Kate Winslet Covers V Magazine

For their Fall issue, V Magazine features the absolutely gorgeous Kate Winslet channeling the late Elizabeth Taylor on the cover and within their pages. Asked about Taylor, Winslet responded:

"There was a real fearlessness in her. Which in old Hollywood perhaps didn’t feel quite as prevalent. Now, actors and actresses can bend the rules a lot. Back then, there didn’t seem to be a rule book, and there was some expectation in terms of how glamorous 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."

After winning her Oscar in 2009, Winslet took a bit of a break only to return to the spotlight this year with an Emmy-nominated starring turn in HBO's Mildred Pierce. She also has two films coming out in the next few months, Contagion (this weekend) and Carnage (November). There's no substantial Oscar buzz for her work in either film, though we'll see what the landscape is in the next few weeks regarding her Carnage role.
