Kate Winslet’s Workout: 20-Minute Pilates Videos
You won’t see mother-of-two Kate Winslet sweating it out at the gym.
“I don’t go the gym because I don’t have time,” Winslet says in the February issue of UK Elle. “But I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home.”
Speaking of those steamy love scenes, Winslet says it’s all her, enhanced with body make-up and good lighting.
In an industry where appearance is everything, Kate Winslet has her own way of staying in shape - her favorite Pilates DVD.
“There are two things I’ve never been offered: one is cocaine, the other is a body double,” she tells the mag.
The 33-year-old mother of two continued, “I still don’t believe this craziness for being skinny, but I eat sensibly and I don’t stuff down chocolate biscuits.”
She confessed that she doesn’t do the typical gym routine like many of her peers, as her schedule doesn’t permit her to do so.
Revolutionary Road star Kate Winslet isn’t into the Hollywood trappings of trainers and two-hour gym workouts. Her weight-control method consists of sensible eating and 20 minute workouts with a Pilates DVD.
And, Winslet says, she’s been the same since she had her second child, Joe, five years ago.
Despite a set of stunning, sexy shots in Elle that show off her body, she is modest about her shape, calling herself “pretty average.” She adds, “I have cellulite, I have a rumply tummy and my boobs have dropped. I did think that post-kids, my sex scenes days were over.”
Far from it. Both her current movies – Revolutionary Road, directed by her second husband Sam Mendes, 43, and costarring Leonardo DiCaprio, and The Reader – contain sex scenes.
Winslet also talks about her enduring friendship with DiCaprio, the Titanic costar with whom she broke box-office records a decade ago. “He’s part of the family and I love that he’s matured into this kind, dedicated man. When we work together we instinctively know what the other one is thinking.”
As for the legacy of Titanic, the English-born New Yorker says she has an “absolute fear” that her daughter Mia, 8, is now old enough to watch the biggest movie of her mom’s career while on a playdate. “It may sound silly,” she tells Elle, “but I want that to be something we all share as a family.”
