Delovely DeWinslet

Do you know who will never stop being delightful? Kate Winslet. I mean she’s almost so delightful it’s obnoxious. Like, “Ugh, delightful again?” But each time she speaks she has this lovely kind of nonchalant British charm that is just, for lack of a better word, delightful. Last month she was delighting us with her totally nonchalant acceptance of her son’s sexuality – whatever that may turn out to be. And before that she delighted us with her superhero exploits saving Richard Branson’s grandmum from a resort fire. But what really makes someone just over-the-top delightful is when she can be self-deprecating about just how delightful she really is. Like in her retelling her heroic feats during said fire. See for yourself.

I know. Ugh, so fucking delightful.

Kate, Kate ,Kate. My favorite Kate performance was her playing herself in Ricky Gervais' show Extras. She had been nominated for the Oscar several times w/o winning by then. Her meta character does a rant about what she would have to do to win an Oscar-->including starring in a movie about the Holocaust. Hilarious!!

Of course, within a year she won for Best Actress for The Reader.

Rachel Weisz, Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet, 3 of the best actresses of their generation.

Oh, we adore Kate! Especially loved her in Eternal Sunshine. Great post. :)

@vrgriffith: also my favourite; I remember an interview with Ricky and Stephen that before the episode aired Kate was nominated (for another film) and they were both praying she wouldn't get it!

Also Kate as a nun is very very delightful...

could you post a link for those of us outside the US?

I can't even see the source of your link to try and access it separately and I need to be overwhelmed by her delightfulness!

how're you doing,
i was so annoying,
i found something fun stuff online about
3 or 4 pm, and finished the project,
and thought that i'm gonna win on that,

but they only accept application from people
who sign up to their service. totally annoying now.

it was creating lyrics contest.

i think i'm genius.(it is joke people, joke!)

but, in this case, well~
i'm just happy to finish that.
and learned that i can do this, too.
(wasn't english)

realized that, like design and other work,
music is team biz, you know,
someone create the sound, then,
someone sing the dummy song without
the lyrics, then someone hear that
and write the song based on the
abstract clues, finally,
singer sings that song and record.

the reason why this is kind of fun experience,
when you hear the dummy song,
it's like dummy text in design.
like what is this? kind of very abstract.

and figure out that and details, was kind of
exciting try. just for fun. and i'm done.
never do that again.

yesterday my focus was gathering fishing coins.
and i finally level up so another lake opened.
(this is like video game thing)

good night, love you!

I love Kate winslet (and your site) but why don`t you write sth. about, lets say, Elena Anaya, new spanish shooting star, beautiful - and gay:-)
I saw an interview about her new film (new in germany), the skin I live in, and have the biggest crush on her ever since!!

people outside the us! after not being able to see the video, I went on youtube to search the whole damn site, lol. And I found a clip that sounds very familiar to what dorothy describes ^-^ It's a preview for the latest graham norton show, in which she explains the situation. So try searching graham/kate and you'll be fine :D

I swear, I could watch this woman tie her shoe laces or read the phone book for hours and enjoy every moment.
