Kate Winslet: Please Don't Call Me a Movie Star

In fact, when she watches her Golden Globe-winning role in Revolutionary Road, she says, "I'm so thrilled by our foreheads." (She's speaking, of course, of hers and costar Leonardo DiCaprio's non-Botoxed brows.) "They're supposed to move. I'm very proud of that."
She's also proud of her normal, off-screen lifestyle, with husband Sam Mendes and their son, Joe, 5, and Winslet's daughter, Mia, 8, from a previous marriage, which she talks openly about in the February issue of InStyle (on sale Friday).
"Please don't call me [a movie star]. I don’t feel like a movie star in my life at all, and I don’t particularly think I behave like one," says the actress, 33.
She adds: "I don't have my own plane. I don't have a chef or a trainer. To me, you’re a movie star only during the time when you’re at the Academy Awards or at an important glamorous event. It’s very much a hat that you wear, and as soon as the event’s over, the hat comes off. I'm back to being me and being Mummy, and that’s my priority."
Still, the glamour of such events is not lost on Winslet: "I'm always very aware of that feeling of, 'How lucky am I?' " Her other lucky turn? Her connection with one of Hollywood's hottest actors, DiCaprio. "He has always been my closest actor friend," she says. "I absolutely love the guy."
