Oscar winner Kate Winslet has defended her right to cry when accepting film awards.
Kate Winslet has said she ‘doesn’t care’ about the criticism she has received in the press for being over-emotional when accepting awards. Though she was tear-free when she collected the Best Actress award at Sunday’s Oscars she was criticised heavily for crying earlier this year when collecting the same honour at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards but she’s insisted she has no plans to change. “I really don’t care and quite frankly, I’m sad that my country can’t be pleased with the successes of their own kind, as the US does,” she told the Daily Telegraph. “I got through it, I didn’t blub, I remembered everybody and hopefully the Brits won’t be able to be mean to me.”
