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.

Kate Winslet is unequivocally one of the most beautiful women in the world – THAT IS NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION – and she also has a great body. I suppose you could compare it to some of the stick figures, but I like curves on a lady, and she’s got them. Now that she’s pregnant with her third child, the press is, of course, asking her if she’s worried about baby weight and this and that and guess what – SHE ISN’T.
From Time Out:
“I don’t want to spend time thinking about the size of my arse. I want to be healthy and I want to have as much fun as I can have.
“I want to be around for my children. That’s it. Those are the priorities. Not getting a flat stomach. Don’t get me wrong, I like staying fit and healthy, it’s all part of a healthy attitude to life. I don’t think I’m alone in this.”
Right on with that. She was also asked why she hasn’t gone all Hollywood and become a major bitch, to which she replied:
“What would be the point?”I was raised to be a decent, polite person and I could see that with some people they changed, that terrible sense of entitlement kicks in. I never felt in any way entitled to be a little arsehole.”
I love you, Kate Winslet. The end.

Kate Winslet has two kids – with a third on the way – and at such tender ages (13 and 9), it’s important as a parent that you start racking up some cool points with your kids so they don’t think you’re a total lame-o. At least that’s my guess – I’m gloriously kid-free. In any case Kate pleas Jeanine Matthews in the upcoming film adaptation of Divergent, a role she took on to impress her own little ones, because who doesn’t love some young adult dystopian literature?
From MTV News:
“It’s funny. I think I’m developing a kind of subconscious loathing of the word ‘franchise,’ ” she told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz while promoting her movie “Labor Day” at the Toronto International Film Festival. “I just think of something that’s packaged, something you can buy on a shelf and is immediately disposable. I don’t know. It’s a really weird word for me.”
Winslet’s distaste for the term, however, didn’t stop her from accepting the role of Jeanine Matthews in the film based on Veronica Roth’s best-selling novel, which takes place in a society divided into five factions, each representing a different virtue.
“I didn’t have any hesitation at all,” she said of her role in what could be a three-part series. “It was such a great script. It’s a fantastic book.”
“My daughter is going to be 13, and my son is almost 10, and they’re getting to that age where this is the type of literature they’re going to be reading very soon,” she explained. “In fact, my daughter, two days ago, came home from school and went, ‘Mom! You’re never going to believe it. Rufus came up to me at school and said, ‘Is your mom really in ‘Divergent’? Is there going to be a premiere? Can you get me a ticket?’ ‘ My daughter suddenly [had a] new-found respect. ‘My mum is actually really cool.’ I’m just going to go with that. I did it because I wanted my kids to think I was cool.”
That’s true – it’s a great book! I’m getting pretty excited for it. Also, I wonder if her kids will want to see it since she’s in it or if that’ll ruin the effect?
