Kate Winslet is a beautiful goddess who can do no wrong (yes, that’s sarcasm), but her pedestal fell a few notches this week when she began offering thoughts on – of all god-forsaken topics – Miley Cyrus. You see, Kate has a young daughter of her own, so seeing stars like Miley go off the deep end is concerning to her as a mother, and she wonders what Miley’s fate will be.
“You hear horror stories where you think, ‘God, who’s looking after these people and why does it seem like they’re losing their way?’
“I mean, you think about someone like Miley Cyrus , and I said to my daughter the other day, ‘I’m this close to opening my mouth about what’s going on with that girl’.
“Who is actually saying, ‘Stop for a second. What do you want, who are you?’ I’ve just been very lucky that I’ve always been quite comfortable with who I am.”
Oh dear, that sounded a bit la-di-da, didn’t it? That’s great that you were always comfortable with yourself, Kate (though I hardly think that’s the case since the Hollywood pressure to lose weight certainly worked on her), but that doesn’t mean that having to take a journey to figure that out makes you in some way defective or less-than. That’s not my defending Miley or anything, either – I just think in general, we’ve all got our own paths to take, and adolescence/young adulthood is awkward as hell… and different for everyone.That being said, I still love me some Kate Winslet… just not to fond of this fuckery.

Kate Winslet was already a parent to 13-year-old daughter Mia and 9-year-old son Joe before she hooked up with Ned Rocknroll and they decided to make shit legit and get married. Then she ended up pregnant and just last week gave birth to their son, Bear. Turns out, she wasn’t really planning on the new baby. Oops!
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“It’s been very busy, but thankfully I’ve had some time to rest. I haven’t been pregnant in 10 years. My daughter is turning 13, and my son will be 10.
“It’s funny – I really was at a point where I was certain I wasn’t having any more kids. Life is very strange that way, isn’t it?”
Now, don’t get your panties in a twist, guys – I’m not saying Kate Winslet doesn’t love her son or want him, just that it was probably a shocker when that EPT test turned blue or got a cross or whatever the hell happens with pregnancy tests (not my forte). However, I have to wonder why some women don’t just… you know… take birth control? Use preventative methods? It’s nearly 2014, ladies. Keep up.
Also, I know women do it all the time, but I cannot imagine having my youngest be ten years old and then thinking, “Huh, this would be fun to start ALL OVER AGAIN!” Hell to the no.

Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll had a kid and I offered up a list of wacky baby names. They didn’t take any of my suggestions, but they may as well have. Because guess what they named their son?
Bear Rocknroll. A spokesperson for Ms. Winslet confirmed the name to People. (And actually confirmed the name “Bear Winslet”, so I guess the kid is using his mom’s name. Because I guess Bear Rocknroll is just too cool.)
And here’s the weirdest damn thing — he’s not the only Bear of a celeb out there in the world. Alicia Silverstone also named her son Bear.
What do you guys think of the name?

As always, I’ve come up with a fantastic list of baby names that this celeb couple can feel free to use:
- Little Roo
- Titanica (for a girl, obviously.)
- Koffi Table
Give give her all the damn time recovery she needs to get her ~~post baby bod~~ especially considering she doesn’t give an eff if she never has a flat stomach, and that’s why we love her.

Are you excited about the film adaptation of Divergent? I wasn’t so sure at first, but then I thought, who am I kidding? OBVIOUSLY I will see this, and though I doubt it’ll be as good as the book(s), it’ll still be its own thing and totally watchable.
While we’ve been teased with several “featurettes” to tide us over, it seems we’ve now finally got our first real trailer for the movie, and it’s looking good! I used to think Shailene Woodley was totally wrong for the part of Tris, but I’m coming around to the idea. And hello, obviously I will go see anything Kate Winslet is in.
What do you think? Will you be seeing Divergent? It hits US theatres in March 2014.

In case you missed it, Kate Winslet is extremely pregnant with her third child and she’s also promoting her new movie, Labor Day (IRONY??? LOL!!!) at all the film festivals. Most recently, she hit up the BFI London Film Festival on Monday night and looked damn good in a long red dress. When is this baby due?
Not much to say on this one, just thought we could all use a lesson on effortless beauty and grace on this fine Tuesday.
