And Kate Winslet has revealed that she felt objectified when filming certain s-x scenes during her long and successful career.

Awkward: Kate Winslet revealed Monday that she felt objectified filming scenes at times in her long and successful career as an A-list actress.
Kate stars in the Francis Lee film as a real-life English paleontologist named Mary Anning who embarks on a secret relationship with Charlotte Murchison, played by Saoirse Ronan.
Of the many scenes in the film Titanic actress revealed: ‘We realized that by removing the dialogue, we could further explore the desire and depth of the connection between these two women.
‘I learned a lot. He felt very equal and very safe; we were not objectified in any way.
But that also made me realize that I felt a bit objectified in the past without knowing it. It brought up a lot of interesting thoughts for me.’

Kate has wowed audiences with a host of raunchy scenes in her previous movies over the years.
In 2008, she won an Oscar for The Reader, in which she played a former Nazi prison guard who seduces a teenager.
In fact, filming was delayed so that Kate’s co-star David Kross, 30, had his 18th birthday before filming the explicit scenes together.
And the award-winning actress also delivered the iconic line, “I want you to draw me like one of your French girls,” to Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic, before shedding her robes and posing N- on a sofa.

And I tell you, with my hand on my heart, that I have never been asked the same volume of questions about love scenes of nature, of which I have filmed many in my life. And to me, that’s a conversation.
Gemma Jones, James McArdle, and Fiona Shaw also star in the film, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to mixed reviews in September 2020.
Director Francis Lee told The Guardian that Ammonite has taught him a “real lesson in identity politics.”
The 52-year-old filmmaker, who also wrote the script, addressed the fact that some have questioned the historical accuracy of the character being in the same relationship.
He said: ‘It’s been a real lesson for me in identity politics. I know I can’t speak for Mary because I’m not a 19th-century paleontologist, but I think I can speak to her.
Star Cast: Ammonite also stars Gemma Jones, James McArdle, and Fiona Shaw and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
“What I tried to do was take this working-class woman, who hadn’t been recognized in her life, and elevate her.
