Actress Kate Winslet escaped a dangerous fire, rescued Richard Branson's 90-year-old mother, stars in "Contagion" this month and "Carnage" in November, and now graces the cover of V Magazine... what can't Kate conquer?!
The Oscar-winning bombshell admits she "hated" her nude scenes with Guy Pearce in mini-series "Mildred Pierce," declaring, "Listen, make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say, 'Oh, f***, let's do it' and boom. If you complain or procrastinate, it's not going to go away."
During a paradise getaway on Sir Richard Branson's private Necker Island, Kate Winslet awoke in the early morning of August 21 surrounded by fire in a "very frightening" situation.
The actress and her two kids escaped the blaze unhurt -- and Kate even managed to carry Branson's 90-year-old mother to safety.
"Contagion's" Matt Damon, 40, is the proud father of four daughters, and when asked by "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli if he would consider trying again for a boy, Damon replied he was "done," adding, "We're closing the shop. That's a wrap. Our life is full. I want to know our kids' names."
The actor commented on his pal Brad Pitt and the Brangelina brood, saying, "I honestly don't know how they do it. They seem to do it so effortlessly. I'm sure they're cloning themselves."
