She may be an Oscar-winning actress with a a shiny new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a a Lancôme contract, but at home, Kate Winslet is just another mom with a baby and a new marriage to Ned Rocknroll.
“It’s a very strange place to be,” the 38-year-old star mused about her double life to the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar. “Because the truth is, I’m not famous until I am in those moments. Those are the times when I am suddenly famous. My real life is a very real life. And I know I say this all the time, but it’s really true. Thank God.”
Of her new husband, the father of 5-month old Bear Blaze, Winslet said, “Nobody knows him—it’s brilliant. They like to think they know him. They like to be judgmental because of his name and everything, but it’s fabulous because no one knows anything about him.”
Winslet is also looking forward to turning 40 next year.
“I’m quite excited about it, actually,” she told Harper’s. “I really enjoy getting older. You just don’t worry as much.”
Careerwise, she’s ready to shift into high gear.
“It’s time to get back,” the “Divergent” star said. “Back to the ‘I don’t f*** around,’ back to the KW basics of take some serious risks, put yourself out there. And just really push it.”
