Kate Winslet isn't focused solely on Oscar come Sunday night. Although one would expect the Academy Award-nominated actress to be most excited about winning the gold statue for her leading role in The Reader, she has something else to look forward to.
"I like seeing my mum getting her makeup done," Winslet tells Usmagazine.com. "I'm sort of more excited about that than anything else! That's always a real treat for her." Winslet, who has been nominated five previous times for the award, does admit that she's anxious.
"I'm extremely nervous, and you know there's really no magic formula, even though I have been through this before," she told Us at the U.S. Ireland Alliance Pre-Oscar party in L.A. on Thursday. "I think it gets harder actually. It doesn't seem to get any easier."
Winslet, who told Time magazine that she had a panic attack two weeks ago, hasn't calmed down yet. "I'm just in a permanent state of high anxiety, really," she tells Us. "[I'm] trying to go with the flow."
