Who doesn't like Kate Winslet? The English actress is beautiful, smart, and talented. She's one of the biggest names in Hollywood, starring in mega successful movies like Titanic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Reader.
In her acceptance speech at the London Critics's Circle film awards on Sunday, the Oscar winner joined the chorus of Hollywood stars condemning sexual misconduct within the entertainment industry. Finally, right? Well, it wasn't quite all that we expected it to be.
In 2009, Kate won the best actress Oscar for her role in The Reader, and was told to thank media mogul Harvey Weinstein, but she didn't. Kate described Harvey as a man with "disgraceful behavior," but her reasons for not including him in her acceptance speech had nothing to do with sexual harassment.
“That was absolutely deliberate,” she said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “It was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?”
The 42-year-old actress has finally taken the stage to publicly express some of the choices she's made over her acting career.
We were all waiting for her to express her feelings about starring in Woody Allen's recent film Wonder Wheel. After previously side-stepping the question about the controversy surrounding the director, we've been waiting for a women in her position to say something powerful.
