Kate Winslet, is the ultimate Bollywood Mom. Why you ask? Because she leads her life in her own way.
Like many of us, she struggled with weight issues. And people were quick to dismiss her. But she overcame her fears and insecurity and today she’s an Oscar winning actress. She delivers this inspiring speech to young women around the world after winning her third BAFTA award.
More importantly, she’s a mum to three kids from three different marriages. Mia, 14 with Extraordinary Rendition director Jim Threapleton. They divorced in 2001 following a three-year marriage. Joe, 11 with Oscar- winning Director Sam Mendez and Bear, 2 years with British businessman Ned Rocknroll.
Her children are her first priority and they always live with her instead of splitting time with their fathers.
“They’ve 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.”- Kate said in an interview. “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!”
In an interview with Glamour Magazine, Kate talks candidly about raising grounded kids while being in the spotlight.
“The challenge is making sure that they’re never treated different just because I sometimes am. I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky.”
I also love her response to people who want a perfect swim suit body a month after having a baby.
“Having just had a baby, I’m not going to be thinking about my arse”
Hats off to you for living life on your own terms. You go girl!
