Kate Winslet may have won a Golden Globe this month, but the actress' most cherished role is her real life one as a mother.
Her children Joe, seven, and Mia, 11, are never far away from her, it seems, although Winslet says that her parents, Roger and Sally, sometimes step in to help out with childcare. While talking about balancing work and children, the actress said, "you just do it".
"I just figure it out and pull it off. But I will say this: I have never left my children to go away to work. I have always been able to figure out a schedule where I am shooting during part of their school holidays," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"I am a mother... That is what I do. Just before I came here today I said out loud 'OK, famous person hat on.'
"This is playing a completely different role. I always find these occasions thrilling but it is so very far removed from my own life," she said.
