The Titanic actress said, "I have to say there’s a myth around famous Hollywood women that they kind of look perfect all the time."
"For me, playing Mare was almost an opportunity to cut through that myth and show that this is just a real person, a real mother juggling real life. I definitely feel more compelled now to make sure that the characters I play look relatable and accessible."
The HBO mini-series sees Kate shed her English persona to play Mare Sheehan, a troubled detective whose life is upturned after she reopens an investigation into a missing girl in her hometown of Philadephia.
The stress of her job is exacerbated by her complicated personal life, which is shaped by family tribulations and complex romances.

From its rustic backdrop to its rugged costume design, the stripped-back Mare of Easttown showcases Kate Winslet without any filters.
However, Kate revealed this week that the director wanted to airbrush her. She claimed that the series director, Craig Zobel, "assured her" he could airbrush "a bulgy bit of belly" out of her sex scene in the first episode. Of course, Kate immediately rejected his proposal, telling him, "Don't you dare!"
The actress, who admitted to dying her own hair in lockdown, also said that she's not one for 'huge rituals' when it comes to her beauty routine.
"We can’t deny our age but we can defy our years by doing what we can to keep our skin boosted and hydrated," she said. "I do think anti-ageing treatments are fantastic. If the product says that it helps with fine lines, then it bloody better do its job."
