I totally forgot that Kate Winslet is pregnant with her third child – her first with new-ish husband Ned Rocknroll (stupid name) – but indeed she is… and she’s loving it! I don’t know why, really – kids are bastards. Case in point: many years ago, I used to work at a shop that Kate used to frequent. She’s a total sweetie (and disgustingly gorgeous, even without makeup) but her son, who was quite young at the time, had this MASSIVE fit one day to the point where he lay down in the middle of the aisle in front of everyone and refused to get up, no matter how much she embarrassingly implored him to do so. I felt bad for her! And yeah, that’s what kids do, but that proves my point: kids are bastards. Cute, really awesome (sometimes) bastards, but bastards nonetheless.
In any case, I suppose you forget all that once it comes round to having another one, and here’s what Kate told People about her pregnancy:
“I feel completely great,” Winslet, 37, told PEOPLE while promoting her new film Labor Day. “It’s such a pleasure to be able to be here and still be permitted on an airplane and talk about a film that I’m proud to be a part of.”
LOL, I love that she had to say something about still being able to fly. She doesn’t look THAT far along, though, so she should be good to do promo for another month or to, at least, right?
In any case, are we all excited to see Labor Day now?

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.

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.

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 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.
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 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.
