Kate Winslet's stunning performance in Sense and Sensibility won her an Oscar® nomination when she was just 20 years old. Next, Kate made Hollywood history when she set sail on Titanic, the number one movie of all time, and earned a second Oscar® nomination, this time for best actress. Now, Kate is the heart of Finding Neverland, in which she plays the dying mother of the four young boys who inspire the tale of Peter Pan.
Off screen, her leading man is Oscar®-winning American Beauty director Sam Mendes. She's also the mother of two children, Joe and Mia.
About Mia's birth by Caesarian section, Kate says, "I spent my life being told I have these fantastic child-bearing hips, so I breezed through this pregnancy, merrily eating and gaining 70 pounds, and came to the birth just very excited and really looking forward to it. I never thought about a Cesarean section. It just didn't occur to me. After 37 hours, they came and said, 'We're going to have to induce you.' And even that didn't work! And then the C-section."
