My how you’ve aged! Kate Winslet transforms into old woman for new film

Kate Winslet has always been celebrated for her refusal to conform to Hollywood stereotypes.

And at first glance, Kate appeared to have taken her boycott too far as she was pictured looking extremely haggard and aged.

But the actress hasn’t totally abandoned her beauty regime and was simply in costume her latest film role.

Kate, 32, is starring alongside Ralph Fiennes in Stephen Daldry’s post-world war II drama, The Reader, based on the novel by Bernhard Schlink.

The film, currently being shot on location in Germany, sees Kate playing an older woman involved with a young man.

  1. My goodness, Kate Winslet, how fantastic of an actress she is! This is really her, at the top of her game, and at the pinnacle of achievement in her career as an actress. Goodness, what a class act. She has grown with such an inspirational and hard-working spirit; and I truly hope she enjoys playing the character of Hanna Schmitz!
