She was born on 5th October 1975 in Reading, England. Raised along with three siblings by working-class parents. Her family struggled to arrange food on the table throughout her childhood. Her extended family included many actors, and this inspired her to pursue an acting career. At age only eleven years old she was accepted into a theatre school and started auditioning for commercial roles.
Since her teenage, she joined the cast of the British TV series “Dark Season.” After leaving her theatre school due to financial issues she appeared in a television film called “Anglo-Saxon Attitudes.” After losing weight, she appeared in shows like “Get Back” and “Casualty.” Her big breakthrough came in 1994 when she was directed by Peter Jackson in “Heavenly Creatures,”. The role was emotionally motivated for her but critics were quick to praise her performance.
Winslet drew even more praise from critics after taking the role of Marianne Dashwood in “Sense and Sensibility.” She remarkably improved her acting technique which left critics amazed and was nominated for many prestigious awards. The film was also a commercial success, grossing over $134 million ( INR 10,01.92 Cr) at the box office.
In 1997 she made a serious performance in “Titanic.” Although he was initially not so much interested, James Cameron cast her as Rose, the female lead and the love interest for Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character. The role tested her in almost every way and she almost drowned during filming. The film breaks many box office records with earnings of over $2 billion (INR 1,49,54.28 Cr). She took another daring role in the film “Quills” along with Joaquin Phoenix. During the movie shooting of 2001’s “Enigma,” she wore a corset to hide her pregnancy.
By this point, she had developed a reputation for performing in historical dramas, in order to break free from this stereotype. She appeared in the movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Director Michel Gondry motivated her to improvise during scenes, and this helped her a lot for performing the character that most audiences had never seen before.
The film was a turning point for her in many ways, and many critics called it one of the best movies of recent memory. Over the next period, she was offered a much wider range of roles in films like “Finding Neverland,” “Romance & Cigarettes,” “All the King’s Men,” “Little Children,” and the commercially successful romantic comedy “The Holiday. Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2009 and 2021.
In 2011, she appeared in the film “Contagion.” Throughout the next period, Winslet appeared in many films that failed to make an impact with critics, such as the “Divergent” series. These films were financially successful & became better with films like “The Dressmaker” and “Steve Jobs.” Outside of film, she has appeared in TV series such as “Extras” and “Mildred Pierce.”
She was married to director Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001. The couple gave birth to a daughter. She was then married to director Sam Mendes from 2003 to 2011. They have a son. In 2012 she married Richard Branson’s nephew Edward Abel Smith, AKA Ned Rocknroll. They have a son.
After receiving her salary for “Titanic,” she started to the Cornish village of Angarrack, where she purchased of property for 200,000 pounds ( INR 2.02 Cr). Just three years later, she sold the four-bedroom home for 250,000 pounds ( INR 2.53 Cr) earning a respectable 25% profit margin.
She also purchased a property in Treyford. The property was valued at 2 million pounds (INR 20.28 Cr) she sold it in 2014. In 2013, Winset purchased another British property in West Sussex for 3.3 million pounds ( INR 33.47 Cr). By 2017, she had extensively renovated her property, adding a swimming pool, a media room, and a large garage. These renovations increased the property value to about 4 million pounds (INR 40.57 Cr).
Over in the United States, in 2004 she paid $5 million ( INR 37.40 Cr) for a duplex penthouse in New York City’s Chelsea neighbourhood. She listed this home for sale in December 2020 for $5.7 million ( INR 42.63 Cr). When not in the United States for long periods of time, she would rent the unit for a reported $30,000 ( INR 22.44 Lacs) per month. She finally found a buyer in May 2021 for $5.69 million (INR 42.56 Cr).
She along with Will Smith won Golden Globe Awards 2022 for their performances in ‘Mare of Easttown’ and ‘King Richard. Winslet and Will Smith were among the big winners Sunday at the 2022 Golden Globe Awards.
