Actress and mom-of-three Kate Winslet is no stranger to the demands of working in Hollywood while raising children. In a new interview with Marie Claire, the Oscar-winning actress shares her thoughts on being a working mom and why, unlike other Hollywood stars, she refuses to complain about her situation.
“We’ve heard a lot from actresses recently about how difficult it is, but we should never be saying that it’s difficult because we are so bloody lucky,” the Oscar-winning actress explains. “It’s just not an OK thing to share. It’s always a juggle, but isn’t it for every working mother?”
While Winslet's career gives her the means to access many helpful resources for working moms, she says she finds it difficult sometimes to make the "emotional jump" between her work as an actress and her role as a mom.
"The thing for me personally is that it is a difficult transition, is that my life at home is just so different to my life at work," she said, adding, "It doesn't matter which of the two is harder, it's the emotional -- rather than logistic -- jump from one place to another that's difficult. The juggling of it all... we just get on with it. And we do, because we can."
