Kate Elizabeth Winslet, [[KnightFever CBE]] is a British actress, born October 5, 1975, best known for playing EnglishRose types, for being naked in almost every role she's done 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:
* AndStarring: She's credited this way in the opening credits of ''Literature/{{Divergent}}''.
* EnglishRose: As stated above, she plays these a lot because she has the classic naturally beautiful looks.
* 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.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was the producers' first choice for the role of River Song from ''Series/DoctorWho''.
