AND so to Kate Winslet, last seen heroically rescuing Richard Branson's elderly mother from a burning holiday home. But life isn't all saving people from savage blazes and pulling stranded cats out of trees, not even for Hollywood A-listers.
Winslet has revealed that life, this past while, has been merely a case of "soldiering on" while she attempts to get back on her feet following the end of her seven-year marriage to Sam Mendes.
"As a woman, especially when you have children, one gets so good at soldiering on -- almost too good," Winslet told Harper's Bazaar. "I probably had very few moments of allowing that sadness to emerge."
But no sooner had Winslet, who turned 36 on Wednesday, opened the door to a bit of me-time that she slammed it firmly shut again, insisting that it's not about her at all because if it was, who would be there to think of the children?
"There's no way that I'm going to allow my children to be f**ked up because my marriages haven't worked out," she continued.
But the good news for fans of Hollywood superstars, who don't mind taking their clothes off on-screen and are able to throw their hand at a bit of amateur heroics on the side, Winslet revealed that she is now ready to move on and believes a "new narrative" is about to begin in the drama that is her life.
Which all begs the question, what act are we in now? And when is the interval?
