Kate WINS a lot

By Andreas

Could Kate Winslet get any more awesome in 2011? Like, I know she was already awesome, but come on

  • First, she stars in Mildred Pierce, a project that brings five more glorious hours of Todd Haynes into the world and is more or less the TV/movie event of the year. (In my insular cultural universe, that is.)
  • Second, she joins fellow actresses Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson in pledging never to undergo plastic surgery. Quoth Winslet: “I will never give in.”
  • Third, she saves Richard Branson’s mother from a house fire. You can’t make this up.
  • After all this, she still has time to co-star in Roman Polanski’s new movie Carnage, which looks bound to be darkly hilarious—plus she gets some of the trailer’s choicest moments. Oh, and she’s part of Contagion‘s ensemble, too.

I’m usually not one to gush over celebrities; in fact, fuck celebrities. But Kate Winslet’s recent activities have proven her an exceptionally brave woman, whether facing down the forces of nature or the Hollywood status quo. Here’s to you, Kate. Never stop being awesome.

  1. She’s arguably underused in Contagion, but for the chunky sweaters and gas masks she had to wear and the bureaucrats who had to yell at her and other things she had to endure, she was still the hottest thing in that movie. And I’m biased.
