Inside, she talks about how the last four years of her life have made her the woman she is today. These past few years have included her first Best Actress Oscar, a split from husband Sam Mendes and a recent third marriage, to Richard Branson’s nephew, Ned Rocknroll (born Abel Smith).

“I’ve really learned a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now — about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the characters I have played — and I’m grateful for that,” says Winslet.

She adds, “I have so much more material to draw on for work — rubble, bricks — and I know I can carry it now.”
