Cast your mind back to that scene in Ricky Gervais's Extras where Kate W is dressed as a nun making a film about the holocaust, and Gervais's character stops her to sycophantically tell her he is also an actor, hoping for some bonding and pearls of wisdom, and to thank her for keeping the holocaust memories alive. Winslet's character says she's not doing it for that but she's noticed how many films about the holocaust automatically win oscars. It's a squirmingly uncomfortable but observant scene, and rather bizarre now, but thankfully she won because she gave a great performance. Ironic though.
Iremember seeing winslet running round the stage of the Royal Exchange half naked (we have that in common at least )in the early 90's in What the Butler Saw.
