Kate Winslet really has no idea how to play this celebrity gossip game.

She is supposed to get divorced, talk trash about her ex and maybe make a sex tape with a new boyfriend, only to complain about how it got out and then star in a reality show.

Instead, the Oscar winner has to be all mature and grounded, as evidenced by her interview in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. Asked about ex-husband Sam Mendes (the pair divorced in March 2010), Winslet replied:

“It’s fine, it’s really fine. I’m not going to s***fling, there’s no point in even going there… We’re grown-ups at the end of the day, and however hard it’s been for me, it’s been equally hard for him. And we have a child together who we both love – and raising him together, jointly and without any conflict, is absolutely key.”

Come on, Kate. What are we supposed to do with that?!?

After struggling for a period of time following the split, the actress now says “I do truly feel that I’m back,” adding:

“I feel that I’m just at the beginning of a new narrative, and it’s incredibly exciting. 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.”

Winslet was mostly recently seen in Contagion and will next appear in Carnage opposite Jodie Foster.
