Here’s a Clip from Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin’s ‘Labor Day’

I’ve had to Google what Labor Day – based on the novel by Joyce Maynard – is all about, and here’s what I came up with: a depressed single mom (Kate Winslet) offers some random dude (Josh Brolin) a home, only to find out he’s an escaped convict and the police are closing in. Sounds like a hoot, right? (No, seriously – I am on board for anything Kate Winslet does.)

The film screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, but now there’s a clip – called ‘How Far Are the Train Tracks’ – for us all to watch and enjoy. It looks a bit gritty, a bit trashy and probably really compellingly watchable, but then again, I’m biased – Winslet’s in it, and I adore her. What do you guys think? Would you see this? Fun fact: Apparently production on the film was held back for a year so that Josh Brolin could take part.

Tobey Maguire and James Van Der Beek are also in it, so should be interesting…

Here’s Some More ‘Divergent’ Goodness!


Everyone is getting pretty excited for the big screen adaptation of Divergent, the awesome YA dystopian novel, and I can’t wait, either. While we’ve seen our first teaser trailer, the film now has its first featurette. Stars Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet and the book’s author, Veronica Roth, came together to discuss the adaptation, the premise, etc to continue to build momentum leading up to its release – which isn’t until March 2014, unfortunately.

Have you guys read the book? Will you see the movie? Obviously The Hunger Games started this whole trend, but there have been some other great, unique stories to come out of the genre and I think Divergent is one of them.

Watch Now: The First ‘Divergent’ Teaser Is Here

The big screen adaptation of Divergent isn’t hitting theatres until March 2014, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start getting excited about it now. While a full trailer will be premiered during Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, a mini teaser trailer hit the Internet yesterday. And when I say “mini”, I do mean mini – it’s all over 13 seconds long, but it’s enough to whet your appetite and get you (or at least me) excited to see what’s coming next.

Here’s the thing: any move with Kate Winslet in it is automatically going to be at the top of my “to see” list. Shailene Woodley has also grown on me recently, and I can sort of see her as Tris – especially after watching this little video. Of course, the movie probably won’t be anything near as good as the book, which I read back when it first came out, but it’ll be its own thing and I’m sure totally watchable.

Will you see Divergent?

Kate Winslet is Pregnant With Her Third Child

Kate Winslet married some bro called Ned Rocknroll last December, and now they’re having their first babyfriend together! It’s not Kate’s first – she’s already got a 12-year-old daughter named Mia and a 9-year-old son Joe. Lots of people have been giving her shit about the fact that she’s had three kids now by three different fathers (don’t even get me started on that), but I say good for her.

From People:

The Titanic actress, 37, and her husband Ned Rocknroll are expecting their first child together, PEOPLE has confirmed with her rep exclusively.

“Kate and Ned are delighted” over the news, the rep adds.

Despite her previous marriages ending in divorce, Winslet  always knew she wanted to expand her family further.

“I’m hoping to have more kids,” Winslet told InStyle in 2006. “I don’t know whether one or two. Oh, God, I would love to have more.”

Do you, girl. I love Kate and always have – she’s one of the most genuinely nice (and sickeningly gorgeous, but that goes without saying) ~celebs~ I’ve ever met, and one of the only ones who’ve managed to make me feel a little wobbly in the legs.

Kate Winslet Compares Love to Carrying Rocks or Something

Kate Winslet has had a few relationships go awry in her time, but who hasn’t? Now she’s married to some Ned Rocknroll bro, and while it may seem like any man with that name is probably not capable of going the distance, Kate has learned a lot over the years and she’s sure now she can make it work.

From Harper’s Bazaar:

“I’ve really learnt a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular,” she said. “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.

“I have so much more material to draw on for work – rubble, bricks – and I know I can carry it now. I’m not going to drop it, and if I do, I’ll sift through it. Does that make any sense at all?”

I don’t really understand the rubble and bricks analogy, but she’s so pretty, it kind of doesn’t matter. Also, I love when actors get all navel-gazey and think they’re saying something really profound. Like, hello, we’re all shaped by our experiences. It’s called being a human being. I hate to snark on Kate because I absolutely adore her, it just gives me a little chuckle whenever people get so artsy fartsy about their own existences.

Check out a few of the shots from Kate’s Harper’s Bazaar cover below.

Kate Winslet’s Wedding Ring Is Pretty Normal, Guys

US Weekly snapped Kate Winslet out and about in Hampshire, England this week, showing off her wedding ring from her recent marriage to Ned Rocknroll. While the photo isn’t much to speak of, the ring looks rather normal and like nothing too lavish, which just continues to prove something I have always known in my heart of hearts: Kate Winslet is one classy broad.

Listen, I’ve loved her since Heavenly Creatures and like wine, cheese and my real-life boo, she just gets better with time. She’s effortlessly and classically beautiful, a genuinely nice person (I’ll have to share my Winslet stories one day – stories about her rudeness are just false) and my God, the woman can act. Look at how great she looks! Look how few f-cks she gives about going out and about without full make-up and clothes straight from the runway! Look how often Titanic is on TV and how many of those times I watch it even though I have the DVD! (All the time; 95%)

Anyway, not much to see here in any regard, but any chance to cover the Meryl Streep of our generation (don’t even get me started on Meryl!) is a good one.

Kate Winslet Got Married!!!

You guys! The three exclamation marks are reserved for very special occasions only, and this, friends, is a very special occasion. Not because of the actual marriage, probably – we don’t get much into Kate Winslet gossip over here, but the guy she married actually calls himself Ned Rocknroll. Like, that’s his actual name, and I just can’t get firmly behind that. So yeah, I’m not super pumped about the marriage part, but this one particular fact about the wedding? That’s what earned that punctuation in the headline. And it’s amazing.

From People:

Kate Winslet has tied the knot with Richard Branson’s nephew, Ned Rocknroll, her rep tells PEOPLE.

“I can confirm that Kate Winslet married Ned Rock’nRoll in NY earlier this month in a private ceremony attended by her two children and a very few friends and family,” the rep says. “The couple had been engaged since the summer.”

According to British media reports, Leonardo DiCaprio gave away the bride in a ceremony so secret that the bride and groom’s parents didn’t know about it.

The Oscar-, Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actress, 37, has been dating Rocknroll, 34, (his legal name) since fall of 2011.

In August 2011, she and Rocknroll were on the same Caribbean island owned by Branson when a fire broke out and Winslet rescued Branson’s 90-year-old mother.

Winslet previously was married to Sam Mendes and Jim Threapleton.

Yeah, it’s kind of weird that their parents didn’t know anything about the wedding. And it’s definitely weird that this dude legally changed his last name to Rocknroll, and that Kate could feasibly start calling herself Kate Winslet-Rocknroll. But guys. Leonardo DiCaprio gave her away. And that is more important than everything else that ever happened in the world.
