After nearly three decades in the business, actress Kate Winslet has done a lot from winning an Oscar to starring in one of the biggest films of all time.
He is also happily frank in interviews, often offering smart answers, wit and the occasional bit of healthy rudeness. In a recent interview for Vanity Fair, she turned out to be a bit reflective to promote the release of Francis Lee’s period lesbian romantic drama “Ammonite”.
Lee’s follow-up to his favorite Yorkshire male farmhands love film “Gods on Country”, taken care of by 19th-century British paleontologist Mary Anning (Winslet), is the film of a man’s wife (Soirsey Ronan ) Is tasked to take care of. From a personal tragedy. The two women are soon caught up in an all-consuming love affair that changes their lives forever.
After working on the film and with a very good director like Lee, with the rise of the #MeToo movement, it took its second guess to work with people like Woody Allen and Roman Polanski:
“” Ammonite ‘really made me commit to being even more aware of what women want to say for themselves in movies and how we really want to be portrayed regardless of sexual orientation. Because life is f-king short and I want to do my best when it comes to setting a good example for young women. We are handing them a very f-ked world, so I would like to do a little bit of my work in keeping some proper integrity.
It’s like, I was working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. It is unbelievable to me now how those people were held in such a high regard, widely in the film industry and as long as they were. This king is abusive. And I have to take responsibility that I worked with both of them. I can not return the clock. I am struggling with those regrets, but what do we have, if we are not able to become the true king of all this? ”
Many actors have dropped their previous work with Allen and Polanski after the #MeToo movement brought back its controversial past – Alan’s alleged sexual abuse and Polanski’s rape conviction – to headlines.
Winslet has received serious awards for his work in “Ammonite”, which will be released in select theaters on 13 November.
