Kate Takes a Breather from Acting

Kate Winslet looked fabulous on the red carpet this weekend for her new film Little Children, but this will be the last time we see her premiering a new movie for a while. She's decided to take a break from making films to concentrate on raising her kids for a while. It turns out the role in Little Children was kinda the reason behind her decision to take a little breather. Here's more:

"It was very trying to play a mother who basically couldn't feel close to or look after the needs of her child," says Kate. "It was disturbing to put myself into that woman's head and it made me all the more aware of my own responsibilities as a mother. It was such a cathartic experience to portray somebody who can't cope with her life that it reminded me how much I need my own children. That's why I've decided to take a year off to be with the kids and watch them grow and just enjoy the feeling of being very motherly."

We'll miss Kate, but think it's so cool she's taking time for her kids. Lots more pics of Kate looking lovely so

I have a lot of respect for her. Good actress, low profile, down-to-earth. Totally the opposite of Gwyneth "I'm too good for you" Buttrow.
