Kate Winslet Plays Along When Fans Mistake Her For Cate Blanchett: ‘It Happens’

Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant are reuniting onscreen once more in the new Max limited series, “The Regime.” The two starred together in “Sense and Sensibility” almost 30 years ago and for the Oscar winner it was “amazing” sharing the screen with him. “He kept saying to me, ‘How do you stay so calm Winslet? How do you stay so calm? I envy your calm,'” she told Access Hollywood guest correspondent Emily Orozco. “And I said, ‘Well, what’s the point in getting you know wound up or frustrated.’ And he was like, ‘Oh I know, dammit I need to be more like you.’ It was great,” she added. Since working with Hugh, Kate has welcomed two children, 23-year-old Mia Threapleton and 20-year-old Joe Mendes. While chatting with Access the 48-year-old gushed over her daughter and praised her for having such a strong sense of self. Kate also revealed she gets mistaken for Cate Blanchett “a lot” and they both go along with it. “It happens, it happens,” she said. “To be mistaken for Cate Blanchett is a huge compliment so I’ll take it, I’ll take it.” “The Regime” premieres Sunday, March 3 on Max.
