Kate Winslet is one of those rare movie stars to take on her 45th birthday superbly. When asked not to show her belly in a sex scene and to edit the poster for the show, she said no.
She has demonstrated it several times, Kate Winslet is committed to authenticity, face and off camera. And she just proved it again by pleading for her character, Mare Sheehan in Mare of Easttown, to look like an active and tired woman. A middle-aged woman anchored in the real world, including with her “a little paunchy belly“says the actress in the columns of New York Times.
So when director Craig Zobel told him he could hide his stomach during the sex scene with Guy Pearce, Winslet immediately replied: “Do not even try !“The Oscar winner for The Reader also returned two promotional posters from the series because they were too retouched.
They said to me, “Kate, you can’t do that” and I said to them: “Guys, I know very well how many wrinkles I have at the corners of my eyes, please put them back. . “
Similar reaction when seeing a first version of the series in which her naturally luminous skin appears a little too beautiful. “We adjusted the light just so it wouldn’t look so pretty“she told them back.
Look, I play a middle-aged woman – I’ll be 46 in October – I guess that’s why people have embraced this character in this same way, because there’s clearly no no filters. She is a perfectly functional and imperfect woman, with a body and a face that moves in a way that represents her age, her life and where she came from. I think we are missing a bit.
Through these repeated statements, Kate Winslet is one of the spearheads of body positive, this movement that encourages women who do not correspond to current beauty standards to love themselves as they are and who still have trouble breaking through. Hollywood.
