"Because basically everybody wants to touch it, everybody wants to hold it and go ''Oh, my gosh,'' and ''How heavy is it?'' So I figured if I put it in there, then people can avoid the whole, ''Where's your Oscar?'' thing," People magazine quoted her as saying on the U.K. TV show GMTV.
Winslet further mentioned she likes dressing up during the award season and is looking forward to 82nd Annual Academy Awards. She said: “It's great to wear lovely dresses and to just experience those moments of dress up, especially as a mum, because you get so few moments to feel good in your own skin and wear a lovely gown."
Washington (ANI): Kate Winslet has said she keeps her Oscar award she won for The Reader in her bathroom. The actress has placed the golden statuette in the washroom so that guests "can sneakily have a little hold and put it back down again."
