Kate Winslet makes a shocking announcement

After being nominated for an avalanche of acting awards and having her picture taken with Daniel Craig, Kate Winslet is ready to stop being the best actress in the world – by quitting nude scenes cold turkey. Her latest role in The Reader could be the last time you see Kate Winslet do the naked stuff, according to Time:

When Daldry approached her about replacing Nicole Kidman, who had left the project in January 2008 after becoming pregnant, “I was concerned about whether I was skilled enough,” Winslet says. The nudity required for the film’s sex scenes didn’t unsettle her — though she now says, “I think I won’t do it again: a) I can’t keep getting away with it, and b) I don’t want to become ‘that actress who always gets her kit off.'”

“That actress who always gets her kit off.” I don’t get it. Is she walking around arousing small felines? Because that’s kind of messed up. Even for the British.
