Kate Winslet: Acting 'Needs to be Mysterious'

Kate Winslet steps out in Ralph Lauren on the red carpet at a Lancome event on Monday (July 11) in Beijing, China.

The 35-year-old actress, who’s set to star in Labor Day opposite Josh Brolin, has been nominated to receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year!

“What I’ve learned about acting is that it needs to be mysterious. If you overthink how a beat needs to be played, it can trip you up,” Kate recently told the L.A. Times.

“Because you’re trying to do something that is real and sincere in the moment, so that people believe you. There are times when you just have to put yourself as deeply and firmly in a character’s shoes as you can,” she added.

FYI: Kate finished off her look with a Sergio Rossi bag and Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

    Pure elegance! I love Kate’s style because it’s so understated and at the same time she always looks comfortable. You can tell she wears what she feels good in and doesn’t make a big fuss over dresses. She’s no fashionista which is why people shouldn’t be surprised by her constant love for simple black dresses. Simplicity is the way to go for her. Big crazy dresses don’t fit her personality at all.

  • ModestMouse

    @Marisa: She’s one of few people who can work a black dress without looking boring. Sofia Coppola, Carey Mulligan and Kirsten Dunst also come to mind!

    Terrific actress, always enjoy all her performances. She looks great, but she does look older than 35, in fact, even in her 20s, she looked like she was in her 30s, just an old way about her in her looks, some people always looks more mature and Kate is one of them.

  • em

    I can’t stand her

  • Hans

  • big poppa pump

    I usually like Kate but this is the wrong look for her. Her eyebrows are to dark and her skin is to oily for this makeup style. It looks like she has a hairy lip as well.

  • Marsman Daguio

    No matter what people think or say about her, she’s a living legend. The reason she looks older than she really is is because people respect her beyond her age and only few actresses are there in this world like her. Well then, Kate Winslet is Kate Winslet! There you go…
