Eve Mendes loves Kate Winslet

Why amazing Kate Winslet is Eva Mendes’s role model

Movie star Eva Mendes is one of Hollywood’s most sultry actresses – yet she admits she’s envious of Kate Winslet.


However, the 34-year-old Hitch star says it’s not Kate’s perfect size 12 physique she covets  ER………….. rewind Kate is now a toned size 10 not 12 – but the film parts she gets.  Eva says: ‘I would steal Kate Winslet’s roles. All her roles. Don’t talk to me about it because she can do no wrong in my eyes.’


Admirer: Actress Eva Mendes says she a big fan of Kate Winslet and would love to get her hands on one of her roles

Eva says she greatly admires the acting skills of the 33-year-old British star, who has been nominated for an Oscar five times and is tipped for two more nominations for her roles in The Reader and Revolutionary Road, in which she acts with Leonardo DiCaprio for the first time since 1997’s Titanic.

‘Not only is she the most amazing actress in the entire world, she’s nude in a lot of her films which shows she’s just fearless.’

Eva added. ‘Her choices are impeccable. She literally can do anything. If she can just give me two of her roles, I’d be happy.’

Eva, who is dating producer George Gargurevich and appearing in new movie The Spirit, is obviously a
fan of Brits.


She recently revealed that she has a crush on Oasis star Liam Gallagher and loves comic Benny Hill.

Dita Von Teese working out

Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese keeps her pin-up image by working out in full make-up – you go girl!

Most celebrities put on baggy sweats and a  cap some put on dark glasses so they will not be recognised when they are  working out, but not burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese, who put fellow celebrities to shame at a Hollywood pilates centre this week.


To look this good you have to work at it and like Kate Winslet who has found her new friend Pilates! Dita loves it too.

Famed for her retro 1940s look, the ex-wife of Marilyn Manson didn’t disappoint with perfectly coiffed hair and flawless make-up including signature red lipstick.

Nor would an old vest suffice for the elegant 36-year-old’s workout, instead opting for a black form-fitting T-shirt and capri-length leggings.

The Burlesque star was in full make-up, including her signature red lipstick.  A girl always has to look her best!  The dancer, who has become famous for her risqué dance routines, barely worked up a sweat as she went through her exercises, which appeared to be a series of stretches.

Former ballerina Von Teese proved her flexibility, lifting her legs high above her head with the guidance of an instructor at West Hollywood’s Windsor Pilates.  The burlesque star, whose real name is Heather Sweet,  apparently didn’t deem her sports kit appropriate attire for the streets though. Following her class, she emerged from the centre in towering heels, a sweeping black coat, and leopard-print scarf.   Like I said a girl always has to look her best.

Polished right down to her manicured fingertips, she carried a gold Eiffel Tower keyring for her car keys.

Von Teese is most famous for her ‘martini glass’ routine, in which she ‘bathes’ in a giant cocktail. She has many celebrity fans, and has performed for the cast of Ocean’s Thirteen, which includes George Clooney and Brad Pitt.  That’s because she looks great and is very hot and sexy!


Thanks to her signature lip colour, Von Teese has also fronted a M.A.C. make-up campaign, for which she cavorted on a giant lipstick like a bucking bronco.


Kate Winslet and Pilates a true friendship

Kate says “My stunning new figure is down to just 20 minutes of Pilates a day”

Kate’s body has undergone many transformations over the years – sometimes, to her horror, thanks to a little computer wizardry, as past blog entries have said.   But Kate Winslet claims she has achieved arguably her most perfect figure thanks to a simple exercise regime.

Guess who’s got a new look for the New Year: Kate Winslet in her sultry shoot for Elle, in which she reveals her figure is due to 20 minutes of Pilates a day

The mother of two was once a 13-stone teenager but not she proudly shows off her svelte size ten physique in her latest shoot for fashion magazine Elle.   The 33-year-old Titanic star, who is married to director Sam Mendes, was apparently furious when a dramatically altered photo of her – with thinner legs and a flatter stomach – appeared on the cover of GQ in 2003.  She has since attacked Hollywood’s obsession with skinny women.

'I've achieved my ultimate figure,' says Kate Winslet, in her interview with this month's ELLE Magazine

‘I’ve achieved my ultimate figure,’ says Kate Winslet, in her interview with this month’s ELLE Magazine.  The actress dismisses suggestions of gruelling exercise regimes or faddy diets being responsible for her new look.  Instead she insists she has slimmed down thanks to regular Pilates sessions at her home which she has done since having her second child five years ago.

‘I’ve actually been this way since I had Joe,’ she said. ‘I still don’t believe in this craziness for being skinny, but I eat sensibly and I don’t stuff down chocolate biscuits.   ‘I don’t go to the gym because I don’t have time but I do Pilates workout DVDs for 20 minutes or more every day at home.’   She still describes herself as a ‘very vocal drum-beater for normal women’, although she adds: ‘I guess I have to admit I do care what people think. I hate people thinking I’m some pretentious fraud.’  Miss Winslet’s latest film is Revolutionary Road, for which she has received a Golden Globe nomination.

It is directed by her husband and in it she appears alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, the first time the pair have worked together since Titanic in 1997.  Read the full interview and see Kate’s exclusive shoot in the February issue of Elle, out on January 7.

