“Titanic” star Kate Winslet has revealed she keeps her Oscar gong, which she won for her role in “The Reader”, in her bathroom.
“The whole point is for everybody to pick it up and go, ‘I’d like to thank my son and my dad’ – and you can always tell when someone has, because they’re in there a little bit longer after they flushed,” she said.
“They’ll come out looking slightly pink-cheeked. It’s hysterical.”
Winslet, 39, said she feels proud not to reveal much about her failed marriages to Jim Threapleton (1998-2001) and Sam Mendes (2003-11).
“No one really knows what has happened in my life. No one really knows why my first marriage didn’t last; no one knows why my second didn’t. And I’m proud of those silences.
“I know lots of people who are not in the public eye who have gone through several marriages, I really do, and it’s just those are the cards that life dealt me. I didn’t plan on it being that way… It hasn’t been easy, you know.”
