Kate Winslet: I want to take risks

Kate Winslet is ready to take “risks” again.

The British actress married Ned Rocknroll in 2012 and the couple welcomed their first son together, Bear, in December last year. She might have been settling into life with her latest arrival, but the 38-year-old is keen to focus on her career again now.

“It’s time to get back. Back to the, ‘I don’t f**k around,’ back to the KW basics of take some serious risks, put yourself out there. And just really push it,” she enthused to the June/July edition of Harper’s Bazaar.

The actress is no stranger to juggling work and motherhood, as she also has daughter Mia with her ex-husband Jim Threapleton and son Joe from her marriage to Sam Mendes, which officially ended in 2011.

She’s now loved up with Ned and enjoys the fact that he remains a mystery to many people.

“Nobody knows him – it’s brilliant. They like to think they know him. They like to be judgmental because of his name and everything, but it’s fabulous because no one knows anything about him,” she explained.

Kate’s latest films have included Labor Day and fantasy film Divergent. She’s about to start filming on sequel Insurgent and with her hectic schedule admits that pampering has fallen by the wayside.

“I know it sounds very self-effacing because people say, ‘Oh, you’re a film star. People probably come to your house to do it.’ But I don’t have the time to get my nails done apart from when I’m doing a photo shoot,” she sighed.