Kate Winslet stars in her most controversial role yet in 'The Reader'

Kate has been looking particularly sensational on the red carpet and in general recently and this may well be the reason.  If you are going to strip down to your birthday suit for all to see you have to know that your body looks good as you know that it will be scrutinised by many, from the film crew to film goers to the press who will go for the jugular given the chance! Kate will probably say she did it for her art – the file.  But, by happy coincidence, it helps to silence her critics, too.   Kate Winslet has stripped off and bared (almost) all in a passionate scene for her new movie, The Reader, a role which has seen her receive her fifth nomination for a Golden Globe.  These stills shown here prove that her figure is, indeed, as slim as it appeared in a recent magazine shoot.

Kate who is 33, has been at the centre of several airbrushing controversies over the years and some recently see my other entries about Kate and the airbrushing.  The latest involved the Vanity Fair article, in which semi-nude pictures appeared to have been heavily altered.   The magazine confessed there had been a ‘minimal amount of retouching’. In 2003, GQ magazine admitted altering its cover photograph of the actress to make her appear thinner. Miss Winslet, who has always championed fuller-figured women, claimed she did not give consent for the digital effects.  ‘I don’t want people to think I was a hypocrite and had suddenly gone and lost 30lb, which is something I would never do,’ she said.  In 2005, a poster image of her to advertise the film Romance And Cigarettes was tampered with.   In The Reader, which is to be released next month, Miss Winslet plays a Nazi war criminal, Hanna Schmitz, who has an affair with a 15-year-old boy, played by David Kross.   An insider revealed: ‘It is an extremely controversial role. It’s a pretty bleak movie.

Kate bares nearly all in her new role

“There is quite a bit of sex in the film. It’s realistic. Kate had no problems going nude.   ‘She’s done nudity before and it doesn’t concern her.’   After their sex sessions, Hanna insists the boy, Michael, reads out German literature to her.   Hanna then mysteriously disappears, and the action jumps forward eight years, where Michael is attending law school and observing a war crimes trial.   A group of middle-aged women who had served as guards at a satellite of Auschwitz near Cracow are being tried, and he’s left devastated when he sees Hanna is one of them.    During the trial, it is revealed Hanna took the weak and sickly women and had them read to her before they were sent to the gas chambers.   The insider added: ‘He is determined to see some good in Hanna despite her past.’  A spokesman for The Weinstein Company, which produced the film, said none of the scenes featuring Miss Winslet had been digitally enhanced.  ‘Anyone who has seen her at any of her recent premieres will have seen what great shape she’s in,’ the spokesman said.

Kate Winslet Bares all!

Kate Winslet has on many occasions appeared on the front page of a fashion magazine.  When she appeared on the front page of GQ the furor started saying that the photo had been changed.  That her legs had been extended and she had been trimmed down as photos taken two days before showed Kate with her fuller figure.  Well it’s not fuller it is just plain a simply a good shape and a decent size!.  A good size! Just right, shapely!

Here is the GQ front cover, which Kate apparently said that she was “disgusted” that they had airbrushed her.


Released in 2003 and caused a stir.  Then in 2007, Vogue was accused of airbrushing Kate again on their front cover.   It could just be a soft focus lens, and anyway which woman would not like to look perfect especially if she is appearing on the front cover of Vogue?


Six years on and now more children, one wonders whether her opinions – like this new image – have become a little more soft-focus, but I thought that it was soft focus before.  There is so much pressure on celebrities and gain a pound and the press is on your back and make that celebrity feel bad. The weekly mags make a bundle from printing pictures of celebs looking less than beautiful and there and we as the general public like looking at them, less than perfect.  I suppose it makes our normal lives feel better!

The 33-year-old star has posed for her most explicit photoshoot yet, sprawled seductive and naked – except for stockings and stilettos – across a fur(Let’s hope that it was fake!!!)-covering a velvet chaise longue.

Striking: Kate Winslet looks stunning in the Vanity Fair shoot

You look at the pictures and the question raised is, is this really Kate Winslet?  A few golden touches and photoshop or adobe professional has been used to trim and define the very lovely features of Kate Winslet.
The December issue of Vanity Fair featuring Kate is out on Friday, you can see for yourself up close and personal at that time !

Vanity Fair December 2008

According to professional photshopper he said the following

The face: ‘There is no real detail in her face. Any detail or wrinkles have been removed. There are no eye bags, contours and smile lines. ‘The whites of her eyes have been cleaned up and are now a really clean, crisp white. I’d say her lips have possibly been made slightly fuller as well.’

The skin: ‘Her skin has generally been retouched all over so she has no lines or blemishes at all. Her skin is completely perfect.’

The hands and feet: ‘There are no wrinkles or lines or veins on her hands and feet and this just is not natural.’

The figure: ‘Her back and lower body have been pinched in to make her look thinner and to give her some curves.

‘Her bottom has been rounded off so it looks nice and pert. I would be very surprised if her bottom was like that naturally. Her thigh appears to have been made slimmer so it appears more toned.

Au Natural Kate this week.

Kate Winslet

Kate mother of two – Mia, eight, and Joe, five – is currently promoting the upcoming film Revolutionary Road.  So all publicity is good.  And a spokesman for Vanity Fair said of the latest photoshoot: ‘Kate really did look fabulous and hardly needed any retouching at all. ‘Just a little smoothing of the skin tone and covering of blemishes. ‘There was no change in the body shape. She really does look that hot.’

But the question still remains unanswered was she or wasn’t she ?  touched that is ….
