Kate Winslet on Mare of Easttown Season 2, “We’re Not Going to Match…”

Hollywood star Kate Winslet, who won the award for lead actress in a limited series at the 73rd Emmy Award for her role in ‘Mare of Easttown’, believes actresses are now under less scrutiny for their bodies. She feels that the praise for her role as a junk food-loving detective in the show means a “huge amount” because she was body-shamed so much in her career earlier.

Winslet hopes the example Hollywood is starting to set will have a wider impact on society. Speaking to reporters in the virtual press room backstage at the ceremony, she said: “It means a huge amount, because it makes me feel that our industry is changing. I’m honestly starting to feel that, that the shifts are happening.

“And I think we’re finger pointing a lot less at women in terms of how they look, their shape. We stopped scrutinising them. In turn, what happens then, is that younger generations of women, who are not in our industry, start to feel OK within themselves too. And that’s more important than anything else. Because it’s up to us to be absolutely being real and representing ourselves with integrity and authenticity and celebrating each other and not judging one another. If we’re not doing that in our industry, then nobody else has a hope in hell,” adds Kate Winslet.

“So, I feel like with playing Mare, maybe we are shifting the dynamics of how leading ladies are seen on screen and that just warms my heart,” said the Emmy-winner. The actress also confirmed “there have been conversations” about Mare of Easttown Season 2, but there’s nothing definite in place yet, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She said: “Conversations are happening, but I think until scripts are in place that we can really respond to, and know what a full story of a Season 2 might be and where Mare goes. We’re not going to match what we already did, nor should we try, but we should do at least provide something that’s as captivating and entertaining as Season 1.”
