Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet Joined Forces to Save a Woman's Life

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet worked together to make sure that a mom battling cancer was able to have access to the life-saving treatment she desperately needed.

Gemma Nuttall was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer while pregnant and refused to be given drugs to treat the cancer as she would’ve had to terminate her pregnancy.

After her daughter Penelope was born, Gemma did everything she could to fight the cancer, but was told she eventually had just six to 12 months to live. She started a fundraiser to raise money for immunotherapy and that’s where Leo and Kate came in.

Kate heard about Gemma‘s story and teamed up with Leo to auction off three “Jack and Rose” date nights, which helped raise the £300,000 needed for the treatment.

Gemma is now cancer free and thanking Kate for what she and Leo did to help her.

“I can’t thank Kate enough. Without her donations, and the public’s, my story would be very different. We thought it was a wind-up, but then she called and I realized she was serious,” she told The Mirror. “I was so nervous but she asked me how I was feeling and how my ­treatment was going – she wanted to help. I told her I could never thank her enough and she told me not to be daft. She said she had read about my story online, that she had three kids of her own and had thought about what she would be like in that position. She said: ‘I just felt that urge to reach out to you, I knew that I wanted to help.’”

Kate Winslet Says She Has 'Bitter Regrets' After Working With Certain 'Men of Power'

Kate Winslet opens up about having “bitter regrets” about working with certain “men of power.”

“I wouldn’t be able to stand here this evening, and keep to myself some bitter regrets that I have at poor decisions to work with individuals with whom I wish I had not,” the 42-year-old actress expressed (via Vulture) while accepting The Dilys Powell Award for Excellence in Film from presenter Jude Law at the 2018 London Film Critics’ Circle Awards held at The May Fair Hotel on Sunday (January 28) in London, England.

“Directors, producers, and men of power who have for decades been awarded and applauded for their highly regarded work by both this industry and moviegoers alike,” Kate continued. “It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men. Sexual abuse is a crime. While it rests with the rule of law to pass judgment, it lies with all of us to listen to the smallest of voices and to never stop listening.”

“Those who do have a voice are becoming afraid to say anything, because of intense scrutiny and criticism,” Kate concluded. “Nobody should be exempt from having a right to speak in support of vulnerable people. There are those who can speak so powerfully for those who are not able to do so themselves, and let us please not make this about which people express public regret.”

The statement alludes to Kate‘s work with her Wonder Wheel director Woody Allen, who was accused of sexual assault by his daughter Dylan Farrow.

Kate Winslet Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein During Oscars Speech on Purpose

Kate Winslet is opening up about working with Harvey Weinstein on The Reader and how she purposely didn’t thank him when she won an Oscar for her role in the film.

The actress told THR about how Weinstein distributed her first movie and that he never let it go.

“He would come up to me every time I saw him, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie!’ He didn’t ‘give me’ my first movie – I auditioned for four months. Peter Jackson gave me the part. But, you know, how dare he even sow that seed in my mind, that in some way any part of my career had anything to do with him rooting for me or pushing for me or putting my name forward,” Kate said.

“He was just so horrible to deal with,” Kate added. “I was one of the ones he would label ‘difficult’ because I wouldn’t do the things he would ask for me to do on a business-level…. These were ridiculous requests…. He didn’t like me because I wouldn’t be bullied by him.”

Kate also opened up about how The Reader was supposed to be released a year after it came out in theaters, but Weinstein decided to release it at the same time as Revolutionary Road, her movie with then-husband Sam Mendes.

“I just thought to myself, ‘Well, if I can just get my own back in some way at this awful man, I’m not gonna thank him. If I happen to win that Oscar [for The Reader], I am not going to say thank you,’” Kate said. And she didn’t thank him.
