Okay, this may seem like a horrible comment. But, does anyone remember when Kate was on “Extras” she was said she had to do something with the Holocaust so she could win an Academy Award? She mentioned all the movies that have won awards and it was pretty funny (not making fun of the Holocaust). It makes you think about why she’s doing this movie.

Kate looks almost unrecognizable in this outfit and makeup. She’s so beautiful — they must have had to work really hard to change her appearance for this role. Can’t wait to see her in it.

# 4

She looks amazing, even in that outfit. I hope that she will be recognized this year for her amazing talent at this years award season! Cannot wait to see this movie and Revolutionary Road!

Kate Winslet is amazing. I love how she doesn’t care what the press thinks about her NORMAL body. And it is normal and she has nothing to be ashamed of.

She’s a true inspiration to all the girls and women out there, to not be ashamed of their bodies.

She’s a wonderful actress and I can’t wait until her movies come out.

Yes. That’s the problem. Everyone remembers that episode and keeps bringing it up whenver there’s a new scoop on this movie.

It’s just a f—in’ coincidence.

I can’t wait for this movie. Kate is one of my favorite actress!

# 8

Kate’s awesome!

i think you’ll find the extras thing was tongue in cheek, i.e a dam joke!

oh wow she is like 1 hour away from me. Maybe I should give it a visit…how long is she supposed to film?

Anyone read the book? I hear it’s very good. Kate looks plain here but I guess she is meant to be. She always looks beautiful.

Oh Kate looks gorgeous, even in little makeup and a plain look/outfit. It’s obviously for her character. I love these photos and Kate is adorable. About the Extras thing, I doubt that she accepted this film just because of what she said after Extras. She didn’t even write all that stuff – Ricky Gervais, the creator of the show, wrote it with his team. But if Kate does win an Oscar for this movie, it will be VERY ironic! To ‘Stephi’, Kate is supposed to film there for a couple weeks I think. She’s been there for almost a week now and I think she has 2-3 more weeks to go.

I don’t know anything about the Extras comments that you are talking about but I do know Kate was originally cast in this role, had to turn it down because of a conflict with another film she was doing, then the role went to Nicole Kidman and Nic backed out at the last minute when she found out she was pregnant. I think things were held up a bit while Kidman finished filming “Australia” with Hugh Jackman and by that time Kate was again free and took over for Nicole. Sooooo they got their first choice anyway, Kate.

She is great in every role she plays. I loved “Little Children” “Eternal Sunshine” “Iris” and many more films she has done. She is a true natural beauty, a gorgeous English rose with or without make-up.

Ha is opens on my birthday

Love Kate

Imagine if Nicole Kidman was in this outfit? I just couldn’t! It seems to be perfect for Kate!

i live in germany, actually i life in saxony, and i think its pretty cool that a star like kate winslet is here…

well and i know the book “the reader”, i had to read it last year, it was and okay book and even kinda sad, well i hope the movie is good

The book is soo depressing, Its about a women who has an affair with a jr high boy, I wonder how they are going to make that work!

I hardly think Kate took this role just to earn critical praise or because of what she said on Extras. I just thought the connection was funny.

“I hardly think Kate took this role just to earn critical praise or because of what she said on Extras. I just thought the connection was funny.”

No. The first 3000 times this was brought up was funny. Noi anymore.

We know about Kate’s stupid Holocaust Oscar comments and the irony already.

Just shut up.

The book is great. Kate Winslet’s part is not an easy one to play.

I think she is a good replacement for Kidman.

Thanks you for the pics, jared.

Simply the best young actress today! and very clever….a rarity!

It would have been funny though, if she actually won an Oscar for The Reader! Just to prove that Kate is right about the Holocaust :)
