Kate Winslet Talks Divorce, Marriage, and MotherhoodDresden Shumaker
Kate Winslet is gracing the cover of this April’s Harper’s Bazaar UK. Kate, a mother of two, is stunning in a black and white cover photo fittingly captioned, “KATE WINSLET ROCKNROLL BRIDE“. In December of 2012 Kate quietly married Ned Rocknroll. Ned is the nephew of Sir Richard Branson and works in his Uncle’s public relations department.
Three years ago Kate and her then husband of seven years, Sam Mendes, shocked fans by sharing that they had split up. Since then Kate has been in and out of the romance limelight. She met Ned while vacationing on Necker Island with her then model boyfriend Louis Dowle.
In the April issue of Bazaar Kate talks about how she found Ned and “about the abiding inner strength motherhood has taught her”.
From the article, “I think I can see more clearly now—about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played—and I’m grateful for that.”
In the article she also talks about what it was like to have an audience with Queen Elizabeth II. Last November the Queen awarded Kate the CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).
Winslet shared that the Queen asked her how she liked acting. “I said yes I liked it but not as much as being a mother. She said, ‘it is the best job’.”
Kate will next be seen in Jason Reitman’s thriller Labor Day. Starring along side Kate are Josh Brolin and Tobey Maguire. From IMDB The story of Labor Day is: “depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.”
The Harper’s Bazaar website is featuring a stunning auto play video with behind the scenes footage of the Kate Winslet shoot for April’s issue.
