Kate Winslet Has A Fear Of Flying

Kate Winslet signs some autographs for fans as she arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles after a flight from New York City on Wednesday.

It’s been rumored that the 32-year-old British actress will next star in Fear of Flying, an adaptation of Erica Jong‘s 1973 best-selling novel about a married poet who starts fulfilling some of her sexual fantasies.

“I would love to see Kate Winslet in that role,” director Diane English tells E!.”She’s got the script, so we’ll see.”

English wrote and directed The Women, which is currently out in theaters. She’ll likely be penning the screenplay and directing Fear of Flying.

    Her forehead doesn’t move? Well she’s not really making expressions for the lines on your forehead to move up and down is she? I think Kate looks beautiful! It is literally so refreshing to see posts about her because it’s not very often. She’s a natural beauty but she also has talent. Love her!!

    Many creative people have fear of flying because their imagination is so vivid it becomes real enough to cause high anxiety or even panic when flying, and imagining something going wrong.

    As both an airline captain and licensed therapist, I’ve worked with several thousand people to beat fear of flying, including a number of very famous clients.

    My Favorite Actress. Her & Leo really should be together..

  • Angie

    I’m sorry, but I really don’t like her as an actress. She’s too bland and boring, plays the same characters the same way over and over and over. I’m more of a Streep fan myself.

    But I think she’s pretty in a natural way. I wouldn’t ever call her “gorgeous”, but pretty.

    sorry #23, my name happens to be Angie too. :)

    What a wild part to play. I remember reading that book as a kid and thinking “Boy, I did not know that women could think about sex like this”. I recall a passage where she describes a guy as “not too successful with wiping his ass. He left shit stripes on my sheets”. I apologize Ms. Jong if I misquotated a word or two but I think this is pretty close to verbatim. What an impression that made on a 9 year old!

    Kate is # 1…definitively!!!

    Kate’s not the only celeb that’s afraid, to fly….I read someplace I think People magazine, that the Irish guy who was in “A Beautiful Mind” is also terribly phobic about flying. There’s a lot of good free info hereFree Fear of Flying Help – og Yeah..wasn’t Whopee just yakking about it too on The View?.
