Early life and family

Bell was born and raised in Huntington Woods, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. She is the daughter of Tom Bell, the television news director for WOAI-TV in San Antonio, and Lori, a registered nurse. Bell is of Polish and Scottish descent. Her parents divorced when she was two years old, and she has two half sisters, Sara and Jody, from her father's second marriage. She has four step-siblings from her mother's second marriage to John Raymond Avedian, Laura, John, Matt Avedian, and Megan. Bell has strabismus, which affects her right eye. She inherited it from her mother, who had it corrected as a child. Bell claims that if she does not get enough sleep, it aggravates the ailment. She calls her right eye "Wonky".

At the age of four, Bell claimed she did not like her first name. Her mother convinced Bell to go by her middle name of Anne instead; she used the name Annie until high school. She attended Burton Elementary school in Huntington Woods.

Just before her freshman year of high school, Bell's parents decided to pull her from the public school system. She then attended Shrine Catholic High School in nearby Royal Oak, where she took part in the drama and music club. During her time at the school, she won the starring role in the school's 1997 production of The Wizard of Oz as Dorothy Gale and also appeared in productions of Fiddler on the Roof (1995), Lady Be Good (1996), and Li'l Abner (1998). In 1998, the year she graduated, Bell was named the yearbook's "Best Looking Girl" by senior class vote.

When Bell was 17, her best friend, whom she met at age 11 during a Detroit community theater production, was killed in an automobile accident. Bell said that it was "both the best and worst thing that has ever happened to me. [...] Once you learn not to take people for granted, you live a lot happier life".

Shortly after her high school graduation, Bell moved to New York City to attend the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, majoring in musical theater. In 2001, during her senior year at New York University, Bell left a few credits shy of graduating to take a role in the Broadway musical version of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

Career

Early work (1992–2003)

In 1992, Bell went to her first audition and won a dual role as a banana and a tree in a suburban Detroit theater's production of Raggedy Ann and Andy. Her mother had established her with an agent before Bell was 13, which allowed her to appear in newspaper advertisements for several Detroit retailers and television commercials. She also began private acting lessons. In 1998, she appeared with an uncredited role in the locally filmed movie Polish Wedding.

Kristen Bell also portrays Sally Wister in The History Channel's Choosing Sides: Young Voices on the Revolution currently showing at Independence Hall visitors center in Philadelphia.

In 2001, Bell left New York University to take a key role as Becky Thatcher in the short-lived Broadway musical of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. That same year she made her credited film debut in Pootie Tang. Her one line in the film was cut and her appearance exists only as a scene shown during the credit sequence. Additionally, she auditioned for the television series Smallville for the role of Chloe Sullivan, a part eventually won by Allison Mack. In 2002, she appeared in the Broadway revival of The Crucible with Liam Neeson, Angela Bettis and Laura Linney. Bell then moved to Los Angeles, California in 2002 because of her friendship with writers Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney, and appeared in a handful of television shows as a special guest, finding trouble gaining a recurring role in a television series. Bell had "tested like eight times and booked nothing and every show [she] tested for got picked up," including auditions for Skin and a Norm Macdonald series. In 2003, she landed a role in the Hallmark Channel movie The King and Queen of Moonlight Bay.

Bell appeared on the show Punk'd.

Breakout (2004–06)

In 2004, Bell appeared in the Lifetime television movie Gracie's Choice, which received one of the network's highest ratings. She made her debut in a theatrically released film, with David Mamet's Spartan, as Laura Newton, the kidnapped daughter of the U.S. President, acting alongside Val Kilmer. Bell also guest-starred on the HBO's drama Deadwood in a two-episode story arc ("Bullock Returns to the Camp" and "Suffer the Little Children").

At 24 she won the role of the title character in UPN's drama Veronica Mars, which was launched in the fall of 2004. Created by Rob Thomas, the series starred Bell as the seventeen year old detective Veronica, which put her alongside actors Enrico Colantoni who played her father, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III and Ryan Hansen. Bell noted the parallels between the character of Veronica and her own life — Bell's parents had divorced and her best friend had also died, like that of Veronica. The series earned positive reviews from television critics, as did Bell's performance. Some critics felt that she was overlooked, however, and deserved an Emmy Award nomination.

In 2005, Bell starred in Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical, reprising the role she played in the short-lived 2001 off-broadway musical. The musical was a spoof of the 1936 exploitation film of the same name. Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical debuted on the Showtime network on April 16, 2005. On September 18, 2005, Bell performed the theme song from Fame on the "Emmy Idol" portion of the 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. She and the cast of Veronica Mars were nominated for two Teen Choice Awards in 2005: "Choice Breakout Actress" and "Choice Breakout TV Show".

In 2006, Bell won the Saturn Award for "Best Actress on Television" for her acting on Veronica Mars, while the series was nominated for "Best Network Television Show". Aside from working on Veronica Mars, in April, Bell starred as Gracie in Fifty Pills, an entry for the Tribeca Film Festival. She appeared in a short independent film called The Receipt and the horror film Roman, which was directed by her The Crucible co-star Angela Bettis. Released on August 11, 2006, Pulse starred Bell as the lead Mattie. A remake of the Japanese horror film Kairo, the film grossed US$27.9 million worldwide, however it garnered negative response from critics. Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter commented, "despite the starring presence of Kristen Bell, [the] young actress has far less interesting material to work with here than she does as [the character] "Veronica Mars.""

