Is anyone else super pumped for Divergent?!  I love the books, and I have plans to see the movie this Friday!  Can't wait!

After the premiere last night, Shailene Woodley, who plays Tris, told reporters, “I love being thought of as a symbol of female empowerment at the age of 22 — that young girls are going to see me as that.”

Are you seeing Divergent this weekend?

kate winslet and ned rocknroll

Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet and her husband Ned Rocknroll have chosen an unusual name for their newborn son.

His official birth certificate reads Bear Winslet, according to a spokesperson for the high profile couple.

They wed in a private ceremony in New York in December 2012.  Rocknroll is the nephew of Sir Richard Branson and works for Virgin Galactic, the space-travel division of his uncle's business.  He was born Ned Abel Smith, but later legally changed his name.

Ned, 36, and Kate, 38, currently reside in South Downs National Park in West Sussex.  The 'Titanic' star gave birth to her husband's first child at National Health Service Hospital in Sussex County in England on Dec. 7, 2013.

Winslet has two children from previous marriages who live with the couple.  Daughter Mia Honey Threapleton, born in London, is 13.   Son Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes was delivered by his famous mother ten years ago yesterday in New York City.

Kate's latest movie, 'Labor Day,' will hit U.S. theaters on December 27, 2013.  Her film performance has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama.

kate winslet and ned rocknroll

Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll were secretly married earlier this month in a private ceremony that was attended by her two children and a few family members and friends.

Rocknroll, who used to be Abel Smith until he legally changed his name, is the nephew of billionaire Virgin Group founder Richard Branson.

The couple met on Branson's privately owned Necker Island, part of the British Virgin Islands.  They have been a couple since the fall of 2011 and got engaged during the summer of 2012.  In September they relocated permanently from New York to a home in the UK.

British media is reporting that actor Leonardo DiCaprio gave away the bride, his former 'Titanic' co-star, at the private New York ceremony.  She reportedly informed her parents of the nuptials after returning to London with her new husband.

This is Kate's third wedding.  She was previously married to Sam Mendes and Jim Threapleton.

kate winslet gets her face painted

The finishing touches have been applied to the face of actress Kate Winslet and her waxwork likeness is now on display at Madame Tussaud's in London.

Her double is dressed in an Elie Saab dress with cap sleeves, the same dress the actress wore in mid-September when she accepted the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries for her portrayal of Mildred Pierce Beragon.

Winslet gained hero status in August when she rescued the elderly mother of billionaire Richard Branson as fire destroyed his Necker Island paradise.

Check out a side-by-side comparison photo below.  We think that Madame T definitely got this likeness just right.

kate winslet was a hero

Actress Kate Winslet is being hailed as a hero after carrying the elderly mother of billionaire businessman Richard Branson to safety early Monday morning.

According to the Virgin Group boss, "She carried my Mum out of the house.  My Mum, Eve Branson, is 90 and can walk but it was more just to speed the process up than anything else but anyway, she was great.  She swept her up into her arms and got them out of the house as fast as possible.

A lightning storm with 90 mph winds struck at 4:00 a.m.  Fire erupted after lightning struck the main house, with flames 100 feet high.

Winslet, on the island with her two children, Mia and Joe, and her model boyfriend Louis Dowler, sprang into action when she realized that they needed to immediately evacuate the burning structure.

Branson and his wife and son were staying at a nearby villa.  He ran toward the burning mansion as soon as he realized that it was on fire and came upon the fleeing occupants.

Necker Island, a resort property that will accommodate 28, is reportedly worth $100 million.

kate winslet wins lawsuit

Be very careful what you call actress Kate Winslet...or you may ended up paying big, just like the The Daily Mail did.   The British tabloid lost a lawsuit for $40,000, for publishing a story that ripped Kate for allegedly lying about her fitness routine.

Interesting, when you consider that half of the population lies about their fitness routine.  The article in question was titled, "Should Kate Winslet Win an Oscar for the World's Most Irritating Actress?"  Winslet took offense, citing the fact that it damaged her personal and professional reputation.

The court sided with the actress and ruled that The Daily Mail must print a public apologize to the actress AND pay her $40,000.

Read what Kate had to say after the ruling and see a complete Winslet photo gallery at PopEater.

Titanic star Kate Winslet has been nominated a sixth time for an Oscar.   Her brilliant performance in The Reader as a woman with a Nazi past, has Hollywood buzzing.

How does Kate prepares for such big events?  She does nothing!  There will be no prepared acceptance speech, no special diet or exercise routine and above all else - no special dress.

This was Kate's response when asked is she is on any crazy diets or detoxes.

" N.O.!  I absolutely do not.  I'm very sort of relaxed and vocal about these things.  I have not done a stitch of exercise since October.  I literally have not had the time.  And I'm not going to eat normally, I'm not going to make cuts.  If I am keeping it together, it's by a wing and a prayer.  I just want to enjoy this."

Bravo Kate Winslet!  Check out the rest of what Kate had to say about her seemingly charmed life in this  People magazine inteview.
