    Cool Happy Birthday, Kate Winslet — Today, October 5, You’re 37 Years Old

    Happy birthday, Kate Winslet! As a triple Libra (Sun, Moon and ascendant), it’s no wonder your likability lights up the screen! Pluto on your ascendant adds the necessary gravitas for you to be compelling in any role. As the stars settle in your house of marriage, it appears your amicable split with director Sam Mendes will set the stage for a refreshing new beginning in your love life.





    She is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous women in cinema today. On screen, she blows your socks off with her performances.
    Elevated to dizzying heights early on in her career, thanks to 'Titanic' (1997), she was even nicknamed the 'English Rose' after her much-celebrated character in the movie.


    Thereon, the daring British actress effected anti-trend career moves to make her mark. She continues to amaze critics and audiences alike.

    Kate was applauded for her refreshingly healthy, un-emaciated figure in the film, also earning a Best Actress nomination for her performance, making her the youngest actress to ever receive two Academy nods ('Sense and Sensibility' and 'Titanic').

    Kate on success: 'My skin still crawls if you call me a movie star. I get embarrassed. I think, don't be ridiculous. Maybe it's because I'm British. To me, Julia Roberts, that's a movie star. But when people do call me one, that, I think, is an enormous compliment but, my God, is that a responsibility!

    Producers were so impressed with Kate's song for the soundtrack of the movie 'Christmas Carol: The Movie', they released the ballad 'What If?' as a single, which reached the top ten in the U.K.
