Massachusetts Locals Do NOT Like Kate Winslet!

Massachusetts natives do NOT appreciate Kate Winslet‘s attitude while she stays in their state!

Winslet filmed her new movie Labor Day in the small town of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts recently, and shocked excited townspeople with her attitude!

“Kate was so rude, she never once acknowledged any of us, I was devastated,” fan Shanna Swan reported.  “She gave dirty looks to people in my town who waited hours to see her.”

Kate refused to meet Shanna and bunches of other adoring fans who met her black Cadillac in order to catch a glimpse of the star.

“She always plays such warm people on the big screen, I thought she would be kind, so when she was mean, I was crushed,” Shanna said. “I watched The Titantic 13 times when I was 12 years old, and Kate wouldn’t even look up for a second to acknowledge we were all adoring her.”

Radar reports it- but I don’t want to believe it!

JUST IN: Kate Winslet’s STUNNING Vanity Fair cover!

Kate Winslet is a very vocal advocate of natural beauty, which she consistently promotes a healthy attitude towards body image. In the new issue of Vanity Fair Italia, Kate opens up about her famous figure.

A career spanning 20 years that has gained her what no other actress ever dreamed of: six nominations for the Academy Awards and one Oscar. And all this before she turned 37. After her great year in 2009, her over exposition at the latest Venice Film Festival in September 2011 (CarnageContagion and the tv series Mildred Pierce) and the new 3D-converted release of Titanic to celebrate the fifteenth year of the famous movie, this may be the reason why we won’t see much of her this year. A kick back, but perhaps also the chance for a first, small, look back on life. Kate Winslet talks about this to Vanity Fair, which dedicates her the cover of its May 30th issue.

You are often talking about your “ordinary life”; is such a life actually possible?

I have always lived an ordinary life, and always will. It’s who and what has to do with my job that makes it “unordinary”. I cook, go to the supermarket, pick my children up at school. You have surely read something about it regarding my life.

Yes, I actually have. About your being normal and ordinary, a full literature has been written.

And it’s all true. I am aware that, since my career started so early and was lived so publicly, there are people who don’t stop wondering about me and how I actually lead my life. How does she deal with her children? Where do she leave them? My children are with me all the time. Period.
Another Kate Winslet classic: her fight in the name of all the women who do not wear XS. Bored of talking about it?

Better say that I’m bored of what it means that we are still here talking about it: it means that nothing has changed. Otherwise, no, I believe it is important to go on insisting that normality is not what we are exposed to. Honestly, among my acquaintances there is no woman wearing XS. No, sorry, there is one: my daughter. The point is that Mia is 11 years old.

Do remarks on your weight bother you?

No more. It’s one of those things I learned quickly to ignore. Once it was different, it hurt me. When I was twenty I pretended it didn’t bother me, but I felt very bad, I did. In front of journalists and the public I acted superior, but I was dying inside. Now everything is different. It takes time, but you can learn it.

And how did you learn?

I took the hardest way: smashing my face against it.

For a woman who has been fighting with weight all of her life, it’s harder.

I know what you mean, and it’s true that you need much time to get rid of the fat girl you once were, but – you know – I am sincerely grateful for my buttocks. Wow, isn’t this a wonderful line!

She is just so beautiful! Love her!

Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” makes Kate Winslet want to vomit.

So how does Kate Winslet feel when she hears Celine Dion’s “Titanic” song “My Heart Will Go On”? “Like throwing up,” the Oscar-winner admits.

“No, I shouldn’t say that,” Winslet added after realizing what she had said. “No, actually, I do feel like throwing up.”

“I wish I could say, ‘Oh listen, everybody! It’s the Celine Dion song!’ But I don’t,” Winslet admitted. “I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll.”

Winslet went on to explain that every time she walks into a bar or a restaurant with a pianist, they never miss an opportunity to start playing the notes. “It’s thrilling for people to surprise me with the Celine Dion song,” she laughed.

