Kate Elizabeth Winslet, [[KnightFever CBE]] is a British actress, born October 5, 1975, best known for playing EnglishRose types and [[AwardSnub being snubbed]] at the [[AcademyAward Oscars]] (until 2008). She first appeared in ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'' (directed by Creator/PeterJackson), went on to star in the 1995 version of ''Film/SenseAndSensibility'', ''Film/{{Titanic}}'', ''Film/EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'', ''Little Children'', and ''Literature/TheReader''. She won her Oscar for her role in ''The Reader'' and an Emmy for playing ''MildredPierce''.

She was married to director Creator/SamMendes between 2003-2010.

----
!!Associated Tropes:

* EnglishRose: As stated above, she plays these a lot.
* MsFanservice: Respectable as she may be, one can expect Ms. Winslet to disrobe for a role more often than not.
** This gave her not only a mention [[spoiler: but all but made her the main target]] in SethMacfarlane's controversial Oscars 2013 song "We Saw Your Boobs".
* OldShame: Despite its enormous success, she does not look back on her ''Titanic'' experience fondly, noting how difficult working with James Cameron was.
** When she watched the movie for the first time in 15 years at the premiere of the 3D re-release, Kate thought her performance and accent were cringe-worthy and that it was like watching an old home video of herself.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With her ''Titanic'' co-star Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio. They said of their performance together in ''RevolutionaryRoad'' that they found it awkward to kiss each other. Her kids even know him as "Uncle Leo".
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was the producers' first choice for the role of [[DoctorWho River Song]].

----

* ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'' (1994)
* ''Film/AKidInKingArthursCourt'' (1995)
* ''Jude'' (1996)
