Kate Winslet, 35, graces the cover of V Magazine this month and reaches in to pull out her inner goddess of Elizabeth Taylor.
Kate talks about how she looked up to the Hollywood icon:
"There was a real fearlessness in her... Back then, there didn't seem to be a rule book, and there was some expectation in terms of how glamourous a woman should look. There is sort of a coolness and aloofness to the way [Elizabeth Taylor] would look in posed photographs. In candid snapshots she was really quite soft, and she would really screw up her face. I do that as well."Kate opens up about how she feels about nude scenes in her films:
"I hate it! Listen make no mistake, I just get on it. I just go in and say 'Oh f*ck' let's do it.' and Boom. If you complain about it or procrastinate it's not going to go away. Its a profoundly bizarre thing to do. As actors you talk about it all the time. You can literally be tangled in sheets, and you turn to the other actor and say 'What the f*ck are we doing?' Dear Mum, at work today I had so-and-so's left nut sack pressed against my cheek. It's sort of unethical if you think about it in those terms."
