Kate Winslet may have walked countless red carpets during her impressive film career, but that doesn't mean she never gets cold feet.
The Mare of Easttown star has opened up about her top priorities at 'nerve-wracking' glitzy events—and they might not be what you expect.
Having already achieved Hollywood royalty status with her Oscar win for Best Actress back in 2009, it seems Kate isn't too nervous anymore about fashion mistakes and acceptance speeches. Rather, the British actor has a much simpler concern on her mind—staying comfortable.
"I always just hope I can keep myself calm and feel comfortable," she told People magazine in a recent interview. Kate tries to maintain her composure by fending off two of her biggest red carpet fears—painful shoes and a bleeding uterus. She said that as long as "my feet don't hurt or I'm not on my period", she can usually enjoy the star-studded evening.
The candid revelations come just a few weeks after Kate Winslet said it's a 'myth' that Hollywood women look perfect all the time. The Titanic actor has been very vocal about the unrealistic expectations on female actors over the past year, even revealing she refused airbrushing of her 'bulgy' body in the Mare of Easttown.
Kate also reminisced about the emerald green dress she wore to the 1998 Academy Awards, comparing it to "embroidered sculpture."
The golden encrusted gown, which was paired with a matching bolero, was custom-made by Givenchy for the Titanic actor's big night. "I have to be honest, the dress was not entirely comfortable to wear. Or sit down in. But it was worth it because he had made it."
