the Telegraph slut-shames Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet

Just in case you were suffering under the delusion that a highly respected multiply Oscar-nominated (and one-time Oscar-winning) actress was safe from having her morality decried and her parenting abilities questioned based solely on the fact that she has slept with more than one man, Judith Woods at the Telegraph is here to set you straight:

Three babies by three fathers – will it be third time lucky for Calamity Kate Winslet?

The Oscar-winner’s enthusiasm for marriage is surely not shared by her children

Kate Winslet is pregnant again, and I blame Leonardo DiCaprio.

No, he’s not the father (this time…), but remember that scene in Titanic where his character, Jack, is about to slip off into the icy Atlantic and bids Rose adieu by reassuring her she will live and go on to have lots of babies? Well, he missed one crucial detail; the dang dying fool only forgot to specify that they weren’t supposed to be by different fathers.

Which is possibly why Winslet, 37, is having a baby with her newest husband, Sir Richard Branson’s nephew, Ned Rocknroll.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her splendid performance in The Reader, always has a baby – but just the one, mind – with every husband, to keep it fair.

What her daughter, in particular, makes of Winslet’s revolving-door relationships can only be guessed at. But to the outside world, Kate, it just looks tacky.

And the abuse continues from there, and gets even more vile. Er, I mean, the appropriate condemnation of a dirty dirty whore who shamelessly shoves her slutty slutting around in our faces reaches a feverish and not at all psychosexual climax.

I hadn’t thought to wonder if Winslet was being tacky, because I find myself considering her sex life approximately never. Silly me. I must remember to continually remind myself that unless I and all other women can measure up to a cartoonish and impossible 1950s ideal of chastity and modesty, up to pretending that we have no interest in doing that, we have failed as ladies.
