The actress who won an Oscar for her role in Avatar: The Way of Water talks to media about how she was taken aback when her children chose the movie as their favourite of hers.

If her three children express an interest in seeing her work, Kate Winslet will gladly show it to them. However, this must be done on their own initiative.

Winslet, who is the mother of sons Bear, 9, and Joe, 19, as well as daughter Mia, 22, tells Media in this week’s issue that despite the fact that her children are not particularly interested in watching her films, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that a critically acclaimed film from 2004 is their older children’s favourite.

“Mia and Joe love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Love [it], and love the soundtrack,” she says. “So regularly, I’ll hear from someone’s bedroom, Beck blasting. I’ll be like, ‘That’s Eternal Sunshine.’ So that’s kind of amazing.”

“And that generation, there are specific lines of dialogue that they latch onto. My kids and their friends will quote back to me. They’ll be like, ‘Do you know who said that?’ And I’ll say, ‘No. Who said that?’ And they’ll be, ‘You did, Mom, as Clementine in Eternal Sunshine!’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that amazing line.’ So they are kind of clinging onto these things that’s really fun and certainly unexpected.”

Winslet was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in the film Eternal Sunshine, which also features Jim Carrey. The film was awarded the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

The Academy Award winner, who is a new addition to the highly anticipated Avatar sequel Avatar: The Way of Water, says that her children were also a factor in her decision to join the franchise, which reunites Winslet with her director from Titanic, James Cameron. Avatar: The Way of Water is set to be released later this year.

“I was just super happy to jump [into the world of Avatar] and very excited to be asked,” Winslet says of being approached to play Na’Vi leader Ronal. “He called me and described the role and I thought, ‘My God, that sounds amazing.’ And my kids were like, ‘Oh my God, Mom, you have to do it.’ I was like, ‘Obviously.’ I said, ‘Well, they’re going to send the script.’ They were like, ‘No, it doesn’t matter. Just you have to do it!’ ”

The actress, who was awarded an Emmy for her work in HBO’s Mare of Easttown, has stated that both her personal life and professional career are flourishing at the moment.

“One of the things I feel enormously grateful for is, I think, the times in my career when I have been able to use my voice wisely, and also times in my career when I’ve been able to set myself free from things that I had committed to in the past that didn’t sit so well afterwards,” she explains. “I feel that the time in my life I’m in now, I feel really super grounded in myself and very good and strong and solid.”

“My mind is really clear. I feel really grateful,” she continues. “I feel excited for a younger generation of actors too, because I can tell and I can see that a lot of the things I’ve always been talking about in terms of body image and using one’s voice and women standing in their power, I can see in the younger generation of female actors that they’re automatically doing it. They know how to stand up for themselves, to stand up for each other, to use their voices to say, ‘I’m not sure about that,’ or, ‘Maybe we could think of this idea instead?’ ”
