She described Ginny as permanently dissatisfied and uneasy, and playing her proved difficult for Winslet, who suffered from anxiety. Manohla Dargis of The New York Times disliked Allen’s writing but credited Winslet for filling her “shabby character with feverish life”. When asked about her decision to work with Allen despite an allegation of child sexual abuse against him, Winslet chose not to comment on Allen’s personal life but said she was pleased with the collaboration.

Kate Elizabeth Winslet CBE (born 5 October 1975) is an English actress. She is particularly known for her work in period dramas, and is often drawn to portraying angst-ridden women. Winslet is the recipient of various accolades, including three British Academy Film Awards, and is among the few performers to have won Academy, Emmy, and Grammy Awards.

In 1991, within two weeks of finishing her GCSE examinations, Winslet made her screen debut as one of the main cast members of the BBC science fiction television series Dark Season. Her part was that of Reet, a schoolgirl who helps her classmates fight against a sinister man distributing free computers to her school. She did not earn much from the job, and at 16, a lack of funds forced Winslet to leave Redroofs. To support herself, she worked at a delicatessen. In 1992, she had a small part in the television film Anglo-Saxon Attitudes, an adaptation of Angus Wilson’s satirical novel. Winslet, who weighed 13 stone 3 pounds (84 kg; 185 lb) at the time, played the daughter of an obese woman in it. While filming, an off-hand comment from the director Diarmuid Lawrence about the likeness between her and the actress who played her mother prompted Winslet to lose weight. She next took on the role of the young daughter of a bankrupt middle-aged man (played by Ray Winstone) in the television sitcom Get Back (1992–93). She also had a guest role in a 1993 episode of the medical drama series Casualty.

Winslet was among 175 girls to audition for Peter Jackson’s psychological drama Heavenly Creatures (1994), and was cast after impressing Jackson with the intensity she brought to her part. The New Zealand-based production is based on the Parker–Hulme murder case of 1954, in which Winslet played Juliet Hulme, a teenager who assists her friend, Pauline Parker (played by Melanie Lynskey), in the murder of Pauline’s mother. She prepared for the part by reading the transcripts of the girls’ murder trial, their letters and diaries, and interacted with their acquaintances. She has said that she learnt tremendously from the job. Jackson filmed in the real murder locations, and the experience left Winslet traumatised. She found it difficult to detach herself from her character, and said that after returning home, she often cried. The film was a critical breakthrough for Winslet; The Washington Post writer Desson Thomson called her “a bright-eyed ball of fire, lighting up every scene she’s in”. Winslet recorded “Juliet’s Aria” for the film’s soundtrack. Also that year, she appeared as Geraldine Barclay, a prospective secretary, in the Royal Exchange Theatre production of Joe Orton’s farce What the Butler Saw.

How old was Kate Winslet when she made Titanic?

Winslet, 46, and DiCaprio, 47, have known each other since they were in their early twenties and launched into mega stardom by “Titanic.” “I turned 21 on that shoot, and Leo turned 22,” she told The Guardian. DiCaprio was famously miserable during the intensive production of the film.

Is Kate Winslet still married?

It would appear that Kate Winslet and Edward Abel Smith are still married and still in love. Winslet gushed about her husband as recently as September 2021, in the Emmy press room right after her Emmy win for Mare of Easttown.

How old was Rose when the Titanic sank?

However, the ship sunk on April 15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg. In Titanic, Rose is 17 years old and is a first-class passenger along with her mother Ruth (Frances Fisher) and her fiancé Cal Hockley (Billy Zane). Jack is an artist and a third-class passenger who won a ticket to board the ship in a poker match.

While filming Dark Season, Winslet, aged 15, began a romantic relationship with the actor-writer Stephen Tredre, then aged 28. She considered him to be a major influence in her life and lived with him in London. The couple separated in 1995, but they remained close until he died of bone cancer two years later. Winslet missed the premiere of Titanic to attend his funeral. In a 2008 interview, she said she has never got over his death.

While promoting Heavenly Creatures in Los Angeles, Winslet auditioned for the minor part of Lucy Steele for a 1995 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Sense and Sensibility, starring and written by Emma Thompson. Impressed by her reading, Thompson cast her for the much larger part of the recklessly romantic teenager Marianne Dashwood. The director Ang Lee wanted Winslet to play the part with grace and restraint—aspects that he felt were missing from her performance in Heavenly Creatures—and thus asked her to practice tai chi, read gothic literature, and learn to play the piano. David Parkinson of the Radio Times found Winslet to be a standout among the ensemble cast, and Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle took note of how well she had portrayed her character’s growth and maturity. The film grossed over US$134 million worldwide. She won the Screen Actors Guild and British Academy Film Award for Best Supporting Actress, and received nominations for the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award in the same category. Also in 1995, Winslet featured in the poorly received Disney film A Kid in King Arthur’s Court.

Winslet had roles in two period dramas of 1996—Jude and Hamlet. As with her Heavenly Creatures part, Winslet’s roles in these films were those of women with a “mad edge”. In Michael Winterbottom’s Jude, based on the novel Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy, she played Sue Bridehead, a young woman with suffragette leanings who falls in love with her cousin, Jude (played by Christopher Eccleston). Roger Ebert believed the part allowed Winslet to display her acting range, and praised her for the defiance she brought to the role. After unsuccessfully auditioning for Kenneth Branagh’s 1994 film Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Winslet was cast for the part of Ophelia, the doomed lover of the title character, in Branagh’s adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet. Winslet, at 20 years old, was intimidated by the experience of performing Shakespeare with established actors such as Branagh and Julie Christie, saying the job required a level of intellect that she thought she did not possess. Mike Jeffries of Empire believed she had played the part “well beyond her years”. Despite the acclaim, Jude and Hamlet earned little at the box office.
