Oscar winner Kate Winslet admitted last Tuesday to a “secret love affair” with Michelle Williams, star of Blue Valentine.
Winslet told this a pretty highfalutin crowd at the Tribeca Grand Hotel screening room, for a showing of Blue Valentine and a chance to meet Williamsâ€“just returned from the UK, and director Derek Cianfrance.
In the crowd were people like big deal actress Hope Davis, Judd Hirsch, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham, and Kim Cattrall.
Winslet confessed to the assembled crowd that she’d only met Williams once and didn’t know her well at all. “But we have a secret relationship,” Winslet said. “I dream about her.” She spoke emotionally, saying that from Williams’ roles she felt she knew her and they had a bond. It was such a lovely speech that Williams started to cry.
“From a distance, I feel as though I’ve actually been having a secret love affair with Michelle,” said Winslet as she introduced the movie. “She and I are quite intimate in my fantasy friendship built on admiration and respect.” She added, “I’m talking about her acting, of course.”
