We want to wish Kate Winslet a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and show our love and support for an actress who inspires us with her amazing work ethic, talent, and support for women empowerment. The video combines some of Kate's most memorable roles/performances with individual birthday fan greetings closer to the end. Scroll down to see who helped with creating this video.
These are my words, written after I watched fireworks (set to music):
While watching fireworks, I try to notice each one. Our lives are like a blink of an eye to God (James 4:14: "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away."). Fireworks reminds me of each of our lives, each firework has just those few seconds to shine and be noticed, before they die and disappear. Some are so bright and big, and their light lasts a long time, some fade away beautifully leaving a memorable trail. Others disappear quickly without being noticed. Some never get off the ground. Some shine for a short time, but are so unique and vibrant that everybody notices them. Some fireworks completely and unexpectedly change direction. For all fireworks: This is their very short time to do as good and best as possible, and some fireworks do this greatly and some do not. Just like us.
Temporary article to save some notes I will put into a real article later:
About the Belfast Q&A that Kate did with Kenneth Branagh OMG the f*cking acting tidbits / tips in here areSmiling face with heart-shaped eyes. About listening fully w/o anticipating a reply, viewing many takes as "a chance to do it even better", not being too prepared, etc. Thank you #KennethBranagh #KateWinslet @GoldDerby @BelfastMovie @FocusFeatures
Why don't I just put every single acting quote ever from her, into one collection
this interview with Kate & Ivana Primorac. The ending, where Kate says Acting is about trying to be as un self-conscious as you can and as real as you can (YES YES YES):
and this entire interview:
Aren’t the concepts of beauty changing, we ask. What was considered beautiful at one point is not all that’s beautiful any more, correct?
Kate Winslet throws her arms up in the air and says, “That’s what I’ve always been saying. Everyone is beautiful: beauty comes from the inside, beauty comes from acceptance of oneself, it comes from acceptance of other people and not judging. I feel so excited that the world is finally, finally realising that beauty isn’t about having perfect skin. Beauty is in others. It’s in the world around us, it’s in acceptance, it’s in peace, it’s in patience, it’s in kindness, it’s in compassion. I feel so happy that the world is finally changing, and it will continue to change, I think.
In response to Jennifer Ettinger saying to me: "I can share you have the biggest heart". I said: "Hey Jennifer. It's interesting that you say this and that it made me cry. I usually don't think that a big heart helps in acting but it does. To be able to empathize (and thus believe) with another person's situation and to care about people in general. Because acting is not about pretending, it's about being real.
add: Recent people who I've talked/shared about Kate with: H, L, J
Was told by my acting friends that this is one of the most amazing books any actor can read. I AGREE. I finished this book in a few days (usually it takes me many weeks). I'm not going to give away any of the acting, and more important, the LIFE lessons. Just pick up a copy and read it. Coincidentally, a lot of Bryan's acting / life lessons match those that have been eloqently given by Kate Winslet. <smilie>
The saddest part of the book was Bryan talking about celebrity & fame, and how you can lose your privacy, not able to go anywhere, not knowing if you can trust people & what they may want from you. THANK GOD I'm not looking for fame or even attention, and I already know who my friends are. I just want to do incredible amazing work as an actor, tell stories, educate (including about #LGBTQ and what it actually is like being an out Asian woman). I want to challenge myself with hard roles and do this most amazing hardest job, and I want to be a JOY TO WORK WITH for everyone. Work hard but have fun every step of the way. I want to inspire and use my platform for good, with humility, honesty, and vulnerability. I want to be the voice for many people like me, who weren't born special, weren't born beautiful, werne't born privileged, but still lived / live the most amazing life, who overcame / overcome insurmountable odds to demonstrate success.
And yes, one day be able to work with #KateWinslet .
