02/01/2009  •  Posted By   •  Comments Off on Winslet and Cruz’s new found friendship

Hollywood stars Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz have struck up a surprisingly close friendship in the run-up to this year’s Oscars – despite only having met three times.

The unlikely pair, who are both competing for this year’s Best Supporting Actress gong, have been offering each other phone support daily in the countdown to the prestigious show.

And Cruz insists she and Winslet enjoy a far-from-bitter relationship, contrary to reports.

She says, “Kate and I have become very close even though we have only met three times. Everyone likes to think there’s rivalry between us but that’s not true.”

Cruz is nominated for her part in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Winslet received the nod for her role in The Reader.

The Academy Awards ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on February 22nd


01/31/2009  •  Posted By   •  Comments Off on The Beauty Within: An Exclusive Interview with Kate Winslet

When Kate Winslet rang me earlier today, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. A bit of beauty banter? Of course. But the conversation that ensued unveiled a genuine heart and sense of purpose below the striking exterior of  this  Lancome spokesmodel.

Though still in her early 30s, Kate’s sage-like qualities resounded over the phone. With all the awards she’s been winning and is nominated for, you’d think she’d be a little less grounded, not so.

So then it’s safe to assume that you’re comfortable with being a “body image hero”?

Yes, yes. Very much so.

Do you watch yourself in your films? Is it hard to see yourself on screen?

I don’t watch myself, no. I always see [my films] once when they come out, but I don’t sit and avidly watch them. I do find it a bit strange.

KATE WINSLET was so focused on accurately portraying her character in The Reader she struggled to return to day-to-day life after filming wrapped.
The actress plays a former Nazi concentration camp guard in the post-war drama, and put all her emotions into the intense role.
And Winslet, whose performance in the film won her a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe last week (11Jan09), admits it took months for her to bid farewell to the character.
She says, “It’s like I’ve escaped from a serious car accident and need to understand what has just happened.
“When I leave a character, I have to analyse the trance through which I have just passed. It can take me several months to say goodbye to them.”
And she has credited her filmmaker husband Sam Mendes with helping her back to reality: “My husband is a fantastic support. He knows when to leave me alone with a cup of tea and a pack of cigs, and, if I break down in tears, he takes me in his arms. He knows that I have to go through all that in order to ‘come back’.”