Recent and future roles (2007–present)

Veronica Mars continued on UPN until the third season, in which the show was renewed and returned on the newly created The CW. On January 19, 2007 CW Entertainment President Dawn Ostroff announced that, while she was pleased with the gradual improvement of Veronica Mars's ratings, the series would be put on hiatus after February sweeps to air a new reality series, Pussycat Dolls Present. On May 17, 2007 Ostroff announced the cancellation of the series. The two-hour series finale aired in the United States on May 22, 2007, and on June 11, 2007 Thomas officially announced in an email to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello that Veronica Mars had been canceled by the CW. A Veronica Mars feature film and comic book series continuation had been discussed, and for a short time there was talk of another collaboration between Bell and creator Thomas that would be unrelated to the Veronica Mars series.

Following the cancellation of Veronica Mars, Bell had voiced interest in appearing on Heroes because she was a fan prior to being cast. On July 29, 2007, during a train ride back to Los Angeles from the San Diego Comic-Con with Heroes actors Zachary Quinto and Masi Oka, and writers from the series, the writers had mentioned that if she "ever want[ed] to come on Heroes, give us [writers] a call," to which Bell said she would "love to." She was also spoken to about a role on Lost, but turned down the role to portray Charlotte Staples Lewis. Announced in August 2007, Bell was to portray Elle Bishop, a "mysterious young lady" with an "awesome power". She did not have to audition for the role of Elle, who made her first appearance in an October 2007 episode, and will appear in at least thirteen episodes during the run of the series. The casting of Bell, as Heroes creator Tim Kring explains, "was not easy to pull off", but because of the large ensemble cast of the series and multiple story arcs, "we found a way to jump into a small window in [Bell's] schedule." Concurrently with filming on Heroes, she narrates as title character in the CW series Gossip Girl.

Shortly after the cancellation of Veronica Mars in early 2007, Bell filmed on location in Hawaii for her starring role as the title character in the Judd Apatow comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. She noted that the improvisational comedy in the film was "a lovely experience". The film, written by and also starring Jason Segel, was released theatrically on April 18, 2008. Bell lent her voice and likeness to the video game Assassin's Creed which was released on November 13, 2007 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and April 8, 2008 for the PC. Bell reprises her role of Lucy in Assassin's Creed II released on November 17, 2009, and again in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, released on 16 November 2010. In the spring of 2006, she finished filming the Star Wars-themed comedy Fanboys, which had its release date pushed to January 14, 2008. This was due to additional funding given to director Kyle Newman to shoot new scenes, however, the busy schedules of the actors only allowed for filming in September 2007, thus moving the release date to accommodate that. Bell will voice the character of Marybelle in the animated feature Sheepish, which also has a 2008 release date. She also starred in the 2009 comedies Serious Moonlight, alongside Meg Ryan, and Couples Retreat, which chronicled four couples who partake in therapy sessions at a tropical island resort. Jason Bateman played her husband. On March 31, 2008, Bell began shooting for the Mark Steven Johnson-written Disney film When in Rome in locations in Rome and New York; the film was released in 2010. Bell reprised her role as Sarah Marshall for a cameo appearance in the film Get Him to the Greek, a spin-off sequel from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, released June 4, 2010.

Bell has also said that when she is free from film and television roles, she would like to perform on stage again. She co-starred with singers Christina Aguilera and Cher in the movie-musical Burlesque which was released on Thanksgiving in 2010.

Bell had a cameo in Scream 4, which was released on April 15, 2011. She is also attached to the films Everybody Loves Whales and Dance of the Mirlitons.

She has also appeared in the music video for "Madder Red" by Brooklyn experimental rock band Yeasayer.

Bell portrays the role of "Mary Magdalene" in "The Truth & Life Dramatized Audio New Testament Bible," a 22-hour, celebrity-voiced, fully dramatized audio New Testament which uses the RSV-CE translation.

She recently shot the pilot for the new series House of Lies directed by Stephen Hopkins.

In the media

In 2005, Bell was named by Jane magazine as "one of the 11 people you'd most like to see naked", and in 2006, Bell was selected "World's Sexiest Vegetarian" on PETA's yearly poll. She was placed #68 on Maxim's 2005 "Hot 100" list, #11 in Maxim's 2006 "Hot 100" list, and #46 in Maxim's 2007 "Hot 100" list in which she was stated to have "single-handedly saved the CW from becoming the worst network ever." In 2006, Maxim also placed Bell at the top of the "Fall TV's Criminally Sexy Investigators" List. In 2008, she was featured at #59 on Ask Men's Top 99 Women of 2008 List. Reflecting on her admitted popularity with "geeks", Bell was voted the fourth sexiest woman on TV by the staff at Wizard magazine.

She stated to have never thought of herself as womanly because she "always play[ed roles] and look[ed] and act[ed] 10 years younger than [she is]", however as she explains, "Something magical happened when I turned 25 — I looked in the mirror and was like, You might not get carded for an R-rated movie anymore. Like I didn't have a little stick figure anymore." Bell has said that many of the characters she has played are tomboys because she was "not homely enough to play the nerdy girl and not nearly pretty enough to play the pretty girl".

Bell has been associated with the idea that "nerdy is the new cool", and she explains, "what was previously perceived as nerdy is now viewed as original. What I like about nerdiness, geekiness, is it doesn't really matter what you're into — it just means you're not a follower." She has also said, "I love nerds. Comic-Con junkies are the tastemakers of tomorrow. Isn't that funny? The tables have turned." Vanessa Juarez of Entertainment Weekly commented that Bell's role on Veronica Mars, Heroes and as a Star Wars fanatic in Fanboys has "solidif[ied] her placement at the center of the geek universe", while Rodney Rothman stated, "I guess she's cornered the market on losers." Bell's work is often compared to Sarah Michelle Gellar's portrayal of the titular character on the cult television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter stated that Bell was "arguably the television successor [to Gellar's portrayal of Buffy] when it comes to fighting bad guys." Bell is sometimes confused with Lauren Conrad from the show The Hills. "Yeah, sometimes fans yell, 'Hey, Lauren' to me, but usually from a distance," said Kristen.

