Friends for life.

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio have been tight since their Titanic debut back in 1997, despite all Leonardo’s smarmy dating grossness. Kate’s always been gracious, so it’s hard to get the full story. In any case, she’s still singing his praises and told People that he’s the same…but handsomer.

“He’s a solid, loyal person,” Winslet says. “He’s a great friend, he always has been, and not just to me, but to everyone around him. He still has friends he had when we made Titanic. In many ways he hasn’t changed a bit, but in other ways he absolutely has changed.”

And what else, oh glorious Kate?

“He’s a stronger actor in this moment than he’s ever been,” says Winslet, who also costarred with DiCaprio in 2008’s Revolutionary Road. “I think he’s more handsome than he’s ever been. And he feels, to me, the most settled he’s ever felt, in himself, right now, which is quite strange, really, given that there’s a lot happening around him.”

Kate might be thankful to have Leo as a friend, but sounds like it should be the other way around!

Kate Winslet reveals she was bullied as a kid

Kate Winslet reveals she was bullied as a kid

Kate Winslet is a gorgeous actress in our generation, so it’s hard to see why anyone would bully her over her looks, but apparently that’s the way it went down when she was younger. Kids can be so cruel, can’t they?

Kate opened up again about being teased when she was younger. In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, she said, “I was teased for how I looked. In part, yeah, because I was quite stocky as a child. And I was very much teased for that.”

She went on to say, “When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life. I only heard negatives. That’s very damaging because then you’re programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinize yourself and how you look.”

She has since made it her mission to help others build their own self confidence. She said, “You know, we walk down red carpets. You know, it’s part of the job. But I think I feel very strongly that it’s important to also say to young girls that we don’t look like that all the time.”

She even admits to dropping off her kids in a bathrobe. She added, “I even do the school run in my dressing gown. And pajamas. Yup, absolutely.”

Kate Winslet talks about banning social media at her home

Kate Winslet talks about banning social media at her home

About two weeks ago, Kate Winslet gave an interview where she talked about banning computers in her home. Now, she’s talking in a new interview about how she has banned social media.

She revealed, “It has a huge impact on young women’s self-esteem, because all they ever do is design themselves for people to like them. And what comes along with that? Eating disorders. And that makes my blood boil. And is the reason we don’t have any social media in our house.”

She has three children, but wants them to all play the old-fashioned way – outside!

She said, “Let your kids climb trees. Take the device out of their hands. Play Monopoly! You go to a cafe and grownups are at one end of the table and children the other, on devices, not looking up.”

She added, “It takes every member of the family to be a member, and there are too many interruptions these days – and devices are a huge interruption.”

Do you agree with what she has to say on the matter?

Kate Winslet has banned computers from her house

Kate Winslet has banned computers from her house

Kate Winslet has revealed that she has banned computers in her house and doesn’t let her children use laptops, regular computers or tablets.

In a new interview she said, “They don’t have computers because we don’t really do that in my house. You have to be a bit careful with that stuff with children because then they can become addicted to it like we all are.”

She went on to say, “I want them to be kids but it’s a hard fight when they say ‘But so and so’s got one, why can’t I have one?’ I say, ‘Well, because you can go and climb that tree instead.’ So it is a quite difficult fight for a parent to fight, but we’re winning.”

When speaking about her life to The Daily Mirror, she said, “I have experienced moments in my life when I’ve had to work hard to come out on the other side. It makes me so grateful to have strength and positivity. There’s no hippy-ish, funky stuff. I just believe in being positive.”

She added, “I’m happiest when I’m with my little family and we all wake up in the morning and everyone piles into bed and climbs on top of each other and someone has the great idea of ‘Oh, let’s put on a cartoon’ and Ned says ‘Let’s make some coffee.’ Those moments are when I’m so happy.”
