Venice Film Festival: Kate Winslet expounds on projectile vomiting
Kate Winslet really has it all: an A-list career, a body to die for and a strong hold on projectile vomiting.
You heard us. Winslet, sweeping the Venice Film Festival with her adorable dresses and dangerous curves, is a pro at tossing her cookies on camera.
In the Roman Polanski-directed "Carnage," Winslet plays a neurotic wife and mother who loses her lunch at a seemingly civilized sit-down between two couples discussing a schoolyard fight between their boys.
"I had to contain a lot of vomit in my mouth which is not possible for a person to do," the actress said Thursday at a press conference for the film. "So without going into too much detail, it was a fairly complex rig, and there was some extremely clever CGI involved."
She really does lead a glamorous life. While the "Exorcist" moment might leave a bad taste in your mouth, consider Winslet's recent act of bravery in helping Richard Branson's mother escape a tragic fire on his luxurious Necker Island. If that doesn't help, there's always sawdust.
"Carnage" also stars Christoph Waltz, Jodie Foster and John C. Riley.
