In the interview, the Academy Award Best-Actress winner opens up about her famous nude scenes in The Reader, on her reputation, and her knickers. Here are some highlights from the interview:
Kate on her nude scene from The Reader:
"If people are noticing my boobs in a movie and saying they do what real boobs do, then that's great." / "I'll be 34 in October. I can't keep getting away with it. There was so much of it in The Reader because the story required it, but people have seen enough of my bum and my boobs. I have to put them back."
On having a good reputation:
"When everyone was out getting plastered, I didn't do all of that. I was working. I was doing life. Now that I look back, I feel very lucky. I've never taken drugs, never been offered cocaine."
Kate on defusing the glamour myth:
"Our knickers will still go up our ass at the most inappropriate moment. And we'll still want to flick them out, but you can't because someone is going to catch you." So what does one do? "Oh, I run behind pillars and things."
Kate on romance in marriage:
“Romance to me is spontaneity,” Winslet insists. “It’s not diamond earrings; it’s a bunch of daffodils that’s freshly picked from the field. Or just a little thing like Sam calling me at three in the afternoon, saying, ‘I’m coming home now. I’m done for the day.’ It’s romantic because he just thought, ‘I’ll go home. I want to be with Kate and the kids.’ “
