Happy birthday Kate Winslet, the Oscar winner turns 39 today! With a long and already illustrious career, Winslet was an early and eager thespian. At the tender age of 11, Winslet scored her first gig in a Sugar Puffs commercial. She caught her big break at the age of 17 in Heavenly Creatures but claimed international stardom with her role as the redhead-socialite Rose DeWitt Bukater in Titanic alongside co-star Leonardo DiCaprio (we still love you Jack).
In 2009, Winslet’s performance in Revolutionary Road won her a Golden Globe. She also took home both an Oscar and Golden Globe for her critically acclaimed role in The Reader. Most recently, you could find Winslet playing Jeanine in this summer’s blockbuster Divergent, we can’t wait to see more of Winslet’s badass stunts in the upcoming sequel Insurgent out next year.
Here’s to the birthday girl: See the British beauty’s transformation throughout the years.
