Kate Winslet got the verbal equivalent of a French kiss at the “37th Annual CÃ©sar Film Awards”.
The 36-year-old Mildred Pierce star was presented with an Honorary CÃ©sar award (the French equivalent of the Oscars) by French filmmaker Michel Gondry, who directed her in the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.
Appropriately dressed in a gold sequined dress by Van Cleef & Arpels, Winslet laughed as Gondry serenaded her with a sexy poem â€” read in French with sometimes nonsensical English translation.
“My dear Kate, it is never too late to win a CÃ©sar, because Kate wins late,” he began. “It’s hard work to make you come.”
To this, Winslet burst out laughing, before Gondry went on to claim that getting access to the actress’ “bottom” was a “no go.”
“In conclusion, your cleavage is generous,” he said. “Can your boobs touch my illusion… brilliant fortress of common desire.”
Winslet then took the podium and said with a sigh, “All of those comments about my cleavage!”
After thanking the crowd for honoring her with the award, she referred back to her naughty valentine.
“I’m thankful to Michel Gondry,” she said, “for talking about my boobs and my bottom on live French television.”
Winslet evidently could not get over Gondry’s cheekiness. As she walked off the stage with the director to cheers from he audience, she could be heard saying one final time, “I can’t believe you talked about my boobs and my butt!”
