Kate Winslet couldn’t help but gush about her husband Edward Abel Smith, who she wed in a heated barn in the Catskill mountains, near New York, nine years ago. 

While reflecting on her happy marriage with the 43-year-old nephew of Sir Richard Branson, formerly known as Ned Rocknroll, Winslet, 45, raved that her spouse is a ‘superhot, superhuman, stay-at-home dad.’

Although the pair share a seven-year-old son, named Bear Blaze, the star said her partner does an ‘especially’ great job looking after her.

‘He looks after us,’ she said during an interview with the New York Times. ‘I said to him earlier, like, ‘Neddy, could you do something for me?’ He just went, ‘Anything.’ 

She added: ‘He is an absolutely extraordinary life partner. I’m so, so, so lucky.’ 

‘For a man who is severely dyslexic, as he is, he’s great at testing me on lines. It’s so hard for him to read out loud, but he still does it,’ Winslet noted.

She also praised Abel Smith for always staying calm by eating a vegan diet, yoga, breath work and cold water swims. 

Despite not planning on ‘meeting and marrying a woman who is in the public eye and therefore having been so judged,’ Winslet said he handles the spotlight well.

In addition to their little boy, she has a daughter Mia, 20, and son Joe, 17, from previous marriages to Jim Threapleton and Sam Mendes.

In order to realistically portray a middle-aged woman in her new HBO limited series, the Oscar winner said her character is ‘a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age.’ 

‘I think we’re starved of that a bit,’ she said of the scarcity of unfiltered and realistic female bodies on film and television.

Winslet, who turns 46 in four months, also noted her ‘days are getting a little bit numbered of doing nudity.’

‘I’m just not that comfortable doing it anymore. It’s not even really an age thing, actually. There comes a point where people are going to go, ‘Oh, here she goes again,’ she explained to the outlet. 

Previously, the actress said she got ‘very fit’ for the role since she had to do ‘a lot of running’ in the show.

‘It’s nice to sense that Mare was once strong in her youth, but I didn’t want to make her an impossible, superhuman forty-something-year-old,’ she told Emmy Magazine last month.

She added: ‘Mostly women aren’t like that. We do what we can in the midst of the juggle of everything else.’ 

As for the possibility of her returning to play Detective Mare Sheehan again, the star told TV Line she would love the opportunity.
