Kate Winslet Fan

Soderbergh has amassed an impressive cast for this viral thriller including Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburne, John Hawkes, Josie Ho, Demetri Martin, Jennifer Ehle, Bryan Cranston, Elliott Gould and Sanaa Lathan and one thing I didn’t know prior to seeing this poster was that the film will be shown in IMAX theaters as well.

As for the film itself, Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.

She likes them, she really likes them!

After hitting the stage as the face of St. John’s theatrical-themed Fall 2011 campaign, Kate Winslet is opening up about her affection for the womenswear brand in a just-released behind-the-scenes video.

“St. John and the message they want to put across in their clothes is something that very much goes hand in hand with how I feel about being a woman, being a mother, and being an actress,” the British beauty asserts from the campaign’s Jersey City set.

“The clothes are cut beautifully, the fabrics are elegant, you can look extremely chic without trying too hard… These are the kind of clothes that I would wear.”

The Oscar winner, who succeeds past campaign stars like Angelina Jolie and Karen Elson, says she was drawn to the label because of its suitability for “real shapes.”

“You don’t feel as though they’re clothes that only a model would be able to wear,” the Lancôme brand ambassador says. “And obviously, I’m not a model, I don’t have a model’s body. I have a real shape, and that means a lot to me to be able to wear clothes that do embody that message that I’m constantly trying to put across, of strength and power and femininity in a real shape.”

Singling out a camel knit dress and gray drawstring-waist trousers paired with a cashmere twinset as her favorite pieces from the collection, the actress also discusses her personal style inspirations.

“Women that inspire me… it seems to change all the time,” she says. “Sometimes it goes from political figures to incredible actresses to members of my own family, but really at the moment I’m very much inspired by mothers, women who can pull it all together, do it all, and those moments when you think ‘I can’t go another day, I’m exhausted, I can’t cope,’ and you just have to keep on going. Those are the women that really inspire me, because those are the women who are setting examples to a future generation of young women, and that’s what I’m trying to do for my daughter.”

Lucky kid!

The 35-year-old actress, who’s set to star in Labor Day opposite Josh Brolin, has been nominated to receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

“What I’ve learned about acting is that it needs to be mysterious. If you overthink how a beat needs to be played, it can trip you up,” Kate was recently heard telling a popular newspaper.

“Because you’re trying to do something that is real and sincere in the moment, so that people believe you.

There are times when you just have to put yourself as deeply and firmly in a character’s shoes as you can,” she added.