Despite "new celebrity" status, Bell claims that she is not concerned because "no one ever recognizes [her] anyway". As Bell explains, "I hang out with Hayden quite a bit — they never take pictures of me. I just step to the side, and I push myself in front of her when she wants to get out of it, or put her in the car." Bell is a recurring guest on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, appearing in interviews as well as sketches. On the Late Late Show, she is shown to have garnered a humorous hostility towards Craig's robot skeleton sidekick Geoff Peterson, claiming that she had wanted to be Craig's sidekick on his show and taking it upon herself to cut Geoff down every chance she gets. Both Bell and Geoff Peterson appeared with Ferguson during the five Late Late shows filmed in France.

In January 2011 it was announced that Kristen would be the new face of Neutrogena.

Personal life

At age 11, Bell became a vegetarian. In an interview with PETA, Bell stated, "I have always been an animal lover. I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with — dogs and cats, for example — from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat. I always loved my Brussels sprouts!" During her time in Michigan, Bell fostered animals from Michigan Humane Society and she now supports the San Diego-based Helen Woodward Animal Center. Bell often attends fund raisers for the ASPCA and other non-profit organizations dedicated to protecting animals. She owns a Welsh Corgi-Chow Chow mix named Lola, a Welsh Corgi-Chihuahua mix named Shakey, and a black Labrador Retriever named Sadie, who was 11 years old when she was rescued from Hurricane Katrina and adopted by Bell in 2005.

She and many of those who worked on Veronica Mars, including personal friend Ryan Hansen, are involved with the charity organization Invisible Children Inc. The goal of the organization is to create awareness regarding the plight of Northern Ugandans who are caught in the midst of a civil war between the government and Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army. Bell has also done a public service announcement for Do Something's Healthy Living Campaign.

Bell supported and campaigned for Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election. Along with Rashida Jones, she visited college campuses in Missouri to discuss the candidates and encourage voter registration. Bell has shown her support for the Writers Guild of America in the writer's strike, appearing in the picket lines in December 2007 stating, "the writers are just looking for some fairness."

In 2007, Bell ended a five-year relationship with former fiancé Kevin Mann, and went on to date actor Dax Shepard. As of January 2010, she is engaged to Shepard. She told Complex magazine that dating "makes me want to vomit. And not out of grossness — OK, a little bit out of grossness, but just nerves." Bell explains, "I've always been a serial monogamist."

As she is a Detroit native, she is also an avid fan of the Detroit Red Wings hockey team.

Kate Winslet Biography and Sexy Photos

Kate Elizabeth Winslet (born 5 October 1975) is an English actress and occasional singer. She has received multiple awards and nominations. She was the youngest person to accrue six Academy Award nominations, and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Reader (2008). Winslet has been acclaimed for both dramatic and comedic work in projects ranging from period to contemporary films, and from major Hollywood productions to less publicised indie films. She has won awards from the Screen Actors Guild, British Academy of Film and Television Arts, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association among others, and has been nominated twice for an Emmy Award for television acting.

Raised in Berkshire, Winslet studied drama from childhood, and began her career in British television in 1991. She made her film debut in Heavenly Creatures (1994), for which she received her first notable critical praise. She achieved recognition for her subsequent work in a supporting role in Sense and Sensibility (1995) and for her leading role in Titanic (1997), the highest grossing film at that time.
Since 2000, Winslet's performances have continued to draw positive comments from film critics, and she has been nominated for various awards for her work in such films as Quills (2000), Iris (2001), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Finding Neverland (2004), Little Children (2006), The Reader (2008) and Revolutionary Road (2008). Her performance in the latter prompted New York magazine critic David Edelstein to describe her as "the best English-speaking film actress of her generation".The romantic comedy The Holiday and the animated film Flushed Away (both 2006) were among the biggest commercial successes of her career.

Winslet was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for Children in 2000. She has been included as a vocalist on some soundtracks of works she has performed in, and the single "What If" from the soundtrack for Christmas Carol: The Movie (2001), was a hit single in several European countries. Winslet has a daughter with her former husband, Jim Threapleton, and a son with her second husband, Sam Mendes, from whom she is separated. She lives in New York City.

Early life

Born in Reading, Berkshire, Winslet is the middle of three daughters of Sally Anne (née Bridges), a barmaid, and Roger John Winslet, a swimming pool contractor.Her parents were "jobbing actors", which led Winslet to comment that she "didn't have a privileged upbringing" and that their daily life was "very hand to mouth".Her maternal grandparents, Linda (née Plumb) and Archibald Oliver Bridges, founded and operated the Reading Repertory Theatre,and her uncle, Robert Bridges, appeared in the original West End production of Oliver!. Her older sister, Anna, and younger sister, Beth, are also actresses.[3]

Raised in an Anglican household, Winslet began studying drama at the age of 11 at the Redroofs Theatre School,a co-educational independent school in Maidenhead, Berkshire, where she was head girl.At the age of 12, Winslet appeared in a television advertisement directed by filmmaker Tim Pope for Sugar Puffs cereal. Pope said her naturalism was "there from the start".[6]

Career

1991–97

Winslet's career began on television, with a
co-starring role in the BBC children's science fiction serial Dark Season.This role was followed by appearances in the made-for-TV movie Anglo-Saxon Attitudes in 1992, the sitcom Get Back, and an episode of the medical drama Casualty in 1993.[7]

