Kate Winslet won’t sign naked pictures of herself, sorry

Kate Winslet was acting for several years before Titanic was released in 1997, but it was that film that really shot her into the spotlight and helped her become her generation’s Meryl Streep (because let’s face it, she SO is). Kate has never been shy about getting the ladies out on camera, but Titanic had that infamous “Draw me like one of your French girls, Jack” scene where she sprawled on a couch and let the camera focus on her boobs for a while. That scene has stuck in the minds of many since, and apparently people still ask her to sign blown up stills of it OR their own personal drawings. NOT COOL, people.

As she told Yahoo! Movies:

“I don’t sign that [picture]. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that? People ask me to sign that [picture] a lot.

“There’s a photo of it as well that someone has lifted from a still of the film, and that photo gets passed around too. I’m like ‘No! I didn’t mean for it to be a photograph that I would end up seeing still 17 years later.”

LOL, poor Kate. I can see why it might be slightly uncomfortable to sign a picture of your naked self, but homegirl really seems to be tortured by her Titanic legacy.

Why did Kate Winslet give son Bear the middle name “Blaze”?

Well, the answer is far more literal than you might think. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that airs today, Kate Winslet discussed the motivation for naming her third child Bear Blaze Winslet, which is… insane, you have to admit.

Turns out, “Blaze” came from the fact that she and husband (and Bear’s father) Ned Rocknroll met during a fire on Necker Island at Ned’s uncle, Richard Branson’s house back in 2011. So… that’s that.

Kate also talks about surviving her first earthquake (during which she pumped breast milk, apparently) and the fact that she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – a picture from which you can see below. Is Kate Winslet ever NOT beautiful? I mean, damn.

Kate Winslet’s getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Y’all know I love me some Kate Winslet, so it’s pretty excellent news that she’s finally getting her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony will take place in LA next Monday, which is a shame since I’m only there until Saturday and I’d have stopped by to say hello. You know, because we’re BFF.

Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremony, said in a statement:

“We are so happy that Kate Winslet will be here on our famous Boulevard of Dreams receiving her well-deserved star.

“We’ve seen Kate shine in her roles and fans around the world have been anxiously waiting for this special day to come.”

LOL, I mean, I think it’s nice and all, but “anxiously awaiting this special day” is a bit of an overstatement. Does anyone actually care about the Walk of Fame? I’m sure the stars are pretty stoked about it and maybe see it as an acknowledgment of their achievements, but you know, it’s not everything.

In any case, glad to see Kate being treated like the royalty she is. She’s the 2,520th star to get her star.
