I didn’t want to go to Hollywood because I remember thinking, ‘God, if that’s what they say to me in England, what will happen when I get there? ‘ It also interferes with the evolving impression of what is beautiful, you know? I felt very alone. For the simple reason that nothing really prepares you for … that. But then of course I got Mia when I did Was 25. And so the whole shit just kind of … evaporated, “explains Winslet.