In 1992, Winslet attended a casting call for Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures in London. Winslet auditioned for the part of Juliet Hulme, a teenager who assists in the murder of the mother of her best friend, Pauline Parker (played by Melanie Lynskey). She won the role over 175 other girls.The film included Winslet's singing debut, and her a cappella version of "Sono Andati", an aria from La Bohème,was featured on the film's soundtrack.The film was released to favourable reviews in 1994 and won Jackson and partner Fran Walsh a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.Winslet was awarded an Empire Award and a London Film Critics Circle Award for British Actress of the Year for her performance.The Washington Post writer Desson Thomson commented: "As Juliet, Winslet is a bright-eyed ball of fire, lighting up every scene she’s in. She's offset perfectly by Lynskey, whose quietly smoldering Pauline completes the delicate, dangerous partnership."Speaking about her experience on a film set as an absolute beginner, Winslet noted: "With Heavenly Creatures, all I knew I had to do was completely become that person. In a way it was quite nice doing [the film] and not knowing a bloody thing."[14]
The following year, Winslet auditioned for the small but pivotal role of Lucy Steele in the adaptation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, featuring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, and Alan Rickman.She was instead cast in the second leading role of Marianne Dashwood.Director Ang Lee admitted he was initially worried about the way Winslet had attacked her role in Heavenly Creatures and thus required her to exercise tai chi, read Austen-era Gothic novels and poetry, and work with a piano teacher to fit the grace of the role.Budgeted at US$16.5 million ($23.8 million in current year dollars) the film became a financial and critical success, resulting in a worldwide box office total of US$135 million ($194.5 million) and various awards for Winslet, winning her both a BAFTA and a Screen Actors Guild Award, and nominations for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe.[12][16]

In 1996, Winslet starred in both Jude and Hamlet. In Michael Winterbottom's Jude, based on the Victorian novel Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy, she played Sue Bridehead, a young woman with suffragette leanings who falls in love with her cousin, played by Christopher Eccleston. Acclaimed among critics, it was not a success at the box office, barely grossing US$2 million ($2.8 million) worldwide.[17]Richard Corliss of Time magazine said "Winslet is worthy of [...] the camera's scrupulous adoration. She's perfect, a modernist ahead of her time [...] and Jude is a handsome showcase for her gifts."Winslet played Ophelia, Hamlet's drowned lover, in Kenneth Branagh's all star-cast film version of William Shakespeare's Hamlet. The film garnered largely positive reviews and earned Winslet her second Empire Award.[12][20]
In mid-1996, Winslet began filming James Cameron's Titanic (1997), alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.Cast as the sensitive seventeen-year-old Rose DeWitt Bukater, a fictional first-class socialite who survives the 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic, Winslet's experience was emotionally demanding."Titanic was totally different and nothing could have prepared me for it. ... We were really scared about the whole adventure. ... Jim [Cameron] is a perfectionist, a real genius at making movies. But there was all this bad press before it came out, and that was really upsetting."Against expectations, the film went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time, grossing more than US$1.843 billion ($2.6 billion) in box-office receipts worldwide,and transformed Winslet into a commercial movie star.Subsequently, she was nominated for most of the high-profile awards, winning a European Film Award.[12][25]

1998–2003
Shot prior to the release of Titanic, Hideous Kinky, a low-budget hippie romance, was Winslet's sole film of 1998.Winslet had rejected offers to play the leading roles in Shakespeare in Love (1998) and Anna and the King (1999) in favour of the role of a young English mother named Julia who moves with her daughters from London to Morocco hoping to start a new life.[26]The film garnered generally mixed reviews and received only limited distribution,resulting in a worldwide gross of US$5 million ($6.6 million).Despite the success of Titanic, the next film Winslet opted to star in was Holy Smoke! (1999), featuring Harvey Keitel, another low-budget project—much to the chagrin of her agents, who felt "miserable" about her preference of arthouse movies.[14]Feeling pressured, Winslet has said she "never saw Titanic as a springboard for bigger films or bigger pay cheques", knowing that "it could have been that, but would have destroyed [her]."The same year, she voiced Brigid in the computer animated film Faeries.[31]
In 2000, Winslet appeared in the period piece Quills with Geoffrey Rush and Joaquin Phoenix, a film inspired by the life and work of the Marquis de Sade. The actress served as somewhat of a "patron saint" of the film for being the first big name to back it, accepting the role of a chambermaid in the asylum and the courier of The Marquis' manuscripts to the underground publishers.Well-received by critics, the film garnered numerous accolades for Winslet, including nominations for SAG and Satellite Awards.The film was a modest arthouse success, averaging US$27,709 ($35,337) per screen its debut weekend, and eventually grossing US$18 million ($23 million) internationally.[33]

In 2001's Enigma, Winslet played a young woman who finds herself falling for a brilliant young World War II code breaker, played by Dougray Scott.It was her first war film, and Winslet regarded "making Enigma a brilliant experience" as she was five months pregnant at the time of the shoot, forcing some tricky camera work from the director Michael Apted.Generally well-received,Winslet was awarded a British Independent Film Award for her performance,and A. O. Scott of The New York Times described Winslet as "more crush-worthy than ever."In the same year she appeared in Richard Eyre's critically acclaimed film Iris, portraying novelist Iris Murdoch. Winslet shared her role with Judi Dench, with both actresses portraying Murdoch at different phases of her life. Subsequently, each of them was nominated for an Academy Award the following year, earning Winslet her third nomination.Also in 2001, she voiced the character Belle in the animated motion picture Christmas Carol: The Movie, based on the Charles Dickens classic novel. For the film, Winslet recorded the song "What If", which was released in November 2001 as a singlewith proceeds donated to two of Winslet's favourite charities, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and the Sargeant Cancer Foundation for Children.[38]A Europe-wide top ten hit, it reached number one in Austria, Belgium, and Ireland,number six on the UK Singles Chart,and won the 2002 OGAE Song Contest.[42]

