Kate Winslet, Full Time Mom

Kate Winslet is choosing to be a full time mom over making movies. We hope she doesn't retire from making films completely, but it's endearing to hear her gush about her kids. She just wants them to have as normal of a life as possible, and not think of their mom as some famous celeb. Might be a little too late for that. She said,

"It's important to me that my children don't think of their mother as this strange celebrity creature. My husband and I both want to give them as normal a life as possible. I certainly benefited from the kind of grounding my parents, who were both in the business, gave me. My daughter has seen me on the set several times but she's not particularly enamoured of her mother's world. She likes to come to visit me at work and I love it too, but it's bit boring for her. I love the fact that my kids are very normal and not the typical movie-set children. They have a whole other world and I very much want to keep it that way."

The phrase PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR, was NOT lost on him! He actually sat at OUR table with his friend and just hung out with us...when he first got there...I couldn't speak! By the end of the night, I gave him a huuuuge hug and kiss on the cheek! Believe in Magic!

I met Dave Matthews at a bar in Tahlequah when he was filming Where The Red Fern Grows 2.....I got a pic he drew, his autograph, free drinks, and to do a body shot licking his neck, drinking the tequila, the grabbing the lemon out of his mouth! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! That was a good night! Believe in Magic!

My best celeb run in was Gwyneth Paltrow. I literally ran into her as she was leaving the restaurant Babbo and I was walking in. I saw Kate Winslet in the West Village. That's where you see a lot of celebrities. The day before I saw Holly Hunter going for a walk with her husband and two kids (at least I thought they were her kids, I don't know much about her) and last night I saw the actress from Sixteen Candles, the one who played...what was her name? The popular girl? Anyway, she's dyed her hair red now so at first I thought it was Marcia Cross. 3ta - it is cool but as a New Yorker you don't really say anything to them, you just let them go on their way. If you do make a big fuss people know you're from out of town. But believe me, in my head, I'm freaking out ;)

More celebrities are hands-on parents today than they were 40 years ago when they had nannies raising their kids in lieu of themselves. Good for Kate, wise decision and I admire her for it. I think celebrity parents are terrified if they don't raise their own children they'll turn out like Paris Hilton ! Hehehehhehehehehehehehe

um fredperry, kate winslet is a hands-on mom. she's taking two years off from acting to just be with her kids. she is most definitely, NOT the kind of actress who does anything for a photo-op. Paris Hilton? Yes. Kate Winslet? Not a chance.

Yay for doing what everyone who has kids should be doing. YAY indeed. Sorry, no kudos for me. She's just being a parent. Shrug. That gets no special commendation, it should be expected. That's what's wrong with society, we're expected to genuflect at her feet for having the audacity to actually be a MOMMY to HER CHILD???? WOW!

thats *refreshing* that she isn't using a *nanny*, but actually doing the parenting herself, yay for kate!!
FredPerry1 FredPerry1 10 years
Refreshingly normal or horribly boring? Try the latter.
FredPerry1 FredPerry1 10 years
What's with the everyday wear for Kate? We all know actresses aren't everyday people... And get real, what hollywood parent doesn't have a nanny to walk their little brats around town (photo-op anyone?)
