YMMV: Kate Winslet
Hilarious in Hindsight: When she guest starred in Ricky Gervais' Extras in 2005, she plays an bawdy, exaggerated version of herself who's starring in a Holocaust movie for Oscar Bait. Three years later, she wins an Oscar for playing a Nazi in The Reader.
When Gervais hosted the Golden Globes in 2009, he spotted her in the audience and said— on live television, mind — "I told ya, do a Holocaust movie, the awards come, didn't I?"
Hollywood Homely: For some unfathomable reason. She seems to get cast in the "frumpy/ordinary girl" role, despite being positively stunning by almost any reasonable standard.
"In a story rife with implausibilities and absurdities, perhaps the most egregious is that we're told we should accept Kate Winslet as somehow "unattractive," compared to [Jennifer Connelly's character]." - Roger Ebert in his review of Little Children.
