DUBROVNIK, CROATIA: Kate Winslet, who is presently filming in Croatia for her upcoming film titled 'Lee', was transported to a nearby hospital after she had a fall and injured her leg on the set as a safety precaution mandated by the production. Winslet, 46, will continue her filming schedule as she has since recovered and is in better condition, as per reports.

The 'Ammonite' star recently wrapped up filming on James Cameron's 'Avatar' sequel, for which she went to great lengths, including holding her breath underwater for seven minutes. Winslet tried to describe how it felt, saying that it felt "just wonderful," but she did admit that before she came back, she thought she had died. "God, it's just wonderful. Your mind completely drifts off," she told Observer magazine. "You can't think about anything, you can't make lists in your head, you're just looking at the bubbles underneath you."

Winslet added, "My first words [when I resurfaced] were, 'Am I dead?' Yes, I thought I died." She claimed that her husband Edward Abel Smith aka Ned Rocknroll had trained with her underwater even after things hadn't precisely gone as planned.

"You have to have someone there – Ned trained with me and he got quite good at the breath holding as well, but he did... black out," the 'Titanic' star revealed. The record for the longest breath-hold for a movie was held by Tom Cruise until Winslet broke it by staying underwater for more than a minute.

In a 2017 interview with The Hollywood Reporter's 'Awards Chatter' podcast, the seven-time Oscar nominee asserted that the joy she experiences while acting has not changed over time. "I love it more than ever, and I will still love it when I'm 75," Winslet said.
