No more nudity for Kate Winslet?
Kate Winslet, who is nominated for an Oscar for best actress in ”The Reader,” has been happy to take her clothes off for the sake of her art.
But those days may be over.
“I think I won’t do it again: a) I can’t keep getting away with it, and b) I don’t want to become ‘that actress who always gets her kit off,’” Winslet told Time magazine, in a profile that ran on its website on Thursday.
The comment comes the same day the Los Angeles Times ran an article looking at Winslet and fellow Oscar nominee Marisa Tomei, who plays a stripper in “The Wrestler” and who has also not been shy about shedding her clothes.
The LA Times wrote that, “Winslet would appear to have no equal among A-list actresses in her fearlessness about displaying her body.”
“Stretching from her career-making role in “Titanic” to “Iris” to 2006′s steamy “Little Children” — for each of which she received an Oscar nomination — Winslet has bared at least some skin in service to the film’s story,” the article said.
It appears to work for Winslet, 33, who has won six Oscar nominations in her career. On the set, Winslet appears to know exactly how to handle an awkward sex scene. She told Reuters that for “The Reader,” where she appeared nude with 18-year-old actor David Kross, she always knew where their bathrobes were and was quick to grab them after each film take.
With her acting ability, Winslet’s career will do just fine without nudity. But what will her fans think?
