When Kate Winslet rang me earlier today, I wasnâ€™t quite sure what to expect. A bit of beauty banter? Of course. But the conversation that ensued unveiled a genuine heart and sense of purpose below the striking exterior ofÂ thisÂ Lancome spokesmodel.
Though still in her early 30s, Kateâ€™s sage-like qualities resounded over the phone. With all the awards sheâ€™s been winning and is nominated for, youâ€™d think sheâ€™d be a little less grounded, not so.
So then itâ€™s safe to assume that youâ€™re comfortable with being a â€œbody image heroâ€?
Yes, yes. Very much so.
Do you watch yourself in your films? Is it hard to see yourself on screen?
I donâ€™t watch myself, no. I always see [my films] once when they come out, but I donâ€™t sit and avidly watch them. I do find it a bit strange.
