Winslets Oscar trophy in bathroom


LONDON: Winning an Oscar is a rare feat for many but actress Kate Winslet’s Oscar trophy is up for grabs for anyone who visits her bathroom.

The 34-year-old star who won the Academy award in the Best Actress category for The Reader last year, keeps her golden statuette in the bathroom so guests ‘can sneakily have a little (hold) and put it back down again,’ People quoted her telling the UK TV show GMTV.

“This is because basically everybody wants to touch it, everybody wants to hold it and go ‘Oh, my gosh,’ and ‘How heavy is it?’ So I figured if I put it in there, then people can avoid the whole, ‘Where’s your Oscar?’ thing,” Winslet said.
