Kate Winslet Plans a Break From Movies

Kate Winslet wants to turn her back on Hollywood because she’s sick of life in the spotlight.

The Titanic star feels overexposed after winning an Oscar earlier this year for her role in The Reader, and receiving critical acclaim for her performance in Revolutionary Road.

And she is so desperate to take a back seat, she is eyeing a stage role in a musical.

Winslet says, “I think I have to take time off. I’m sick of me and I’m sure everybody else is, too!

“But I would love to do some theater. It would be a good challenge. I need to keep scaring myself. And that would sufficiently scare me. Maybe a musical or something completely different.”
