Kate Winslet | Covers 'V Magazine' September 2011
Kate Winslet graces the cover of V Magazine’s September issue, on newsstands September 8.
The 35-year-old British actress worked with photographer Mario Testino for The Heroes Issue, where she channeled one of her own heroes, Elizabeth Taylor.
Here’s what Kate had to share with the mag:
On her childhood: “I was extremely self sufficient. At the age of 9 I knew I wanted to be an actress. I had that sort of determination that that I can imagine in 9 or 10-year-old girl, for a parent, must have been fairly disconcerting … I didn’t know how on earth I was going to pull any of that off, but I was just sure of it.”
On nude scenes: “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. If you complain about it or procrastinate it’s not going to go away. It’s a profoundly bizarre thing to do … 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.”
