A showdown between two kids: about eleven, in a local playground. Swollen lips, broken teeth… Now the parents of the “victim” have invited the parents of the “bully” to their apartment to sort if out. Cordial banter gradually develops a razor-sharp edge as all four parents reveal their laughable contradictions and grotesque prejudices. None of them will escape the ensuing carnage. Carnage, which runs at 79 minutes since it plays out in real time, is directed by Roman Polanski, it’s based on Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning play God Of Carnage. The two sets of parents in question are portrayed by Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz. The film is set for release December 16th.

What was it about Carnage that sparked your interest? You’ve worked on a number of films based around family.

Kate Winslet: I suppose when you are I parent, and you come from a very big, very close family like I do, I think it’s just apart of your emotional makeup. I suppose I have found myself subconsciously drawn to these types of stories that include everybody, they include every family member, they include the complexities of a family dynamic, especially involving children. Being a parent myself I’m familiar with school playground politics and how complex that can be — and sometimes how ridiculous that can be, and funny. So when Roman approached me about being involved in God Of Carnage, first of all when Roman Polanski asks you to join him on any project you really don’t say no. The script was so extraordinary, I had seen the play in New York so I was already very much a fan of the piece. I just felt extremely fortunate to be included.

Taking a break from her acting duties, the British beauty hosted a press conference held by Swiss luxury watchmaker Longines in Shanghai. Kate is currently the company’s Ambassador of Elegance.

Meanwhile, Kate has collaborated with experts at make-up giant Lancôme to create a special cosmetics collection for charity.

The Oscar-winning actress, who is a spokesmodel for the brand, has worked closely with the company to come up with a range of lipsticks, blushers and nail polishes for its 2011 winter range.

Lancôme bosses have promised to donate $200,000 of profits raised from sales to The Golden Hat Foundation, a non-profit organization set up by the Titanic star last year to raise awareness of autism.

Kate says, “Lancôme’s instant offer of support was a huge display of confidence and generosity. I knew it would open many doors.”

The range will be on sale until December.

Rocknroll new romance for Kate Winslet!

The Oscar winning actress, 35, is dating Richard Branson’s nephew Ned Abel Smith — a.k.a. Ned Rocknroll — a source confirms to Us Weekly.

The duo arrived together at last Tuesday’s memorial service for Ted Branson (Richard Branson’s father) at the Royal Geographical Society in London. The Daily Mail reports that Ned, 33, legally changed his name to “Ned Rocknroll” several years back, and recently separated from his wife Eliza, the daughter of a British viscount.

“Ned is really happy with Kate,” the source tells Us, adding that the couple are currently spending a romantic weekend in the English countryside. Mildred Pierce star Winslet is “mature and has it all together,” the source explains. “[Ned] feels he can learn so much from her. It’s sexy — a boy toy situation!”

An old friend of the Branson family, Winslet was famously a guest on Richard Branson’s private Necker Island in late August when the house she was staying in caught fire; Winslet ended up carrying Eve, Branson’s elderly mother, out of the burning building.

Winslet wasn’t a solo visitor during her momentous Necker Island stay. In addition to her kids Mia, 10, and Joe, 7, the star’s fellow guest was Louis Dowler, her on-and-off model beau.

No word yet on exactly when Winslet and Dowler parted ways.
