Kate Winslet films

She is best known for her roles in films such as “Titanic,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Revolutionary Road,” and “Steve Jobs.” Winslet has received numerous accolades for her acting, including several Academy Award and BAFTA Award nominations, and she has won numerous other awards, including a Golden Globe and an Emmy. In addition to her work in film, Winslet has also appeared in several television shows, including “Mildred Pierce” and “Mare of Easttown.”

Winslet became a household name with her 1997 breakthrough on the big budget set of the infamous shipwreck alongside superstar Leonardo DiCaprio 25 years after the film was released. The star jumpstarted her fortune with the role of a lifetime on Titanic, which was dubbed the most expensive movie of all time in 1997 when she was just 20 years old. 

Although DiCaprio was just one year older than Winslet, he had started in cinema as a child actor almost a decade earlier. 

He’d received critical acclaim for his heartwrenching work in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993 and starred as the star-crossed lover in the 1996 adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. 

By the time he was cast in Titanic, DiCaprio was a bona fide film star, whereas Winslet had only appeared in five films after getting her Hollywood breakthrough in 1994’s Heavenly Creatures. On her screen debut in Heavenly Creatures (1994)]: I was reading the script in the back of the car and I turned to my dad and yelled, “I’ve GOT to get this!”. And he replied, “Then you will.” And I thought, “Yep, that’s it. I’m bloody well going to.” And that was it. I was so determined. It was something crucial to my life. I just so communicated with her, the story and their relationship. And when I found out, I just couldn’t believe it. I was so happy, I cried. I remember I was working part-time at a deli at the time because I didn’t have any money and was in the middle of making a sandwich when they phoned and said I’d got the job. I burst into tears and had to leave work because I couldn’t control myself. It was absolutely brilliant.

In 2014 the actress made her mark on the villainous side of Hollywood playing Jeanine Matthews in the Divergent trilogy, a role she reportedly took because she wanted her children to think she was “cool”. 

Winslet is on-screen for just 20 minutes in the first film, but earned a comfortable $5million (£4.3million), putting her Titanic salary to shame. 

At the time, the production of Titanic was absolutely groundbreaking, with a budget of $200million (£175million) it was the most expensive movie ever made until 2010 when the same director, James Cameron, stole the title from himself with the CGI-laden Avatar. 

Avatar also snatched Titanic’s rank of highest grossing film ever made as it earned $2.9billion (£2.5billion).
