It is not uncommon to see several Hollywood stars take a break from acting. Although the reasons differ from person to person, the result of such a hiatus leaves the individual refreshed and ready to return to the acting scenes.
Fans of Kate Winslet have noticed that the actress has been away from film-related activities. The Hollywood star took a long-needed acting break after filming the critically acclaimed movie “Mare of Easttown.”
The hiatus, which lasted for a year, afforded the actress sufficient time to rest and strategize about her return to the film industry. Winslet has now revealed in an interview with Variety, that she is ready to make her comeback, saying she craves it.
Kate Winslet Is Ready To Return To Acting
Winslet’s feature in the film “Mare of Easttown” took quite a toll on the actress. For her portrayal of the title character Marianne “Mare” Sheehan, the actress won a prime-time Emmy and earned several award nominations alongside praises from critics and fans alike.
After the film’s production, Winslet paused her career, taking some time to kick back and relax. Now, on the annual celebration of International Women’s Day, the actress revealed she was itching to make a return to filming.
“I took last year off to be with my family and to recover from ‘Mare of Easttown.’ It was good to have a bit of a reset. But I love my job, and I’m really ready to throw myself back into it,” Winslet told Variety. “For an actor, there’s nothing as thrilling as being in a room with other actors. I am craving that again. But I’ve got heaps going on this year, so I’m excited to get going.”
Kate Winslet’s To Debut In An Andrea Riseborough Feature
In her interview with the news publication, Winslet revealed she had several projects to jump into when she made her return. The award-winning actress told fans about her upcoming role in an Andrea Riseborough film.
“I have always admired her work. She is entirely different, truthful and compelling in everything she does. I find her riveting to watch. She is unselfconscious and damn funny, too. ‘Death of Stalin’ is a firm favourite in our house,” says Winslet. “She and I are working together later this year, and I truly cannot wait.”
Although the actress’ comment revealed that the feature would happen this year, it did not state when the production process for the film would start, its name, or the other actors that would be cast.

Apart from fangirling over Riseborough, Winslet also shared her admiration for another Hollywood icon, Helen Mirren. The 76-year-old actress has garnered numerous accolades across her storied career. He remains the only actor to have won the Triple Crown of Acting in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
As such, little wonder why Winslet stated she hopes to collaborate with Mirren again following their brief appearance in 2016’s “Collateral Beauty.”
“I would dearly love to work with her more intensely on something. There’s nobody quite like her,” Winslet said. “She is powerful and riveting in everything she does.”
Kate Winslet Encouraged Women In The Entertainment Industry
Away from her career, Winslet also encouraged female actors to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams in honor of the International Women’s Day celebration.
“Don’t expect the world to owe you something that you haven’t worked hard toward achieving for yourself. It won’t get handed to you on a plate,” she said. “Just keep experimenting and practising, even if that’s just at home. Don’t act in front of a mirror. All that does is show you what your facial expressions are. But it’s more important to start from the inside. Try not to be hard on yourself if you don’t get a role you wanted, just keep going.”
The actress, who has over two decades of experience in the film industry, further advised her colleagues not to obsess over their looks. Instead, she prompted them to enjoy acting and revel in its pleasures.
