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.”

Kate Winslet is excited to be 40, but doesn’t feel it

Kate Winslet is excited to be 40, but doesn't feel it

Kate Winslet turns 40-years-old today, but in the pages of “The Edit”, she reveals that she doesn’t feel her age at all. Still, she says that she welcomes the big 4-0 with open arms.

She revealed, “I feel like the past two years have been different for me, deliberately so. I really wanted to mix it up a bit, and feel that I was going full pelt towards 40 having done as much as I could: pushed myself, challenged myself, exhausted myself, had as much fun as possible. The last two years of my life have put a different sort of rocket fuel up my backside.”

In her new movie “The Dressmaker”, she plays Liam Hemsworth’s love interest. Of that, she said, “I did say to Jocelyn [Moorehouse, the director], ‘Are we going to get away with this?’ And she said, ‘Yeah, yeah, he looks older than he is.’ Anyway, I don’t feel old. I feel excited about being 40.””

She admitted to the magazine, “You can get away with a lot more in your twenties. You can get away with having one too many vodka tonics, and you can wake up in the morning and not have a puffy face. I couldn’t go out now and get rip-roaring drunk. I’d take a week to recover and I value my life too much. Plus, I have children.”

Winslet also said people who don’t think women get more beautiful with age baffle her. She said, “Confidence comes with age, and looking beautiful comes from the confidence someone has in themselves.”

If you’re wondering what comes next for the actress, she gave us the scoop. She added, “I would like to play a man at some point. I think it would be an interesting challenge.”

Kate Winslet keeps her Oscar WHERE?

Kate Winslet keeps her Oscar WHERE?

Kate Winslet keeps her Oscar statue in her bathroom, but her reasoning is downright hilarious.

She said in a new interview that she keeps the gold statue in her bathroom so that guests can give acceptance speeches in the mirror. How funny!

she said, “The whole point is for everybody to pick it up and go, ‘I’d like to thank my son and my dad’ – and you can always tell when someone has, because they’re in there a little bit longer… They’ll come out looking slightly pink-cheeked. It’s hysterical.”

In the interview, she also talked about her two divorces. She said, “I didn’t plan on it being that way. It hasn’t been easy, you know. No one really knows what has happened in my life. No one really knows why my first marriage didn’t last; no one knows why my second didn’t. And I’m proud of those silences.”

Still, she is super happy with her third husband Ned Rocknroll. She added, “Thank God for Ned. He’s just so incredibly supportive and he’s so much fun. He’s absolutely everything to me.”

I seriously want to visit her house and make a pit stop in the bathroom!!! CALL ME KATE!
