Kate Winslet

Sexy Hollywood star Kate Winslet was spying on elderly people from cafes to prepare for her role as a weary pensioner in new movie The Reader. The talented actress underwent a complete transformation in the make-up chair as her character, a former Nazi concentration camp guard. She ages 30 years for the on screen role. And Kate ensured her body language was realistic by going incognito in cafes to watch the elderly. She says, "I observed older people. I would watch them in cafes to see how they would stand up. "I didn’t mind looking in the mirror and seeing myself as an old hag! It gave extra dimension to the character. The make-up was very difficult to wear and really uncomfortable. "It was on the teeth, eyeballs, hands, feet and body. And it took seven-and-a-half hours to put on."
