and ready to be destroyed by a role again.”

Kate took ten months to agree her next role after The Reader; finally accepting the title character in television series Mildred Pierce. And she says her decision to get out of the spotlight was really to refresh her mind and focus her energy once more. “I just really couldn’t focus on anything other than getting off this train that was moving at an unbelievable pace,” she explained. “I just waited until the dust had settled and I was ready to engage with — it sounds so w**ky – my creative side again.”

In mini-series Mildred Pierce the Titanic star is separated from her husband but the two do not officially end their marriage at first. Kate, who is no longer with her second husband Sam Mendes, found it easy to connect this aspect of her character with her own experiences. “There were some days when I would realize the scenes I was shooting were in tandem with things that were happening that day in my life,” Kate said. “For example, there’s a scene with Mildred’s first husband Bert. They sit down and discuss that they really do have to get divorced, and that there is a reason for it. And the day we shot that scene was the day my actual divorce came through,” she explained.
