Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet gained worldwide fame for her role as Rose in "Titanic" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, but the blockbuster film seems like a mere blip on the timeline of her long and acclaimed career. The British actress has earned five Academy Awards nominations in addition to other Golden Globe, Emmy, SAG and BAFTA nods. While her repertoire is heavy on British period dramas, Winslet also shines in indie films such as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Little Children." She is married to director Sam Mendes.
