The world has come to a standstill during lockdown - and like most of us, Kate Winslet's normal routine has been affected too.
The Titanic star, who was speaking about her new film, Ammonite, during a BBC interview confessed that her job has changed dramatically since the pandemic, but she's happy that she hasn't had to 'get on any flights' in the last year.
However, Kate also revealed that constant Zoom interviews and working from home, instead of going away to work, has confused her seven-year-old son Bear.

Talking about their normal set up Kate admitted that even pre-pandemic she and her husband Ned didn't have childcare: “My husband and I, we’re sort of this team and we don’t have staff, as Ned looks after them."
However, as she's normally flying off to film or attend premieres around the world the mum-of-three said that her new, WFH set up, has confused her youngest.
She said: "For my little one, Bear, it's so abstract, Mummy's running around and doing interviews like this - he doesn't quite know what it all is. Whereas if I've gone away somewhere to work, he just knows that I'm working."

Despite her son's confusion, she says that the benefits are not having to constantly fly around the world - which in turn means she is reducing her carbon footprint.
