Kate Winslet: “Nursing Is A Great Excuse To Eat Heaps”

Kate Winslet - who welcomed Bear on December 7 – is in no rush to lose her baby weight.

Speaking to E! News at a Divergent press junket – Winslet – who also has Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, said, “To be honest with you, after having a baby you end up being so busy with the baby and the nursing. And I have two other children as well obviously, so there’s so much going on that the difficulty I find is remembering that you have to eat. Because when you’re nursing you really have to eat, otherwise you don’t produce anything that’s going to feed your child. So nursing’s a great excuse to eat heaps. That’s what I’ve been doing.”

After Bear’s birth she had to go back to re-shoot scenes for the film.

“When Bear, my son, was 6 weeks old, they said, ‘We need you. We have a few days of reshoots to do.’ And I said, ‘Are you high?!’ Like, how am I going to do this? But somehow you do. You just make it work.”

On set she would “feed and shoot and nurse” on rotation.

She said, “There’s actually something empowering about going, ‘Hey, I can do this! I can do all of this!’”

However getting back into her Divergent costumes wasn’t so smooth.

She joked, “Getting into the costume again was a little bit like squeezing a sausage into a thimble! I had just had a baby! It just doesn’t feel right. Your body is very soft.”


Kate Winslet: Why We Named Our Son Bear Blaze

During a Tuesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet opened up about her three kids – Mia, 13, Joe, 10, and Bear Blaze, 3 months – and surviving her first California earthquake.

“When I was pregnant with Mia and when I was pregnant with Joe, I didn’t name them before they came out because I always felt like I just have to see them and see who they’re going to be,” the Labor Day actress, 38, shared. “But of course, this time around there’s Mia and Joe and the whole pregnancy is about, ‘What are we gonna call the baby?’ So it was really lovely, actually. They were very much included and we settled on Bear quite early on.”

She went on to describe how she came up with her tot’s first name.

“A friend of mine when I was younger was nicknamed Bear and I just had always really loved it,” she said. “And he was very much a bear. He was everyone’s shoulder to cry on, he was a big bear hug, he was a great figure in my life.”

Her son’s unique middle moniker pays reference to the house fire Winslet escaped in August 2011 while on vacation in the Caribbean. That was the weekend she met her husband, Ned Rocknroll (born to the name Abel Smith).

“Bear’s second name is Blaze, because my husband and I met in a house fire basically,” she said. “Well, we did. The house burned down and we survived. But we wanted something of the fire, and so Blaze was the name that we came up with.”

While her husband’s surname is amusing, their son will go by mom’s last name.

“People who know Ned they know he’s very much about irony and living life and having fun so he changed it to Rocknroll,” she shared.

The Titanic actress went on to talk about experiencing her first-ever earthquake in L.A. early Monday morning — while pumping breast milk!

“It’s 6:20 something or other and I’m sitting in the hotel here in LA and I’m pumping because I have a 14 week old baby,” Winslet said. “I’m here for 48 hours I couldn’t bring him. It’s too far. It’s a 12-hour plane ride. And so I’m pumping, starting at my beautiful picture of my beautiful baby boy and my husband’s on the other line and the room starts to shake,” she said of the 4.4-scale quake. “I hung up, ran into the doorframe with my friend who was with me and she’s like it’s an earthquake.. .I just carried on pumping through the whole entire thing.”

The Oscar winner was photographed receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just hours after that earth-shaking experience.


Kate Winslet Receives Hollywood Star

Kate Winslet honored on Hollywood Walk of Fame

She’s got that new mom glow!

Three months after welcoming her third child, son Bear, Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet looked beautiful in black while receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday (March 17).

In her first post-baby appearance, the Titanic actress looked simply stunning in a form-fitting black dress and heels, with her long blonde locks pulled back.

The ceremony was held hours after California was hit with a 4.4 magnitude earthquake.

“I’m completely overwhelmed by the number of people that are here today,” Winslet, 38, said at the event, which was also attended by her Revolutionary Road costar Kathy Bates and Divergent costar Shailene Woodley.

“I honestly had no idea this was going to be quite such a well-attended event especially after the earthquake this morning, which frightened me quite a lot actually,” she added. “I made for a door frame with my breast pump in my hand.”

The celebrated actress is also mom to older children, daughter Mia, 13 and son Joe, 10, from previous marriages.

Bear’s father is Kate’s third husband, Ned Rocknroll.

Kate Winslet Welcomes Baby No. 3: A Boy

57th BFI London Film Festival - "Labor Day" Premiere

Congratulations to Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll who welcomed a baby boy on Saturday (December 7). People reports the baby was born at n NHS hospital in Sussex County, England.

Her rep says, “Mother and baby are doing great.”

