In the new issue of Glamour, actress Kate Winslet shares the most important qualities she’s trying to instill in her children, Mia, 10, and Joe, 7.
“I always want them to be regular kids who are grateful and respectful of other human beings. I want them to know that when we fly first-class, that they are lucky.”
“The highest compliment I could ever receive about my kids — and I can say that this does happen frequently — is when the in-flight crew say to me, ‘Your children are wonderful. They are so well-behaved.’ Every time I am told that, I could weep.”
She also explains why she doesn’t open up about what caused the split with ex-husband Sam Mendes:
“I am nervous about the day that Mia can Google [my name]. That’s the reason I am so careful not to talk about the question that people always ask of me: ‘So what actually happened between you and Sam?’ That explanation will never come out of my mouth. Never.”
“When my children want to know what actually happened, I want to be the first person they have that conversation with. I don’t want them to read something and believe it, when it probably isn’t true anyway.”
