“To be in a situation where I’m auditioning for a film at age 17, let alone cast in the goddamn role, that was not supposed to happen to anyone with a surname that was Winslet.
“We were grafters who did acting in the back garden and maybe got paid for it sometimes… And then to be nominated for an Academy Award [for her role in Sense & Sensibility]. It was the stuff of dreams.
“Whenever I’ve been to the Academy Awards since then, I still think that it’s the stuff of dreams.”
