Kate Winslet: 'I Haven't Had My Nails Done in Months'

For an actress who’s had plenty of “Wow” moments on the red carpet and who has been the face of Lancôme for seven years, Kate Winslet insists that her life is everything but glam-centric. For one thing, she hasn’t had a manicure in months.

“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,’” the star says in the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar, her first cover since giving birth to son Bear Blaze in December. “But I don’t have the time to get my nails done apart from when I’m doing a photo shoot.”

And when she’s not hitting the carpet in figure-hugging gowns, Winslet’s uniform is a black blazer and Rag & Bone jeans. “They’re great, because I’m not quite back into my pre-pregnancy jeans,” she tells the mag.

Right now, the new mom quietly resides in Chichester, just south of London, and has no qualms with walking to a café with a girlfriend and baby Bear strapped to her chest.

In fact, it seems Winslet goes out of her way to avoid the trappings of an A-lister. Winslet’s marriage to Richard Branson’s nephew Ned Rocknroll is largely a mystery to fans. “Nobody knows him — it’s brilliant,” she says. “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.”

The Divergent star turns 40 next year, and says she doesn’t live in fear of frown lines. “I’m quite excited about it actually. I really enjoy getting older. You just don’t worry as much.”

But it’s her gig with Lancôme that will definitely help with the aging process — she’s marketing their latest wrinkle fighter, Rénergie French Lift: “Working with them does a huge amount for my self esteem, I’ve got to tell you.”

I don’t waste my money on that anyway. Luckily mine grow strong and straight. And only do pedis when absolutely needed.

“I enjoy getting older”… what?? Then don’t put antiwrinkle creams, don’t dye your hair. And of course drink lots of water and take long walks… gimme a break will ya?

guest on

She has 3 children with 3 different fathers …… I wonder how hard that is to manage.

Carol on

She’s currently 38, turning 39 in October, so yes, in 2015 she’ll turn 40.

I don’t understand women who have manicures all the time. I guess they are bored and have nothing better to do with their money. Special occasions are enough for me.

Sam on

This isn’t news…

Manicures can give you an infection. I do my own, thanks.
