Kate Winslet is Back to Black

Kate Winslet is Back to Black

Kate Winslet opts for a black Helmut Lang dress as she attends the 2009 Oscar Nominees Luncheon held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Monday.

The 33-year-old English actress is up for Best Actress for her performance in The Reader.

Speaking about her role in the film to her two kids, she said, “They got mightily fed up with me reading bedtime stories with a German accent! They said, ‘Mum, just be plain. Don’t do any funny stuff like voices. Just be regular!’”

Kate went on to say, “I had to say, ‘But, I’m not regular and I’m never going to be regular. When you’re a teenager you’re going to know that it’s cool!’”

  • jessalyn

    She’s a talented actress. I’m not a huge fan, but she is talented. I like her with red hair instead of blond…

  • bella

  • andamentothat

    Kate has amazing skill as an actress. Such depth and completion in each moment. It seems like she must have been trained for stage since her work is so seamless. I hope she takes the cake and wins the Oscar. She is a joy to watch on the screen!

  • ji

    i absolutely adore this wman. absolute beauty with amazing talent nd seems to be such a genuinely beautiful person

  • ERin

    #4, I think she means “I’m not regular” in the sense that most moms don’t have to speak with an accent to get a paycheck. Perhaps she should have said “I’m not the norm, I’m not typical”. Whatever. She has never seemed anything like a bunch of other “actors” who are known more for who they sleep with and what they wear than their work. So, you go Kate!

  • Blah girls!

    BEAUTIFUL! this lady gets better and better with age!

  • lakers fan in boston

  • elanenergy

    I’m pretty impressed with Kate, and I don’t impress easily.

  • Kate Rules

    can anybody examplain to me what she meant by “I had to say, ‘But, I’m not regular and I’m never going to be regular. When you’re a teenager you’re going to know that it’s cool!’”. I dont get it
    Still think shes is drop dead goorgeous!

  • kasey11

    i love kate winslet! she is awesome!love her!!!

  • Sarah

    She’s a beauty!

  • Kay

    Love her! Rooting her to win the Oscar! She deserves it! Melissa Leo and Angelina Jolie are dark horses to win and Kate, Meryl Streep, and Anne Hathaway are locks to win!

  • naomi

    That’s actually a Spring 2009 shirt tucked into a skirt.
    She looks stunning though. :)

  • sarah

  • elizabeth marinas

  • mike

    number 4 you obviously are too simple minded to realize what she meant….

  • gerard Vandenberg


  • lizzie

  • lizzie
  • Alice

    my god she’s beautiful! goooooooo lovely Kateeee! >__<

  • serena

    Okay, even this white trash cleans up nice. Pretty hair.

  • mimilala

    Absolutely gorgeous!

  • custom t

    I’m so happy Kate is back in action! She looks gorgeous as always.

  • Diana

    Can’t STAND this actress!! So fake! Really should get a clue from the queen of acting, Meryl Streep! Streep’s well deserved Oscar will go to Winslet NOT because she gave a fine performance (Her Hanna was boring as SIN with absolutely no depth) but because it’s a pity Oscar. Awe, you’ve been campaigning so hard and have been nominated 5 times without winning…well, here you go. Ugh! It makes me sick! I wish the Oscars were about the performances NOT the campaigning!!!

  • Anna marie

    It amazes how way better she looks now than when she was younger. She gets hotter with age.

    I watched both her movies Revolutiona Road and The Reader and I have to say that she was BRILLIANT in both movies, she blew me away. She can show different kind of emotions with her face. She delivered a powerful performance with the Reader with just few words.

    Hope she wins the Oscar this year. She deserves it.

  • Polo

    WOAH Diana, you need to calm it down dude. She’s amazingly talented and gorgous.

  • lia

    Diana must be another delusional Angelina Jolie fan. hey, Diana if you have such a hate for her why do you watch her movies? Yeah, you o on all her posts to trash her and it makes you look incredibly pathetic. Meryl is the queen of acting actresses, but Kate deserves to win.She’s the youngest person to have 6 Oscar nominations so ha! Your precious Angelina will not win and all she will be screaming is,
    “I WANTT My Oscar!!!”

    p.s. You obviously don’t know acting because Kate was MESMERIZING in The Reader.

  • Diana

    Hah! Angelina?! LOL! She’s on par with Winslet. Overacting hacks who don’t deserve all of the drooling they acquire because of their looks. REAL acting is Meryl Streep. You Winslet fanboys are pathetic and I believe worse than Jolie fans now! I know Winslet will get the pity Oscar and it’s sad really. Meryl had a much better performance than both Jolie & Winslet and I think they both know it. Well, Winslet might not since she thinks she’s God’s gift to everything acting. I wish she’d get her silly pity Oscar and go away!

  • yaseer
