Kate Winslet Talks Harsh Criticism in Glamour UK February 2014
The "Titanic" star looked absolutely gorgeous in designer duds from Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana for the Chris Craymer-shot spread while opening up about her low-profile lifestyle and even talked about raising kids with different fathers.
Highlights from Miss Winlet's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Glamour UK!
On her privacy:
"When Ned and I got married - the lengths we went to: 'Don't tell me over the phone!' The sad thing is, anyone who was in the public eye, you just expected your phone to be hacked. Still now, I'm having a private conversation, I'll say, 'Don't tell me over the phone.' The assumption is that if you're successful you probably think you're something special, so we probably ought to take you down a peg or two. But I don't think I'm special at all. The reality is I absolutely love my little life - which is, away from all the other, a little life. I trundle along; we have friends over; I make dinner. It's weird because the two worlds are so different: from fishfingers for tea to film sets. But that's the case for any actress who's a mother. Sure, I could have lots of people who do the cooking, the driving, all that jazz- but I would be unhappy. I wouldn't want my children raised that way."
On her refusal to read about herself:
"I don't actually read anything in the press, because if I did, I would be a crazy person. But no one knows about my life. No one knows what's really happened in my life. Believe me, at the end of the day, all that matters is that I'm not any kind of f***-up. No one has a right to comment on anyone's life or the choices I do or don't make. It's very easy to be judgmental until you know someone's truth. People have no idea at all. The lovely thing for me is that I don't have to say what's happened in my life that has taken me down this path. I just can't even begin to tell you how lucky I am that I suddenly feel I've got something wonderful."
On the media's harsh remarks about her children:
"It's quite sad that we live in a nation where the press choose to be unkind about the fact that I [had] a baby. It baffles me, truly, that you can publicity treat a person like that. It's not very nice. I'm really sorry to be the nation's press that I fell in love and got pregnant; I do apologize if you deem that irresponsible."
