In the press room, Kate Winslet was asked whom she would like to pass the gutsy nude-scene torch to, and Winslet took a long time to answer. "I got to go for a woman actually and be really controversial. Susan Sarandon."
Winslet said she still feels like a "Reading [England, her hometown] girl," telling backstage that her parents, who were at the Oscars, were pretty excited about her mother winning a pickled onion competition. She posed with her Oscar in front of the microphone for the local Reading paper. "This is for you," she said.
As for the possible actor's strike, Winslet says "I really, really hope we don't strike right now. Not for us actors here, but for the actors like my dad who depended on the occasional voice over or commercial job."
Back to the nude scenes, how was it for her to do a nude scene with her husband as director? "He saw me nude before he ever met me, so honestly he's used to it." Posted 02.23.09 by Ryan
