Kate Winslet is known to bring charm and grace to any award function and there is no doubt that she makes people stop and stare every time she walks a red carpet. However, when it comes to other women who walk the carpet, Kate seems to have some strong opinion about how they should be dressed.

Talking to Pret-a-reporter, Kate spoke about how some people dress up just so others would look at them. "There's something sort of uncomfortable to me about seeing women who are clearly presenting themselves in a way that's designed to make people stare," she said. "But not for the right reasons."

Kate added that she is not interested if people comment about what she is wearing, rather she cares about having a good conversation with another. "When I walk into a room, I hope to have interesting conversations with people; I'm not interested in whether people look at me or not. In fact, quite the opposite," she said. In the interview, Kate opened up about how her dressing is largely influenced by her late mother Sally, who died from liver cancer last year.

She added that according to her the best outfit is something which draws the least amount of attention. "If I have to come to an event, it's always nice to feel a bit pulled together, but nothing that draws too much attention," she said. "My mother always said, 'I don't like show-offs, please don't wear any show-off clothes." 

Kate, who rose to fame in Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio in 1997 said that her mother always insisted her to keep it simple. "Even when I became the me post-Titanic, she would still say, 'Please, darling, don't wear anything that draws too much attention." The actress even opened up about Harvey Weinstein and how she chose to stand against him whenever he tried to take advantage of her and her success. 

"For my whole career, Harvey Weinstein, whenever I've bumped into him, he'd grab my arm and say, 'Don't forget who gave you your first movie.' Like I owe him everything," she said. "The fact I'm never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again as long as I live is one of the best things that's ever happened and I'm sure the feeling is universal."
