Kate Winslet's Feeling Fondly Towards Her Family and Friends
Kate Winslet's Feeling Fondly Towards Her Family and Friends

Kate Winslet and her daughter Mia put on their coats yesterday afternoon to run errands together in NYC, but we're more excited to see another hot red carpet look from the actress at this Sunday's Golden Globes. Despite the praise Kate's receiving for her work in both The Reader and Revolutionary Road, she knows what's most important. Kate opened up to Elle UK about her life, finding an unexpected friendship with Leonardo DiCaprio, and her very happy marriage. Here's more:

  • On her life: "Yes, my life is incredible but, oh my God, I have to work at it. It's the same for any working woman. You run and you work, you run and you work, and you try not to let anything drop."
  • On her relationship with Leo: "Leo’s friendship is a major thing in my life. It’s a big relationship," says Kate. "We met when we were very young and did this incredible film [Titanic], which changed both our lives, but the best thing to come out of it was this friendship."
  • On her marriage to director Sam Mendes: "It was the last thing I expected, but it really was love at first sight," she says. "I woke up in the middle of the night after we'd met and I had this feeling in my stomach. I just knew what it was. I didn't want to stop being with him. I know categorically I'm married to the right man. I feel understood by him, completely known. And I get the enormity of what I'm saying, which is why I’m so grateful."

Whatever happens at the Globes this weekend, it seems like Kate knows how to be happy no matter the amount of professional praise.

Kate rocks my world :P Haha no seriously, she seems like a smart, cool chick. I thought it was Kate Hudson at first in those photos.

I adore her. I think Kate W. and Natalie Portman are among the few talented actresses and most normal people in the business.

Kate is an awesome actress. And I love her hat in the above pics. Unfortunately, I look weird in hats - weird head/face shape I think. :(

How can she get the enormity of what she's saying when she clearly doesn't understand what the word enormity means?

If I had a daughter I would point her tp Kate as the best of young(ish) Hollywood. She beats the pants off most of the losers on this site x

She is the epitome of what a Hollywood woman should be: beautiful, talented, articulate and smart, but with a great perspective on all of it. And I love that she and Leo are friends after all these years - it's like all my childhood "Titanic" dreams come true! :-)
