24 Celebrity Wax Jobs

I don’t know about you, but I find celebrity wax figures slightly creepy. The shiny skin, the vacant eyes, the stiff poses … a little unnerving. With the exception of Kate Winslet’s likeness, which was unveiled this week at Madame Tussauds in London. Her wax self looks practically perfect in every way in her 2011 Emmy look, just like her real self did.  She joins the ranks of celebs to get waxed and put on display at museums around the world for fans to gawk at.

Is there any reason not to love Kate Winslet? She’s gorgeous, clever, and charming, not to mention one of the most compelling actresses in movies today. Kate also saved Richard Branson’s mother from a fire, making her a veritable saint. Fans of the British actress will also know that she has been the face of Lancôme for quite some time now. Over the summer, the French beauty brand announced plans to team up with Winslet in creating a makeup line that would serve to raise money and awareness for Kate’s charity, the Golden Hat Foundation, whose mission is to help children with autism in communicating more effectively. Kate and Lancôme have created a beautiful collection that goes hand in hand with a beautiful cause. The name of the line is, appropriately, Golden Hat, and it features a blush palette, a red lipstick, and a red nail lacquer. The blush, otherwise a pale pink, features the foundation’s emblem (a golden hat!). These offerings look lovely and I really enjoy Kate’s personal touches on the packaging. At least 150,000 euros (about $207,000) of the sale profits will be donated to the charity. [FashionIndie]

“[It] was like a movie … In disastrous moments you do the strangest things … I started to put on a bra and thought ‘that’s going to take too long’ so off came the bra on came the T-shirt … I grabbed the children and I picked up granny.”

– Kate Winslet tells Graham Norton about her brave decision to go braless while fleeing the fire at the Branson estate. There are moments in life when bras are totally irrelevant. This was one of them. Saving lives does not require a bra. [NY Post]

“There’s a scene where Mildred and Bert are divorced and they sit down together, because they’ve got to settle on a cause. The first stage of my divorce with Sam came through on the very day that we were shooting. So that scene is nothing to do with acting … As a woman, especially when you have children, one gets so good at soldiering on – almost too good. Because you know what it’s like – as soon as you open that can of worms, it’s so f***ing big, you wish you’d never taken the goddamn lid off. I’ve had to remind myself to have those moments of being able to have a f***ing good cry, but it did take someone putting their hand on me – a gay male friend, actually, who put his hand on my shoulder and said: ‘It’s OK, you can cry about this, and maybe you should.’”

Kate Winslet opens up to Harper’s Bazaar UK about her divorce from director Sam Mendes last year and how life was very much imitating art as she was filming “Mildred Pierce” for HBO. On a side note, who knew Kate dropped so many f-bombs? [ONTD]

Kate Winslet Would Be Fine If Her Son Was Gay

“I like being in the city. I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day. I love the way their brains work. [My son] Joe turns to me the other day and says ‘One day I will have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling. Which would you prefer?’ And I said ‘My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn’t make any difference to me.’ But that he knows! It’s a real privilege. Talk about the best education.”

Kate Winslet tells V magazine she wouldn’t care at all if her son was gay. What an awesome mama. Also, I love how her son calls her “darling”! [PopSugar] Keep reading »

Kate Winslet Talks Projectile Vomiting In Her New Film

“I had to contain a lot of vomit in my mouth, which is not possible for a person to do. So without going into too much detail, it was a fairly complex rig and there was some extremely clever CGI involved … It was hysterical. We were all completely beside ourselves with laughter … My kids came to work for the vomit day and I am so thrilled that they were there because they literally have not stopped talking about it since.”

Kate Winslet talks about her role in Roman Polanski‘s new flick, “Carnage,” in which she plays a Brooklyn mother who barfs after hearing about her son getting into a scuffle on the playground. Wow, Kate is sure going for Actress Most Likely To Perform Taboo Bodily Functions Onscreen. In addition to this, she also peed in “Holy Smoke” years ago. What’s next? [People] Keep reading »

Kate Winslet Talks Escaping From That Fire

“I’m just glad that everyone is safe. And this easily could not have been the case … I will never forget Richard placing his arms around both my children as we were watching the flames, and saying, ‘At the end of the day, what you realize is that all that matters is the people that you love. Everything else is just stuff. And none of that stuff matters.’”

Kate Winslet talks for the first time about the fire that occurred while she was vacationing on Richard Branson’s Necker Island with her children and her boyfriend, Louis Dowler. The 20 people staying at the resort made it out unharmed, Branson’s 90-year-old grandmother only because Winslet carried her out on her back. Even Branson’s tortoise managed to get out. Apparently, the fire started from a lightening strike thanks to Hurricane Irene. Irene, you have a lot to answer for. [NY Daily News]
