Kate Winslet Smolders In Fashion Shoot For The Edit & Talks Turning 40

Kate Winslet is not afraid of turning 40 this month (October 5th); in fact she’s excited about it. That’s what the award winning actress boldly declared in a recent interview for The EDIT magazine, from high fashion retailer Net-A-Porter.

The mother of three captivates in the photo-shoot, with her natural beauty and seductive looks; appearing in designs by Donna Karan New York, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, Nina Ricci, Antonio Berardi, Altuzarra and Valentino.

Kate, who stars opposite Michael Fassbender in the new biopic film Steve Jobs, talked getting older and especially what life has been like leading up to turning 40.

I feel like the past two years have been different for me, deliberately so. I really wanted to mix it up a bit and feel that I was going full pelt towards 40 having done as much as I could: pushed myself, challenged myself, exhausted myself, had as much fun as possible. The last two years of my life have put a different sort of rocket fuel up my backside”.

When it comes to the aging female, Winslet told The EDIT that confidence plays a big part; “I’m baffled that anyone might not think women get more beautiful as they get older. Confidence comes with age, and looking beautiful comes from the confidence someone has in themselves.”

It’s that type of confidence that got her that role in Steve Jobs. Talking with Senior Editor Annabel Brog, Kate said “They [didn’t] think I’m right for this part. I just wasn’t entering their radar“. So she sent her husband out for a brown wig and sent a selfie to the producer of herself with no make up and glasses – securing the role of Joanna Hoffman that her agent couldn’t.

Backing down from playing the love interest of 25 year old Liam Hemsworth for her upcoming film, The Dressmaker wasn’t in her mind either. “How marvelous! I did say to Jocelyn [Moorhouse, the director], ‘Are we going to get away with this?’ And she said, ‘Yeah, yeah, he looks older than he is.’ Anyway, I don’t feel old. I feel excited about being 40”.

Besides also sharing her thoughts on therapy and a “little bit of a girl crush” on Insurgent co-star Shailene Woodley, Kate spoke on how she feels about her 14 year old daughter wanting to follow in her footsteps.

I’ve always had boundaries; she said, I’ve never felt exploited, (but I got) very, very lucky. The first job I did [Heavenly Creatures, directed by Peter Jackson] was very prestigious, which helped me professionally but also in terms of how other people perceived my personal integrity“.

It made a huge difference; I walked right into luvvie central and was welcomed with open arms…. But if you let a child of 14, which Mia is, just go into that world with no support or explanation of what that world is – who these people are, what they do – they’re just wandering blindly. So my only real concern is that I would want to make sure she is learning things in the right order and being respectful of people around her”.
