Kate Winslet: Daughter "Mortified" She Wore a Gray Dress to the Oscars
Oscar winner Kate Winslet already made one worst dressed list - her daughter's! After being named best actress on Sunday, she phoned her children backstage. Her 8-year-old daughter, Mia, couldn't get over Winslet's Yves St. Laurent asymmetric evening gown.
"I said, 'Hi, Mia, did you jump up and down?'" she said on The Oprah Winfrey Show Monday. "[Mia] says: 'Yes, I did, Mum, I did. I need to talk to you about the dress. it was gray.' She was absolutely mortified I wore a gray dress."
Winslet told Winfrey she didn't want a lot of dresses being sent to her. "I think in this time in the economy, it's just not nice to have people make lots of dresses and you just wear one out of a possible five," she said. "So Yves St. Laurent very kindly said, 'We'd like to make something for you,' and that was what we did."
Getting on stage to accept her Oscar was "an out-of-body experience." Added the actress, "You just think, 'This can't be happening.'"
Now she can't stop staring her her statue. "Isn't he cute?" she asked Winfrey as she held her Oscar. "I keep sort of looking at him â€¦ and looking at every little piece. Very nice bottom."
Winslet said you won't be seeing that much of her on the big screen from now on. "I have done quite a lot of nudity, and I feel like my kids, they're 8 and 5 now, maybe they're going to start to become aware of the amount of nudity I've done," she says. "I just sort of feel like I can't get away with it that much longer."
