Kate Winslet was born on October 5, 1975 in England. They are the daughter of Sally Anne (née Bridges) and Roger John Winslet. The family had limited financial means, enjoyed free food subsidies, and was named financial support by the actor’s Charitable Trust. When Winslet was 10 years old, her father seriously injured her foot in a boat accident and had to work harder. Winslet said that her family has always cared for them and they are a supportive family. Winslet St Mary and All Saints Church attended the UK primary school.
Together with their sisters, they participated in amateur stage performances at school and at a local youth theater called Foundations. She said she was chubby as a child, nicknamed “the whale” by her schoolmates, and was bullied for her appearance. She said she didn’t let this beat him. At the age of 11, she was accepted into the Redroofs Theater School in Winslet Maidenhead. The school was also an agency and took students to London to audition for acting jobs. She appeared in the Sugar Puffs commercial and dubbed for foreign movies. She became the head girl at school, appeared in Alice’s productions in Wonderland and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and played the role of Wendy Darling in Peter Pan. She participated in more than 20 of her stage productions, but she was rarely chosen as the lead role due to her weight. Yet she also played key roles such as Miss Agatha Hannigan in Annie, Mother Wolf in The Jungle Book, and Lena Marelli in Bugsy Malone.
Winslet was among 175 girls who auditioned for Peter Jackson’s psychological drama Heavenly Creatures (1994) and won the role. The New Zealand-based production is based on the Parker-Hulme murder case in 1954, and Winslet played Juliet Hulme, who helped her friend Pauline Parker.
While filming the movie Dark Season, 15-year-old Winslet began a romantic relationship with actor-writer Stephen Tredre. She considered him a significant influence in her life and lived with him in London. The couple separated in 1995, but remained close until they died of bone cancer two years later. Winslet missed the premiere of the Titanic to attend the funeral. She said in an interview in 2008 that she could never forget her death. A year after Tredre’s death, Winslet met Jim Threapleton on the set of Hideous Kinky. They married in November 1998 at the elementary school in Reading and gave birth to their daughter Mia in 2000. They divorced in 2001. Shortly after leaving Threapleton, Winslet met director Sam Mendes when she was offered a role in a play. She refused the offer but started dating her. Disappointed with the way British tabloids portrayed her private life, Winslet moved to New York. She married Mendes on the island of Anguilla in May 2003. Their son Joe was born the same year. Following intense media speculation that there was a relationship between Mendes and actress Rebecca Hall, the couple announced their separation in 2010 and divorced a year later.
Winslet admitted that she was heartbroken from the separation, but confirmed her determination to take care of her children despite their marital breakups. While vacationing at Richard Branson’s mansion on Necker Island in 2011, Winslet met Edward Abel Smith during a house fire, and Smith became her third husband. The couple married in New York in December 2012 and gave birth to their son, Bear, the following year. After returning to England, Winslet purchased a property worth £ 3.25 million by sea in West Wittering, Sussex, where Smith and her children lived as of 2015. In an interview she gave in 2015, she talked about how much she enjoyed living in the countryside.
