Kate Winslet Hopes Oscar Can Vault Her Into Upper, Non-Nude Echelon Of Actresses

Sure, all but one of this year's Oscar-nominated actresses have done nude scenes during their career (there's still time, Viola Davis!), but the frequently-bare Kate Winslet is hoping that the topless buck stops here.

In addition to her six Oscar nominations, Winslet has racked up an impressive eleven citations on the Celebrity Nudity Database and this year was honored with a "Lifetime Skinchievement Award" from Mr. Skin (not that we know any of those sites or anything). Still, Winslet tells Time that those unclothed days may be behind her:

The nudity required for the [The Reader's] sex scenes didn't unsettle her - though she now says, "I think I won't do it again: a) I can't keep getting away with it, and b) I don't want to become 'that actress who always gets her kit off.'" But she wondered if she could handle a German accent, play Hanna convincingly into old age and find a foothold in a character who exemplifies the banality of evil.

Well, who couldn't do those things? The real feat is to do them nude (especially the old age part—you're in the makeup chair for a full day!). Sadly, this is what an Oscar within grasp plus the constant, neverending "Tell us about your body! Kinda bigger than most actresses, huh?"-ism has done to Winslet; we hope you're all happy when she films Titanic 2: Escaping the Challenger while wearing a burqa in every scene.
