Kate Winslet Didn't Thank Harvey Weinstein During Oscars Speech on Purpose

Kate Winslet is opening up about working with Harvey Weinstein on The Reader and how she purposely didn’t thank him when she won an Oscar for her role in the film.

The actress told THR about how Weinstein distributed her first movie and that he never let it go.

“He would come up to me every time I saw him, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie!’ He didn’t ‘give me’ my first movie — I auditioned for four months. Peter Jackson gave me the part. But, you know, how dare he even sow that seed in my mind, that in some way any part of my career had anything to do with him rooting for me or pushing for me or putting my name forward,” Kate said.

“He was just so horrible to deal with,” Kate added. “I was one of the ones he would label ‘difficult’ because I wouldn’t do the things he would ask for me to do on a business-level…. These were ridiculous requests…. He didn’t like me because I wouldn’t be bullied by him.”

Kate also opened up about how The Reader was supposed to be released a year after it came out in theaters, but Weinstein decided to release it at the same time as Revolutionary Road, her movie with then-husband Sam Mendes.

“I just thought to myself, ‘Well, if I can just get my own back in some way at this awful man, I’m not gonna thank him. If I happen to win that Oscar [for The Reader], I am not going to say thank you,’” Kate said. And she didn’t thank him.

Marina & The Diamonds Calls Out Kate Winslet & Other Actors for Still Working With Woody Allen

Marina Diamandis, otherwise known as Marina & The Diamonds, isn’t sure why actors like Kate Winslet are still working with Woody Allen, despite the molestation allegations made against him years ago by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Fallow.

“How come Woody Allen goes free? I don’t understand how any sane or moral person can still work with him + feel OK about that,” the 32-year-old singer-songwriter wrote, quote-tweeting Rose McGowan on Friday (December 8).

“I believe Dylan Farrow. Always have, always will,” she then wrote.

“Can you imagine accepting a job where your boss has child sexual abuse allegations against him AND he married his adopted daughter, but you, as a grown, financially secure human just go: ‘I don’t know anything, really, and whether any of it is true or false’,” she added.

The last part of Marina‘s tweet is a direct quote from Kate, who was asked about working with Woody on Wonder Wheel.

'Titanic' Director Reveals Why Rose Didn't Make Room for Jack on the Door

Director James Cameron has finally answered the question many Titanic fans have been asking since the movie was released twenty years ago…why didn’t Rose (Kate Winslet) share the door with Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) while waiting for help in the freezing cold Atlantic Ocean?!

“The answer is very simple because it says on page 147 [of the script] that Jack dies. Very simple. . . . Obviously it was an artistic choice, the thing was just big enough to hold her, and not big enough to hold him . . . I think it’s all kind of silly, really, that we’re having this discussion 20 years later. But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die. Had he lived, the ending of the film would have been meaningless. . . . The film is about death and separation; he had to die. So whether it was that, or whether a smoke stack fell on him, he was going down. It’s called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons,” James told Vanity Fair.

James continued, “I was in the water with the piece of wood putting people on it for about two days getting it exactly buoyant enough so that it would support one person with full free-board, meaning that she wasn’t immersed at all in the 28 degree water so that she could survive the three hours it took until the rescue ship got there. [Jack] didn’t know that she was gonna get picked up by a lifeboat an hour later; he was dead anyway. And we very, very finely tuned it to be exactly what you see in the movie because I believed at the time, and still do, that that’s what it would have taken for one person to survive.”

Of course, Jack dies after freezing in the Atlantic Ocean while Rose survives.

If you didn’t know, Titanic will be returning to theaters for a limited engagement!
