"Acting, and the privilege of being able to do it for a living, is so important to me. I don't turn up and just hope for the best. I really fret about it. I do my homework; I prepare myself for the experience of playing a particular character."

Kate Elizabeth Winslet, CBE is a British actress, born October 5, 1975 in Reading, England, best known for playing English Rose types, for being naked in almost every role she's done and being snubbed at the Oscars (until 2008). She first appeared in Heavenly Creatures (directed by Peter Jackson), went on to star in the 1995 version of Sense and Sensibility, Titanic (1997), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Little Children, and The Reader. She won her Oscar for her role in The Reader and an Emmy for playing Mildred Pierce.

She was married to director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2010.




Associated Tropes:

  • And Starring: She's credited this way in the opening credits of Divergent.
  • English Rose: She plays these a lot because she has the classic naturally beautiful looks of the archetype and the right accent.
  • Fake American: She's English but many of her most famous roles are American characters.
  • Ms. Fanservice: One can expect Ms. Winslet to disrobe for a role more often than not. This gave her quite a few mentions in Seth MacFarlane's controversial Oscars 2013 song "We Saw Your Boobs".
