In the upcoming April issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K., Kate Winslet opens up about finding herself and her "soul mate" in the wake of the marital setbacks she's endured over the years.
“I’ve really learnt a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular. I think I can see more clearly now -- about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am and the characters I have played -- and I’m grateful for that," the 37-year-old told the magazine.
"I have so much more material to draw on for work -- rubble, bricks -- and I know I can carry it now. I’m not going to drop it, and if I do, I’ll sift through it. Does that make any sense at all? Probably not,” the Oscar-winning actress mused during her recent interview.
This isn't the first time that Winslet has talked candidly about her romantic struggles.
The actress -- who also graced the cover of Harper's Bazaar U.K.'s November 2011 issue -- told the magazine at the time that though her divorce from Mendes had been "hard," she was ready to embark on a new chapter.
"I feel that I'm just at the beginning of a new narrative, and it's incredibly exciting," Winslet, who was already dating Rocknroll at the time, told Bazaar. "It's complicated, I know, and uncertain -- but it's where life happens, between the cracks. It can be a painful process, but I truly hope that never stops for me."
“I actually keep saying it out loud. Last night I went out for a drink with two friends and, as we were walking, I said, ‘God, you know, I feel so good.’ Not in a, ‘Wow! I feel so good!’ way, but just in that quiet centered way. I’m almost surprised by it. I feel well, I feel healthy. I feel clear. I feel centered,” she said.
