The 20-year-old daughter of 45-year-old Kate Winslet Mia, born during the actress’s marriage to director Jim Tripleton, followed in her mother’s footsteps, like many star children. She made her big-screen debut last year and is now continuing to develop her film career.
At the same time, neither Mia herself nor Kate tries not to focus the attention of journalists on their relationship. However, this morning the Oscar-winning Titanic star made an exception: she appeared on the TV show Lorraine and gave rare commentary on her daughter Mia’s acting career.
Winslet said that now Mia is in the Czech Republic and is preparing to shoot in the series. The star admitted that she always knew that the girl would want to follow in her footsteps. Kate emphasized that Mia bears her ex-husband’s name, thanks to which even many directors do not realize at first that she is the daughter of a Hollywood star.
What’s good for her is that she has a different surname. Because of this, she disappeared from the radar of reporters. Even at the auditions, people who chose her for their projects did not know that she was my daughter. This, of course, was very important for her self-esteem, – said Kate about her daughter.
In her last year’s interview timed to coincide with the release of her debut film entitled “Shadows”, Mia herself admitted that she could not believe her luck when she received an invitation to the first audition. The girl also spoke about her dyslexia and admitted that she had to work hard to learn the material for filming. Mia casually mentioned her star mom:
In fact, I didn’t spend a lot of time on the sets of my mom’s films. But watching this has always been a special pleasure. But then I just looked at it from the outside – it’s a different experience. Now I understand why my mother taught me that acting is hard work. She was right! And I love every second of this difficult profession.
Kate Winslet was with Mia’s father, Jim Tripleton, from 1998 to 2001. In addition to an adult daughter, the actress has two more sons from two different partners: 17-year-old Joe from second husband Sam Mendes and seven-year-old Bear from millionaire Ned Rocknroll, with whom they have been together since 2012.
