Kate Winslet has “set the bar” in her career and now she wants to work at maintaining it.
The Hollywood actress, who is renowned for her roles in movies such as Titanic and The Reader, doesn’t want to get complacent when it comes to her successful movie career.
The 35-year-old, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Hanna Schmitz in 2008 movie The Reader, insists there’s always things left to accomplish.
“I set the bar, and the bar is how good my work is, so it’s still about working hard, reading and making sure I bring something to the character that is true and sincere,” she said in an interview with Total Film.
The blonde beauty â€” who has two children Mia, ten, and seven-year-old Joe â€” feels lucky that she is still a major player in the film industry.
Kate says despite her determined nature, she doesn’t encourage herself to continually “top” her previous achievements.
“I’m fortunate that I’m still being invited along for the ride by great people,” she explained. “Awards and nominations are extraordinary, but at the same time it would be a mistake to ever think, ‘Oh God, I’ve got to top that.'”
