Glamour readers, got good tasteâ€”because Kate Winslet looks amazing, of course, but sheâ€™s gorgeous inside, too.
She talks to writer Â Skip Hollandsworth about career, kids and figuring out love postmarriage.
So what does the Oscar winner think of the flattery? â€œI mean, come on!â€ she says, laughing. â€œSophia Loren is glamorous. I donâ€™t know how to do my hair.â€
On what it was like to win the Oscar she says:

On whether or not sheâ€™s had plastic surgery or wants to change anything about her body she says:
