 Winslet Returns to the Risky in 'Hideous Kinky' 
Yes Says Kate Winslet!
The Mirror 
JULIA Roberts waves to London fans at a film premiere on April 27th and raises the hairy question: Should women shave their armpits?  Unusually for a star of "wax to the max" Hollywood,  Julia has no qualms about saying No. But many women  - and men - disagree. 

 I have to admit I looked twice over breakfast at Julia's hairy pits. But I think it's all down to personal preference.  I don't know why she had not shaved for the premiere.   Maybe she is having to grow them for her next film - or  maybe her boyfriend likes them like that.  I think 'Well it's OK if you want to, why not?' I was asked to grow my underarm hair for my last film,  Holy Smoke. The director felt it would give a much more earthy feel to my part as a girl in an Indian cult group. Some men like hairy underarms. I can't say that is the case with my husband Jim. He prefers me to shave them and I can't imagine that this is a trend that will catch on in Hollywood. But I thought Julia looked stunning on Tuesday night. Premieres are such high-pressure events that I'm sure her underarm hair was the last thing on her mind.

Caine inks QUILLS deal 

 Michael Caine 


Among the first-run exclusives, the New York-L.A. debut of Kate Winslet's latest, "Hideous Kinky," got off to a good start with approximately $86,000 on 10 screens.

Review:  A New Tack for Kate Winslet 

The young woman in "Hideous Kinky," a new thoughrelatively obscure British-French film, just wants to get away from her life in middle-class England, so she heads to Morocco with her two young daughters, her colonial preconceptions and her 1960s naivete. She is played by Kate Winslet, who after "Titanic" can afford to take a role outside the mainstream to show what she can do.  It is her best performance yet, wrote British film critic Antonia Quirke. In one scene, Winslet learns that friends have moved away and taken her children with them. She has no idea where they are. Her wordless reaction, subtle, nearly invisible, but powerful all the same, "lasts for two seconds,  maybe three, but I'm still touched by the thought of it," Quirke wrote.

On FOX on Monday, March 22, 1999 the show ROAD TO FAME showed stars and their early work...which included KATE from 1992 in the sitcom GET BACK when she was 16! She played the 'snooty' daughter Eleanor and was in white flannel pajamas with teddybears! This was before she had sought out Weight Watchers to help herself feel better and slim down "sensibly". Great job Kate! Bravo!
