Kate Winslet Is Oscar-Worthy
Kate Winslet shows off her wrapped-up Oscar just after arriving to JFK Airport from Los Angeles on Monday (February 23).
The 33-year-old actress won the Academy Award for Best Actress for performance in The Reader.
“I’d be lying if I haven’t made a version of this speech before,” Kate said while accepting the award. “I think I was probably 8 years old and staring into the bathroom mirror and this (Oscar) would be a shampoo bottle. But it’s not a shampoo bottle now.”
“My kids are waiting for me to bring home an Oscar,” Kate later said. “It’s great because with my husband’s Oscar we now have a pair. They love playing with my awards and this means they get to hold one each. I might just try and hang on to it for a while myself though.”
