Kate Winslet Defends Her Baby Name: “I’m a F–king Grown-Up”

57th Annual BFI London Film Festival - "Labor Day" Premiere - Arrivals

Kate Winslet and husband Ned Rocknroll recently welcomed a son who they have named Bear. Kate defends the unusual name, commenting that she is capable of making adult decisions for herself and it is no one else’s choice. She also comments on the possibility of passing on the Rocknroll name to her children, saying that she naturally chose Winslet as her new son’s second name:

“We haven’t ever really had that conversation; it was always going to have my name. Mia and Joe have it as part of their name, so it would be weird if this baby didn’t. Of course we’re not going to call it RocknRoll. People might judge all they like, but I’m a f–king grown-up.”

Kate admits that being an actress can be difficult and she often still wonders if she is any good:

“Acting is bloody scary. I still have moments when I think ‘I can’t do this – everybody thinks I’m absolutely sh*t.”

The ‘Titanic’ actress admits she finds it sad that the media can criticize her personal life and her own romantic decisions because she doesn’t see why they can judge how she lives her life:

“It’s quite sad that we live in a nation where the press choose to be unkind about the fact that I [had] a baby. It baffles me, truly, that you can publicity treat a person like that. It’s not very nice. I’m really sorry to be the nation’s press that I fell in love and got pregnant; I do apologize if you deem that irresponsible.”