Her next film role was in the 2003 drama The Life of David Gale, in which she played an ambitious journalist who interviews a death-sentenced professor, played by Kevin Spacey, in his final weeks before execution. The film underperformed at international box offices, garnering only half of its US$ 50,000,000 budget,and generating mostly critical reviews,with Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times calling it a "silly movie."[45]

2004–06
Following The Life of David Gale, Winslet appeared with Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), a neosurrealistic indie-drama by French director Michel Gondry. In the film, she played the role of Clementine Kruczynski, a chatty, spontaneous and somewhat neurotic woman, who decides to have all memories of her ex-boyfriend erased from her mind.The role was a departure from her previous roles, with Winslet revealing in an interview with Variety that she was initially upended about her casting in the film: "This was not the type of thing I was being offered [...] I was just thrilled that there was something he had seen in me, in spite of the corsets, that he thought was going to work for Clementine.”The film was a critical and financial success.Winslet received rave reviews for her Academy Award-nominated performance, which Peter Travers of Rolling Stone described as "electrifying and bruisingly vulnerable."[49]

Her final film in 2004 was Finding Neverland. The story of the production focused on Scottish writer J. M. Barrie (Johnny Depp) and his platonic relationship with Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (Winslet), whose sons inspired him to pen the classic play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. During promotion of the film, Winslet noted of her portrayal "It was very important for me in playing Sylvia that I was already a mother myself, because I don’t think I could have played that part if I didn’t know what it felt like to be a parent and have those responsibilities and that amount of love that you give to a child [...] and I've always got a baby somewhere, or both of them, all over my face."The film received favourable reviews and proved to be an international success, becoming Winslet's highest-grossing film since Titanic with a total of $118 million worldwide.[51][52]
In 2005, Winslet appeared in an episode of BBC's comedy series Extras as a satirical version of herself. While dressed as a nun, she was portrayed giving phone sex tips to the romantically challenged character of Maggie.Her performance in the episode led to her first nomination for an Emmy Award.In Romance & Cigarettes (2005), a musical romantic comedy written and directed by John Turturro, she played the character Tula, described by Winslet as "a slut, someone who’s essentially foulmouthed and has bad manners and really doesn’t know how to dress."Hand-picked by Turturro, who was impressed with her display of dancing ability in Holy Smoke!, Winslet was praised for her performance,which included her interpretation of Connie Francis's "Scapricciatiello (Do You Love Me Like You Kiss Me)".Derek Elley of Variety wrote: "Onscreen less, but blessed with the showiest role, filthiest one-liners, [and] a perfect Lancashire accent that's comical enough in the Gotham setting Winslet throws herself into the role with an infectious gusto."[56]

After declining an invitation to appear in Woody Allen's film Match Point (2005), Winslet stated that she wanted to be able to spend more time with her children.She began 2006 with All the King's Men, featuring Sean Penn and Jude Law. Winslet played the role of Anne Stanton, the childhood sweetheart of Jack Burden (Law). The film was critically and financially unsuccessful.[58]Todd McCarthy of Variety summed it up as "overstuffed and fatally miscast [...] Absent any point of engagement to become involved in the characters, the film feels stillborn and is unlikely to stir public excitement, even in an election year."[60]
Winslet fared far better when she joined the cast of Todd Field's Little Children, playing Sarah Pierce, a bored homemaker who has a torrid affair with a married neighbour, played by Patrick Wilson. Both her performance and the film received rave reviews; A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote: "In too many recent movies intelligence is woefully undervalued, and it is this quality—even more than its considerable beauty—that distinguishes Little Children from its peers. The result is a movie that is challenging, accessible and hard to stop thinking about. Ms. Winslet, as fine an actress as any working in movies today, registers every flicker of Sarah’s pride, self-doubt and desire, inspiring a mixture of recognition, pity and concern that amounts, by the end of the movie, to something like love. That Ms. Winslet is so lovable makes the deficit of love in Sarah’s life all the more painful."For her work in the film, she was honored with a Britannia Award for British Artist of the Year from BAFTA/LA, a Los Angeles-based offshoot of the BAFTA Awards.and nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress, and at 31, became the youngest actress to ever garner five Oscar nominations.[63]

She followed Little Children with a role in Nancy Meyers' romantic comedy The Holiday, also starring Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and Jack Black. In it she played Iris, a British woman who temporarily exchanges homes with an American woman (Diaz). Released to a mixed reception by critics,the film became Winslet's biggest commercial success in nine years, grossing more than US$205 million worldwide.Also in 2006, Winslet provided her voice for several smaller projects. In the CG-animated Flushed Away, she voiced Rita, a scavenging sewer rat who helps Roddy (Hugh Jackman) escape from the city of Ratropolis and return to his luxurious Kensington origins. A critical and commercial success, the film collected US$177,665,672 at international box offices.[66]

2007–present

In 2007, Winslet reunited with Leonardo DiCaprio to film Revolutionary Road (2008), directed by her husband Sam Mendes. Winslet had suggested that both should work with her on a film adaptation of the 1961 novel of the same name by Richard Yates after reading the script by Justin Haythe.Resulting in both "a blessing and an added pressure" on-set, the reunion was her first experience working with Mendes.Portraying a couple in a failing marriage in the 1950s, DiCaprio and Winslet watched period videos promoting life in the suburbs to prepare themselves for the film,which earned them favorable reviews.In his review of the film, David Edelstein of New York magazine stated that "[t]here isn’t a banal moment in Winslet’s performance—not a gesture, not a word. Is Winslet now the best English-speaking film actress of her generation? I think so."Winslet was awarded a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for her performance, her seventh nomination from the Golden Globes.[12]

