“I think my days are a bit numbered for doing nudity,” she said. “I’m just not comfortable doing it anymore. It’s not even really a question of age, actually. There comes a time when people are going to be like, ‘Oh, there she is again.’ She jokes that it’s not fair for cameramen to have to work to get the best angles as her body changes.
Ms Winslet has a daughter, Mia, 20, with her first husband, Jim Threapleton, a director she met on the set of “Hideous Kinky”. She has a son, Joe, 17, with Sam Mendes, her second husband. And she also has a son, Bear, 7, with her current husband, who took over his original name, Edward Abel Smith, from his playful pseudonym, Ned Rocknroll.
“He added ‘Winslet’ as one of his middle names, just because the kids have Winslet,” the actress said. “When we all travel together, having this name on the passport makes life easier.” (Bear’s middle name is Blaze, after the fire Kate and Ned escaped that burned down the British Virgin Island home of Richard Branson, her husband’s uncle.)
“He’s the super sexy, superhuman, stay-at-home dad,” she said of her husband, as she smiled happily. “He takes care of us, especially me. I said to him earlier: “Neddy, can you do something for me?” He just said ‘Anything’. “She passed out, noting that her long hair now made her look like an” ocean warrior. “
She starts to sing, humming that they go together like “shama lama ding dong”. “He’s an absolutely amazing life partner,” she said. “I am so, so, so lucky. For a severely dyslexic man, as he is, he’s good at testing me online. It’s so hard for him to read aloud, but he does it anyway.
She added that “he had not particularly planned to meet and marry a woman who is in the public eye and who has therefore been so judged.” She finds it funny that instead of being rock’n’roll, he is very Zen. “He’s a vegan, does yoga, breaths, and swims in cold water.”