The 38-year-old actress already has Mia, 13, and Joe, 10, with first and second husbands Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes.

In her interview with Vogue she said the kids live with her.

“[The children have] always been with me. They don’t go from pillar to post; they’re not flown here and there with nannies. That’s never happened. My kids don’t go back and forth; none of this 50/50 time with the mums and dads – my children live with me; that is it. That is it!”

She also told Good Housekeeping that she loves hectic mornings with her children.

“I love the routine. I love getting up in the morning and getting breakfast and packing lunches and doing the school run. Those things are really important to me,” she said. “My kids are my whole world.”


Kate Winslet is not photoshopped at all

Kate Winslet is in the November issue of the British Harpers Bazaar, and you know, for a woman who loathes plastic surgery as much as Kirstie Alley loathes low fat cheese, she didn’t mind those magazine folks giving her sharper cheeks, a chiseled chin, a breast lift and a tummy tuck. In the interview, along with a boatload of swearing, she says she won’t allow her kids to be fucked up because she fucked up her marriages twice. Mind you, she’s currently dating billionaire Richard Branson’s nephew, Ned RockNRoll (no joke, that’s his last name) who happens to be married. Yep, it’s all about sincerity here folks!

All the others who tried and failed at the Emmys 2011

As possibly the only woman that can stand next to Christina Hendricks and not have her chest look like a large gaping hole after a dynamite blast, Sofia Vergara would not ordinarily lead this kind of post, but she covered them, so damn it, she failed us. Julie Bowen, on the other hand, is a pro at chesticle failure, and for the life of us, we can’t understand why she insists on plunging necklines when those three rascals of hers have left her with a bossom that’s as enticing as a classroom writing board. And then we have Gwyneth Paltrow who ate a whole organic leaf yesterday and was proud to show it didn’t leave her bloated, Lea Michelle who assumed we find vertebrae arousing, and Kate Winslet whose semi-sexiness we chose to ignore because she made those comments about being a foe of plastic surgery. Nobody call our obsession with huge fake boobs unhealthy. Oh, and Katie Holmes was there. Before two security guards picked her up and carried her back to her paranoid gay ewok.

Kate Winslet’s School Run

Mom-of-two Kate Winslet was seen walking her kids - daughter Mia, 10 next month, and 6 1/2-year-old son Joe - to school in New York City on Friday (September 17). Kate is co-parenting the kids with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Sam Mendes.

The following day, the Academy Award-winning actress and her kids were seen shopping in the West Village. They did a bit of antiquing at the Upper Crust and left with a little green stool. The trio, who were joined by friends, also bought some shoes at Shoe Garden.

Kate made her public debut with her new main squeeze, British model Louis Dowler, at the Vanity Fair party in Madrid earlier this week.


Kate Winslet Makes Debut With Model Boyfriend Louis Dowler

Kate Winslet looks super happy with her new boyfriend Louis Dowler, a British model. The two made their official red carpet debut together at the Vanity Fair party in Madrid on Monday night (September 20).

Kate wore an asymmetrical little black dress and Louboutins shoes while Dowler looked dapper in black pants and a white shirt.

The two confirmed their romance back in August after being spotted on dates in New York and London. The 34-year-old actress is set to fly to Chicago soon to shoot her next film, Contagion. While in the Windy City, she plans to have her soon-to-be ex-husband Sam Mendes help take care of Mia, 9, and Joe, 6.

Friends say the couple are inseparable. "Kate hates the idea of having a long-distance relationship, even for a short period of time," a source revealed.

"They have discussed the idea of Louis going with her while she films so they won't have to endure a long-distance relationship at such an early stage in what seems to be something pretty serious. Kate hasn’t been this happy in a very long time."


Kate Winslet & Sam Mendes’ United Front

Newly separated couple, Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes, put on a united front in New York City this morning (April 6) with their 6-year-old son Joe and Kate's 9-year-old daughter Mia from a former marriage. The family of four looked happy and Joe even waved at the nearby paparazzi!

The couple announced their split in mid-March after six years of marriage. Their lawyers said: "Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year. The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement. Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children. They ask that the media respect the privacy of the family."


Kate Winslet Picks Up Kids From School

Academy Award-winning actress Kate Winslet was spotted picking up her two children Mia Honey, 9, and Joe Alfie, 5 1/2, from school in New York City on Tuesday (November 10).

The 34-year-old Titanic star says that she avoids luxuries like nannies doing the school pick up and chefs making the meals because she doesn't want her kids to get used to a "movie star existence."

I don't have the perfect life. There are things I could implement within my life that would probably make it easier. But I deliberately don't do it because if I did, I would be living that movie star existence that I really try and resist."