Also released in late 2008, the film competed against Winslet's other project, a film adaptation of Bernhard Schlink's 1995 novel The Reader, directed by Stephen Daldry and featuring Ralph Fiennes and David Kross in supporting roles. Originally the first choice for her role, she was initially not able to take on the role due to a scheduling conflict with Revolutionary Road, and Nicole Kidman replaced her.A month after filming began, however, Kidman left the film due to her pregnancy before filming of her had begun, enabling Winslet to rejoin the film.Employing a German accent, Winslet portrayed a former Nazi concentration camp guard who has an affair with a teenager (Kross) who, as an adult, witnesses her war crimes trial.She later said the role was difficult for her, as she was naturally unable "to sympathise with an SS guard."While the film garnered mixed reviews in general,Winslet received favorable reviews for her performance.The following year, she earned her sixth Academy Award nomination and went on to win the Best Actress award, the BAFTA Award for Best Actress, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress, and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.[12]

In 2011, Winslet headlined in the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce, a small screen adaptation of James M. Cain's 1941 novel of the same name, directed by Todd Haynes.Co-starring Guy Pearce and Evan Rachel Wood, she portrayed a self-sacrificing mother during the Great Depression who finds herself separated from her husband and falling in love with a new man, all the while trying to earn her narcissistic daughter's love and respect. Broadcast to moderate ratings,the five-part series earned generally favorable reviews,with Salon.com calling it a "quiet, heartbreaking masterpiece".Winslet was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance.[78]

Winslet has been cast in the Steven Soderbergh disaster film Contagion.She will also join Jodie Foster and Christoph Waltz in Roman Polanski's Carnage, an adaptation of the play God of Carnage,and star alongside Josh Brolin in Jason Reitman's adaptation of Joyce Maynard's 2009 novel Labor Day.[81]

Personal life


While on the set of Dark Season, Winslet met actor and writer Stephen Tredre, with whom she had a four-and-a-half-year relationship.Winslet and Tredre remained close after their separation in 1995.He died of bone cancer during the opening week of Titanic, causing her to miss the film's Los Angeles premiere to attend his funeral in London.She and Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio have remained close friends since the filming.[85]

On 22 November 1998, Winslet married director Jim Threapleton, whom she met while on the set of Hideous Kinky in 1997.[86]They have a daughter, Mia Honey Threapleton,who was born on 12 October 2000 in London.Winslet and Threapleton divorced on 13 December 2001.[88]

Following her separation from Threapleton, Winslet began a relationship with director Sam Mendes,and she married him on 24 May 2003 on the island of Anguilla.Their son, Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, was born on 22 December 2003 in New York City.Winslet and Mendes announced their separation in March 2010.[89]

Mendes was scheduled to fly on American Airlines Flight 77, which was hijacked on 11 September 2001 and subsequently crashed into the Pentagon.In October 2001, Winslet was on a flight with her daughter, Mia, when a passenger who claimed to be a terrorist stood up and shouted, "We are all going to die".As a result of these incidents, Winslet and Mendes never fly together on the same aircraft as they fear leaving their children parentless.[90]

Winslet's weight fluctuations over the years have been well documented by the media.[82]She has been outspoken about her refusal to allow Hollywood to dictate her weight.[85]In February 2003, the British edition of GQ magazine published photographs of Winslet that had been digitally altered to make her look dramatically thinner.Winslet issued a statement that the alterations were made without her consent, saying, "I just didn't want people to think I was a hypocrite and that I'd suddenly lost 30 lbs. or whatever".GQ subsequently issued an apology.She won a libel suit in 2009 against the British tabloid The Daily Mail after it printed that she had lied about her exercise regimen.Winslet stated that she had requested an apology to demonstrate her commitment to the views that she has always expressed regarding women's body issues, namely that women should accept their appearance with pride.[93]

Winslet narrated the documentary A mother's courage: talking back to autism, which was generally released on September 24, 2010, after airing on HBO in April of the same year. Her involvement in the documentary led to her founding the non-profit organization The Golden Hat, whose mission is to eliminate barriers for people with autism.[94]In 2011, Winslet received the Yo Dona award for Best Humanitarian Work for her work with The Golden Hat.[96]

Awards and nominations

Winslet won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in The Reader (2008). She won two Golden Globe Awards in the same year: Best Actress (Drama) for Revolutionary Road and Best Supporting Actress for The Reader. She has won two BAFTA Awards: Best Actress for The Reader, and Best Supporting Actress for Sense and Sensibility (1995). She has earned a total of six Academy Award nominations, seven Golden Globe nominations, and seven BAFTA nominations.[91][97][98]

She has received numerous awards from other organisations, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Supporting Actress for Iris (2001) and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for Sense and Sensibility and The Reader. Premiere magazine named her portrayal of Clementine Kruczynski in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) as the 81st greatest film performance of all time.[99]

Academy Award nomination milestones

Winslet was 26 when she received her third Academy Award nomination, for Iris, just missing the mark of Natalie Wood, who received her third nomination at age 25.She set the mark as the youngest actor to receive five nominations, at age 31, for Little Children (2006). She surpassed Bette Davis, who was 33 when she received her fifth nomination for her performance in The Little Foxes (1941).With her Best Actress nomination for The Reader, Winslet became the youngest actor to receive six Oscar nominations. At age 33, Winslet passed the mark Davis, one year older, set with Now, Voyager (1942).[102]

