Bio

Kate Winslet is an English actress best known for her roless as Juliet Hulme in Heavenly Creatures (1994), Rose DeWitt Bukater in the highest-grossing film of all time, Titanic (1997), and Clementine Kruczynski in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004).

She also starred in the title role of the 2011 mini-series Mildred Pierce, for which she won the Emmy award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie.

She is the winner of a BAFTA and SAG Award, and a five-time Oscar nominee.

At the age of 22, she broke the record for the youngest person to receive two Oscar nominations, and each of her subsequent nominations has broken a further record: the youngest person to receive three, four, and five nominations.

Winslet also appeared in an episode of the BBC comedy series Extras in August 2005, as a satirical version of herself.

She memorably told Andy and Maggie, the two characters who star in the series, that she was doing a film about the Holocaust because she was tired of losing out on Oscars, as she's been nominated four times, and that everyone who does a film about the Holocaust wins an Oscar.

She also (while dressed as a nun) was shown giving phone sex tips to the romantically-challenged Maggie.

Ricky Gervais later said that she was his favourite guest star. Her performance in the episode led to her being nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Performance in a Comedy Series, but she did not win.
