Kate Winslet Takes Over Nicole Kidman's Role
After confirming her pregnancy, Nicole Kidman has stepped down from her role in "The Reader" and Kate Winslet has swooped it back up. Kate was originally offered the role, but turned it down due to scheduling conflicts with Revolutionary Road.
When Nicole announced her pregnancy and pulled out of the role, Winslet retook it. The film is about an affair between a teenage boy and an older woman in post-WWII Germany.
It's based on German author Bernhard Schlink's bestselling 1995 novel and it made the list for Oprah's Book Club. Now everyone's happy. Kate's got her role back, and Nicole has a bun in the oven.
