Since we happened to catch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind the other night for the 30th time, and since it’s one of our favorite movies and possibly our favorite romantic movie ever, we feel it’s time to revisit that controversial thing we once said about Kate that got a lot of people yelling at us. We’re naughty that way.
Kate Winslet covers the latest issue of Vanity Fair Italia magazine photographed by Rafael Stahelin.
Gorgeous, right? Not a thing to be said in criticism. But you know us, we’re always game to give it a try.
The thing is, we really miss the Kate who was quirky and a little messy and had a couple (literally) extra pounds on her and got ruddy-cheeked when she got emotional, which was often. Ever since she made it her business to get that Oscar (and then got it), she’s been working such a look of sandblasted perfection and it’s getting really old. Come back to us, Kate. You don’t have to be a goddess. It took Nicole about a decade to figure that one out and now she can move her face again. Not that we’re talking about cosmetic procedures; just the idea that she has to be some sort of porcelain movie star now. If anything, that’s what killed Mildred Pierce. She’s become so mannered now. We’re all about a lady getting in touch with her inner diva, but we’re ready for Super-Glam Kate to take a rest for a while so we can see the return of the Kate who said things like “womb ferret” in a nun’s habit or had really sloppy sex on a washing machine. She’s so much more fun.
Okay, yell at us.
