Kate Winslet Cover Shoot

Kate Winslet Initially Thought She 'Probably Couldn't' Play Her 'Wonder Wheel' Character

Kate Winslet reflected on the 20th anniversary of “Titanic,” how she joked with Leonardo DiCaprio on set, and what it was like to work with Woody Allen on “Wonder Wheel” in this behind-the-scenes interview from her Variety cover shoot.

During the interview, she revealed that she was “terrified” to take on “Wonder Wheel,” and she almost passed on the role because of that fear.

“I think the most terrifying thing about playing Ginny is that after reading the script for the first time, I just sort of sat completely still, thinking about how I probably couldn’t play her, actually, and that really, he should just ask somebody else because I genuinely didn’t think I knew what to do,” she said. “And I think I sort of had to have a good chat with myself and tell myself to get it together and just toughen up.”
