Kate Winslet got all dolled up to attend the Prix de Diane Longines 2014 in France yesterday, and the actress kind of reminded us of the Duchess of Cambridge with that fascinator!
The Oscar winner was accompanied by husband Ned Rocknroll, so it seems the couple got a babysitter to enjoy an adults-only day on the town!
"It’s a very strange place to be. Because the truth is, I’m not famous until I am in those moments. Those are the times when I am suddenly famous. My real life is a very real life. And I know I say this all the time, but it’s really true. Thank God," the 38-year-old recently Harper's Bazaar about public versus private life.
We love how modest she is about fame!
Last night the Divergent premiere was held at at the Regency Bruin Theatre in Los Angeles, and all the film's stars hit the red carpet, but we couldn't take our eyes off of Shailene Woodley and Kate Winslet.
Shailene showed some leg in a printed Elie Saab Couture dress while Kate showed off her impressive post-baby bod in a red Safiyaa dress. While Shailene looks gorgeous all glammed up, when we've spotted her around town she could care less about fashion. When she chatted with reporters yesterday, she revealed that she was ready to change into something much more comfortable.
"Someone down there is holding a very large tote bag with jeans, flip flops and a t-shirt," she said, pointing to the end of the carpet when she answered a few questions for USA Today. "As soon as I'm done with this I'll be in jeans for the movie." Sounds about right!
Kate Winslet is currently promoting Divergent, and during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on Tuesday she chatted about her new film, the recent Los Angeles earthquake and yup, the reason she and hubby Ned Rocknroll chose to name her third child Bear Blaze.
Kate told Ellen:
"We were thinking about names during the pregnancy and actually I had never…when I was pregnant with Mia and when I was pregnant with Joe I didn’t name them before they came out because I always felt like I just have to see them and see who they’re going to be. But of course, this time around there’s Mia and Joe and the whole pregnancy is about what are we gonna call the baby. So it was really lovely actually they were very much included and we settled on Bear quite early on. A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear and I just had always really loved it. And he was very much a bear. He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on he was a big bear hug, he was a great figure in my life and I just had always remembered him and so that’s where it came from. And then Bear’s second name is Blaze because my husband and I met in a house fire basically. Well, we did."
Winslet is referring to the 2011 fire on Richard Branson's Necker Island resort, and she actually rescued Branson's 90-year-old mother from the blaze, so clearly it was a very intense time for the family.
“The house burned down and we survived,” she added. “But we wanted something of the fire, and so Blaze was the name that we came up with.” However, Bear’s last name is Winslet, and when asked why it isn’t Rocknroll, Winslet replied: “Why do you think, Ellen?”
At least she's aware of how it sounds!
Kate Winslet received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, and the A-list actress showed no signs of lingering pregnancy pounds in a LBD as she accepted her honor.
The Oscar winner and husband Ned Rocknroll welcomed son Bear a mere three months ago, which may explain why the Titanic star's main men, along with daughter Mia and son Joe, were missing at the festivities. Someone's gotta look after the brood while the British beauty soaks in the praise of her public!
Her Divergent co-star Shailene Woodley praised the mother-of-three in a beautiful speech, which brought the Labor Day star to tears.
"I have never met a more empowered, beautiful, humble and selfless [woman]. As a young woman - I'm going to start crying - it's inspiring to see somebody who has navigated this industry in such a beautiful and professional way. I couldn't be more honored to know you and work with you," she gushed.
There's nothing Ms. Winslet doesn't do perfectly, including weight loss!

Luckily the couple decided to give their baby boy her last name -- otherwise he would have Bear Rocknroll. Rar!

Kate also has a son, Joe, with ex-husband/director Sam Mendes and a daughter, Mia, with her first ex-husband/director Jim Threapleton.

Kate Winslet premiered her new film Labor Day at the BFI London Film Festival in Odeon Leicester Square on Sunday, and we think the title is pretty ironic given the fact that she's about two months away from her own labor day!
When asked whether she would be taking a long maternity leave, the expectant actress told reporters, "Err... Ask me that on a different red carpet, I've got pregnancy brain!" So what about her cravings? "I've been wanting to drink a lot of orange juice but I don't know if that is part of it," she said.
Winslet and hubby Ned Rocknroll (Richard Branson's nephew, in case you didn't know) are expecting their first child together in December. Kate also has a son, Joe, with ex-husband/director Sam Mendes and a daughter, Mia, with her first ex-husband/director Jim Threapleton.