I can totally understand her feelings towards the song. It makes sense to me!

Kate Winslet And Billy Zane Attend ‘Titanic 3D’ Screening With James Cameron

Kate Winslet and her former ‘Titanic‘ co-star Billy Zane were on hand to support the film’s 3D re-release in London.  Here they are leaving their hotel with director James Cameron to head over to London’s Royal Albert Hall for the UK premiere.

Noticeably absent is Kate’s former leading man Leonardo DiCaprio.  I have to admit I’m a little disappointed that he didn’t show.  Maybe he’ll attend the L.A. premiere instead?

LOVE Kate’s Jenny Packham dress – she is STUNNING.

Leonardo DiCaprio reveals he almost turned down ‘Titanic’ for the lead in ‘Boogie Nights’

Here’s a new interview with Leonardo DiCaprio from The Sun. The interview talks about the women in his life. His mom, his girlfriend (sorta?) and Kate Winslet. He reveals he almost turned down Titanic for Boogie Nights. How awful would that have been! (The role eventually went to Mark Wahlberg, who did surprisingly well.)

Leo on his mom: “My mom, Irmelin, taught me the value of life. Her own life was saved by my grandmother during World War Two. When she was a toddler a broken leg had landed her in a German hospital. Refugees and soldiers were also in the hospital and she ended up contracting several major illnesses and stayed for two and a half years. My grandmother (Helene, who died in 2008, aged 93) came every day and nursed her back to health — the nurses did not have time. They basically left her for dead. When you see a picture of her, it’s heartbreaking. It brings tears to my eyes knowing what she has been through in her life. I have a picture, her first photograph, with this tiny little skirt. She is emaciated with a big belly. She had a belly full of worms.”

Parental guidance: “You do need parental guidance and I was in a great position with both my mum and dad. They split when I was a baby but even though I stayed with my mom they were both very much involved in my upbringing. It means I can enjoy wide interests. It made me want to travel, scuba dive, collectart, take classes in art and every place I travel I check out the museums. I have enjoyed watching wildlife in Africa and South America, far from Hollywood. My mom also taught me to get everything in perspective. I never got to the point when I was mean and cruel to people.”

He’s a clown for hire: “”I realize that I do not change the course of history. I am an actor, I do a movie, that’s the end of it. You have to realize we are just clowns for hire. After I had success it was great, at first, not to worry about money. It was on my mind when I was growing up. Just being able to buy my grandmother some scarves she wanted and not have to think about it was a sign of good times. It sounds corny but it gave me happiness at the time.”

Leo’s loves: “My first love? Boy, I don’t even remember. I suppose if I’d found my true love I would be married right now, wouldn’t I?”

Leo‘s turnoffs: “Pretentious women really turn me off. Vindictive women, too. So do opportunistic women. I think what turns me on about a girl is what most men find attractive — which is something genuine about them. Being a good person.”

He did Titanic because of Kate Winslet: “Titanic? I would love to say I predicted it would be one of the biggest hits in film history. I didn’t — and wondered whether I should do it at all. I resisted it for a long time because I had been offered the film Boogie Nights (about the 1970s porn industry, a role finally taken by Mark Wahlberg). The fact that Kate Winslet said “yes” was the final decider. She was awesome. We were definitely shoulders for each other to lean on. We had to be partners on the film. All the complaining in the world was done between us two, so we did not have to vent it on anyone else. But I am so glad to be part of that movie. Years from now, people will still be watching that film. I am part of something historical, in a lot of ways. It gave me so many opportunities, as an actor, to steer the course of my own destiny. I was able to take both my mother and grandmother to the world premiere of Titanic in London — one of my proudest moments.”

Leonardo is currently dating Erin Heatherton, a 22-year-old Victoria’s Secret model. Turns out she’s not his true love! Wonder how that felt when she read it. Even if they weren’t saying they loved each other – it would still sting a bit to read this if you were dating him.
