This isn't going to be beauty based - in any way, but it needed to be done.
I have indirectly been watching a few films with Kate Winslet in recently, I don't choose them because of her presence, she just happens to be popping up in a few. But, from this run of events, I have grown to love her as an actress (..and person for that matter).
I'm almost certain that everyone knows of her appearance in Titanic, and I'm almost shocked when people haven't seen it. It is one of my back of the mind favourites, but I never really liked her in it, I don't know if it was her, or her character or her portrayal of the character, either way, she didn't catch me then.
The turning point came in 'The Reader'. For those of you who don't know it, she plays a German woman who falls in love with a 17 year old school boy, it follows their story together and continues even when they are separated without choice. I really recommend this film for those who haven't seen it, I cried a lot, and it's pretty serious, not one that can be watched in the background, plus, it deserves your full attention anyway.

I prefer her more vintage portrayals because I think she can handle that role so well and despite me saying this wasn't a beauty post - I do hold a bit of hair envy here...
