Curvy Kate Winslet is more concerned about what she'll wear to this year's (02) Academy Awards than whether she'll win a gong for Best Supporting Actress.
Titanic (1997) star has been nominated for her role in Iris (2001), but instead of worrying about her chances of success, Kate's busy planning her outfit.
She says, "It's all about the frock from now on. I hope I pull it off and walk out the door without the back of my dress tucked in my knickers. All everyone wants to know is, 'What are they wearing?' Then you're either in or out of the best- or worst-dressed columns. I ignore all that. "
"I just hope I'll be comfortable, because the ceremony's about five hours long and you don't want to sit there with anything you're wearing digging into you."
"You don't want to be bursting for the loo, but be too afraid to take your dress off because you might not be able to get it back on. "
She adds, "It's a fun night. You never know what's going to happen and it's wrong to go and hope you're going to win. You just have to go along and enjoy the party and make the most of it. It's an incredible event. "