Winslet received Academy Award nominations as the younger versions of the characters played by fellow nominees Gloria Stuart, as Rose, in Titanic (1997)and Judi Dench, as Iris Murdoch, in Iris.These are the only instances of the younger and older versions of a character in the same film both yielding Academy Award nominations, thus making Winslet the only actor to twice share an Oscar nomination with another for portraying the same character.[103]

When she was not nominated for her work in Revolutionary Road, Winslet became only the second actress to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress (Drama) without getting an Oscar nomination for the same performance (Shirley MacLaine was the first for Madame Sousatzka [1988], and she won the Golden Globe in a three-way tie). Academy rules allow an actor to receive no more than one nomination in a given category; as the Academy nominating process determined that Winslet's work in The Reader would be considered a lead performance—unlike the Golden Globes, which considered it a supporting performance—she could not also receive a Best Actress nomination for Revolutionary Road.[105]

Awards for other work

In 2000, Winslet won a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for Children for Listen To the Storyteller.[106]She was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for playing herself in a 2005 episode of Extras.[108]

Kate Winslet Calls Herself 'Hypocrite of the Decade'

Kate Winslet, Kate Winslet sexy photos, Kate Winslet sexy hollywood, Kate Winslet sexy artistIt is known that celebrities sometimes things they later regret saying. Certainly they are in the public eye and constantly under control, so I can understand if the average pressure of all the attention they say bad things sometimes. Yet it seems very difficult to forgive most of the players misspeaking! But then there are the celebrities that are just too cute that we forget their little faux-pas ... and one of them happens to Kate Winslet.

In the September issue of V Magazine, the actress admits she regrets every saying in February 2009 that they do not result in more nude scenes. But fear not, for all the queen naked back to his statement and said: "It definitely makes me the hypocrite of the decade. I'm just going to stop saying it." But hey, if the got, shoplifting - Right? Her latest nude scenes were in the miniseries Emmy Mildred Pierce, and even if it was a connoisseur of camp all over the camera, she says she always gets very nervous when they do. She said. "I hate it! Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say 'Oh f---' let's do it,' and boom! If you complain about it or procrastinate it's not going to go away. It's a profoundly bizarre thing to do." Let it be a lesson for all -.. not for your homework, chores or nudity to procrastinate.

Kate likes the prospect of a challenge when it comes to a new project and we hope they are still able to inspire their pieces. Infection star said: "I hope I am s---ting myself over the characters I play for the rest of my life, because the day I go, 'Oh yeah, that's going to be a piece of pie', why f--ing bother? If you do that, you do not learn."

Contagion by Steven Soderbergh

"Contagion" by Steven Soderbergh and written by Scott Burns, Z (IT) managed to show us how fast a virus spread. It also makes you believe that agoraphobia is a bad idea.

Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow) returns to Minneapolis for a business trip to Hong Kong. Two days later she was dead at the hospital and the doctors tell him, shocked and grieving man (Matt Damon), they have no idea why.

Soon other people are going to the same mysterious symptoms: fever, dry cough, with seizures, intracranial hemorrhage (ouch) and finally ... Death. Not a good way to go.

This nasty virus quickly spreads ... Chicago, London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, China, and Los Angeles. The number of cases is increasing rapidly ... one case four, then six, then hundreds, thousands and possibly millions.

A global pandemic explodes. Well, sounds exciting, right? Not so much.

It does not take long to get bogged down "contamination" in the scientific mumbo jumbo, government conspiracy cheated ... with Jewish law bloggers, and history compulsory Matt Damon B, that his dead wife in anger against him and his daughter that she did not lock lips with a dorky friend.

I love movies and I was expected pandemic really love it. Unfortunately, I found my mind wandering ... Kate Winslet is an excellent reflection on the "American" accent. Miss Winslet plays Dr. Erin Mears, a CDC staff in the field by his colleague Dr. Cheever (Laurence Fishburne) is sent to try to stop the spread of the virus. You talk about what is happening.

The rest of the cast, including Marion Cotillard (Dr. Orantes Leonora) has not really given much to do ... except for the worried look and then look very, very concerned, because the number of deaths.

John and I actually came pretty close in our bagel evaluation. Watch our videos to see how we bagels contagion "was.

The film opens in theaters Friday, September 9, 2011.

Buddy Holly Day Wednesday in Los Angeles

What was planned as a long-awaited ceremony in Hollywood on Wednesday for Charles Hardin "Buddy" Holly has become a concert in Los Angeles and the celebration draws many of the most prestigious in the music industry star.

The Lubbock born Holly died at the age of 22, recorded with more than two dozen hits in the remaining two years before his death. He gets his well deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on his 75th Birthday - but there are many more.

Buddy Holly Day Wednesday in Los Angeles, agreed and approved by the Los Angeles City Council.

■ The Stars ceremony will attract a number of celebrity supporters and participants with a subsequent invitation-only reception of one of Capitol Records' historic recording studios. Holly star is close to the 1750 Vine Street, in front of the historic Capitol Records Tower.

■ There is an even bigger party on Wednesday evening at the Music Box on Hollywood Boulevard, where the producer Peter Asher and interpretation of the publication of Asher's Buddy Holly tribute CD, "Listen to me. Buddy Holly"

Some of the 16 artists Holly's music on the CD, and many others will be re-interpreted in the concert, which will later filmed for PBS broadcast performance.

Confirmed participants include Paul Anka, Michelle Branch, Chris Isaak, Lyle Lovett, Raul Malo, Graham Nash, Stevie Nicks, Boz Scaggs and Patrick Stump.

