Kate Winslet, 44, strips naked for lesbian sex scenes with actress half her age and says she’s proud of her body

KATE Winslet has revealed she was ‘excited’ to strip naked for lesbian sex scenes with Saoirse Ronan for their new movie.

Kate, 44, and Saoirse, 26, star alongside one another in upcoming romantic drama Ammonite, which tells the story of English fossil hunter Mary Anning and the married woman she had a relationship with.

Kate plays the role of Mary, while Saoirse portrays geologist Charlotte Murchison.

Speaking about the racy scenes, Kate told The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m nearly 45, and Saoirse is almost half my age. And to have an opportunity to be my real 40-something self, post-children, you know?

“I was just excited to say, ‘This is what it is. This is how I am now, and it’s very much not the body I had 20 years ago’.”

Kate is no stranger to stripping off for a movie role, and famously shared steamy scenes with her Titanic co-star Leonardo DiCaprio back in 1997.

But the English actress said she felt more confident than ever in her latest on-screen romp.

“I felt the proudest I’ve ever felt doing a love scene on Ammonite. And I felt by far the least self-conscious,” she revealed.

The mum-of-three also said the film’s director Francis Lee was “nervous” about filming the explicit scenes between Kate and Saoirse, so the women choreographed it themselves.

The trailer for Ammonite teases a naked scene between the two stars and also sees them sharing kisses as they grow close to one another.

Ammonite was filmed before the coronavirus pandemic began and was originally scheduled to be premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

However, the COVID-19 outbreak pushed it back until the Toronto International Film Festival, which kicks off next week, meaning the movie will have its world premiere in September.
