This is shaping up to be a banner year for the actress, and we’re sure this is only the beginning!
The gorgeous actress voiced her joy at winning the coveted honor, saying:

She isn't your average movie star!
Kate Winslet's role in the movie Divergent required a lot of top-notch acting from Kate which she easily delivered!
Some of her scenes, though, also required stunts! So guess what??
She chose to do them herself!!
That's badass and all, but did we mention the fact that she was pregnant with her third child at the time? Because she was!
The book's author Veronica Roth and the movie's director Neil Burger talked a little bit about it this past Tuesday at the movie's premiere in Los Angeles.
Here's what Roth said:
"It's pretty funny because she was pregnant when we were shooting, but she wanted to do her own stunt falls. She did a couple. She's you know, very careful about it, and then finally Neil Burger was like, 'Okay I'm too nervous – you can't do this anymore.' She was like, you know, taking-charge lady – she powers through. It's really impressive."
Neil Burger admits that he did have to tell Winslet to slow down once he learned she was pregnant. He said:
"We had to refit all of her wardrobe, but then there is a scene where she fights and she was like, you know, taking the falls and I'm like, 'Stop, you're pregnant.' But she was still wanting to do it with as much action. She's a committed actress and she's a committed mother, too. But she is just completely there, and you kind of just have to stop her."
But that commitment is what makes her such a great actress according to the director! Mr. Burger had some very glowing words about Kate indeed! He said:
"She really is, from my mind, the best actress of her generation, and … there's a reason. She's a pro. She's completely present."
It all worked out as Kate welcomed a very healthy boy named Bear, and now has an awesome movie coming out on Friday!
The legend of Kate Winslet just keeps on growing!
Kate Winslet recently appeared on Ellen, and shared a ton of personal information with the world!
…Including details about her newborn son Bear and how she decided upon that unusual yet adorable name!
Kate also revealed to Ellen Degeneres how the earthquake in Los Angeles on Monday was her first experience with a earthquake ever!
The movie star was actually using a breast milk pump machine when the shaking started, and she continued to pump all throughout the scary experience! It is kind of hilarious the way Kate tells it though!

Are you worried about Kate Winslet or any other new mom's eagerness to shed the baby weight? If you are, we need to stop you right there!
Moms, especially brand new mommies, have earned to right to go at their own pace — if at all, and to talk about it (in which we'll be super happy to listen!) — to lose whatever weight they might've gained while carrying a child and then bringing that child into the world!
So, we LOVE it when we hear Kate Winslet saying things like this when someone has the audacity to ask her:
We didn't realize how sassy this lady is!
We LOVE it!
Kate Winslet, who recently gave birth to a baby boy named Bear on December 7th, spoke to Glamour UK (you can see her gorgeous cover HERE) about how there never was any doubt her son would take her last name.
And not her husband's — who's Ned Rocknroll.
Talking about her decision to give her son her last name, Kate opened up and revealed:
She may have played a character named Rose, but she's got some thorns if you mess with her!
Kate Winslet's image has been attacked by a group called Fathers4Justice who have used the actress' photo along with a quote that reads "Kate, every child deserves their father this Christmas".
Well, the actress' team immediately heard about the campaign's intentions and fired off a letter to Fathers4Justice that claimed the advertisements were
That's a low blow!
But a new ad campaign by Fathers4Justice have attacked the award winning actress for comments she made a long time ago!
The ad, which you can see (below), features a b/w photo of Kate Winslet and says underneath:
