Kate Winslet Opens Up About Year-Long Recovery After ‘Mare Of Easttown’
Kate Winslet has opened up about her year-long hiatus from acting following her award-winning performance in Mare of Easttown.
Discussing her break during an interview with Variety, the 46-year-old actress said she needed to “recover” from her HBO hit.
“I took last year off to be with my family and to recover from ‘Mare of Easttown.’ It was good to have a bit of rest,” she added. “But I love my job, and I’m really ready to throw myself back into it.”
“For an actor, there’s nothing as thrilling as being in a room with other actors. I am craving that again. But I’ve got heaps going on this year so I’m excited to get going.”
Addressing her upcoming projects, Winslet revealed that she was going to fulfil a long-held dream to work with BAFTA-nominated actress Andrea Riseborough.
“I have always admired her work,” said Winslet. “She is entirely different, truthful and compelling in everything she does. I find her riveting to watch. She is unselfconscious and damn funny, too. ‘Death of Stalin‘ is a firm favourite in our house. She and I are working together later this year and I truly cannot wait.”
She also added that she hopes to reunite with her Collateral Beauty co-star Helen Mirren, who was recently honoured at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
“I would dearly love to work with her more intensely on something. There’s nobody quite like her.” Winslet added, “She’s powerful and riveting in everything she does.”
