Kate Winslet, villain
Kate Winslet is currently shooting Divergent playing Jeanine Matthews, her first role in her acclaimed career as a proper villain though you could argue that her character, Hanna, in The Reader might be much more morally sinister. Kate calls it playing a “baddie”, and she decided to maintain her distance from the cast just to make them fear her that much more. In a new interview with USA Today, she said she walked around all day with a c-nt face on on set:
"I wanted to break it and say, 'It's OK, I'm really fun. I promise.' But I thought, just for today, I'd let them think that I am a complete bitch."
As you know, Kate is pregnant right now with a Rocknroll baby. I am writing this as Laura sits across from me scowling about the Rocknroll baby. Does that Rocknroll father have a job, I asked her? She very correctly pointed out that any dude who can change his name from Smith to Rocknroll probably doesn’t have to work.
By the way, they’ve made it sound here that Kate’s not overly precious about working while carrying a baby. She even offered to do her own stunts. Here she is running errands in Sussex yesterday. Click here to read the full article in USA Today.
