Kate Winslet: Why I'm the "Hypocrite of the Decade"
Kate Winslet's words have come back to haunt her.
The 35-year-old actress, who has often bared all on film, tells the September issue of V Magazine that she regrets once vowing to stop doing nude scenes.
"It definitely makes me the hypocrite of the decade," she says. "I'm just going to stop saying it."
Winslet's most recent nude scenes were in the Emmy-nominated miniseries Mildred Pierce, and despite having exposed herself on camera before, the actress was just as nervous.
"I hate it! Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say 'Oh f---' let's do it,' and boom!" Winslet tells V Magazine. "If you complain about it or procrastinate it's not going to go away. It's a profoundly bizarre thing to do."
"As actors you talk about it all the time," she continues. "You can literally be tangled in sheets, and you turn to the other actor and say, 'What the f--- are we doing?' Dear Mum, at work today I had so-and-so's left nut sack pressed against my cheek. It's sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms."
The Contagion actress adds that she hopes to always be inspired by future projects. "I hope I am s---ting myself over the characters I play for the rest of my life, because the day I go, 'Oh yeah, that's going to be a piece of pie', why f--ing bother? If you do that, you do not learn."
"I hope I'm always learning something. So I won an Oscar. It's amazing. I've got that for the rest of my life for a performance I am proud of," Winslet says of her 2008 Academy Award for Best Actress in The Reader. "It nearly killed me. I am really proud of the film. That's it, moving on."
