10 Reasons to Love Kate Winslet ...

It’s time to celebrate Mrs. Winslet and show her how well deserved her Oscar win for**Best Actress** is. Here are 10 reasons to love her with or without all the awards.

10. She Isn’t Afraid to Play a Wide Range of Characters…

(Your reaction) Thank you!

We have seen Winslet as a strong but confused young lady in “Titanic”, as a lost memory from her boyfriend’s head in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, as a wife and mother who wanted more than her ordinary life in “Revolutionary Road”, and as a lover who disappears only to be found years later on trial defending herself in “The Reader”.

I have seen the first three movies and plan to see them all being the Winslet fan that I am. Each one of her characters is someone we can relate **to and I feel that Winslet gives you that opportunity through her **passion for acting. Which of these movies or other movies of Winslet’s have you seen?

9. She Doesn’t Hog the Spotlight…

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Except for award season and movie premieres we don’t hear much about Winslet’s life or see her hogging the camera like Madonnaor Paris Hilton. Winslet was married for three years to assistant director **Jim Threapleton. The couple had a daughter in 2000 named Mia Honey. A few years after her divorce Winslet married director Sam Mendes; they have a son named Joe Alfie who was born in December of 2003. And instead of going to the premiere of Titanic in 1997, she was attending a funeral for her then boyfriend **Stephen Tredre, who sadly died of bone cancer. What other interesting facts do you know about Winslet?

8. She’s Not an Air-brushed Kind of Girl…

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Winslet has fought rumors and magazines about having weight **issues and being **air-brushed on certain covers. In 2007 she won a lawsuit against Grazia Magazine after they had announced that she was on a diet. And now there are rumors that her beautiful cover on Vanity Fair was air-brushed and that maybe Winslet isn’t really that sexy after all. However, Winslet fired back in Instyle magazine,

If I'm looking good at the moment, just let me look good already! Don't have a go at me just because I'm not the fat person you always thought I was going to be," Winslet said.

7. She Keeps Her Family Close…

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Winslet and her husband Mendes are very much in love and you can see it in their eyes when they look at each other. He was so proud of her when she won her first Oscar for Best Actress last month. And though her daughter has another father, Winslet isn’t afraid of sharing both families. She still keeps in contact with Threapleton; who has been there to help her pick up their daughter Mia and her son Joe from school. It can be difficult for two families to blend, I know that myself coming from a divorced household. I think it’s great that Winslet makes it easier for her kids by including everyone in their day to day activities.

6. She Always Looks Classy...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

She may be one to show off some skin on film, but when it comes to movie premieres and award shows Winslet always stays classy. She is a sexy woman, wife, and mother. And she knows how to pull it all together in beautiful dresses from her blue Narciso Rodriguez gown at the SAG awards to her Yves St. Laurent gown at the Academy Awards. I have to say that the Rodriguez gown showed off every sexy curve of Winslet’s body, but the Laurent gown was definitely Oscar worthy.

5. She Looks Good without Trying...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Whether it’s picking up her kids, walking around NYC, or just going to the airport, Winslet looks good and she probably isn’t even trying. Sometimes she wears flip-flops and jeans or sneakers with a sweater and jeans. But whatever Winslet wears or doesn’t wear we love her all the same for her classy yet comfortable style. I applaud her for being comfortable but not trashy and classy but not sleazy. Many actresses try too hard to be noticed, and Winslet is not one of them.

4. 2009 is the Year of Kate...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Although Titanic wasn’t her first film it was a big break for her and it brought Winslet’s name into our homes. Her first Oscar nomination began with her supporting role in Jane Austen's “Sense and Sensibility” in 1996. This year she took home her first Oscar win and 6th nomination for her lead role in “The Reader” for which she also won a Golden Globe, and BAFTAand SAGawards. Winslet has also won another Golden Globe for “Revolutionary Road”. She is a wonderful actress and deserves every nomination and every win. And I can only imagine future winning roles for her.

3. She Has Rekindled Her Love Affair with Leonardo DiCaprio...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you thought their love scene in Titanic was steamy and haven’t seen their new movie… well then maybe you should get yourself to a theater to see “Revolutionary Road”. If you have seen the movie, you know the feeling you got as you watched DiCaprio and Winslet on screen. In the end their relationship was messy, but he loved her and it was hot. What was your reaction to their onscreen passion?

2. She Made a Beautiful Acceptance Speech...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

During the Oscars I noticed that some of the winners forgot to mention their loved ones in their speeches. Winslet did not. When she got up to accept her award she hugged and kissed her husband right away. She then thanked him and their children and showed how much of a loving mother she truly is.

And I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children who let me do what I love and who love me just the way that I am,” Kate cried.

1. She Knows Who She is...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Winslet doesn’t forget where she came from. She thanked her parents in her Oscar speech as well and told her dad to whistle from the audience! Winslet even brought him along to an after party **and introduced him to Elvis Costello. She enjoys what she does and who she is to her fans, but doesn’t take it too far. She’s an actress and that is part of the job she does, but don’t ever say she’s a **movie star.

It's very much a hat that you wear, and as soon as the event's over, the hat comes off. I'm back to being Mummy, and that's my priority," Kate said.