Lubbock native Holly is the only member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1986 induction class of the first meeting is not a star on the famous Los Angeles street.

The other members of this class are Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers and Little Richard.

Kevin Magowan wanted to correct the error.

The long-time fan of Buddy Holly made a pilgrimage from Los Angeles to Lubbock in 2009.

He went to Dallas widow Maria Elena Holly Holly meet, and tell her that he wanted to help Buddy get the stars.

She gave him permission to represent her.

Mary knew that if the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is not present to accept the nomination package without the $ 25,000 cost for the creation and installation of all 300-pounds, and used for general maintenance.

"I thought this was for me to do is to nominate myself for my husband and the fee payable would be sticky," she told the AJ.

No company was willing to pay the full $ 25,000.

However, when Paul McCartney's MPL Communications, Peer Music and Universal Records showed they could split the fee in three ways, all agreed to finance the effort.

Magowan also played an important role in finding the best place for Buddy star: near the Beatles. In fact, the block next to Buddy star Paul McCartney, who is not present at the time and had to be taken aside.

Like the West Texas Walk of Fame in Lubbock, it is necessary to every living
Jubilar a personal appearance at their induction ceremony.

The star induction ceremony always takes place at 11.30 hours and 13.30 hours Texas time clock, after Ana Martinez at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

Lubbock KCBD-TV is a live feed of the Buddy Holly-star ceremony on a "watch party" at 1:30 Wednesday at the clock Buddy Holly Center, 1801 Crickets Ave can be viewed.

Usain Bolt leads Jamaica to relay world record


The world's fastest man Usain Bolt 4x100m relay anchored Jamaica to gold in world record for the last race of the 13th World Athletics Championships on Sunday.

As so often before, Bolt crossed the line to fend for themselves and again the performances of all cast in shadow.

Mo Farah was clinching 5,000 m gold for Britain in a great race, that a suitable climax, a dramatic Daegu playing great show, but now that the brace must Bolt and his compatriots, the first world record for the World Cup in the first sense, his last event.

Looking at the clock, it seemed 50 meters as fast as Bolt crossed the finish line, his baton high into the crowd and threw the infectious celebration began.

His dance is only be described as world class, too.

"For me it was but it quickly. We have just that. I'm proud of my team," said Bolt after setting the record 37.04.

Mr. Monk and the Mug Shot


Gary Mugford at Mug Shots were about MR. Monk on the bench a great review. He said in part:

Goldberg looks forward to the freedom at the end of his TV series. That is clear. It is strange to find this album, for Natalie-centric, while in fact they told each book, and it is their voice in your head all the time. But in the previous 11 books in the series, Monk was the voice of most of the time.

[...] As reported in the late-night infomercials, to say, but wait, there's more. While Natalie is doing her P.I. with training wheels, there are other murders for Adrian Monk to solve. And she does it solve. Only for a suit from the top of the police to be invalid solutions because there is no evidence that he is right. Knowing who and what passes through a series of murders appears frustratingly inadequate, a "Here's what happened" moment, without the payment / conviction.

Natalie and Detective Amy Devlin rescue of the case by thinking and working outside the box. We see Natalie working "undercover" for the first time. And I bet you will not be the last.

The question is posed in the book, what happened to Natalie, if something happens to Monk? You could return to her family. But not now. We know the answer.

He's right, I have fun with the latest books MONK. Because the TV series ended, I have a few chances with the characters and there is always the series fresh ... I thought if you read all the books, you think the changes as a natural evolutionary step in their message, see (especially with Natalie, plays an arc that began with MR. MONK and dirty COP).

MR. PATROL monk comes in January, to build at least on the issues and events in MR. MONK on the couch. And the person I am now writing, MR. MONK is a mess, is a direct continuation of the PATROL (in the same way that MR. MONK miserable was a direct sequel to MR. Monk Germany).

I'm just a vague idea where the next book is ... But it's nice to be able to characters in a way that I did not when I was able to ensure the continuity of the TV show drive to work.

Karen Gillan Has Wild, Naked Night Worthy of 'Dr. Who'


This scene begins with Doctor Who star Karen Gillan stuck in the hallway that connects to the Ace Hotel New York. Because the pool of God with boldness assistant Amy Gillan knows something about being in tough situations, but there is a slight problem at 7 am and can not find the door, which "tries. Because it is super handy.


And oh yeah, it's really naked.

Sounds like the initial episode of fiction written by doctors and creeping mainly fan, but unfortunately for Karen Gillan, what actually happened. He and his PhD, who co-starred in a promotional trip to Manhattan and seems to be rather small Gillan abuse at a party for the crew.

Pleasant hotel guests drunken shenanigans Gillan explains:

I went to the window, and then I saw a naked woman, trying to wrap a towel around him, and not having much luck. He started moaning and knocking on my door. See that anywhere, sleep with a towel covering it.

This really sucks for him this story? I never hear the end of "Bet you wish that TARDIS!" Joke.

(Also, not a word on the carpet in accordance with the curtains I know what dirty bird you are interested in. ..)

If the rest "Karen gets Shitfaced and try to get into the wrong hotel room" fanfic played a typical episode, the door opened, and soon fell into the desire of fans to the world's largest doctor (Harold and still lives with his mother), but in reality Hotel security, which finally helped him back to his room.

BBC spokesman said the company, to "not aware of this alleged incident," but I think they should upgrade the English euphemism for rehabilitation, as well as girlfriend looks like she has a problem. I'm just saying, maybe the next event could feature a doctor sends his assistant an ideal place to relax in a country where he could get out of his ... You know, "fatigue".
